"This thread is called "Fixed Price."
But the price is never fixed. It is always subject to negotiation.
In 1820, the firm of Schlesinger only agreed to pay Beethoven 90 ducats for his three piano sonatas opus 109-111.
He had asked for 120 ducats."

"Then, Chris, you need to take down Kristof's response by rudely asking me by name how much money I make by composing and insinuating that I don't do it for a living on this public forum. Then after you do that, you can delete this response."

"Michael, I agree 110 %. I too would love to know more about the structure of the music market
and the tried and true methods of marketing musical works. Who do you have to know?
Where do you start? Nowadays do you really have to know anyone? How did…"

Oh, so you were in Brazil for a long time. I visited Brazil a couple of times, during the two years I lived in Colombia (and one of my closest friends lives there now, in Sao Paulo). I only saw two Amazonian towns in Brazil: Benjamin Constant…"

"Rodney,
couldn't agree more. That was ever my thought. Living in Brazil gave me some sort of bad experiences when it comes to free gigs. When I was in a band, it was really hard to find some gigs that would pay for us to play. People DO wanted us to…"

"When you do gigs for free you take away income from other composers and sound designers. The only people you would do something for free would be for close friends. My dad owns his own carpet cleaning business. He would clean my carpet for free but…"

It is quite difficult to set up a price for subjective material like music, but yeah, I kind of agree with you when it comes down to saying that a one track minute might be easiest to do than a 30 seconds, for…"

"I am simply amazed about the load of garbage on this forum.

Gustavo, if you are just starting out, $100 per minute of music and once your music sounds as professional as the guys of Cinesamples then you can charge $500 per minute like they do. If…"

Gustavo Coutinho replied to Beethovenius's discussion Rain - atmospheric piano solo
"Wow Beethovenius, this is a really nice track! 
I love how the lightning strikes at 01:55, it was unexpected and it fits quite well! 
Also looks like a good tune for a rainy day, stuck inside. 
Great work!"

  • Welcome Gustavo,
    Your fellow countrymen, Antonio Carlos Jobim, was a big musical inspiration to me.
    In fact, he inspired me to write a song in that genre way back when.
    Looking forward to hearing your music.
    ciao, Dan
