You remember me posting about being available for remote recording work (paid)? And you notice I haven’t said much about it since?
I have a really interesting remote recording project getting under way at the moment actually, but I’ve also followed up a recommendation from fellow violinist Lucia la Rezza, who is making quite a success of this line of work. It means yet another platform to manage, maintain and try to build a portfolio or at least momentum on, but that seems to be par for the course for any new skill entering the online marketplace at least.
So you can now buy my remote recording services on freelancing platform Fiverr – by the track, with or without me coming up with my own parts or layering multiple overdubs on top of each other, plus bespoke deals can definitely be negotiated for multi-track ‘packages’ or other specific situations.
In addition, I realised Fiverr’s reputational / accreditation systems are almost entirely geared to work successfully carried out within Fiverr, which expects people to take quite a lot of trust in my abilities based on very limited media sample space. So I’ve added a ‘very cheap sample‘ option, allowing people to buy a bespoke 30 seconds to see what I can do rather than paying up something like Fiverr market price for a full track with commercial rights signed over, for the cheapest price you can set on the platform ($5US).
Of course, I’m still very much open to negotiation from scratch through any of my usual contact methods. But this may be a handy package to save or send to any of your recording artist / producer contacts that might just need some string / mandolin overdubs on a project. Go on.
