Marmoset Presents: How to Craft Music for Sync Licensing (and Maybe Quit Your Day Job Too)

We want to invite you to a community talk we're hosting for our local working artist community at our HQ on Wednesday, February 3. We're facilitating a discussion on how to craft music for sync licensing (and how to maybe quit your day job while you’re at it). This artist education event will be followed by a Q&A session.

With our talented group of panelists consisting of Marmoset staff and experienced songwriters, we'll be diving into what goes into creating a project specifically for sync licensing, and how to better understand what goes into composing for film. Some factors include: filmmaking movement, arcs, instrumentation, texture, and a variety of others elements. We’ll provide some tips and tricks into how if you are good at making music for licensing and can build up a sizable catalog, your music can actually earn you money while you relax on a beach.

Location: Marmoset // 2105 SE 7th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214

Date: Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Time: Doors @ 6:30pm
