Venues often can’t work out why they can’t get visitors to come back. It’s not because the bands you book aren’t able to entice anyone. It’s simply because your club isn’t providing an enjoyable experience. Bands do not have to rent their very own sound person to arrive and blend their set at a 300 cap venue. The in-house man or woman should be the best quality. Especially for renowned clubs, these engineers should be the crème de le crème.
We have an initiative to pitch and sell the work of young British-based composers. It is there to meet a particular need: for an increasing generation of makers to get help wider fame for the content of their music.
Our project hopes to represent an engaging and important selection of composers by making sure that scores, recordings and info about their work are available to as wide a range of performers, and hence listeners, as is available.
We report on many music prizes across the country which celebrate music. They range from those which champion brand new and experiemental music to celebrating the achievements of established and classic sounds. Get in touch if you’d like more information.
We provide music news about tours and album releases as well as selling albums and a selection of brand new music for you to enjoy. We have a wide range of music genres - folk, classical, pop, indie, jazz, rock, heavy metal and plenty more. We sell music by composers on our programmes and on our traditional music schemes, and a few select scores which you are able to download. For info of our prices, delivery and how to purchase materials, take a look at our how to order scores. You can also attain recordings from our excellent and newly developed download site.
Over 3000 composers can be listened to in one of our finest collections. Articles and interviews about the bands can be found on our Band page. You can read about their work and how to get it through the collection database. But please don’t expect to be able to watch any concert you want to. Because of licensing problems the rollout on the extent of the music video is delayed. There’s no standard deal for obtaining the legal entitlement to watch a live show. Every production requires extensive handling which involves almost everyone associated with the songs and the venue.
Trades between rights-holders and top music producers have made better the situation a little. In return for allowing an outside company to put on a show, rights holders often get the entitlement to give out the consequent recording, and are able to play it online as part of an internet offering.
