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)
congratz alan, always a delight to hear about your latest milestones
I like to make music PERIOD. whether its for a brief, for the challenge, for therapy, for art, for purpose, and yes for money. same way i like to do gigs whether its a big event for big bucks, a hole in the wall for some change, or a friends bday party for some cake. Im not sure if anyone does any type of music solely for the money. dont misconstrue someones financial determination (or desperation) derail the fact that this is still passion at its core, only priorities change not the means. in fairness the guy who does loops and assembles songs still gets a kick out of making something.
and if theres ever a Music Lovers Report i’ll join that too lol.
