Frequently Asked Questions
Original music can be very expensive, can't it? I don't think I can afford it.
Because I run my own facility, I am extremely flexible when it comes to budgets. I work on large and small budgeted projects. My overhead is very low because I have chosen not to set up shop in a major city and I pass these savings on to you.
My deadlines are really tight. How long does it take to compose original music?
I can write anywhere from 6-10 minutes of music a day. I am thorough but FAST.
How does all this work?
I work off of BetaSP or Quicktime movie files and I sync the picture to my audio system. I can provide the finished music on CD or post audio files like WAV and AIF to my web site.
What about rewrites? Everything can't be perfect the first time.
Rewrites are a part of the business. Generally, rewrites are a part of the original budget and won't cost you anything.
I don't live in CT. Does this matter?
Not really. I work with producers from coast to coast and around the world . There are many producers whom I have never met in person. With the phone, email, downloadable files, ISDN lines, etc., the work gets done efficiently and effectively.
Do you use any synthesizers? Don't they sound phony?
I use high end samples and sound libraries and when appropriate, real players to create my scores. My scores run the stylistic gamut from new age to jazz band, hip-hop to hi-tech, acoustic folk to orchestra, and everything in between.
If you drop a ton of feathers and a ton of iron off of a rooftop, which will hit the ground first?
Neither. It's against the law to drop things off of rooftops. Now go to my demo page and request something.
