Tracks & Fields is a music licensing platform for advertising, film, TV and interactive. We specialize in projects that combine music and image, so called synch licensing.
Synch licensing is a great way to receive extra income and get a promotional boost. For most projects it doesn’t matter if you are famous or underground, as long as your track is the one that works best with the picture.
We are not a music library. We give you access to current music needs and you decide which projects are relevant for you. For any given project, the deal is the same for everyone joining.
You can get started within a few minutes and submit your music to the current requests. You only license your music when you have a license offer on the table.
Once your music is chosen, we assist you through the process of edits (if required), legal paperwork and collecting payment.
Access to companies’ licensing needs.
Just have a look yourself. We aggregate current licensing opportunities in advertising, film, TV and interactive. These companies usually need very specific music very fast. Not every artist, label or publisher can build and maintain a network to keep in touch with all the music supervisors, film producers, ad agencies and game developers. We do this every day so we can let you know if and when your music is needed out there.
It’s non–exclusive and you can join and leave any time.
By registering for a free account you can see the current projects running on the site. If you decide to submit music to a project you can decide on our different premium plans. These can be started and stopped at any time. No music is licensed unless you have received a formal offer that you agree on.
Using Tracks & Fields doesn’t block you from licensing your Tracks somewhere else. This is especially helpful when you already have contracts with agents, labels, publishers etc who are also pitching your music.
You keep your creative control.
We believe that you should decide which projects you want to identify with and which you don’t. If you were a vegan you probably wouldn’t want to license for a meat commercial. Or you don’t agree to certain budgets or terms. That decision is yours. You don’t have to pre–clear your music and there is no “add to shopping basket” next to your music. Whenever you see a project of your interest, just hit “submit”. When your music is chosen, you will get all necessary details on the project and only then you license your music.
We assist you in the licensing process.
We will assist you throughout the editing and licensing process and make sure there are simple and fair licensing contracts in place that are transferring solely the rights that are needed for the project and stated in the request. And we help you collect the money and even split the payment among rights holders if needed.
Open your repertoire to synch licensing with minimal effort.
We keep you up to date with current projects via email. As premium user you even receive alerts that match your preferences (e.g. if you are only interested in TV productions). Thus, as an artist or label you can start your synch licensing business instantly without opening a department and hiring people for building the network and doing sales.
Your privacy is respected: public and private tracks.
If you upload tracks to our platform you decide to set them as public or private. By setting them public you make the tracks available for direct licensing by our clients that need them. And you can distribute your Tracks via widget on your blog, website etc.
You don’t want others to see which requests you are submitting to? Unless it is a request with public submissions, the submissions are only visible to the people who have started the request.
