“I offer solid music and sound solutions, whether you need quick fixes or want to build your impact from the ground up. I’m here to help you build your first impression from cinematic soundtracks to consumer product presentations”Robin Rolfhamre, for solidskillsy.
mission & vision.
Making music has never been easier and more accessible. To stand out from the crowd and make your product or film identifiable and enticing, you need some solid skills. I offer high quality online services in sound and music production to facilitate for you and to make your product shine to your target audience where they meet your product. First impressions are important!
I want to help you gain that special impact that conveys the essence of what you wish to offer.
Specialising in filmmusic, online media and product development, I offer three main types of services depending on your budget, need and available production team.
This means that we can find a solution for most budgets, from really large to really small; hours of music and sound or just half a second; finalised sound file to synchronise or a full score and parts to be performed or recorded.
working with me.
I stand for pragmatic, cost-efficient and transparent services. My values are centred on honesty, transparency, reliability and quality. One of my super powers is ASD, which means attention to detail, integrity, high focus and out of the box thinking from a geek with a sincere passion and a solid toolbox.
To give you what you need in the simplest way, my work is mostly based on in-the-box solutions and online communications (e.g. e-mail and video-conferencing). In addition to gaining worldwide reach and costumer contact, it also reduces transport emissions to promote a more eco-friendly industry (which is a win-win). Moreover, when most of our communication is in writing, it is easier to keep track of our collaborative decisions and progress.
includes, but is not limited to:
- Film scoring for features, shorts, documentaries, commercials, Social Media, TV, gaming and more—from the minimalistic, intimate to the epic; live recordings or in the box programmed orchestras with high-end tools. I am also a conductor.
- Audio concept development and branding with an optional audio style guide (aka. audio design template/document)
- Beats, loops, sound kits and mood setters for audio, audiovisual productions and songwriters.
- Industrial presentations (e.g. CAD, 2D/3D visualisations, stand presentations, conference/pitch/presentation introductions)
- I also offer my services within Industrial product design (e.g. system sounds for smart-tech and other sound-enriched consumer products)
Two main solutions
I offer you two main solutions depending on your type of project, time frame and budget:
1. library production music.
Download library production music from various genres and moods to synchronise pre-made material to your production. You can also contact me to license tracks from my published albums. Let me know if I can make you something special.
2. build from the ground up.
Get in touch to get new, exclusive, custom made material to increase the impact of your project. Together we start with blank slates to design a one-of-a-kind audio for your project. This could include sound design/foley, music, jingles, sound logos, or everything at once in one neat package!
