In releasing this statement, I’m exercising my right to defend myself. It is a defence, not an unprovoked attack, issued with extreme reluctance only after all other attempts to resolve the matter have failed.

DOOM Eternal’s contracted budget was 142 minutes.
Video game music contracts: In-game scores are budgeted in minutes.
I am not paid for any rejected music;
it is discarded and not to be used.
An Official Soundtrack (the “OST”) is a separate product.
The work is highly involved and falls under a separate contract.
