Topic: Custom Written Music
Message: Posted by: KeirRoyale (Jul 26, 2008 02:43AM)
Does anyone know a good source to get music written? I am looking to use some music with some popular themes to them but don't want to have to deal with BMG/Ascap so I am hoping I might be able to have some original music written with a "flair" or essence of the themes I am after with out using the actual titles in question.

So if you know of anyone you might be able to recommend, let me know...

Opus 1 does some nice work.

Nathan Roberts does custom work also. He has done a few for me that were exactly what you are talking about. http://www.nathanjroberts.com/ is his website. and nathanjroberts@msn.com is his email.

Hope this helps,

Nathan Roberts: It would be nice if you could hear a preview sample of some of his music...?? Why would you offer music for sale, but not offer a 20 second sample?

If you're still looking for original, royalty-free music, I invite you to visit my website at http://www.MagiTracks.com. I specialize in composing music especially for magicians, and many Café members are familiar with my work through my former company (Sleight-of-Sound Productions) I also have personal endorsements from Jeff McBride, Franz Harary, Amos Levkovitch and other top magicians.

Anyways...just tossing my hat into the ring, and I hope you'll give us a listen!

Steve at Magictracks does a terrific job, he helped a friend of mine out in a pinch, and his music is probably the best sounding out there!

Thanks Steve, I have already contacted Nathan and have him working on this presently but if it does not work out for any reason I will be in touch.
