We are looking for composers to design the background music for the first level of an iPhone game we are developing named ‘Aztec Odyssey™'. As the game revolves around Aztec tribes, the soundtrack will be heavily influenced by tribal and indigenous American styles. This will be percussion centric using strong, driving rhythms. A selection of indigenous instruments from the Americas will also be incorporated.
The game will be introduced using a series of comic book style scenes showing the destruction of Tenochtitlan by angry Gods. The player will act as a friendly God who agrees to help a group of tribes people escape by guiding their boat along a river to escape the crumbling city. The soundtrack for this section should therefore convey suspense and urgency, using an upbeat tempo. Composing for mobile devices also has certain technical limitations so the dynamic range should be restricted.
The storyboard for the introduction is available to get an idea of the story and imagery that will set the feel for the first level.
The deadline for the competition is the 1st June.
Feel free to contact us with any questions, we look forward to hearing your compositions!
