Frequently Asked Questions

Table of Contents

Can I use your work in my project ?
How to get ALL of your work ?
Could you structure your Bandcamp albums according to the Patreon folder system?

Sadly it’s not possible on Bandcamp. They don’t allow us to upload anything else than audio files. We can’t upload folders. The only solution we are imagining right now is that once the Patreon hits 5000$, we’ll be able to hire someone to develop a tool in which you can drop all the files and it structures everything according to the most recent version of our database.

Can I resell / repackage your work?

No.

If you do, we hope you have a good lawyer.

How to collaborate with you ?

Send us an email at contact@michaelghelfi.com!

How much is it for a commission ?

We made a page just for that. Feel free to contact us!

How do you make your music / ambiences ?

For Michael: 11 years of self-training, tens of thousands of dollars of sound libraries, high-end computers and edition programs, and a lot of experimentation. Never went to any bard college.

For Filip: He studied and played the piano for 20 years. He’s a self-taught composer and he has been writing music for 10 years now.

Did you compose [x] ambience ?

Check this page. It references all of our compositions.

What is a ‘Paid DM’ (dungeon Master)?

Paid DMs are people who receive a direct financial counterpart for organizing, setting up and leading any kind of Tabletop RolePlaying Games (TTRPGs, such as D&D). They are paid by the players. Generally, these sessions are never recorded.

Dungeon masters who make money streaming sessions on Twitch or on podcasts are not considered paid DMs.

Paid DMs who use our work are required to support us on Patreon. See Conditions of Use – Michael Ghelfi

Can you offer looped tracks ?

Yes, head over our Patreon. “Sage” tier patrons can get looped versions of the Patreon tracks.

Can you compose ambiences or songs for a specific D&D/Pathfinder/etc. campaign or scenario?

We are sorry for the bad news, but it’s actually not legal.

While some of the D&D proper names are OGL (Open Gaming License), most aren’t, especially in the official campaigns. Of course we are a small team and we wouldn’t risk much to name our albums “Icewind Dale …” or “Avernus…”. Indeed, many composers in this industry name their albums or songs based on copyrighted content. but we can’t see ourselves asking others to respect our intellectual property, if we don’t respect others’.

I can’t find what I can download on Patreon

You probably missed the Master Post. It’s where we list ALL the content available on Patreon for each tier.

To make your work easier, each 6 months we make big and well organized folders of the recent content and zip everything together nicely.

Do not forget to download the content of lower tiers as well.

At the bottom, free content for everyone.
