Started on a guitar and ended up diving deep into studying orchestral composition, making it my daily bread. I made Black yet Full of Stars, ADE, Nightland, Oil and many more! I wrote and arranged for many genres, short movies and games, and I wanna keep working on new things and bring your vision to life! ---------------------------------------------------------- The one thing that makes me the happiest and most fulfilled while writing music for others, is to succeed into bringing other people's ideas to life, give them a new layer and a stronger identity. I try my best to stay away from the genres I know I wouldn't be fit for, but I try my best to make what I do fit in every genre. I worked for folk artists and arranged for death metal bands, produced a entire pop album for a songwriter and scored whole symphonic orchestra for the tiniest video game. I like dramatic arrangements and I like intimate things. I like spooky moments and I have a lot of fun writing the cheesiest possible solution. I just really like making music. Head to my Twine Portfolio, I did my best to upload as many examples and genres as I could! I hope to hear from you and that we get to craft a story together.

I am a music composer and I have 10 years of experience writing music for theater plays; I love to musicalize scenes. To accept the challenge to evoke the precise emotion of what the author/ director is thinking about is one of the activities I enjoy the most. Now, I feel ready to write music for any media like films, videos in general, video games and any other kind. My formal musical education began from classical forms going to experimental and contemporary music, then I am capable to experiment on that field too. Through the pass of the years I have had the fortune that my music has been performed at several festivals within my country and in other places out of it like U.S. and recently received an email where I was informed that one of my music compositions was selected to be performed at a festival in Chile. I also play classical guitar and I have been conductor on many concerts.

Hey, it's r0nnie! With experience performing live, composing and producing music, working with a band, and covering songs, I am well versed in all aspects of music.

This innate passion for song has helped me cultivate a good ear and all round musical skill with a quick turnaround time. I easily adapt to the styles of other musicians and clients that I work with, and am able to custom create pieces that will perfectly suit your needs. I would love to work with you on your next project! If you'd like to see more of my work, check out my YouTube and Instagram: shorturl.at/vyNR9 _Website not available.

Finding A Composer For Hire

Finding a freelance composer can seem daunting..

We’ve simplified the process.

Here’s a quick overview of how to hire a music composer on Twine:

  1. Post up a job
  2. Wait for freelance music composers to pitch on your project
  3. Review your pitches and choose a freelancer
  4. Negotiate your terms

Tips For Writing Your Job Brief

Here’s a statistic for you:

75% of the pitches for jobs online are from freelancers who are not qualified to do the work

But why?

Because the brief doesn't clearly explain what the client needs, so freelancers pitch in hoping that the project might match their skills.

On Twine, we manually vet all the pitches that a client receives to save them from spending hours filtering out unqualified freelancers.

However, it’s still really important to make your project brief stand out by keeping it simple, yet detailed

Clear and concise job briefs allow freelance composers to quickly scan your requirements and determine if they’re a good fit for your project before getting in touch.

When pitching to composers online, make sure to include the following information in your job brief:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (and why)
  • The size of your project
  • Your vision for the project
  • Examples of styles you like
  • Target audience
  • Budget
  • Deadline
How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Composer ?

Composer rates vary significantly from project-to-project. For example, the cost to hire a game music composer for a full-length score may be significantly more expensive than the cost to hire a composer for a trailer.

When negotiating rates, you’ll be sent a quote by the composer based on the length of time the composition will take to produce.

Using the data from our platform, here are the ranges you can expect for a day’s work from a freelance music composer (7-8 hours):

Composer LevelJuniorMid-LevelExpert
Day Rate$150-250$250-350$350-500

Here are the price ranges in GBP:

Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire a composer?

Here's the deal

Stock music can be sniffed out a mile away.

And the worst part?

Stock music comes off as lazy, stale and impersonal.

Commissioning a vibrant and original soundtrack for your project will show your audience you mean business from the get-go.

Still not convinced?

Here are three other benefits of hiring a freelance composer over buying stock music:

Creative Control

Stock music forces you to try and make your project fit the soundtrack. Hiring a composer allows you to put your project first and fit the soundtrack to the project.

Consistency

Looking to create more than one piece of music? Working with a composer ensures consistency across not only your soundtrack, but your wider branding.

Price Point

High-quality stock music can be expensive, with most services locking you into a monthly subscription. Hiring a freelance composer allows you to pay for original, fit-for-purpose music as and when you require it.

How can music benefit my business?

Here’s another statistic:

24% of consumers are more-likely to buy a product when music they like is being played.

If you aren’t already using music as a core aspect of your branding, you should be!

But why is music such a powerful sales tool?

Here are the three main advantages that an original piece of music can bring to your business:

Speak your customers’ language

Align yourself with your customer base by using music that represents their values, interests and personalities.

Stand out from the competition

Be a business that people remember. An original earworm will set you apart from those forgettable royalty-free soundtracks your competitors are using.

Improve Customer Experience

Create an atmosphere your customers love through the music you use.

What’s the difference between a composer and a producer?

Great question:

Composers write & arrange original music. They usually work with clients who require a soundtrack for a visual medium, such as a commercial, film, explainer video or theater production.

Producers serve as project managers for the recording process. They work directly with both composers and musical artists to navigate the recording and ensure the end result is as good as it can be. While producers often work on soundtracks for visual mediums, they more-commonly work on commercial recorded music.

But what if you need both?

Luckily, many freelance composers double as highly-skilled producers and can handle both stages of the process. These freelancers will market themselves as a ‘composer/producer’.

If you require a freelancer who can handle both composition and production, make sure to mention this in your job description.

What are you waiting for?

Post a job on Twine now and be matched with a wide range of high quality composers for hire in a matter of hours.
