THE DAUGHTER OF THE EARTH
Hello, my name is TOFIE (toh - fee)I am a composer, songwriter, and vocalist, weaving stories through sound since 2016.Most days I just want to sit in a meadow and daydream.My wish is to bring the world joy through story and sound. ✦【member of Frame of Reference】
Here is a sampling of my work!

✦The Daughter of the Earth, born from a seedling:
TOFIE (formerly known as TOFUKU) has nurtured the art form of immersion and storytelling through sound and her alter-ego, with a passion for building audio realms from the ground up, pulling pieces from the largest synthesized sounds all the way down to the tiniest whispers of the forest.
TOFIE first broke out onto the scene in 2016 with her debut single, “Sunrise Cutie.” In 2017, her future bass-styled single “2D Dreaming” went on to become viral on the social media app TikTok. In 2020, she produced an official remix for the psychological horror role-playing game OMORI, developed by OMOCAT.Having gone through a metamorphosis and personal discovery over the years, In 2021 she released “Daughter of the Earth,” her gapless playback debut EP that set the stage for her new era. Currently, she also regularly composes for virtual streamers (“VTubers”) and other various content creators.Beyond composing, TOFIE is also known for her signature vocal style in features with globally recognized artists such as Mark Redito, KOTONOHOUSE, Voia, Video Game Remixes (VGR), Blood Code, and more. In 2019, she did vocal work on “KINGDOM HEARTBEATS,” an officially licensed Kingdom Hearts remix LP by RoboRob, which went on to chart at #14 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic album sales.
The wind gently sings, the forest sways with rhythm, wildflowers reach for the sky as you hear the shimmer of fresh spring rain.There’s music and perfect harmony everywhere around us… will you take a moment to hear it?
TERMS OF SERVICE
By commissioning me, you agree to read and abide by the terms on this page.
Please note that the terms are subject to change.
Last updated 12.04.21
✦ I reserve the right to refuse a project that I feel I cannot complete sufficiently, due to the nature of the work requested, or for any other reason(s) unspecified. I will be completely honest with you if I feel I cannot create what you’re looking for.✦ I require full payment upfront via PayPal (invoice) before beginning work on the project.
50% upfront payment is also available on a case-by-case basis, but generally only approved for larger projects. By paying partially, you agree to paying the full amount upon completion.✦ Once work has started, payment is non-refundable. If you are in a waitlist or queue and payment has not been exchanged, you are free to forfeit your slot at any point before work begins.✦ For reference, my average turnaround is anywhere between 7 - 60 days from starting, and varies depending on many factors. I am less likely to accept your project if you have a deadline, so please keep this in mind. I take great time and care with my work and am sure to deliver reasonable updates, so patience from the client is greatly appreciated.✦ Promptness of communication within reason between both parties is both expected and appreciated as a sign of mutual respect, so please keep me informed if any emergencies pop up! I promise to do the same.✦ When using the work in any content, you must provide credit back to either my Twitter or website somewhere reasonably visible. It truly helps artists more than you may know! (example: BGM by TOFIE)✦ Commissions are digital files only, no physical goods will be received. The files will be provided to you via email, Discord, or Twitter, depending on previous methods of communication.✦ I add a soft “sigh” sample to my works as my artist signature, but I always try to keep it subtle. Please make sure you’re okay with this first!
During the Process (Revisions Policy, etc.)
(For reference, there are three general stages: Demo, Second PV, and Mix/Master)
✦ For music, a maximum amount of one major revision and two minor revisions are included in the price, any further desired revisions will be at a rate of $30.00 USD each.✦ Due to their nature, only one minor revision will be accepted for MINIMA BGM commissions. An example of a minor revision is requesting a melody/instrument adjustment.✦ Only one revision can be made to each individual stream alert, any further desired revisions will be at a rate of $10.00 USD each.✦ I do not do any major revisions after the Demo/Sketch stage is approved, as it can be very difficult to change the structure of a song - please make sure that you're happy with the general direction during this first stage. Small adjustments during the Second PV stage are OK.✦ If for any reason I’ve started but cannot complete the work within the agreed upon timeframe and additional time cannot be granted, the full deposit will be refunded to you using the same method of payment within 10-14 days.✦ If for any reason you’re unhappy with the finished work, please talk to me and we can discuss it further. Writing music takes many, many hours of work, but I also want for you to have something you’re happy with. Please make sure that you are happy with my musical style and skill level before choosing to work with me.
Allowed Usage/Copyright Information:
✦ Please DO NOT download or use any work-in-progress or audio previews from me before your work is finished! These are very raw and generally will be noticeably different from the finished master.✦ You are granted a sync license to use the completed work in your streams and content without copyright claims, however I retain full rights and ownership, including the right to upload the finished work to my own sites/portfolio (Twitter, SoundCloud, etc.), commercially or non-commercially, for the purpose of showcasing my work.
If you’d prefer for me not to use your name/likeness in my portfolio, please let me know before completion.✦ For VTubers, all portfolio showcases will remain anonymous until you have either a.) "debuted" or b.) publicly used the work in your content.✦ If you want to distribute the work to music services (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) please contact me and we can discuss options.
✦ Uploading the work for the sole purpose of commercial monetization is not allowed (audio-only distribution to stores, audio-only monetized uploads, etc.), it must be used alongside your own content if monetized (sync).
(Example: a YouTube video of you streaming a game with the work playing in the background + monetization enabled is acceptable, a showcase of the work by itself with monetization enabled is not) if you're unsure about usage, please feel free to ask me and I'll be happy to help.✦ No one else has permission to use your commissioned work, commercially or non-commercially, unless it is in content pertaining to or involving you and/or your brand and they have your direct permission (OK example: interviews).
However, even with your permission, commercial use by a third-party is prohibited before contacting me first.✦ You may not use the work without credit to me, claim the work as your own or someone else's, re-distribute or re-sell it, or auction/“mint” it in any way as a non-fungible token (cryptocurrency) in any blockchain-related technology.✦ If a fraudulent chargeback is filed, you will lose any and all rights to the commissioned work, and it will be re-sold/re-purposed. You will be forbidden from commissioning me again, and your name/handles will be shared publicly to protect others.
