I do. I spent that last two day seeing indie films at a festival (3 each day)
and will see 2 today and Saturday. That's why moonshield's statement
jumped out at me. I haven't seen this trend in indie films these days.
Sure, some films use no score at all, but the majority of indie films I see

moonshield, I'm pleased to say I've seen all the movies you mentioned. I
recall "Menthol" using some underscore. But I saw it at the SBFF over a
year ago. "Computer Chess" and the Haneke films are good examples.
I guess I'm just not seeing the trend you are.

Coming from a composer like myself, you shouldn't have a hard time. There are probably more composers out there than there are film producers.

I just thought I should post this image to show how ironic this is.

From the sound of it, their music has a lot of potential. Ya'll should give it a listen.

Also, there have been quite a few other composers who have shared their work here and have tried to capture interest, even just in the time since I joined. But I suspect many more have come before that.

You can also go to this electronic music forum and listen to various soundcloud cuts. I have been on the board for a few years now, so I can probably help you decide if someone is reliable or not. Many people there release their own albums and some do soundtracks. Most do ambient electronic and have a good sound design abilities. Plus, they are an entertaining bunch from around the world.

I gained my interest in film because of scoring a 60+ minute feature for an associate. I made the film better because it was a lot of dry spots. She use to buy beats from me. Scoring came natural because I loved playing to whatever is on the TV and I have an affinity for scoring. Likely I'll score my own films. As far as looking for a composer, I'll say take heed to their advice but nothing beats original music in my opinion.
