Forward for Middle Eastern Rock!

Post by ResonantTone » Fri Apr 05, 2019 10:25 am

Was great to wake up this morning to some kind words from the Taxi screener and a forward for this track. Was a lot of fun to make and really made me think outside the box, which I enjoyed! :)

MIDDLE EASTERN ROCK INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an International Music Library with worldwide distribution through Universal! This company has just started requesting music from TAXI members, so it's very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. This is a killer opportunity to get in a very busy Music Library!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that could generally be right up the alley of (but not limited to) these references that the Music Library provided to us:

“וואלק by Full Trunk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6moAZg ... e=youtu.be

“ברי סחרוף, דודו טסה” by Trib ani utruch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Wm8_bh ... e=youtu.be

“מנסים” by עידן עמדי - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebXpKj5 ... e=youtu.be

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.

Please send in well-composed Rock Instrumentals that have a distinct Middle Eastern style and sound, similar to the references above. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock and Middle Eastern Instruments, as well as chord progressions built around Middle Eastern scales.

TAXI Tip: Please avoid using any Instruments that sound stiff or obviously MIDI-driven.

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Andrew, great work man! It seems like you're already improving quite a bit from when you started. And to be clear - you started quite strongly. I've definitely seen/heard some awesome improvements though, largely in structure and development and such. Really great work of adding/subtracting layers, and as Jay pointed out on SC really great natural edit points. This track is super usable IMHO.

Keep doing the work and I'm SURE you'll be getting a deal and some placements before you know it. Love seeing your progress man.
