If you provide me with a few reference tracks, a brief/storyboard and a rough cut/final cut of your film, I can compose an original piece for you. On receipt of this information I will compose 2 or 3 demo pieces. Usually I can do this and have them emailed back to you to listen to by start of business the following day. I will then take on board any feedback you may have and edit and refine the piece chosen accordingly. If you don’t like any of the demos, I will compose 2 more for you to listen to. If you do not have any music references for your project, I am confident I can still create the music you want. Just drop me an email or call and we can discuss it, and I can have 3 demos ready for your consideration as a starting point. Once you have chosen a piece, I am happy to adjust and refine it to your requirements throughout the editing and post-production process until the final cut of the film is approved.
I know many of my clients have worked on projects in which they have used a commercially released piece of music, and are very happy with it until they are asked to pay an extortionate fee by the record company for the license to use it! I can create a piece of bespoke music that is inspired by the feel, sounds and energy of the commercial track but does not plagiarise it, thus avoiding high license fees and legal problems. Alternatively I can produce a cover version of a song if required, which can sound almost identical to the original. This will require permission from the song’s publishers, which can be time consuming, but will certainly be less expensive and difficult than getting permission to use the original commercially released recording
I can help if you have already selected music for your project, but need changes made to it – for example, some sections of the music to repeat, to playback faster or slower, if it needs augmenting with extra layers of sound, a dance beat/remix, some elements within the music need to be emphasised, or even just to tidy up and smooth out points in the music where it has been cut too abruptly. The audio software I use, as well as my skill, makes these sort of changes much faster for me to carry out than an editor using film editing software.
