percussion epic-ness!

Post by petercole » Fri Jul 14, 2017 9:51 am

My 2 percussion build ups were forwarded. The first one is actually a 30 second version of the second one (60 second); so maybe this only counts as 1.5 forwards, not 2 :)

Had a lot of fun with these. Pure, percussion epic-ness!

PERCUSSION-Based “BUILD-UP” Cues are needed by a high-quality Production Music Library that pays an upfront fee each time they include one of your tracks in their catalog. They’re on the hunt for a variety of short Build Ups that could support tense, exciting, and anticipatory scenes (see note below). Please listen to the following examples to get an idea of the wide variety of styles that can work for this pitch. Note that the Build Ups might have other instrumentation already layered on top. Your focus should be on the drums and percussion in particular. “Transformers: The Last Knight (2:17 – 2:31) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vtf0MszgP8&t=101s “War of the Planet of The Apes” (1:55 – 2:23) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilhnNa-DrIk “Kong: Skull Island” (1:45 – 2:15) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44LdLqgOpjo Quoting the client: “Start with small drums or a smaller ensemble of drums and build it in size and intensity as it works its way towards a crescendo. These Build Ups should be mainly percussive, but I am not opposed to some layers of strings or effects that are added for texture, as long as we can also get percussion only versions as well.” Note: It’s pretty common for Build Ups to be drums or percussion only, and then have additional layers of instrumentation added by another composer at a later date. A good approach when composing Build Ups is to imagine the other instruments in there, but to NOT add them! That gives the downstream composers the ability to tailor their melodies, etc. to the specific Trailer they’re working on, using your Percussive Build Ups as the basis. Please submit “heart attack-inducing” drum or percussion-based Build Ups that start small-ish and grow in size, energy, and intensity as they crescendo to a powerful climax. Your Cues can be anywhere from a quick sting (10 to 20 seconds) or a longer, more gradual build up that can last as long as a full minute, give or take. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). This company offers a buyout deal. You’ll get paid an upfront fee for any tracks they sign. This company gets 100% EXCLUSIVE ownership of the copyright and master. You’ll keep the writer’s share, and get performance royalties directly from your PRO. Because this is an Exclusive deal, please do not submit any material for this pitch that is signed to any other library or publisher! Please submit one to three Instrumental Cues online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a yes/no basis. No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), Friday, June 30th, 2017. TAXI #D170630PB
