I really liked the Resolutions episode on January 6 but I have a question. Resolution #3 was to watch 3 episodes of 3 shows for a week. Catfish, Keeping Up With The Kardashians & The Challenge. This has been a really great learning experience for me.
Here's my question:
What do the Taxi listings look like that are looking for music for these types of shows? Are they listed as Instrumentals? Cues? Can anyone share a Taxi listing (past or current) that would be looking for music for this type of use?
Thanks for any input you all have.
A lot of Dramedy-Instrumentals are used in reality TV shows. This is a current listing which I believe is a good example:-
URBAN TENSION INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Industry Veteran that’s building a new Music Licensing catalog.
They’re looking for Mid-To-Up Tempo Instrumental Cues in the stylistic ballpark of the following examples below:
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood (From 1:28 – 2:05)
Basketball Wives (From 0:51 – 1:25)
NOTE: This is for an entertainment Industry Veteran who has several shows currently in production, and he needs a lot of music! If you’ve got this type of Cue, don’t be shy about submitting a bunch of them for this request!
Give them well-crafted Tension Cues with current-sounding Hip-Hop beats that could support tension-filled scenes in Reality TV shows. Build your Cues around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as they progress to add dynamics, interest, and forward movement. Please avoid anything that sounds too busy, as it could potentially interfere with dialogue.
Your submissions should be at least 90 seconds in length, and a little bit longer is fine. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Broadcast Quality is needed.
This Industry Veteran get syncs ranging up to $250 per Instrumental Cue, depending on the placement and show.
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 Library 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’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener hand-picked by the Music Library Owner. All Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, January 19th, 2020.
