Custom CHANSON-O-GRAMMES by ELAN member Krista Muir

Sun 17 Jan, 2016 - ELAN Classifieds

Chanson-O-Grammes are custom love songs for your beloved ones. It is a bilingual songwriting service that I started in February 2013. Once a year I offer this unique service to friends and fans worldwide. It was sparked when I heard fellow songwriter Goh Nakamura was writing Valentine's Day songs for fans. I thought I'd offer a similar service in French/English and see what would happen. The response was overwhelmingly positive and I wrote 7 songs the first year. Click to hear samples and ready testimonials here: https://soundcloud.com/hyporecords/sets/chanson-o-grammes-2014


Deadline to order: Feb 1st, 2016
Email: hose@lederhosenlucil.com for more details
Cost: "Pay What It's Worth" upon delivery of the song. All profits go towards funding my next album.

Streaming Royalties Rise, but Not as High as Music Industry Wanted

Thu 17 Dec, 2015 - News

"A panel of federal judges on Wednesday increased the royalty that free Internet radio services like Pandora will pay record companies for the next five years, a decision that has been closely watched in the music industry and on Wall Street.

According to a summary of the decision posted by the panel, the Copyright Royalty Board, Pandora and other webcasters like it will have to pay record companies 17 cents for every 100 times they play a song when they stream music to listeners who do not pay for subscriptions. The current rate is 14 cents.

The decision, which takes effect next year, means that Pandora — the largest Internet radio service, and the music industry’s primary antagonist over two years of litigation — will pay millions more in royalties to record labels and performing artists to use their songs. Last year Pandora paid 44 percent of its revenue, more than $400 million, in royalties for recordings..."

Bradyworks Public Auditions for Electric Guitarists

Tue 28 Oct, 2014 - Calls for Submissions

Bradyworks, in collaboration with the SMCQ’s Montreal/New Music festival (MNM), will present a new composition for 100 electric guitars in March 2015. The work, entitled “100 Very Good Reasons Why___”, celebrates the 100th birthday of legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul. To perform this new work, Bradyworks is looking for 80 amateur guitarists to complete its 100-strong electric guitar ensemble called Instruments of Happiness EXTREME. Guitarists should have an interest in exploring new musical ideas. The music, composed by artistic director Tim Brady, is well suited for guitarists with a few years experience, but does not require the ability to read music (though this would help), or to be a virtuoso player. All you need is a good sense of tempo and a steady beat, and the ability to play softly as well as to play loud!
