I'm making a game/film/thing and need music...
Awesome! Please use the contact page to send me details about you project and we'll take it from there!
How long does it take you to produce a full-length OST?
It depends. Anywhere between 2-6 months. Sometimes even longer, probably not sooner.
And how much will it cost me?
I can't answer that before I know a thing or two about the project. Send me some info and I'll give you an estimate.
I'm making a game/film/thing and I need music but I don't have any money...
Neither do I.
But we can share profit...
I'm happy to share some of your profits, I just won't write your music for free.
What if I paid you in goods and services?
Sure. I'll take a serving of good money on delivery.
Can I upload your music/album on YouTube?
No. (I've already done it myself.)
Can I use you music in a monetized/commercial video?
No. The only exceptions are, the video being:
Can I use you music in a non-monetized/non-commercial video?
Yes, as long as you provide proper credit and a link to my bandcamp.
I'm making a PWYW game. Can I use your music in it?
But, my game is about ending world hunger...
What if I shared it completely for free?
How about a demo?
I'm working on a student project and I'd love to use one of your pieces in it.
Feel free, as long as you only share it with your class & teacher and is not monetized or sold.
Can I live-stream your music?
Yes, as long as it's a) part of the game you're playing, or b) used as background music AND you provide proper on-screen credit.
Can I upload a remix/cover of your music?
Yes please! But do keep in mind:
Can I play your music with my band or in my DJ set?
How do you pronounce your last name?
Christodoulou. How do you pronounce it?
I want to be a game composer too! Any suggestions?
Yes! Study music, read, play games, read, study music, get a twitter account, study music, read, take long walks, study music and read.
I was hoping for a more hands-on approach...
Study music and read.
Study. Read. Got it. Can I study with you?
Yes! Drop me a line ;)
What kind of tools do you use to compose?
I'm using a thing called Mind, running on a thing called Brain.
Funny. I meant, what kind of software do you use?
Right... What software do you use to write music?
There is no software that writes music.
Ok, smart-ass, you know what I mean! Are you going to answer me or not?
I already did
Motherf...! Ok, I'm going to ask one last time: WHAT DAW AND WHAT PLUGINS ARE YOU USING TO PRODUCE MUSIC WITH?
Look, if you're going to be rude about it I don't think I want to continue this conversation. Good day.
