Licensing


All of my existing catalogue is available for non-exclusive licensing only.
Licensing always starts by  contacting me directly with the details,

What's  included


What are you paying for?

You are paying for a license that allows you to synchronize your audio-visual image to my audio track only and specifically for the purpose specified by the type of license.

Do you need a license even if you bought the music on iTunes or Bandcamp?

Yes. You will always need to purchase an appropriate license if you wish to synchronize your audio-visual image to my music.

Do you need a license for every separate new project?

Yes. Each license purchased for a track is specific to the project you bought it for, in the way specified by the license type.


Do you own the music when you license it?

No. You do not own the music you license with us. You purchase a license that allows you to synchronize our music to your audio-visual image in the way specified by the type of license you buy. I own all of the copyrights as well as the sound recording of every track that's available for licensing.

How do you get the music?

Once you've decided the track(s) you want to license, send us an email with your details as well as the license type you wish to buy and we will send you the files along with your invoice and instructions for payment.

What if the music I license gets flagged on Youtube?

Click the dispute button and enter your invoice and license number in the field. Once we receive this info we can resolve the claim and you can use the music as stated in your license.
