I'm not very good with music, so when the time comes I'll need help from a composer for my game. I'm unsure of how to actually work with one.
Despite my lack of musical understanding, I know what I like. I might listen to some music and think "Hey, this kind of music would be awesome to have in the epic chase scene near the end of the game, where our heroes just barely manage to escape!"
When I go to hire a composer to make music for my game, how much detail and reference music should I provide? Should I provide lots of long descriptions of what I'm after, lots of links to music that I think fits the theme? Or should I just let the composer play the silent game and work it out themselves?
