Excited for this contest! But I do have to echo a few other people in asking—can you give maybe give some examples as a guide? Before I found out about the contest I was actually beginning to work on a project that could be considered Indie Rock, but borders on “Indie Pop”. I was sort of going for a Florence and the Machine type of vibe rather than something harder like Arctic Monkeys. Indie Rock seems to be such a wide genre, Arctic Monkeys, London Grammar, Florence and the Machine, The Fleet Foxes, MGMT, Bastille, Passion Pit, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford and Sons; you get a lot of different styles. Some that are more pop, some that are more electronic, some that are more folk and some are more traditional rock, and some are just a mixture, but they’re all typically lumped into the Indie Rock category. So I guess what I’d like to know is if AJ is looking for a broad Indie Rock sound that embraces pop or folk influences or are you going for something more strictly rock?
I would assume that it is a simple as, Roman bought your license so he is good to go, but all the other fans, did they buy the license to your music? The answer is simple NO! So I bet you can claim! I am not an expert on this thing though, it is just a guess, but what ever happens please update us with the info if you can
There is not much development in the track and it is too repetitive, you should try turning it in to a fuller track, because it does indeed sound like an intro to a song and I as a listener liked the melody very much, but I kept waiting for more, like add another instrument, heavier drums, is there a bass? Couldn’t hear it because I listened to the track on my tablet, but if there isn’t you should deco add it. I am not sure what you are aming at, but you could make it in to a chorus verse type of deal, to give it a variation.
A little under 4 days for my latest.
you should have posted it in the item discussion part of the forum, I think you would have gotten a faster reply there.
What is an author fee? In my most recent sale, I was given an invoice with information (first time I’ve ever been given information about who bought my track), as well as a separate author fee deducted. Does anyone know what that’s about? Just curious because I’ve never had that before.
