Sleeping Forest


Music producer | mixing engineer | VGM Composer/Remixer | Cover artist

Hello, I’m Sleeping Forest! I specialize in writing original, cover, and video game music in most modern, electronic, and rock/metal genres. I can also accommodate almost any style or genre and would love to work with you on your next project.

Commission Status: ASK

MIXING & AUDIO EDITING

VOCAL MIXING | $50-100/song

Many of my clients only need vocals mixed to an existing instrumental (that you will provide), so this option is for them. The price includes any song length under 5 minutes. Songs over 5 minutes as well as songs with large groups of vocal tracks are liable to price adjustments depending on the content.

Standard Mixing | $150-250/song

This is the standard option for mixing where I have control over all instruments and vocals via the stem tracks. The price includes any song length under 5 minutes. Songs over 5 minutes are liable to price increases and songs with minimal instrumentation (such as piano accompaniment) or vocals, to a price reduction on a case-by-case basis.

audio timing & pitch correction

I no longer offer this as a commissioned service. If you need your vocal audio time or pitch corrected, you will need to find someone else to do this for you if you can’t on your own. I can also recommend various people that you can commission for this type of work, if needed. Minimal adjustments or fixes that need to be made during mixing are free of charge.


song writing

Please contact me about your project and we'll find a price that works for the both of us.

Standard Cover or Original Song | Price will vary, $200-500 est.

For a full song in any style you want (with some limitations). This also includes mixing, both vocal and instrumental. Like with mixing, any track-heavy songs or songs over 5 minutes, may have an additional cost. Likewise, minimal instrumentation could also be subject to a price reduction.

TV-Size Covers | Price will vary, $150-250 est.

Specifically for my cover artist clients. Many are only looking for TV length covers (about 1 min 30 sec) for either anime songs or TV shows, so this option is for them. Also includes mixing for both instrumental and vocals.

Game or Trailer Music | Price will vary

I am also more than happy to help write original music for your game or other artistic medium. Please contact me so we can discuss the details about what you need and pricing.

Terms

royalties & deposits

I now require a 10% minimum of mechanical publishing royalties (i.e. streaming sales) on all of my original or cover songs in addition to our agreed price. However, you have the option of buying out my share of sales for an agreed upon price between us. It is also possible to reduce the upfront cost by trading me a higher sales percentage. By default, I will still own a share of master recording and publishing rights and royalties, unless a license for complete ownership from me is purchased. You do not need a license from me to monetize my work on YouTube for a project that you paid for. For any other platforms unspecified, please ask.

A deposit of 50% of the total cost is required before I start on your commission. This is for my own protection and is non-negotiable in most cases. Your deposit amount will depend on the estimated cost.

budget & multiple projects

I understand the struggles of independent musicians and I would be more than happy to work around your budget if necessary. This includes discounts on multiple songs or bigger projects. I am also willing to work with seperate payments. I can also help you plan, produce, and write an original or cover album, as well as any musical projects.

EXPECTED DELIVERY, REVISIONS, & REFUNDS

  • I will need a minimum of a 14 day window to complete your project, no matter the size. In many cases I will have it done sooner, but this is to protect my scheduling. I will give you a concise estimate of how long your commission will take before I start. If you need a project expedited by a certain date, please let me know so we can discuss it.

  • You may have no more than 3 edits/revisions of any size (within reason), but also need to allow more time for any potential edits.

  • Refunds will only be given on a case-by-case basis at my discretion. I’m not unreasonable, but I have to carefully protect my time invested into projects.

Projects & Portfolio
