Mediterranean Piano solo forward

Post by ComposerLDG » Mon Mar 25, 2019 2:38 pm

Got one through! I wrote this song a few years ago and recently cleaned it up a bit and submitted.



ORIGINAL MEDITERRANEAN SOLO PIANO or PIANO-Based INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Leading 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!

Quoting the Music Library: “We do NOT want any Western or American style pieces. Instrumentals should have a sound that represents a Mediterranean styling.”

They’re looking for Instrumentals in a variety of Styles, Tempos, and Moods that could generally be right up the alley of (but not limited to) these references that the Music Library provided to us:

"Valse” by Evgeny Grinko:

“Elegy For The Arctic” by Ludovico Einaudi:

“ANTSCHO” by Adanayi Voghperge:

“Ölsəm Bağışla” by Emin Sabitoğlu:

NOTE: They would also love to hear Piano-based Instrumentals with a Bass and Lead instruments like (but not limited to) the Flute, Ney Duduk, Clarinet, Accordion, and/or Violin.

Please submit well-crafted Piano or Piano-based Instrumentals that can instantly help set a Mediterranean location and mood. Your submission should have compelling melodies and solid musicianship without getting too busy or overly complicated. You’d be wise to keep them simple enough that they don’t get in the way of dialog. Be sure any virtual instrumentation you use sounds indistinguishable from the real thing. Anything that sounds stiff, unnatural, or obviously quantized and MIDI-driven will not work for this request.

Thanks, Anthony! That's NI's The Giant. Love that piano. Like you, I also had 2 returns on this listing, for pretty much the same reason. Screener wrote that there was too much bass swallowing up the mid-range, and some bass distortion. I will admit that the pianos were very bass heavy, but I'm not hearing distortion. Anyway, The Giant does sound pretty heavily effected, so be prepared to do some tweaking!
