Composer, Music Producer

Ryan Douglas Michelsen on SoundBetter

My favorite things to spend time composing are intricate string progressions, lead hooks, and melodic buildups. I have written instrumentals for nearly every genre, and love the challenge of conveying emotions through nonverbal forms of communication.

Music is my favorite form of expression because it conveys emotion and memorable snapshots through sound. Since I was a kid playing keyboard and a teenager on a DAW, I have expanded my songwriting ability into many genres as an adult. As I learned to play behind a keyboard that was programmed with a variety of instruments and rhythmic styles, I naturally expanded my jam sessions over 20 years to include a vast array of tools I can use to emulate my ideas through my music. I find composing music is a bit of insanity, a lot of math, and entirely magical.

If you hire me I can write instrumentals for you, whether it be a backing element in your song or a full arrangement. Just give me an idea to write around and I will do my best to turn around a song for you, ready to be sung to or synced to your project.


Full Orchestra: 150$
As many instruments and transitions we can think of recorded into a magnificent work of contemporary art. This includes a music score for a full orchestra, composed of up to all the major instrument groups.

Instrumental: 100$
From Synthwave to RnB I can provide you with a solution. Need orchestra with only a few instruments? Electronic beats for a singer/rapper? Instrumental cover of a song? No matter the challenge I will do my best to give you a solution.

Solo Melody: 50$
Instrumental solo or hook
