Taxi Music Forward(s) - Asian-Influenced and Urban Piano

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

I'm going to post two at once! They were forwarded within the a week or so of each other. I'm a little behind.

A Wide Range of Asian-influenced “Transitional” INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a hard-working, successful Music Licensing Company. 

They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the generalwheelhouse of the following references: 

Training Po - Hans Zimmer (Kung Fu Panda Soundtrack) 

Mists Of Pandaria Soundtrack - 2 - Why Do We Fight? 

Beautiful Chinese Music - Winds of Spring 

Quoting our client: "We want to hear Asian-influenced Instrumental Cues that can work for scene transitions in TV Shows and Documentaries." 

Your submissions can cover a range of moods and emotions, from Moody and Mysterious to Anxious and Suspenseful – and everything in between! Your arrangements can vary but should incorporate traditional Asian elements like (not limited to) bamboo flutes, gongs, and Taiko Drums, etc. Your Cues should also stay on one mood and melodic/rhythmic idea from start to finish while introducing subtle changes in texture, tone, and dynamics as it progresses. 

NOTE: They're also looking to hear Cues that have a tranquil quality, and that lean heavily on drones and sound design elements to convey the feeling of nature in the background, but please do NOT include any actual "nature" sound effects in your music, such as waterfalls, wind, animal noises, etc. 

Your submissions can range from 30 seconds to 2 minutes in length. Short intros (or no intro at all), good edit points, and buttoned/stinger endings will all probably work best. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

HAPPY, PIANO-Based INSTRUMENTAL CUES with an URBAN influence are needed by a very successful Music Library. They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic range of these references we got from them: 

“Broccoli [Official Instrumental]” by D.R.A.M ft. Lil Yachty 

“Playinwitme (Karaoke Version)” by KYLE ft. Kehlani 

Please send well-crafted, emotionally upbeat Piano Instrumental Cues with a feel-good sound. Submissions should be built around a rhythmic Urban/Hip-Hop beat.  Shape your Cues around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as they progress to create dynamics, interest, and forward movement. Please avoid anything that’s particularly busy as it could interfere with dialogue. 

Submissions should be about 90 seconds long (give or take) with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.
