I create broadcast ready sound alikes or custom music for your project!
First Things First
This is about your needs & what adds a value to your project!
To deliver you a song that is perfectly suited to your needs we will work out everything I need to know together first :)
First I need your input. Please send me an example song that is similar in style/instrumentation/mood and describe me what the music should "do".
Now I will analyse the example and description you sent me. Then I will create the sounds/instruments needed and compose your custom sound alike song.
I will not use any premade loops to prevent any monitarisation problems or copyright infringements.
While composing and arranging I´ll make shure there are editpoints for easy cutting out sections like intro, outro, main, etc.
I now mix & master the song & send you a HQ wav-file.
If anything is unclear, just reach out, I will answer you all questions!

A: The process is: 1. First I need your input. Please send me an example song that is similar in style/instrumentation/mood and describe me what the music should "do". That means: Should it provoke a specific mood from the listener? In what context will you use the song (as theme, as background, advertising, etc.)? What are the the main point why you choose the reference track you sent me? What do you like most of it? 2. Now I will analyse the example and description you sent me. Then I will create the sounds/instruments needed and compose your custom sound alike song. 3. I will not use any premade loops to prevent any monitarisation problems or copyright infringements. 4.
