New, original music, created on demand, from idea through to finished CD.
How Your Music Gets Made
Step 1: Consultation
We meet, ideally face to face. We talk through your ideas, the message you want to
express, the emotions you want to invoke in your audience, the mood you want to create,
the genre you want your music to represent, whether you require instrumental only
or lyrics and a vocalist and so on. Anything is possible.
Step 2: Draft Approval
We meet again, so you can audition and approve a sample of the sort of music I have
produced to address your needs. At this stage, the music is not fully instrumented,
but synthesised so we can move forward quickly. We do this once or twice before:
Step 3: Composition and Instrumentation
Your approval gained, the serious composition starts, committing the music to high-quality,
sample-based instruments hosted on a computer, as used by most TV programmes etc.
You may of course also choose to use recordings of live musicians.
Step 4: Mastering
The work is nearly complete. Now it is given atmosphere and a final polish before
delivery in your preferred format, e.g. CD or WAV file or compressed to MP3 for Internet
Step 5: Licensing
The business end - your broadcast and usage rights.
