Hey Big Dave, ;-). Thx for all the Stars..Much appreciated! Happy New Year. Come on 2022!
Yes bring it on! Bet you are as crazy as me composing over Christmas lol. Happy New Year to you!
LOL - I'm always writing! I can't not write! ;-) I imagine you have the same affliction! I always have a minimum of 3 to 6 songs in the pipe line. LOL That song is on Hold with to Supervisors and I signed signed a non exclusive with a company that places sync opportunities for Feature Films - T.V. and Ad campaigns. Fingers crossed. ;-)
For years now I've targeted non-exclusive libraries as it makes sense to have the same track in 3 or 4 libraries giving it more of a chance to get picked up! But just recently I was approached by a guy that is convinced he can get my more dramatic pieces into films/commercials trailers etc. but I have to sign over the tracks exclusively so I am (reluctantly) writing new material for him. I have to admit there are very few non-exclusive libraries that get film/trailer & commercial placements! You are lucky getting the opportunity for advert placements with a non-exclusive agreement so well done finding that! You work incredibly hard so I wish you well. Keep me posted!
well the other side of the coin says exclusive can pay better and can get placed more easily because they know, no one else is gonna have access to that song! ;-) I'm not against if I know the song is gonna really be worked and pay well. We just gotta keep swinging! ;-) .
Mr Rabbit! How are you! Can you believe it has been a year since you last wished me a happy new year! and I said "bring it on" well what a year! I have since written over 60 tracks for that exclusive company I was telling you about and they say some of my stuff has been used in a few films/TV Amazon etc...no money coming in yet (story of my life lol) and a wonderful thing happened...I got an email from the guys that did the trailer music to Star Wars/The Matrix and Terminator asking if I would do an album for them! That is now done and dusted (TALOS) and I await placements from it. So what a great year it has been....And there's more! I did a pop track with female vocals called "Never Leave You Alone" (which I did some time ago) placed on an album, the guys that released the album (of various artists) said 11 companies from around the world got in touch wanting to release my track as a single so they are releasing it themselves on the 6th of Jan 2023 (Never Leave You Alone by Kamouflage). I must say I have very little faith in the charts these days, I don't believe there is any money in it anymore but if the track is successful then it might generate interest and get used in a commercial (one of the few areas left where you can actually earn some money). As for Broadjam I've noticed that the same old companies constantly relist there music requests and I believe there is only 2 or 3 companies worth submitting to now! I was very disappointed in one company (Tinderbox) requesting all types of background music so I sent them 20 tracks....only I got them all back a month later (I take it they weren't listened to!) At least I believe you only get them back when they don't listen to it after a month or so. So there are now a few listings I avoid on this site! Not sure if I am going to renew when my subscription expires in a few months! Anyway hope you had an equally interesting and successful year (as I know you work as hard if not harder than me). Happy New Year and a successful 2023 to you Mr Rabbit!
David, I'm listening to Booty Funk, ... digging it! I love those harmonica swell sounds, and the guitar parts, really cool!
Thanks Jim, you are always generous with positive feedback which always gives me a little boost! To be honest it's full of old samples I've got laying around my computer and a bit of a rush job too (bass could be funkier). I kept thinking it was a bit too repetitive but I also can see this sort of track in the background of one of those late night roulette gambling shows when they are idly chatting while they wait for punters to place bets (ha)
Thanks for the 5 stars for "A Day at the Country Estate". You have so much great music on your page I could spend all day there. I left a couple 5 stars myself.
Much appreciated Richard, nice to meet another real professional out there! Which of course your stuff is!
I love all of the atmospheric sounds and transitions in this one. Really cool! Digging it.
Thanks Jim for positive comments on "Velvotek" I seem to enjoy playing around with these chilled and slightly off kilter urban vibes. For some reason when writing one of these I always have an image of a dark rainy night looking down on a quiet city or that scene out of Blade Runner where the humanoid/robot is sat in the rain on a roof (in the dark) waiting to die because his time was up. Yes i do like a bit of Sci-fi (I prefer the old Blade Runner to the new one though). Thanks again
