1. Label Your Music As "Brony Music" Because You Are A Brony
2. Create Original Music Based On Characters/Events From The Show/Comics/ect.
3. Remix/Arrange Music From The Show
4. Write Music For Brony Projects
I should say that I normally write "Classical Music" (Classical in the sense that I use orchestral instruments) so someone who writes in other genres may have differing opinions.
1. A fair amount of people do this, mostly to try and get their music noticed. If you’re starting out, this isn’t a bad idea. It’s a good way to get some nice feedback from your fellow Bronies. Personally, though, if I’m writing original music, I’m not going to label it as “Brony Music” without a good reason.
2. This is probably my favorite kind of “Brony Music” to listen to, but not to write. I have tossed around the idea to write an Opera or Symphonic Poem of “FIENDship is Magic #1”. But, I can’t help but feel it would be kind of a waste. Many Bronies don't read the comics, but even less would give something that's seemingly as old-fashioned as Symphonic Poems a chance.
3. I still occasionally work on arrangements of music from the show, but most of my favorite BGM/Songs are already in the style that I write in.
4. I’ve been a Brony since the start of Season 2. I’ve worked on about 5 Brony Projects throughout that time, and most of the work I’ve done for them has yet to be released (and probably won’t in their current form). I don’t blame the people involved with these projects for this; most are well meaning people who just don’t have the time/don’t realize all that goes into what they’re doing and get overwhelmed, quitting the project. I’m currently working on my own Brony project, but I’m specifically doing something that doesn’t require others because I’ve been burned too many times.
There are some other things that do interest me. One in particular is some kind of Music Theory Class; hosted by Octavia and Vinyl Scratch or just taught by myself and/or other Brony musicians. If you guys have some other ideas of what "Brony Music" can be, I'd like to hear it.
