TORONTO, ON - MusicForProductions.com, (http://www.musicforproductions.com/) an industry leading website that significantly improves the process of sourcing and licensing music for productions while offering a first-rate music selection, is officially launching today.

By being the first in Canada to offer key improvements such as: "mouse-over" music previews with Flash technology; a highly developed search engine; "best of" collections; and the use of Canadian flags to denote Canadian composers, Music For Productions (MFP) is focused on becoming Canada's number one source for licensing music for productions. In addition, the company is breaking new ground by being Canada's first full-service site, offering both a song catalogue – with songs from indie artists, bands and labels – as well as production music libraries. With everything an organization needs to source and license music for productions, MFP provides one-stop shopping to its clients.

"Traditionally, finding music for productions has been a time-consuming and tedious process. Our goal has been to leverage technology to create a service that is the exact opposite: easy-to-use, accessible and convenient," says Jean Anfossi, President, Music For Productions. "We've done all of this while keeping the quality of music front and centre, assembling a first-rate inventory. From fast-paced commercials to emotional, narrative films, MFP is well-equipped to meet the needs of any production."

MFP's "mouse-over" music preview is the fastest way to access and audition music - faster even than listening to tracks on a CD – and is an industry-leading feature.
Other MFP features aimed at maximizing efficiency and convenience include:

  • A content management application allowing music to be saved in a project folder or shared with others via email
  • An advanced search engine with an "in the style" feature, making it possible to find music that is similar to a well-known artist or band. Music For Production clients can also search for music using title, description, keyword, genre, sub-genre, instrument or composer
  • "Best of" collections listing the best tracks from some of the world's leading production music libraries including BMG libraries, Megatrax, Atmosphere, Koka Media, Manhattan Music which are available to Canadian clients
  • Canadian flags which help clients with Canadian content requirements to easily identify music that meets this need.

MFP clients can preview, download and license music from their computer, 24/7.
Registered clients can try music in their productions by downloading Wav
(16 Bit/44Khz) or MP3 (320kbps) files at no charge. Music can be licensed by completing a licence application on-line, which Music For Productions can instantly approve. From start to finish, the entire process can be done on the computer without exchanging paperwork or CDs. "We feel we've really streamlined the process, eliminating time-consuming steps while reducing costs," says Anfossi, "And, clients have the opportunity to be more hands-on, searching for music on their own without the need for a music consultant.

With an emphasis on quality, MFP increases weekly the number of tracks on their site. As well, in addition to representing music catalogues, MFP is a publisher with publishing agreements in place with: Canadian label Reinvent Music; Canadian composers Rob Khurana, Guy Maisonneuve and Yuri Sazonoff; and US Composer Jay Condiotti. MFP has sub-publishing agreements in the USA with: Jamnation Songs (BMI); Willow Bay Music (ASCAP); Velvet Vista Music (ASCAP); and Nashville-based Brock Music Inc. These relationships allow MFP the flexibility to license music worldwide and to accommodate clients with a range of music budgets.

"Finding and licensing music for productions on-line is the way of the future. The efficiencies are simply too great to ignore. By continuing to provide industry leading innovations while offering a varied selection of top-quality music, we are at the forefront of this change," says Anfossi. "We believe MusicForProductions.com is an industry-leading experience that is second to none."
