What is Production Music?
Production music (also known as library, background or mood music) is used in every imaginable media production. You hear it every day; whether as background music in TV productions, for ultimate impact in the film trailers or emotive builds in ads. Our production music catalogue features a comprehensive selection of genres and styles, which can deliver the right music for every mood.
All tracks have been cleared for licensing and can be used immediately. The specialty is that a production music library is both publisher and label in one. We have the assignment of the copyrights (the composition) and the artist rights (the recording) in one hand. This eliminates the need for lengthy clarification processes with several rights holders.
The price of Production Music is well below the prices of, for example, commercial pop titles. This is possible because we do not assign our titles exclusively, which means that they are used more frequently. Our music is produced to the same or higher standard as popular music. Due to the clear focus on applications instead of expensive artist promotion, and the fact that we have our own recording studios and do not have to rent expensively, we can offer our entire production music repertoire on favorable terms.
