I have been thinking about this idea for quite a while. And I think it is a good moment to execute it. Starting a music playlist. We’re at home most of our time. Watching videos and listening to music more than ever before. At least I am.
Don’t forget to hit that like button if you appreciate this video. Also sub to my channel for my music and videos about how to write orchestral music for film.
A hard time for composers and musicians
Due to the world corona (COVID-19) pandemic musicians and composers are having a difficult time. Projects have been postponed or even canceled. Income through licensing decreased. Gigs are being canceled. And I can continue to list many other negative outcomes of this situation until we all end up in a depression.
Definitely not the purpose of this video! Cause this video and the message of it should be one of hope and positivity!
I want to support you as a musician or composer! And help you to get momentum, a following. Support you to grow your audience and to gain views on the social platforms.
Hidden gems and creative minds
I’ve been here around now on YouTube for almost a year. I started with nothing. Zero subscribers, zero experience with shooting videos and editing. A really awkward experience, but driven by passion for music and sharing knowledge.
And while I was discovering how it all worked, I met a lot of beautiful people. Talented people! Composers and musicians that are way ahead of me.
Let’s call them hidden gems! Creative minds! The ones that inspire me on a daily basis to continue with what I’m doing. Learning how to compose and write music for film and video. And to pay it forward. So others can benefit from it too.
A music playlist to get momentum and a following
So this video, this project, is about you! If you are a composer or musician creating music for film and video, you can submit one of your music tracks to this playlist. Think about which one to pick, cause there is only one spot reserved for one of your tracks. It’s limited to one submission only.
At this moment you can submit your music track by just throwing me a link in the comments on YouTube to your music track. I will listen to it and if it is appropriate, I will add it to the playlist.
Now I can hear you think, when is my music appropriate?
Well, I only have one rule at this moment. It has to be an original composition. No covers. They are not allowed. Only original work. Preferably piano, orchestral or hybrid, but not limited to these specific genres.
Youtube and Spotify
I will start promoting the playlist from second one. Do my utmost best to create as much traffic to it as possible. Getting your music tracks in the spotlights.
When your music is available on Spotify too, I will add it to a playlist on that platform too. Hopefully with an even more exposure for your music.
So start submitting your tracks! And I hope we can make a successful playlist. One we all can enjoy. And hopefully one that leads to other good things in life.
