I'm Antanas (or Anthony) "HeavenWraith" Palaitis, an amateur composer, music producer, mixer, guitarist, violinist, keyboardist, orchestrator, sound and synthesis engineer. I'm a composer for a non-commercial movie me and my friends are making, a yet unposted remixer of OverClocked Remix community and currently searching for a job involving game/movie/animation music.
I started composing music almost right after I'd become acquainted with it. That was 1999, give or take one year, the time I've started taking violin classes. Alongside the violin course, I have taken piano, composition, improvisation, music history, thoery and harmony courses, additionally participating in activities of a symphonical orchestra. With a package of classical music knowledge and inspiration from modern artists and bands, I've started producing digital music in 2011.
Additional internet community occupations involve being a player, level designer, former server administrator and former staff member of Zandronum, online DooM community.
I have experience in scoring/producing soundtracks for movies or games and producing arrangements of other people's music. I also have some experience in working with vocals and the popular music. My certificates are listed in the About Me section.
My specialization is music for media like games and videos, however I'm also capable of producing arrangements and mixes of the popular music. The only field I have absolutely no confidence in is lyric writing, hence unfortunately I cannot help anyone with that.
Since I have some history with BGM rearranging and remixing, I'm willing to take up remix requests I'm interested in. Free of charge, of course. I'm also capable of mixing and mastering tracks for various artists who don't have a professional sound engineer at their disposal. Rates below apply.
Usually composers base their rates on the amount of hours they spend working on the track, however that's a rather vague measure for the client to comprehend. Hence I tried basing my rates on the length of the tracks in question. All prices are in dollars per minute of track length. The price ranges are wide because some works will be more demanding than others, but I hope you can roughly gather what to expect.
|Mixing||Joining up separate recordings and fully producing a song. Includes noise reduction, careful stereo placement, clarity ensurance, maximization and mastering.||$10-$20|
|Mastering||Making an existing song maximized, pleasing to the ear and smooth.||$5-$20|
|Producing||Recording, mixing and mastering a pre-composed song. Includes providing advice and arrangement ideas.||$15-$30|
|Composing and producing||Recording, mixing and mastering original and specialized material. Making a full song from the beginning to the end.||$20-$40|
I'm also open to various revenue split scenarios. Additionally, to ensure the smoothness of the deal, I ask my clients to sign a custom form letter of agreement.
