Taxi Music Forward - Light Drama Piano-Based Instrumental

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."


"LIGHT DRAMA" PIANO-Based INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by an EXCLUSIVE Music Library that's connected with many TV Production Companies and Showrunners! 

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is brand new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet! This is a great opportunity to create a new outlet for your music and begin a new relationship with an awesome company! 

This Library is looking for for a bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from them: 

Instrumental Reference #1 

Instrumental Reference #2 

Instrumental Reference #3 

Quoting the Library: "We'd like to hear light drama Cues in a range of moods from sad, to positive, hopeful to dark." 

Please submit well-composed, Piano-based Instrumental Cues that could create a light sense of drama in a range of TV show scenes. Your submissions can contain instrumentation in addition to Piano, but it should remain the base and focus of your pieces. Craft your Cues around a singular motif and mood, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Please be sure that your production and any software sounds or samples you use are high-quality and modern (nothing dated, please!). 

TAXI Tip: This Library is NOT looking for huge, building pieces. They want Cues that could help establish a mood in a scene without getting overwhelming. Listen closely to the references to see what we mean by this. 

All submissions should be at least 90 seconds long, and can run up to 2 minutes (a little bit longer is fine). Well-crafted, buttoned/stinger endings are required – do NOT submit anything with faded endings. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
