Letter from Alastair Jamieson-lane - use of MIDI files for project

Hey Bjorn

I am amateur Java program just fooling around with a little Platform game. I'd really like to use a couple of your midi tunes for background music, but am not sure if the game would be considered "at home listening" or "any kind of project" and am not sure if I'd have to buy a liscense. Thought I'd ask your permission and see what you say about it. Great music man, keep it up!

Hi Alastair,

Thanks for your email. So long as the game is just for fooling around between yourself and your friends/family, you may use my MIDI’s for free.

If the game is going to be distributed in any way, i.e. available for download (even free download), then you need a license to use my MIDI’s. (License costs $29.95 per track and can be purchased from

I hope this helps.

- Bjorn
