A general FAQ for all commissions can be found HERE. For classical specific questions:

I don't see any mention of electronics, can you do a commission with electronics?

  • Currently, I don't do commissions that involve electronics (unless you are doing that yourself!). This is because I have a very limited experience with compositional electronics, so much so that I feel I would not offer a satisfactory commission for your project.

I have a question that wasn't answered, how can I contact you?

  • Feel free to contact me over HERE for any further questions!

I will respond to your request with a quote via email within 24 hours. If the quote is reasonable to you, I will then send you a copy of the "Commissioning Agreement" for us both to sign. After the first 50% of the commission fee is delivered, the composing shall begin!
