majority of my recent statement has been from briefs, some not even for the specific brief. i havent done any 24hr turnarounds though.
also i think my productivity improved when i started mixing things around to keep my mind fresh (album, brief, RF, vocal songs). i easily burnout or get writers block when doing only one genre for long stretches
my best qtr so far, and my longest placement yet (3:30)
Hello Michael, yes
I see, thanks art…you think having an LLC is a better route to take?
I see, thanks jd for your input..i i am more worried about the arrangement per transcribed to my instrument (guitar). i can understand that if you play a rendition of minute waltz in piano it would be the same finger placement as any other pianist would cover it. but on guitar i can hit a harmonic on a certain note in the piece and worried another arranger would go “hey i came up with that harmonic idea on that note”, hence can a technique/idea be copyrightable?
i think they’re gone or changed address…site is now film music institute. havent seen an email from them per briefs for months
what a great tip brian, thanks! no need to copy paste and sort in excel anymore
congratz LA…thats amazing, and very inspiring. quite suprised you write kpop type cues, they r killing it
also got some back royalties as far back as 2019 Q2, and a nice chunk from NCTA..dont know what that is but ill take it.
what concerns me is the bunch of missed 2020 Q1 placements per tunesat, dont know if Its too early to reach out to them now or wait til next statement…
hey johnnyboy, my main inst is guitar so maybe its a bit different from piano sketchingwise. how i start depends on the genre. if rock, metal, blues, or any gtr focused track i start with the main riff and build around that. for EDM i start with sound design as that will dictate my approach to the texture and melody of the track, with hiphop i start with the groove. with flamenco, jazz, or neoclassical piano pieces i approach it as a songwriter with an ABA format.
I have tried to muscle through finishing a track in a day but couldnt do it (unless its ambient drone or tension). not that i literally couldnt as ive done 3 in a day before, i just cant leave it alone the next day, especially if i have a few days left before deadline. nowadays if i hit a wall i just take a break and do something non music related and not force it. an hour or 2 is usually enough for me. im also comfortable now to take weeks off and come back and still hit my monthly quota (10-12/mnth)
