Submission: "Ingenuity" from my taxi page http://www.taxi.com/B_WilSCIENTIFIC UNDERSCORE INSTUMENTALS are needed by a strong Boutique Music Library that specializes in some very unique Film/TV placements, often outside of the U.S. market! This company has a huge client meeting coming up, and they want to present this music to be used on upcoming science-related TV shows. Give them top-notch Instrumental Tracks that would be suitable for technology-driven shows like How Stuff Works, Through The Wormhole, Futurescape, etc., etc., etc. Please take a listen to the following examples to get a feel for what they need: How Stuff Works clip: http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/other ... ks-videos/ Through the Wormhole clip: http://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-shows/ ... machine-2/ Futurescape clip: http://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-shows/futurescape/ Give them Instrumental Tracks in ALL-Tempos that range from Orchestral Underscore to propulsive, forward moving Electro Tracks (or hybrids of the two styles!) that convey a sense of wonder, curiosity, and scientific discovery. Bust out your “inner nerd” for this pitch! Please avoid submitting Orchestrals that sound like you used cheap or dated sounding samples that are stiff or MIDI-driven. If you’re submitting Electronic-style Tracks, a little science-y “stiffiness” would be expected. You’d be smart to stick with one central melodic motif and create forward movement and interest by adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as the piece progresses. All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Easy edit points and buttoned endings are encouraged. Do not copy or rip off the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine). This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. They’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Publisher’s share. PLEASE do not submit any music that is already signed to ANY other catalogs or libraries for this pitch!!! You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit one to three Instrumentals online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a yes/no basis – no full critiques, and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Thursday, May 21st 2015. TAXI #D150521DI
Just got a review back. I suppose I've got no qualms with the critique, as long as I'm understanding the meaning of "samples".
The reviewer is referring to the instruments/sound patches, correct?
Some of your samples are okay, Bryan, and others not so much. By and large they could do with some freshening. The quality of the production in this instance doesn't quite equal the quality of the composition itself. On the right track though.
