CUSTOM buyout music?
There's this program called Reason, heard of it? I had it for a while, it's a great little sequencer. It costs less than Photoshop and comes with tons of ready-to-use loops. I hear those loops on more than a couple major reality tv shows. That's like putting a new picture frame on the desk in your office displaying the photos that came with it! Clearly integrity isn't as important to the producers as the additional profit made by cutting out writers, actors, and composers. You and I may not have their budget, but we can keep our integrity.
You need music. It has to be great, it has to be cheap, and it has to be NOW. Relax -- Whether you need an original TV cue, a complete orchestral score for game development, an electronica music bed for radio advertising, a song to license for film, or a groovy loop for your PowerPoint presentation or web site -- I'll take care of you. I assure 100% all-in (both sides) for every situation. A true one-stop one-stop.
The appeal of most buyout music is speed and affordability. But directors, producers, game developers and corporate presenters would all prefer original music. What if they could have it all? YOU can...with custom buyout music.BACK TO TOP
Quality & Originality
Primarily, I'm a true boutique music production service. My library's not as big as some of the mega production music houses, but my composer rates can rival their needledrop licensing. I don't offer a completely automated transaction, but I'll beat anybody's delivery time on that 39-second fade-out mix.
I encourage you to add impact and prestige to your project with original music.
No job is too small or too big: I've written, recorded and delivered a 5-second stinger in less than an hour and composed a full-length original score presented in an experimental 10.2 surround format. Virtually any music style: orchestral, electronica, acoustic jazz...all original AND royalty-free.BACK TO TOP
Fast Production & Licensing
I'll complete and deliver your music on CD, upload any file format you need straight to your FTP folder (or set it up for downloading on my server with your own personal password-protected directory), even place them directly into your web page -- before your deadline. I'm quicker because I understand programming (how do you like this web site I designed, built, and maintain entirely myself? Hey, a guy's gotta have a hobby) and cross-platform issues, and I do everything in-house.BACK TO TOP
You won't find a composer or music service more cooperative with your budget. Combined with the cost-cutting power of my fast turnaround, I take a lot of pride in my work and in my desire to earn an honest living. I think that pride shows in my work - take a listen!
Remember, the buzz-word "royalty-free" doesn't apply to everyone: If you're doing a non-profit or in-company project, for example, your presentation doesn't have to pay royalties to Performing Rights Organizations like ASCAP and BMI. Even if your production is intended for liable public performance, if you can fill out a cue sheet, you're clear with me! And it couldn't be more straight-forward with my affiliated PRO - SESAC, an invitation-only PRO I'm very proud to be associated with.
Just because you don't have a big budget doesn't mean you can't have a quality product. I have extra-flexible rates for independent productions, because I am one!BACK TO TOP
Standard Licensing Terms and Fees
Perpetual, single-use, non-exclusive, non-transferable, credited synch/transcription and master license. I retain all ownership (100% writer and publisher), administration and income. Licenses do not include performance rights and the licensee is responsible for submitting cue sheets to SESAC (at no extra cost) prior to the first public performance when applicable.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need different terms!
Generally, an original work will cost about $350 per 30 seconds (depending on instrumentation, third-party mastering options, and other factors) and all of the above terms will apply. You may use the work forever (perpetually) in one project (single-use). You may not license the work to others (non-transferrable) but it will be available in my library for possible future use in other projects (non-exclusive). You may incude the the original recording (master) in a television program, advertisement, film, et cetera, provided any credits of cast and crew include "Original Music by Kyle Bronsdon", "Kyle Bronsdon: Composer", or similar (credited synch/transcription). To be in compliance with these terms, you must submit a cue sheet to SESAC before any portion of the work is made public.
Fees can be as much as four times this rate for a Work-For-Hire, in which you will have complete ownership as if you wrote the music yourself and can use it in any way you like, including licensing it to others.BACK TO TOP

Kyle's rebirth as a solo piano player takes its title from Kyle's studio, "The Shed", named after jazz parlance for practice. Another level of meaning comes from the artist shedding his past as a drummer and retraining himself as a pianist. Also, the studio is, um...a shed. 11 tracks, including 7 new original songs and covers by Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, and Paul Williams!

A Model Psychosis (2006)
Albert Hofmann, LSD & the Drug War - A jazz song cycle. Bob Dorough & Randy Newman cruising in the Great Red Shark on a "Fear & Loathing" roadtrip. A concept album inspired by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann, best known for his discovery of LSD. Hofmann personally encouraged jazz songwriter Kyle Bronsdon to deal with the stigma and "prevailing misunderstanding in the general public regarding these kinds of 'drugs.'" Bronsdon honors the chemist's life and work and explores the dark history of the drug war.

All About The Burn (2004)
Misplaced credentials inspired Bronsdon to become reordained as a minister of the Universal Life Church on the heels of releasing All About the Burn. The CD features the songs "Church of the Spark" and "What's Not to Like" (based on a zen parable), along with several love songs. Bronsdon finds no inconsistency: "Joseph Campbell once said that love is the burning point of life," he says, "and many eastern religions hold sex to be a sacred act akin to worship and meditation. Even the Judeo-Christian tradition contains vast, often hidden reservoirs of honor and piety to the alternatively nurturing and wrathful female principal." Featuring Namoli Brennet and Steve Grams.

Kitchen Swing (2003)
Bronsdon's solo debut features old bandmates Brenden Kearney and Steve Grams (the "KGB Trio", Kings of Pleasure) as well as seasoned swingers like Harvey Newmark (Anita O'Day, Harry "Sweets" Edison) and newer talent including Carl Sonny Leyland (Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys). Mike Cogan (Lavay Smith, Indigo Swing) mastered the album. The album covers a lot of ground stylistically, from ragtime to jump blues to avante garde jazz. Bronsdon makes subtle departures from tradition, yet his intention to create an accessible jazz record seems to have been realized. Much of the CD shares an intimate sound -- it gets its name from the four selections that the drummer recorded in his kitchen. "I like playing music you can take a bite out of," says Bronsdon, "written music is just like a cookbook. Some people can follow the recipe and some people can't, and even if you put in all the right ingredients in the right order it doesn't guarantee it'll be delicious. More importantly," he adds, "like Zappa said, 'unless you're really weird you don't eat the recipe.'"
