We are proud to provide a specialist custom service allowing for the creation of tracks upon demand tailored exactly to your requirements. You can specify cuts, transpositions, repeats, tempi, rubato and expression, even alternative endings.
We’ve had a great many happy collaborations, producing highly tailored accompaniments for a wide variety of artists in all sorts of genres.
No two songs ever present the same challenge to an accompanist – one may be short but extremely complex; another may be long in duration but relatively straightforward; some songs with uncomplicated vocal lines have extremely challenging piano accompaniments.
We quote for each recording according to the song’s complexity and length, in terms of bars. We factor in your particular requirements or directions and the degree of urgency for delivery. Our level of service calls for much collaboration in order to get as close to your ideal as possible. We’ll ask for very precise directions (tempi, dynamics, rubato, reference recordings) from you before we begin the job.
The turnaround time depends on our other commissioned work and recording schedule. The cost varies with the duration and complexity of the piece. We can provide most projects within two weeks, but offer an express service for jobs needed within 48 hours.
Step 1: Get an estimate
Use our cost calculator to get an instant indicative costing for your project, based on the numbers of bars, the difficulty of the piece and how many singers the track will be shared with.
Step 2: Receive a quote
Let us know your requirements in more detail: your deadline, your score, known performances as exemplars (You Tube is useful for this).
We can help if you need an unusual or highly personalised version in terms of edition, cuts, key or interpretation. For instance, if you would like an opera aria transposed for example.
If you are happy to take our interpretation, we can offer you an Expedited Catalogue Recording.
Step 3: Commission your custom recording, and tailor your licences
We can consider urgent work but additional charges may be applied if we need to significantly reorganise our schedule to fit it in.
For professional productions, tracks can be supplied in CD quality WAV form at an additional cost to be agreed during the commissioning process.
Redistribution and performance licences can be added at favourable rates when purchasing custom recordings. Please let us know your requirements.
