Custom made music service
Despite the vast selection of high quality royalty free music ready
to license "off the shelf" here at Shockwave-Sound.com, we realize
that there are times when our customers need something composed and produced
especially for them. We are now happy to be able to provide this bespoke
music production service via some of our highly talented and motivated
With custom made music (bespoke music) you can get music that is not
only tailored to your project in terms of feel and mood; but also synchronized
with your on-screen action. When you need the music to be perfectly timed
with events in your film, it can be hard to achieve that with pre existing
music. That's where hiring a composer and getting bespoke music made especially
for your project really comes into its right. Our guys will compose music
while keeping your video on screen and will synchronize their musical
cues perfectly to events or scenes in your film. Check out the demonstration
videos below for examples of this.
Once we have discussed your project, your requirements and a ballpark
figure price for your project, we put you directly in touch with the composers
and producers that you want to work with. At that point, you will discuss
your project directly with the composer; by phone, email, Skype, etc.
All our composers speak English (though they are based in different countries
throughout the world) and they are highly quailfied, experienced and organized
people. We absolutely vouch for their qualities, both in terms of actual
composing talent, and the ability to complete a project in a timely and
professional manner. These are people we've worked with for years.
- Prices start from US$ 500.00. This "startup fee" includes
the first one minute of music.
- Thereafter you are charged per second of music. US$ 8.33
per second (equivalent of $500 per minute).
- Examples: For 15 seconds of music, the price is $500.00. For one minute
and 15 seconds, the price is $500 + (15 x 8.33) = $624.95.
- Prices for "Dramatic trailers" are higher - details discussed
on a case by case basis. Some other projects may also cost more, if
they are very complex (For example, Live orchestra recording sessions,
several live studio musicians etc.), or if the project is going
to be distributed on a very large scale.
- The fee is for music tracks only and does not include adding
or creating sound effects or sound design to your project. In the videos
below, music and sound effects combine to create a full audio experience.
Our team can also create your sound effects and add them to your project,
but this is negotiated separately.
- The music fee includes all rights, for all media, exclusively yours,
in perpetuity. You may use the music within your projects, in an unlimited
number of projects, unlimited number of locations, unlimited number
of copies, unlimited broadcasts and distribution as long as the music
is part of your project (film, game, multimedia).
- The only thing you cannot do without a separate agreement is to actually
sell the music itself, on a music CD, or as music downloads. (E.g. sell
a soundtrack CD containing the music, or sell downloads of the music
in MP3 or other audio file format). These rights can be arranged,
but is negotiated separately and is not included in the basic price.
