Hello all you talented composers. I would like to make the site more friendly and easier to use for all the different types of user. I thought I would start with composers 🙂
What would you like to see added or improved that would help you find work here or promote yourself?
I thought I would start by adding musical sub categories that you can tick in your profile.. Like classical, ambient, 8bit etc. That way, people can search for your particular style and could advertise roles for that particular style.
Would love to hear feedback and ideas so everybody feel free to chime in.
Also – please come and show off your work over here: http://ludust.wpengine.com/forums/topic/composers-show-us-some-of-your-work-for-your-current-ludust-project/

I joined yesterday, so I’m still getting a feel for the site as a whole, but sub-categories sound like a great idea. I’ll certainly offer my two cents once I’m more familiar with everything.
Yeah, being able to specify different styles would be a good idea. Just off the top of my head some styles you could include: Classical, Orchestral, Ambient, Electronic, Rock, Jazz, 8 bit, atmospheric. There will be loads more I’ve not mentioned. Anything else that pops into my mind that could benefit the composers on the site I’ll be sure to give you a shout.
Cheers guys, that’s helpful.
I appreciate the list of styles John. I want main categories like those you mentioned, rather than smaller or irrelevant (to games) genres like bluegrass.
I don’t know why I picked on bluegrass. Anyway, I will get this list sorted 🙂
Anything else composers would like to see to make their life easier here, let me know.
