New Deal

Post by mazz » Wed Jun 13, 2007 5:26 am

I've been holding off on announcing this until the deal was in the bag.A music supervison/publishing company in LA has signed me as one of their very few composers. They mostly do songs but apparently they also have a small number of composers do custom work for them and I'm now on the roster.This came about via having 3 pieces forwarded for two different listings. One was the famous circus music dispatch listing. That piece "Two Left Feet Waltz" has been signed to the company along with two other orchestral pieces that were forwarded for a "modern classical sounding" listing, "Ghost Ballet" and "Chance of a Lifetime".They have conncections at a large cable news network and I've been asked to write 8 pieces in different styles for them to pitch directly to the network. I've sent in 2 new pieces in so far.All this writing is why I've been a bit quiet on the forum lately, I got a gig!!!! For all those skeptics out there, TAXI and TAXI Dispatch work if you work them.Mazz

Any music company will be lucky they got you on board. I hope you get so freaking busy you no longer have time to submit to Taxi listings! yes that was a joke You deserve all the success this world has to offer you man!
