The painting above is of St. Paul the hermit. My mother told me a few years ago "You should be a hermit". The
reason she told me that was because I spend hours and days indoors and don't go places all that often. Much
to the dismay of my wife sometimes. I do some small repairs around the house that need done or will go out
and tend to my yard, but most of the time you will find me in my home studio that I put together myself.
I did the DIY thing and built my own bass traps, monitor stands, ect. That approach saved me a lot of money.
So does that make me a hermit? No. The reason I spend most of my time in my studio is because this is a business. The music business. I compose music. I also run the business side of things. The part I love most about it is everything that goes in to producing music. I like to make things just right, especially for my clients. When they are happy, then I am happy.
They are both specially made. I do Bespoke or Custom music in specific genres for individuals following your ideas and criteria, after amounts and contracts are agreed upon. If I can't produce what you would like then I will tell you so. I don't want to waist your time or mine. I used to do a lot of music for free and credit when I started in this business, but as I've heard said "That doesn't put food on your table." I still do some free music on occasion for film students, but I have to like the project. You can scroll down toward the middle of the page and listen to some samples of my work.
No, not the kind that has a lot of books in them. Music libraries or production music libraries. I compose and produce quite a bit of music for music libraries. Exclusive and non-exclusive terms. To be honest, the exclusive production music libraries have been a tough nut for me to crack. I have had quite a bit of success with the non-exclusive music libraries though, something I'm greatful for. You can see my credit listing below.
