Seeking music for Broadcaster Media Archive

We’re seeking songs, preferably albums, for inclusion in a TV Production network database, where TV producers in one of Scandinavia’s main TV stations, find their music for TV shows, documentaries and films. Delivery of audiofiles to this public broadcaster media archive, gives radio- and TV producers easy access to audiofiles for use in radio and TV-productions. All remuneration for such use is paid by the broadcaster to collecting societies according to Norwegian law.
We'd like collections of songs, or albums, because it makes it easier for a TV producer/director, to find what they’re looking for, when they are presented with a collection of songs, with the same theme/genre. So if you have an already released album, or a collection of songs with the same theme/genre, we will register the songs in the database, as one release containing several songs.

We are looking for instrumentals, beats and vocal songs in these genres. Pop, rock, electronica, hip hop, R&B, indie pop/rock, classical, cinematic, jazz.

How does it work:
If we select your music, we will rename each song, so that we only collect royalties for the work we are responsible for. This means that we will register each song in the Norwegian PRO called TONO, where Boah Sounds will be listed as publisher, and the songwriter info we will receive from you.

The split is setup after this model, based on standard Norwegian publishing split:
Performance rights:
Writer ’s share: 66.67%
Music Publisher’s share: 33.33%
Mechanical rights:
Writer’s share: 50%
Music Publisher’s share: 50%

After we have registered each song, we will ad the songs to the library, which will be a digital upload of each song. We have to register each song in the TV production library, and also register all the respective songwriters again, so it reflects the TONO registration, and that potential plays of your music, will be registered correctly.

If your music is being used, the artists / songwriter’s respective PRO will handle payments directly to the artist, based on reports from TONO. This means that Boah Sounds will not handle any payments that originate from Performance royalties. It is hard to estimate any typical amounts, as it all depends on various factors, based on time of play, number of plays, type of show etc.

If there are any mechanical royalties to be paid, typical one-time fee for a commercial etc, we will contact you directly, and have the payments sent to the artist. We would then ask the artist for an invoice, that we pay directly.

The TV production network has the following requirements: Audio:
• Supported format is WAV (PCM)
• Bitrate not lower than 1.4Mbps
• Sampling rate not lower than 44.1KHz
• Bits per sample must be 16 or 24
• Minimum 2 channels (stereo)
• Should originate from a high quality source
Picture/ Cover art:
• Recommended dimensions are 2400 x 2400 pixels.
• Minimum dimensions are 1400 x 1400 pixels.
• Must be one of the following formats: Jpeg.
• Should be square in order to get best result in all outlets.
• Must utilize a RGB color scheme.
• Must be smaller than 8MB.
• Should not be to compressed.
• Should not contain a "offer sticker" or similar tags.
4-5 bullet points (in English) describing your artist / release. Tell us why your product should get listened to.

If your music is selected and registered into this library, Boah Sounds have no guarantee that your music will be used. But this is a great opportunity to have your music placed in a library that continuously are being used by producers and directors.

Please submit either one song with the intention of sending more songs if we connect by selecting your music, or send a playlist from Soundcloud etc, with only the songs that you want to submit are listed. Boah Sounds music producers will listen to each of the songs, and make a decision as soon as possible. Please do not send songs via email etc, until we have agreed upon this.
