Hi peeps! Does anyone know how the "Composition Rights" and "Sound Recording Rights" on kompoz relate to performance and mechanical rights? I wanted to register some of my finished tunes and naturally want to give credit to all the great kompozers which have contributed to the music! :) Perhaps someone already has experience with this?

Hi, For those who are looking to grow their visibility, I thought I'd mention that I'm happy to include links to your websites/blogs/Soundblend pages on the 'Promoted Artists' page on my website. Won't deliver huge volumes of visits (at the moment anyway) but I guess every little bit helps. I've already got a couple of Kompoz members on the page so you may recognise some of the names. :) Here's the Promoted Artists page. Just send me a message if you'd like to be included.

My two cents and I'm hoping to start a discussion: Internet has made it too easy for people to say they like something. If the majority of users are in for promotion and not discovery (such as in Soundcloud), it doesn't work that well. The thing is everyone on these sites knows it is unrealistic to expect anyone to listen to their tracks unless they themselves are actively contributing to the community, interacting with other artists etc. So the whole Soundcloud site is music makers showing each other fake support/attention in order to promote their own music. In the end it seems everyone is putting in all that effort only to get superficial responses and to end up with a fake fan base. It is an internet trap.

Surprised there isn't more activity in this group. There is so much talent here and so much great music on this site! I would think lots of people would be out there promoting and making some money from their art. I know that money isn't always the goal though. Anyway, hoping to interact with others who are interested in film and tv licensing. :)

Please share your experience with music promotion sites. I'll start. 1. Youtube... like Daaa... but less then 10k views per song is more like nothing. 2. Soundcloud... good. i love it and i feel i have a good community there that really listen to my songs. 3. Bandcamp - nice but i couldn't find any real usage unless you think you will be able to sell your songs. 4. FB... going down and down. nobody really listen to our tracks there. They just do "like" to make us feel good. 5. Google+.. hmmm, god knows if it has any impact 6. Instagram... might have some potential to promote your music. i dont know how yet. 7. Twitter... only if you are Trump 8. Spotify... might have good potential but its not easy to promote there. working on that right now ... ohhh and please look for "lior porat" and follow :) ha ha ha ha 9. iTunes... same as spotify. 10.Check Routenote. gives you ability to upload your music for free to many partners. i used it with success. 11. musicindustryhowto - i could not figure out yet if its spam or good articles. 12. Reverbnation - i could not find any usage of it. i will be glad if anybody will say differently. 13. Songtradr - Interesting. check it out. i doubt that any real promotion can get out of it. probably useless. 14. hitrecord - could not find any realy usage And now you... Please share your knowledge.

I could use some advice... I got the following message from Reverbnation: ?Congrats! You?ve been selected to take part in this exclusive beta program, where your song will be included in the Trending Pop Artists playlist. ?The Promoted Playlist will be targeted to fans interested in your style of music through Facebook Ads so you can now get the exposure you deserve. This one week-long campaign is only available to select artists for a limited time. Claim your slow now for $50 before they sell out! ?The Facebook campaign will run from 5/10/2018 until 5/17/2018.? What do you guys think?? Worth the money or not? (I have fourteen hours til the deadline to decide....) I advertised through Reverbnation once in the past and accomplished basically nothing. So I?m pretty hesitant to spend FIFTY DOLLARS without any guarantee of it being worth the money.

New obsession: Basically you earn promotion for your own stuff by using your social media platforms to help other artists (of your choice) promote THEIR stuff. Win/win! And there are some seriously awesome artists on there, too :) Some fun discoveries ;) So that is a recommendation ;)

I created this song for my new demo album of the same name. I'd like to see anyone's remix of this song and have the original .zip file upon request. It could also use new drums and mastering of the original arrangemen Im looking to make a separate album of credited artists remixes to this song. Thank you guys! I look forward to working with you!
