Composer World - About Joining
Thank You for your interest in joining Composer World. We invite composers worldwide here. Please read the following as it will apply to you if you are considering joining us. We are constantly searching for composer artists from all over the world, and virtually all styles of music submissions are accepted. Please understand we are not a competition site, or some battle of the bands contest. This is also not the place to enhance your ego. If that is all you want, then please try elsewhere. We merely wish to help composer artists get their works out to the public.
* Condition 1:You must be an Independent composer.
* Explanation 1: Independent means you are not affiliated with any organizations such as the R.I.A.A. (Recording Industry Association of America), or other commercialized music agencies. This does not mean you can not sell your own CDs to the public, as a matter of fact we encourage you to do so. But we want to see independent artists make money for themselves, and not some fat cat agency.
* Condition 2: You must be willing to supply at least 1 completed MP3 music track for the general public to download for free. We will provide you with an upload link to do so, when you are ready.
* Explanation 2: This does not mean you need to offer entire CDs of your work. These are considered "teasers" to get people interested more in your talents.
* Condition 3: You must be willing to keep us updated on your work.
* Explanation 3: This is pretty obvious. If you do not update, in due time people will just assume you moved on to other things and stopped composing music. Also you risk being dropped by this site without further notice.
* Condition 4: If you are borrowing samples (ripping) from another music source, you must also give that artist credit. Also it would be a good idea to get their permission.
* Explanation 4: Another obvious condition. This is a common courtesy amongst composers, and at times a legal issue as well.
* Condition 5: You must be willing to supply us with images, links to your site (if you have one) and bio information.
* Explanation 5: Yet another obvious condition. Let's face it, without those items your pages would be pretty boring :-) Check the examples of the other composers for this. Also if we do not receive the info we need, your pages will be kept on hold and not posted.
So there you have it. Each of these condition items must be met in order for you to join Composer World. In exchange we will post 3 pages for you. 1: An intro page / home page with a review written by the Composer World webmaster. 2: A bio page telling some facts about you. 3: A contact page for site visitors to send you feedback from. 4: Links to the download area for your music, your store, and links to your other sites as well. So if you want to join us, please send your request to us via our Contact Page Be sure to fill out all the fields.
** Types Of Music We Will Refuse: We will not post any composers music that contains or promotes criminal activity, bodily harm, or prejudice against others. Also we will not post any composers music containing extreme usage of offensive language.**
