Available to compose for projects!

It was a pretty epic year for me in 2014, releasing the solo albums Cuintha II and Power Suite as well as the OST for the Ninedotsstudio game GoD: Factory Wingmen.

2015 wont have as many album releases but I am interested in composing for some new promising games. Games that I would like to play myself, ambitious in concept, with either great innovative gameplay features or an in depth story, or even better, both. 

My preferred game genres:
- Sidescrollers with fresh gameplay features.
- Space shooters with epic combat.
- RPG's with either in depth turn based on action RPG combat with exploration.
- Stealth.
- Hack and Slash.
- Third person shooters.
- Top down shooters.
- The unknown that can't simply be labelled.

I compose with melodies in mind at all times and I don't particularly like ambient soundtracks.

I am very flexible in terms of payment, if a project is great but has low budget I am willing to compromise. 
If you like my music and you think I'd be a fit for your game, feel free to PM me. If you know of someone in need of a composer spread the word or let me know!

Have a good 2015, and let's continue to create!
And thanks for listening to my creations.

GoD Factory: Wingmen OST has been released!

2014-09-02 09:44:18 by DanJohansen
Updated

I'm here to present our first official game soundtrack for a game by the talented Nine Dots Studio called GoD Factory: Wingmen which is a 4 vs 4 multiplayer game with huge epic strategic battle with crazy amount of customization available which you can sink tens and tens of hours into. 

It was great fun composing this soundtrack, me and my brother Frank Johansen collaborated on the entire thing and really felt like it was right down our alley concept wise, it being epic Sci-Fi with unique concepts and all!

We got contacted by Guillaume of Nine Dots Studio here on Newgrounds and were offered to be the composers for the Namco Bandai published game and we were stoked, it really shows that Newgrounds can lay a foundation and lets you reach out to a wide audience of people and even attract industry professionals to listen to your music. So in that regard I want to thank the site for giving us an awesome place to release music.

Here is the cover art:

POWER SUITE RELEASE!

2014-06-14 08:21:22 by DanJohansen

Earlier this year, someone stole one of my tracks and had it released on an album, this curse made me worried about my other music, and since I have released many Rock/Metal tracks the last few years that have been quite scattered about I came to the decision to release 24 of the tracks I'm most proud of, both to get them into the Lime-Light a little bit more and to secure them from being stolen in the future. 

So I introduce to you today, my 5th album release POWER SUITE. 1 hour and 38 minutes of music for the cheap price of 4.99$ at Cdbaby.com. Or search me up on iTunes and Amazon for a slightly more expensive price. 

Here is the cover by my friend Doug Blaker:

Announcement of Cuintha II and Metal Project.

It's a new year so Happy New Year people!  I am happy to announce that I have started two new album project this year, one being a untitled concept instrumental power metal album, which I have got one track for already. I don't have a solid release date for it as of yet but it's probably gonna be some time during the first half of 2014.  As for Cuintha II, I am happy for the support I got for the first Cuintha project, and I truly enjoyed created the pieces and concepts for the album. I however did not feel like I did the world true justice with those tracks, I feel the world needs to be bigger and contain many more places and mysticms. So I've started making part II and I will release each track as it's finished, and one I got the whole album I'll release it as an official album. Here is the first track, River of Illusions: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/561792?updated=1
