So I am musician, and have been toying with the idea now for doing a score to HoN. I would love to do some new epic battle music, etc... However I am not tech savvy enough to write a code to implement it. I have some experience doing scores for film and what not, so the music part I have down. I play about 9 different instruments, and have plenty of gear to record some very high quality and really amazing stuff.
So my request would be... If someone can write the code to implement it, I will write and record the music. I would like to do Lobby Music, Hellbourne Music, and Legion Music... Not sure if it is possible to trigger changes for where you are on the map, or if you have entered battle or what not. It would be cool to be able to trigger battle music, etc. If this all works out well, maybe I will go further and create music based on the character you choose, if triggers can be made for that as well.
If no one responds to this, then whenever I am done with the tunes I will post a link to download them and offer them free to any programers who wish to implement them into a mod!
Anyway, let me know! You can hit me up on here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Oh, but let me know on here you e-mailed me just in case spam filters catch it.
Bumping for great justice.
This sounds great, someone, give him some support :P

Trigger changes for where you are on the map
You have entered battle
Based on the character you choose
I'd do it

I think this would be more effective if you just made the songs and posted looking for people to convert them to the proper files and such. Someone will do it, I'm sure of that.
Alright Isaac... I am going to take your advice... Starting tonight. Bangerz thanks for the list of what I need to make. I will make a whole slew of music and alternate versions, and maybe take a vote on what everyone likes. I am going to make some seriously evil music for Hell Bourne, and heroic music for legion. This is gonna be fun... I shall start tonight!
Oh and Bangerz... I use all the Bang! mods! They rock! So I would be honored to collaborate. I am going to start with some devilish Hellbourne music. Thundering war drums, and all sorts of weird sounds.
So The Hellbourne's theme is well underway... Very evil and chaotic. Influenced by Penderecki, it is mainly percussion driven with a lot of droning instruments in the background... There is what sounds like an army of hungry souls chained down reaching out toward fresh meat. Trying to figure out what instrument will provide the main melody at this point... Right now it's mainly rhythm and sound oriented, the melody will play a part but won't be the main focus of this song.
The legion theme which I will tackle next will be very much the opposite. It will be very tight, melody driven, heroic, organic, and vivid. In general it will be much more organized, and keep more with older music theory.
Battle music I have in my head already, but haven't laid it down...
I will post the Hellbourne Theme for download once it is finished. Unlike most video game music, the majority of the instruments I have been using so far have been real... Real drums/percussion, real piano, etc...
