Finding Your Music

Do you have CD’s available?

At this time I do not have any physical material available. You are free to burn your own CD of my music for personal use.

Where can I download your music?

All my finished work is available from Bandcamp. You can download for free, or pay what you like.

Requests

Can you score my game/film?

I am happy to discuss the opportunity of scoring your project. Please send me a message via my contact page.

Include a brief introduction to the project, how much original music you require, the foreseen distribution/ presentation of the project, and your project budget.

Can you create an original track for me?

I can create original tracks for you. Please send me a message via my contact page. Include details of what you are after, length, and budget.

Do you do speculative work?

I do not partake in commercial speculative work. All commercial projects require a contract and most typically a deposit upfront. However.  If you are an Indie artist, film maker, game designer etc. and you are on a low budget or even on zero budget. Write me an email and and tell me about your project. I do A LOT of creative commons work. And I do that for a reason. So if you wish to work with me just get in touch and we’ll work out the details together.

I’d like to send you something?

Thank you very much! I do not at this time accept any gifts or fan-mail. The most heart warming and lovely thing is to just enjoy my music, join me on Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud. Leave me a comment, share my music.
