Thank you for looking into composing for Secret Chronicles again. It may be some days
before I can check out and think on the music you've posted, though I really enjoy
checking out people's compositions. Quintus may also reply to you soon; I'm
cc'ing everyone on our email distribution list in this email.
I hope things improve with your music releases on different sites. That kind of thing can
be a battle.

Let me be honest here. I've been really busy getting my music going since I also had a
good deal releasing my music on Spotify among other services. But since they closed down
I'm currently free for new assignments. I've invested around €1500 in new gear and
software, including a DJ controller, and a few really awesome synths as well as an
outstanding drum library that is suited for movie and game music. Another library I bought
is the famous Transform library for Kontakt that gives me all sorts of electrical
mechanical and outworldish sounds. A few examples of new songs I've composed that I
don't mind get into the game:
Johan Brodd - Native chants
A native american chant with a nice beat going, perfect for any mountaineous world
Johan Brodd - Days left to see
Eastern European influenced gypsy jazz with trumpet, violin, vibraphone, and guitar.
Johan Brodd - Under streams
Synthetic vibes with a fresh uplifting slow paced rhythm. Might be something for any
cavern levels or underwater levels.
Johan Brodd - State of flux
A very strange and oddworldy song. Like forgotten science being rediscovered and applied
with failing modern technologies.
Johan Brodd - Darker than black
A really hard hitting track with a very intricate flow and rhythm. Kinda chip tunesque,
but it tells a story on it's own.
This song is not meant for any game, but it shows the drum library and transform library a
bit in use:
Johan Brodd - No more sorrows

We have been working to add your contributed music to the upcoming release 2.0 of the SMC
Some of your music is possibly the best we have in the game -- I especially enjoyed your
To be more exact we are changing the name of the game to "The Secret Chronicles of
Dr. M". This is in order to remove "Maryo", a clear reference to
"Mario". We are likewise aggressively swapping out other Mario graphics with
new, original graphics.
We currently have about 4 programmers, 3 artists, and a number of beta testers. Quintus
is the project lead, and Luiji is second in command. Besides doing coding, I am also
leading the story development effort.
We are, however, with limited musician / sound artist resources. We may have reached
aakburns, but we still need more team members.
We need to find replacements for Mario music that is being removed,
and, most importantly, we need to have a new title theme composed. You are probably one
of the most qualified people to compose a theme.
Our code and assets are maintained at: Secretchronicles/TSC
Our new website (being developed) is at: http://www.secretchronicles.de/en/
Windows betas of the game are published at: http://www.secretchronicles.de/en/download/
