First Contract Offer

Post by RichardInUK » Wed Dec 05, 2018 9:52 am

I didn't expect my first contract to be a cover version for a Ringtone! I almost didn't submit to this but hey - I'm so pleased I did!!

Y180927IC

INSTRUMENTAL COVERS of FAMOUS TV SHOW or MOVIE THEME SONGS from ANY ERA are needed by a successful Music Library for a bunch of cellphone ringtone placements. They’re looking for Instrumentals in All-Tempos that could fall in a pretty wide range of styles. Please submit Instrumental versions of popular Theme Songs that are rhythmically and melodically compelling from start to finish. Your Instrumental can range anywhere from very simple, stripped-down versions, to fuller productions with more instrumentation. Whichever genre or subgenre you’re pitching, be sure it has genre-appropriate instrumentation and production. Stick with the original melody so the songs remain recognizable, even in their cool, new form! NOTE: Even though this request is pretty open, only the best of the best will be sent to the client! Your track needs to jump out of the speakers for this pitch! Uninspired concepts, performances, and productions won’t be good enough for this pitch. Give them something that will make them say, “Wow, that’s cool!” Good is good, but they’ve asked for great, so that’s where we have to set the bar.

I did a version of the theme to 'Mission Impossible' - a full 27seconds of it!!. :)

Thanks Peter

I really don't know if there's much cash in ringtones these days ...
