Some of the most frequent questions we’re offered are:
“Aren’t you a music library?”
“Isn’t this just a music supervision service?”
The answer is “no” to both of them – and here’s the full explanation
LmK Music Production creates the required music, bespoke to the client’s needs.
Unlike libraries or music supervisors, who limit their service to picking their guesses from a music library – you can think of them as a musical shop assistant.
There is no music library because we don’t need it: we craft everything we need on the spot.
Something unique, like your needs too are.
Music libraries are useful in 2 occasions:
- You can’t compose music on your own
- You need industrial quantities of low quality music
Neither of these occasions apply to our business model:
We know how to create the right music, and we don’t take many works.
To truly pick the right soundtrack, you need so much music knowledge that you’ll be able to compose it yourself.
This one is pretty straightforward: in the moment you truly understand the craft you’re talking about, you’ll be able to do it yourself.
Otherwise, you’re just a witness (a spectator) – and, since we’re creating art, that doesn’t cut it.
LmK Music Production is composed by composers, instrumentalists and sound engineers. Not just “people with a music degree” or a long “music related CV”.
There is a big difference in merely having music training, and being actually able to compose the right soundtrack for your client’s needs – you can think of it as the eternal debate “book knowledge vs. practical knowledge”.
We have both: a formal training, coupled with extensive hands on experience.
In a few words: we’re actually able to create music.
Whenever someone advertises music knowledge, but has to use a music library to pick tracks, ask them “Why are you doing that, rather than straight up creating the music I’m asking you?”
An interesting question, isn’t it?
In case you get an answer, don’t forget about
- Ghost writers: a lot of “composers” use an army of talented musicians to create what they offer to the client as theirs – with all the moral and practical problems you can think of (e.g. Is it right to steal someone else’s talent? What happens when said talent migrates to greener pastures? And so on)
- Modern music technology allows you to create products of surprising quality with just a few thousands of pounds of equipment – something everyone can afford …but very few learned how to.
