I hired Leonid about two months ago. He wrote beautiful chords and background instrumentation for me. This was an extension of that project, because I wanted him to incorporate melody. Leo did not disappoint. This guy is a master and a perfectionist. He will not give you a product that has not been delivered with 100% effort. If I ever come up with another tune that I want chords and instrumentation, Leonid will be my go-to. He is just wonderful!
This is a re-hire for Leonid, whom has completed work for another brand of mine in the past. He has great attention to detail to ensure the music produced matches the clients needs, good communication. I will rehire should a suitable project arise.
Working with Leonid has been a very pleasant experience. He immediately came up with several inspiring tunes and any ideas or comments are easily incorporated into the work. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
I looked for a sound designer who understood the texture of the sounds I needed for a long time. While his initial demo sold me instantly, his first submission didn't feel quite right. Leonid was able to explain to me that what I was asking my sound designers for wouldn't produce the effect I wanted. Even though I struggled to explain, he was able to deliver what I needed by producing half a dozen sounds at a time and asking me for my favorite so we could refine over each iteration.
