Hello!

My name is Kole Hicks and I create Music for all sorts of projects, but my main focus (and passion!) is Video Games. I'm currently Composing the Music for two very different, yet fantastic indie games... Pixel Piracy and Kenshi. That's where Patreon and potentially YOU come in...






What I'm Creating

The game industry is in a unique position at the moment where development is becoming more and more transparent, this is especially true for indie games. I've received approval from the developer(s) I'm working with to share something that is usually hidden from the public… The A to Z of creating Music for Video Games!


  • Inspiration - I'll go into detail about all the various music styles, artists, ideas, instruments, etc. that influence a piece.
  • Composing - Everything from Pre-Compositional charts/"blueprints" to the various Compositional techniques I apply (and sometimes even improvisation).
  • Revisions/Feedback - After chatting with the developer about the initial demo I send them, I'll sometimes receive revision requests and must make certain alterations to the track. I'll share why these decisions were made and how they impact the music.
  • Recording - I'll share everything from my recording chain to actual session footage and why I made certain recording decisions.
  • Design/Implementation - All effective game music has a wonderfully designed system to help it shine. I'll share information on the music systems I design, how I change the way I compose to conform to this system, and why I made these decisions.


  • Who This is For

    • Fans of the Game(s) I'm working on who want to know (and depending on the pledge "collect") everything about the Game.
    • Other (or Aspiring) Game Composers who want to learn more about the process of creating Music for Video Games.
    • Generous supporters who enjoy what I do, believe in the quality of work produced, and just want to show their appreciation!
