What can I contribute to Eastern Front?
An orchestral (or non-orchestral) original soundtrack, tailored to the needs of the developers. As this is a game which centres around the Soviet Union, I'd be looking to create a patriotic, yet powerful soundtrack to match the Russian theme, and additionally the war environment that the game will be played in. I noticed that a music composer was not - as yet - listed on your 'Team' page - hence my reason for applying.
How active will I be?
I currently work on movie trailers, and have two indie game projects in various stages of development. However, such is the nature of freelance work (most composers are freelance) that there is enough time to balance multiple projects. I certainly would be available every day for communication and for discussion/criticism on my work.

The most appropriate track for you to listen to would be 'Brothers In Arms' - the 6th track in the playlist.
There is a mixture of all kinds of music there, some classical, some electronic. Some featuring live orchestra, some featuring computer-based orchestra.
I have been playing video games since I was 5 years old, when I wrote code into the ZX Spectrum myself to write games like Space Invaders. Those were the days when graphics were written in binary code! I am a heavy video game player so I feel I understand the medium very well compared with a lot of other classically trained composers. My favourite score of recent years is Garry Schyman's score for Bioshock.
I hope that's enough information for you to decide if I'm worth using or not.
Thanks for taking the time to read my application.
