If you are interested in commissioning us to produce original music for your project, we can offer the following:
use music we already have, e.g. music from this website and from our collection of premium stock music (cheapest option). For example, we have done extended versions of tracks, chopped out lead instruments for backing tracks, and produced edits of tracks. composition of new music based on the brief you give us. You can input into the process, e.g. listen to work in progress and make suggestions. For example, we have produced original music for a series of ambient blu-ray discs in surround sound (see Surround Sound section below)
We can compose and produce tracks rapidly if needed. Please contact us with your specific requirements.
Please note: we do not currently offer time-coded music.
Licensing & Pricing
The music we produce for you can be:
"exclusive" (i.e. you have unlimited rights to use the music how you want, and we cannot use it ourselves)
"non-exclusive" (i.e. we would retain the rights to use the tracks ourselves for Production Music Libraries or other uses, but not on the Purple Planet site)
The price for exclusive tracks will be higher than for non-exclusive. The price will also vary depending if we have to compose new music or edit music we already have.
Our standard charge for edits of existing tracks is $20 per track - delivered to just about any length, mix, and format you need. For that price we will also provide a license for distribution in CD format if desired.
Our standard charge for new music is $50 per minute for exclusive use, or $30 per minute for non-exclusive use.
We ask for a 30% deposit prior to the commencement of work, by credit card, with delivery of the final masters (in whatever format you require, e.g. mp3, wav, aiff) immediately the balance of payment is received. We issue you with the appropriate licence documentation on receipt of payment.
