Dege Legg has a song licensed by a national American television series. The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation wants to teach you to do the same.
Tuesday at 6 p.m. Tipitina’s Music Co-op is hosting Licensing Music to Film, TV & Videogames. This workshop is free and the man conducting it is no slouch: Daniel Carlin is chair of the Film Scoring Department at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and former Grammys chairman. Carlin has worked in the music industry for more than 30 years, working in musical supervision on television and movies like Steel Magnolias, An Officer and a Gentleman and more. He is a co-founder of Segue Music.
Licensing to the visual arts mediums means the owner or owners of the songs get those luscious royalty checks. It also means that your work gets heard by a much wider audience and increases your chances for national exposure, which can mean better representation, fiercer record sales and just generally a lot more opportunities.
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation has created the Sync Up conference and workshops like these are meant to work in conjuction with that workshop’s ideals. Sync Up happens during Jazz Fest every year and it is one of the biggest music meet-and-greets, and industry networking tool. Sync Up is collaborating with Tipitina’s Co-op to bring more of these free events to you all the time.
Tip’s Co-op is located downtown at 125 S. Buchanan Street. Call 234-5137 for more information.
