MGT43: The Place To Find And Hire Music Composers – Alexandre Imbeaux (UniqueSound)
UniqueSound is a young French/American startup, which won the Midemlab competition in 2015, and which claims to be the first platform to find and hire music composers. Currently in beta, UniqueSound allows composers and sound designers to create portfolios to showcase their work, and to get hired directly by clients - including global brands, advertising agencies, production companies, directors, and music supervisors.
In this WeSpin Recipes interview, conducted after a meeting at the Midem conference, the company’s COO Alexandre Imbeaux explained how exactly the platform works both for composers and brands, how to apply, and what are the various advantages of having a UniqueSound profile.
Listen to the interview to also learn what to expect from UniqueSound later this year, and why no one should forget about the value of music compositions.
Some of the topics covered in the episode:
• Composers: your music is expensive.
• What UniqueSound is, and where its idea came from.
• UniqueSound costs and fees (and lack of those).
• How exactly to apply as a composer.
• Selling existing songs vs. creating new music.
• The uses of a UniqueSound portfolio.
