Any thoughts ?
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, including, but definitely not limited to the examples referenced below:
M*A*S*H theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIGYLBVjYZA
The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air Theme Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nCqRmx3Dnw
“The Godfather Waltz” from The Godfather: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPskYVBqdNw
“James Bond Theme” from James Bond: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye8KvYKn9-0
The Simpsons Theme Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xqog63KOANc
Family Matters Opening Theme Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYvNiKwWvhk
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.
They’re also open to new innovative renditions as well. Take a Motown-esque Soul approach, or do a Country Version! Take a Pop approach, or maybe try a Jazz or Hip-Hop version. Get creative, but 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.
All submissions must be 27 seconds long (or less), with Non-Faded endings. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this request please DO NOT submit full length songs. Your submission should be ringtone ready and able to be plugged in without any further editing needed.
This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please make sure the Songs you submit aren’t already signed to any another libraries or catalogs. All income from the ringtones will be split 50/50 between you and the Music Library. You must own or control your Master to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like 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), on Thursday, September 27th, 2018. TAXI #Y180927IC
