hey,

i have actually used a lot of brasses in jayce's, darius', pulsefire's and syndra's music. i agree that the power and drama they can add is just awesome

Praeco, would it be possible to compose more pieces less integrated with a character and more with other parts of League? For example. Summoner Rift's current music is pretty outdated and doesn't add any feel to the game. In contrast, Dominion has an epic orchestrated piece that changes through the course of the game. Can we see a new piece of music being written for Summoner's Rift? I would also approve of a client music piece as well. I feel your well-orchestrated music needs to be added to more elements of the game.

Keep up the fantastic work! You should share other pieces of music you have written, like a portfolio for artists.

The music that has been coming out for every new champ is awesome and really great but can you keep producing the music for the next 50 champions to come out in the later future? If so, how/why?

Is there also anyway there could be more soundtrack to the in-game music?

Will you make music for older champions?

I want a theme for ALL OF THEM!

Is it hard to write music for an orchestra / people playing live?

I like to write music and play around with digital instruments, but I can never wrap my head around writing for an orchestra, for other people to play. I mean with digital instruments all you have to know is how to play the keyboard/piano (and you can get around not knowing even that)...

I was wondering ever since the NA regionals, what was the soundtrack that was played during PAX games? its some sort of LoL theme remix... Can anyone help?

You're the kind of person that I look up to; the kind of inspiration I need to keep doing my own music no matter what. Hopefully, one day, I'll be within your ranks, maybe working alongside you! But for now, I'll keep doing what I have to do, and that is whatever I can with school and everything I can with whatever music I find time to make
Thank you very much for the kind words.

I truly believe that a person with talent and a consistent output of high quality music will always find his/her way in the big entertainment. At some point, when the creative work reaches a certain level of quality, it cannot be ignored.

Well, I certainly don't have the plan of stopping to make those pieces. I think they really help to define the champion and give one a good idea of what the champion's character is like when listening to them. Plus, it's also just a lot of fun!

We are definitely looking into more ways of bringing music to our players.
