Influences: Classical, electronic, video game music
I'm a solo game developer taking a month-long break coding my game to compose some tracks for it. The game I'm working on is an RTS where the player controls an army of monsters to play out their struggles in the natural world against other factions of monsters, so in its soundtrack I want to convey the feelings of wilderness, the untamed, and the experience of being nonhuman.
The additional challenge I'm under is to use only free (as in freedom) tools, software, and audio samples to create my music. I'm set up a fresh install of Ubuntu Studio and I feel ready to dust off my music theory knowledge and start composing!

Welcome to FAWM!
Excited to listen to your songs, @stevanae! I also use free tools, with a few exceptions: I compose on Ardour, using CALF plugins, ZynFusion, synthv1, Dragonfly Reverb and a few others. The only non-free tools I use are the OvertoneDSP plugins, because they're awesome and I like supporting companies that develop for Linux.
