Mount West Music (MWM) is a one-stop solution for game developers and publishers seeking original music that connects with a game’s design and narrative. We stand out in the game industry due to our deep understanding of both game design, programming, and marketing, allowing us to deliver a result that transcends commonly produced game music.
At the heart of MWM’s mission is a lifelong passion for games and music. This passion is reflected in the company’s unique approach to game projects, which considers not only Aesthetic but also Dynamic and Mechanical aspects of the game design. This means MWM is able to work with clients to provide a bespoke service that is both holistic and technically excellent.
We offer a range of services that differentiates us from other game composers. These include:
- Original adaptive music that is all written, recorded and implemented by us, saving your team much needed resources.
- Engagement in the early stages of development to aid in the process of pitching and hyping the game up.
- A life-long marketing plan for your IP that builds its efficiency from a well-crafted and engaging music soundtrack.
MWM also offers licensing music for use in video games, offering a deep understanding of music copyright and maximizing profit from the many ways that game music can and should be exploited. The company’s well-established network in both the music and game industries provides a significant advantage in licensing music for and from projects.
Unique and handcrafted music
Our approach to composition and music production is unique, with a focus on delivering handcrafted, high-quality music that elevates the overall gaming experience. Thorough documentation of the creative process is also a key feature of the company’s approach, offering players a behind-the-scenes look at how the music they love was created, allowing them to more fully appreciate the artistry and creativity that went into making their favorite games.
The company specializes in narrative games with high artistic and technical requirements, with a portfolio that includes adventure games, point-and-click games, and rhythm games. By harnessing a deep experience in modern production techniques and the ability to compose and arrange music for musicians in ensembles and orchestras, we offer a wide sonic palette for our clients.
Project management and delivery
MWM approaches project management using agile development and scrum methodology. This enables the company to be flexible and responsive to clients’ needs while maintaining a focus on delivering the highest quality product.
In summary, Mount West Music offers a one-stop solution for developers and publishers seeking original music for their projects. With a deep understanding of both game design and programming, a passion for games and music, and a focus on handcrafted, high-quality music that elevates the gaming experience, MWM sets itself apart from other music companies in the industry.
At our company, we are dedicated to the mission of providing the world with beautiful and emotionally captivating music that enhances the gaming experience and entertainment value. The founder of our company was born with a hearing disorder but found joy in playing video games that had melodies he could distinguish even when he couldn’t hear the sound effects.
After corrective surgery, he was able to fully appreciate the magic of music, and this experience inspired him to eventually start Mount West Music with the goal of sharing that power with others. Our mission is to give back the profound experience that we all had growing up with both games and music.
