Music Commissions

I'm happy to do all sorts of projects:

  • Full songs with vocals
  • Soundtracks or background music
  • Jingles, intros/outros
  • Remixing or remaking your songs
  • Anything else that needs music

Base price: PHP 750 (Paid upfront)

Working price: PHP 500 per hour (Paid upon completion)

Optional advertising: +10% of final price (Paid upon completion)

 

You can claim a spot in the queue for free, the base price will only need to be paid once your spot has been reached. Contact information is on the home page, preferably via email.  Payment is via PayPal invoice.

 

To commission music, please describe your ideas and concepts, send references, or send any materials you already have (such as lyrics). If I accept your project, you will be added to the commission queue, and you will be able to pay the base price once you reach the first place in the queue. I will then write short concept pieces based what you've got so far, and let you select one to continue working on. After that, the base price is no longer refundable and the timer for the working price begins. Work-in-progress renders (along with hours spent and the current total working price) will be provided whenever I have made significant progress, or whenever requested.

 

If would like to add advertising, your song or project must be related to Japanese pop culture in some way. It will be shared to a student organization with over 200 members, and we will use the funds to create promotional materials (such as business cards) that can be distributed during conventions and other opportunities for publicity.

Lyrics

If you'd like me to write the lyrics, I can write in both English and Esperanto.

You are free to provide your own lyrics, which would greatly speed up the songwriting process (and reduce the cost!)

Rights

You may write your own contract for the terms of use of the music, such as where and when it will be released.

For example, the music may only be available via your video game soundtrack album.

If there is no contract, AND I was main or only contributor, I will post the music non-commercially to my own profiles (YouTube, Soundcloud, social media) and commercially to various platforms (Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, etc.)

This is intended to be handled on a case by case basis.

UTAU Voicebank Demos

This option is available to those who create UTAU voicebanks only.

 

Price: Pay what you want (PHP 1000 minimum, paid upfront)

 

You can claim a spot in the queue for free, and the invoice will only be sent once your spot in the queue has been reached. In addition to song information, you will also need to provide the voicebank download, voicebank language, and your payment amount.

 

Requirements

  • Single voicebank only (multipitch is okay, multi-expression is not)
  • Voicebank must be unreleased.
  • Preferred voicebank language is English or Esperanto. Providing lyrics in these languages is optional.
  • If your voicebank is made for another language, you are required to provide lyrics in that language.
  • Demo song will not exceed 5 minutes in length.
  • Full length of demo song must be published for voicebank release (whether it's a single song or a crossfade of many songs)
  • MP3 of demo song must be included in the voicebank's files upon release.
  • Cannot be restricted commercially (ex. "Buy this UTAU's debut album to hear the song")
