MusicBrief™ is an online bespoke music platform that operates 24/7. We connect agencies and brands with screen composers, simplifying scoring and licencing.
Because we score music to picture, bringing your pictures, and the narrative to life. Most of those other music licencing sites only offer pre-recorded pieces of music or “library tracks”, which rarely give the same level of impact as scored music.
All of our professional screen composers are signed to strict Non Disclosure Agreements, which prohibits the sharing of any data, information, or material related to your brief.
A hand-picked team of professional screen composers from around the world, who specialize in scoring music for television commercials and online brand content. These talented individuals have an extremely high hit rate of “nailing the brief” and subsequently deliver approved music scores faster to their clients.
We have created an “even playing field” business model, where any professional screen composer, whether they are currently freelance, based at a music house or touring with a band can pitch on work while maintaining their current employment roles. This of course is amazing for you, as it enables you to tap into a rich pool of talent, all in the one place.
Yes, we do not charge for demos, you only pay if you wish to make changes to and or license a selected demo.
Typically you will receive between 10 to 15 demos and sometimes more, depending on the quality of your brief.
Once you have listened to all your demos and have selected a track you must now pay for it to take it to the next round for revisions and or licensing.
Once you have chosen and paid for your preferred demo, we will make all the necessary revisions until you are happy with the final track.
Yes, we will create the required amount of cut-downs at no extra cost.
We offer three simple blanket licences:
|FEE||MEDIA||TERM OF LICENCE|
|AUS $8,000||Online only||12 months / Worldwide|
|AUS $15,000||Any media||12 months / Worldwide|
|AUS $20,000||Any media Plus||Perpetuity / Worldwide|
Yes, however you will need to pay a ‘Cross Campaign’ Usage Fee of AUS$1,000.00
All payments are made via Pay Pal or Electronic Funds Transfer. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. We will also accept an official Purchase Order as a guarantee of payment.
Simply that. If you choose the Any Media + package (buyout), there are no rollovers, repeat fees, or ongoing administration costs. Once you have purchased the music you can use it on your TVC or content piece in perpetuity, on all or any media (please view our Terms of Sale for full terms and conditions). *Note; The composer retains 100% of the publishing.
Yes, our producers are on call 24 hours a day to answer any questions you may have and work with you on your brief.
The maximum duration we’ll work to is 3:00 minutes.
We prefer to work to “Locked Off”, “Online” or “Final” pictures because that invariably produces a better outcome, but will commence work with your “Agency” or “Client” approved Ofﬂine, if your timeline demands it.
