The creation and production of music for media projects – and in general – can get quickly get complicated. I know this from first-hand experience.
To get a piece of music made for a project, I’ve found myself dealing with managing multiple external and internal creative teams, including composers, producers, artists, engineers, and of course clients, many of them across distances, time zones and with their own methods of communication (email, IM and phone all at once), sometimes in different languages.
And, it’s cumbersome to go back and forth with files and links, in different formats, usually using several cloud-based services at once.
It seems that much of the time, I spend more time on the project management aspect of creating music for projects than working on what we actually need and want to do, which is to make great music.
The fact is, managing these multiple teams, formats and methods takes at least as much time as actual music creation. Even more important, these complications quickly become inefficiencies that hamper creativity and can grind projects to a halt, causing delays and cost overruns.
The typical music production collaboration process is inefficient, it wastes time, it wastes money and it’s incredibly frustrating when all you really want to do is create and deliver great music on time and on budget.
