I am happy to undertake commissions for a Name in Music piece to honor or memorialize your loved one(s) or as a gift for yourself, using the name as melodic inspiration based on the letter-to-pitches mapping system I created. I will consult with you to craft a piece that evokes the characteristics that are important to you or your loved one -- personality tendencies, aspirational goals, or perhaps hidden qualities.
You will receive a PDF of the musical notation for the piece, and a recording of either live musicians or my computer playing the piece, plus an explanation/story of how the piece evolved and the qualities that emerged.
Prices are very reasonable for a 2 to 4 minute piece based on the name you would like me to use. See https://waterbearmusic.com/the-story#about-name-music and https://waterbearmusic.com/the-story#mapping-system-chart for information about Name in Music.
I ask for $200 to $500 depending on the instrumentation requested for the composition, with additional charges for a recording of real musicians performing the piece. Otherwise you will receive a recording of my digitally sampled sounds performing the piece.
Included: an audio recording, a PDF of the score, a written background/story of the composition, and separate PDFs of the parts if desired.
Please get in touch to discuss: mer at waterbearmusic dot com, or fill out the contact form and I will email back.
