Fedor Voronov

Composition/Arrangement

Fedor Voronov on SoundBetter

I am a singer-songwriter, who also does game and film scoring. I have previously worked as an arranger, my forte is work with small chamber ensembles. Have scored Balakirev's Russian Folk Tunes for orchestra (orchestrated from piano sheet score). I am open for any type of collaboration.

I can compose using both real instruments and sampled ones (the first one would require me to hire musicians and a studio space). I believe that collaborative work is the key to originality and generally is a more enjoyable process. I am Russia-Moscow based.

Interview with Fedor Voronov

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I have orchestrated a book of folk tunes collected by Milliy Balakirev, it did not matter to me that it was I who was making it, I just wanted to create beautiful content, and that is true to its core, I wish I could have done more to that project, but the budget puts its limitations

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: my own album, freelance little projects

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  8. A: both, you cannot and should not choose between one or the other

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: If they don't like the end project they can get a refund, but they on the other hand would lose the rights to the things I will have provided

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: creativity

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: always give deadlines but never make them strict, for instance, if you have to have the thing by the 30th, ask the person to do it by the 20th, this way both of you have time to fix things and make them better, always pay 30% upfront, this way, both parties are interested in committing to the project financially

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
