My first forward :)

Post by dmitriy » Wed Jul 24, 2019 3:36 am

Hello to all! I recently in a taxi (one month), I received a forward 15 days ago and yesterday I signed a contract with the library. Thank you Taxi !!!!

Y190702HD
MINIMALISTIC ORIGINAL HOLIDAY INSTRUMENTALS in All Styles are needed by a successful International Music Licensing Company with worldwide distribution through BMG!

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI #Y190519HD) but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to re-run this request to see if we could find them even more. If you submitted to TAXI #Y190519HD, please submit different material this time around!

They’re looking for ORIGINAL (no covers, please) Mid-to-Up Tempo Holiday Instrumentals that would fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following examples:

O come, O come, Emmanuel (Piano/Cello) - The Piano Guys

Silent Night (instrumental) - Piano and Violin Duet

Quoting the Music Library: “We are looking for tracks that are minimalistic, sparse, and somehow simple. That does NOT mean boring, repetitive, or without evolvement. Please avoid sending solo pieces."

Minimalist like Steve Reich, Philip Glass, etc.? NO!
Minimalist for TV, film, and advertising? YOU BET.

All submissions should be around Two Minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019. TAXI #Y190702HD


Who is interested, happy to share
