Hopeful Piano forward
Posted: Tue Jan 08, 2019 6:29 am
I got a forward for this piano piece. This is my first forward with orchestral strings. I've been nervous about strings, because I don't know much about them. The first thing I've learned is that less is more. The more it sounds like an orchestra, the more fake midi it sounds to me. But just one or two cellos or violins can sound pretty real, and pack a lot of emotion.

HOPEFUL, PIANO-Based INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed no later than THURSDAY by an A-List Music Publisher/Music Licensing Company with a long history of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials. They’re on the hunt for Mid-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic range of the references they provided to us below:
The Dream Gap
Please submit well-composed Piano-based Instrumental Cues that convey a hopeful and optimistic vibe, feel, and mood. Your Cues should have an arpeggiated style, with light Orchestral Instrumentation layered as it progresses to build to a nice developmental arc. Instrumentation for this pitch could include Strings, Bells, Cello, and Drums. You’d be smart to avoid submitting anything that’s overly busy for this pitch, as it could distract from a TV Commercial's dialogue.
TAXI Tip: Think of the type of music that could work well for many kinds of happy, lighthearted, storytelling-type moods in commercials.
All Instrumentals must be 1:00 in length with Non-Faded, Buttoned/ Stinger endings. We think you'd be even smarter to make sure your Cues end at 59.5 seconds, including instrument ring outs and reverb tails! Please do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for instrumentation, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.
This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50. You’ll get 100% of the Master rights and Writer’s share, and the Catalog will get 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Publisher – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, January 3rd, 2019. TAXI #Y190103PN
