I'm not sure who to ask this of, so I posted here!
I've been approached by a very respected recording studio in Florida owned by a very old, dear friend. He is producing an album of contemporary Christian music.
He has recorded the rhythm and vocal tracks and has retained me to write the background orchestrations for strings, brass and full orchestra as necessary for 7 of the album cuts.
The task is not a problem...I do these kinds of things almost daily. The issue is what do I charge? What are orchestrations worth? (I've not done this freelance...the ones I do are for the church I work at.)
I may be providing the instrumental tracks as well (using GPO, of course). I would think that would be extra.
Any advice, comments or help would be greatly appreciated.
