Production Music

Production music (also known as stock music or library music) is the name given to recorded music that can be licensed to customers for use in film, television, radio and other media.

Production music libraries own all of the copyrights of their music. This is so it can be licensed without the composer’s permission, as is necessary in licensing music from normal publishers. Operating in this way makes the process of sourcing music much more convenient and affordable for media creatives.

Christmas Album

November 17, 2014 Music News Blog No Comments

Diverse Music Solutions and the FDMSCIC boutique music production label are both proud and excited to present ‘Christmas’. A new album featuring five of the warmest, joyous and merry seasonal tunes written by our family of independent composers. The album features not one, but two versions of the festive classic ‘Jingle Bells’, each version re-worked into an original and interesting arrangement, Ben Hawthorne’s ‘Jingle All The Way’ is jazzy, funky and contemporary; Russell Huiskamp’s ‘Jingle Acoustic Bells’ is chilled out and features a soothing female vocal; Gabrielle Wagner’s ‘The Christmas Night’ is deep, meaningful and cinematic; Ricky Whaites’ ‘Good Times This Christmas’ is folky, warm and traditional, and the album is finished off with an urban electronic flavour from Arjun Chawda’s ‘One Xmas Evening’.

All three tracks in this weekly update are available to licence now with profits funding comunity focused activities – http://bit.ly/dmsskin1
