Year One Report

Post by markismusic » Thu May 23, 2019 12:07 pm

Hello!
I'm about a month late to write this post but I figured better late than never.
It feels like a never ending journey but trying to put more time into producing music and less into netflix.
I'm realizing how important a balanced lifestyle is when it comes to writing music (eating right, regular exercise, proper sleep, etc.) which is something the pros have always talked about.
I find myself making better music when I'm not over extended, tired or stressed about something else in my life.
Stay hungry. Stay focused!

My year one stats...

Submissions - 67
Forwards - 17
Publishing deals through Taxi (so far) - 1
Publishing deals not through Taxi - 2
Placements - 1 (that I know of)
Instrumental cues produced - 108ish
Instrumental cues signed to libraries - 52

Not too bad for my first year (i think) but still learning everyday.
Very much looking forward to my first time in LA for my first Road Rally this year.
Hoping to meet some familiar faces. Have a great weekend everyone!

Mark,

This is super encouraging to hear! Balance is something I’m currently right in the middle of figuring out with music, taxi, and everything else I have goin on.

Glad to hear you’ve had such a great year, and I hope this coming one brings more and more placements for ya!

I’m also planning on being at my first road rally this November. Hope to see ya there!

Best of luck!!

Andrew

52 cues signed your first year, not too shabby Mark!

Thanks for sharing your stats, good productivity and the rewards are following, well done!

Jay :)

P.S. If I stay hungry it makes me cranky and my tracks suffer. So in my case I'll stay sated but keep writing! :D
see you at the top!
