How to find a great composer for all your projects!
-Find a Great Composer-
Give your project something special with custom music!
When it comes to picking project music, you could always buy off the shelf. That is to say, you can browse a bunch of tracks and pick the ones you want. But for some projects, only custom work will do. In that case, you need to find a great composer you can work with. That means someone who can turn your vision into a terrific soundscape. Someone you can click with creatively and work with collaboratively!
Great composers play well with others!
Finding just the right sound for your project is often more intuitive than anything. Once you find a great composer that you love, selecting the specific tracks will be easy. But getting there is going to take a little research on your part. First of all, listen, listen, listen! Have a little taste of many different styles and sounds. Pay especially close attention to how you feel when you hear the music. Without a doubt, there will be a few composers you keep coming back to. If a musician moves you, then, once paired with your production, they’ll move your audience, too.
Secondly, consider getting recommendations from others in your industry. If you’re making a film, then talk to other directors and producers to see who they love. Even if they’ve never commissioned custom work, they might have artists they adore. For brand-building projects and advertising, marketing folks will definitely be able to help you find a great composer for television and radio jingles. After all, they know what sells!
Be clear about what you need!
There are many excellent composers out there. But to find a great composer requires a deep understanding of your audience’s needs. In other words, deciding in advance what it is you want to convey with sound is key. For example, in film or television, a custom score can guide the viewer’s mood. It may help viewers understand foreshadowing in a mystery or even clarify a shift from sadness to joy. If you want a clear theme throughout the production, then an individual composer is best. Conversely, having a handful of different composers can bring a wide range of emotions to your film or video.
Once you’ve got a shortlist, get in touch with a few composers to see what they can offer. Some might be busy when you need them. Others may be outside your budget. If you absolutely love someone’s sound, but your can’t quite afford their custom work, then consider buying a nonexclusive license to their published work. It won’t be unique to your project, but you’ll still get their excellent sound.
