Is this royalty free?
Do you offer Buyout licenses?

The rights included
The standard license includes both publishing and master rights, giving the client upon payment the non-exclusive right to use the music, use of the master recordings, to do edits, to synchronize music to film or other visual media and also the duplication right to make copies of your work, on dvds for example. If not stated differently, all licenses are per project based.
Non-profit/student/personal use for free?
No free licenses. Personal/student use is not supported due to lack of time. Please don't send me requests unless it's for profit use. See more info on license rates and non-approved content.
Eventual additional Public Performance Rights
The license doesn’t include rights to public performances, for instance a broadcast or a theatrical release. This is handled by each country’s PRO (performance rights organization), i.e. BMI, ASCAP, PRS, STIM, SOCAN, GEMA, etc. This usually doesn’t affect you as a film maker/producer since most broadcasters have blanket deals or similar with their PRO. In some cases on certain projects this is negotiable between composer-client, contact me for more info.
Cue Sheet & PRO info
For eventual broadcast and theatrical releases, please provide the airing station/producer with the following PRO details:
Composer: Niklas Aman (100% STIM)
Publisher: Brusbox Music (100% STIM)
This will work in every country no matter PRO (ie ASCAP, BMI, SOCAN, PRS, GEMA, STIM, etc).
Do you make bespoke/custom music?
Yes occasionally. Times are quite busy nowadays, but if the project is interesting I'm all ears. Email >>
