A certain listing question..instumental??

Post by gitanosoy » Fri May 22, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi All,
For this listing as it doesn't mention that it is for a certain film or TV show and it mentions "well crafted" composition...just curious if we can actually let loose and write a composition with melody, solo section without holding back, write as if you were writing for your own ALBUM or still keep it simple with not too many notes flying by in the solo section as per reference tracks in this listing.

THANKS

Several TRADITIONAL SPANISH FLAMENCO GUITAR INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200506SF) but the company wants to hear MORE material! If you submitted to listing #D200506SF, please send in different material this time around.

They’re looking for a bunch of Instrumentals in All Tempos that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these examples:

"Rio Ancho" by Paco De Lucia

"Barrio Negro" by Tomatito

"Tres Puñales" by Enrique Montoya

"Peteneras del Cafe de Chinitas" by Carlos Montoya

Although some of the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate towards music that “sounds like releasable commercial Songs” rather than material that sounds like it came from a "typical music library." Also, this company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit well-composed Flamenco Guitar pieces with great musicianship and an authentic sound and style. Craft your Instrumentals around a central melodic motif and mood that’s cohesive throughout. Your arrangements can range from solo guitar performances to a fuller, traditional Spanish-style band accompaniments with castanets, cajon, and palmas. Please stick to traditional instrumentation, and steer clear of anything that sounds stiff, MIDI-driven, or unnatural.

NOTE: We don’t recommend using virtual guitars for this pitch, unless you are extremely masterful and your virtual instruments sound indistinguishable from the real thing!

Your submissions should be 90 seconds to 2 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Sounds to me like they want to hear your primo material 8-)
