Sync Music Listening Sessions are a great new way for you to get your music heard and get essential feedback from top music supervisors in TV, film, video games, ads, trailers, brands, apps and the internet. Here’s how it works.
- Every week, we hold a two-hour online listening session with a top music supervisor that’s strictly limited to twenty registrants. We do this to make sure all participants get heard, get to interact and get their music evaluated.
- Every participant will submit a song for evaluation to us for listening during the session by the guest music supervisor.
- Every participant will get a video archive of the session, and all Listening Session playlists will be posted on the SyncSummit website and promoted to our 40,000 person mailing list.
Every Sync Music Listening Session get your music directly into the ears of a music supervisor who’ll get you valuable feedback – and you’ll make a valuable new connection.
And though we cannot guarantee your music will be used in a project, getting the advice from and connection to key decision makers will give you the invaluable feedback you can use to fine-tune your approach to music supervisors and their projects.
The Sync Music Listening Sessions are a premium product with a strictly limited audience and in order to support our costs and the time, effort and energy of our guests, they are priced at $150 per session. This includes participation in the session, evaluation of your music, inclusion in the session playlist and promotion after the event.
