Open for Commissions

by
Recently, I haven't had any hours at work, and we're kind of scraping by. The mice ate our sandwich bread, our fridge and pantry are bare, and all we had for dinner was Kroger Pizza Bites. I don't know about you, but I'm used to something resembling a home-cooked meal.

In light of our financial crisis, and since the album is almost done, I've decided to open for commissions.

I did a lot of research on the subject, and as it turns out, a professional musician charges around $1500 minimum for each minute of music composed on commission. Well, I'm not "professional," and you aren't a Hollywood film studio.

I checked out the only other musician in the fandom I know that takes commissions, and he charges $100 starting price for character theme songs. I figure since I'm a bit lower prestige and I can't provide sheet music, I'd cut my price in half.

So, here's the details.

$50 base commission price

base commission includes:
up to 2 minutes of recorded music
basic instrumentation
quality mix and master
license to use the song in non-commercial interests (I'm a BMI musician)

price may go up for things such as:
lyrics
vocals
guest musicians
extra length
complexity of composition

Send me a private message for a quote.




Now, for some people, this is going to seem completely unreasonable, but I assure you, the time and effort that goes into not only recording, but COMPOSING a custom song to YOUR specifications warrants the cost. Plus, producing a quality mix is a bitch.
That said, I may be willing to cut a deal. It depends. Contact me and see!

I'm opening immediately for two (2) slots! More will come in the future if this venture is successful.


1. Ricardo Fields (2 tracks)
2. Lando (trade)


TO CLARIFY:

the base price covers a completely original piece with basic orchestration (i.e. a string quartet or a rock band). If you just want me to cover a song or perform something you've written, the price would be lower :3

If you just want guitar, you wouldn't be charged for basic orchestration.

if you've written lyrics, I wouldn't charge for that service.

all projects are treated individually, which is why you must contact me for a quote. :3

thanks, I'll probably need it. it's sort of a last-ditch effort. I don't really expect anyone to commission me. But I really, really hope they do!

If I had a job (I'm currently at university) I'd totally commission you... Besides, I understand the effort put on the work of COMPOSING, SKETCHING, RECORDING, MIXING AND MASTERING a song. Really hope you get commissioned, Buck!! *looks at the crowd* I COMMAND YOU TO COMISSION HIM!!!

The prices depend on the musician I think, depending on popularity + need for money / site you are using

Like for instance, since there's such a small music fanbase on IB, music commissions might be better off being a tad lower when starting or even just mention it on somewhere like FA. I'm not sure if either you or the other musician would like me posting their prices on here so I'll PM you about them :3

I myself have no moneys atm so I wouldn't be able to get a comission even if I wanted to (and I oh so do!) :(

this is available on FA as well. I've put it up everywhere I show off my work. I think a uniform price is more productive. Also, check the journal in a minute. I'll clarify.

Well once I get some money flowing (should be by the end of the year after I can drive since I'll be guarenteed a job with that (yay farming)) I will talk about a commish :3
Gives me some time to maybe think up some lyrics or something!
