INFORMATION

What is Production Music?

Production Music is specifically designed for use as theme or incidental music in audio visual productions such as film, television, radio and new media. The music is made widely available to professionals working in production and post production.

The advantages of using production music are:-

  • There are no pre-clearance formalities involved in its use
  • Licences issued by MCPS cover the right to reproduce the musical work, sound recording and artist performance - all the rights normally required by a production company.
  • It is licensed according to the rates published in the MCPS rate card enabling you to budget accurately.
  • Because it is pre-recorded, potential users have the opportunity to test a wide range of music against picture prior to making any payment. Fees are only due when the audio visual production is exhibited, broadcast or offered for sale.
  • Fees are set in accordance with the published rate card.
  • No charge is made for auditioning, the supply of DVDs, hard drives and music downloads to accredited clients (those who have signed the MCPS Code of Conduct). Application for a licence has to be made to MCPS in advance of exploitation. These licences are available for different types of use and for all territories (including world).
