Taxi Music Forward - Dramedy with Middle Eastern Flavors 

..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."

Had a little fun with a virtual duduk, udu, dejembe, and baya. (Say, what?!)

A BUNCH of DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES with MIDDLE EASTERN Flavor are needed by an International Music Library with worldwide distribution through Universal! 

NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this request, we purposely didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. 

Please submit well-crafted Dramedy Instrumental Cues that utilize the instrumentation, rhythms, and melodies of the Middle East! Your submissions should tastefully blend Dramedy elements like Pizzicato strings, Piano, Violin, Clarinet, etc. with Middle Eastern instrumentation like Duduk, Ney, Santoor, Saz, Bouzouki, etc. 

NOTE: Although they’re open to Instrumental Cues that fall pretty much anywhere on the Dramedy spectrum, they DO NOT want to hear anything that sounds childish or child-like. 

Be sure to structure your Cues around a central melodic idea while layering instrumentation in and out as they progress to keep them moving forward with a developmental arc. Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Broadcast Quality is needed. 

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: "If you plan to incorporate 'ready-made' loops into your productions, please make sure each stem has at least 2 layers! That way, every loop has an additional layer that distinguishes it from the original ‘source’ loop.”

Two! One brand new, and one...brand old. 

DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a European Production Music Licensing Company that has an impressive list of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials! 

NOTE: They’ve JUST started running requests for music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet! This is a great opportunity to begin a new relationship!

Funny Background Music 

Please send them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that fall within the range of the Dramedy spectrum. Your submissions can vary from quirky and silly, to happy and even mischievous. The quality of productions and compositions has to be particularly high to please this client, so send us your best Cues! 

Be sure to build your Cues around a central melodic theme or motif, and keep it dynamic and forward-moving by layering other instruments in and out as your pieces progress. Avoid submitting anything that's busy, as it could interfere with a scene’s dialogue. 

All submissions should be about 90 seconds long (give or take). Solid edit points and Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are strongly encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
