Music Copyrights: Short, Sweet, and Simple - Part 1

Music Copyrights: Short, Sweet, and Simple - Part 1

Music moves people in many ways.  Music motivates, inspires, excites, and comforts.  A person gravitates towards music either to enhance a state of mind or to change a state of mind.  For others, the music that a person listens to reflects that person’s state of mind.  Its power and impact is undeniable and invaluable.  Its presence is everywhere – watching a live concert, holding on the phone, shopping in the mall, praying at church service, attending a wedding, working out, crying during a funeral, screaming during a horror movie, or feeling the warm fuzzies during a love and romance movie. Whenever, wherever, music is there weaving and casting its magic.  Music is either being  piped in by the establishment for its patrons or we are bringing the music we like. No one leaves home without music. It is a part of who we are. ..

The Birth of the Master Sound Recording

This quote captures the profound significance of music’s value to its creators and performers.  The sound recording team is a group comprised of artists, composers, music producers, and sound engineers, who come together with a singular goal of producing an artistic masterpiece embodied in the final sound recording.  Naturally, the team expends much labor, effort, and emotion in reaching a final product that ultimately brings utter pleasure to their listeners' ears. (Well, that’s the goal at the very least.) (Music Producer n.d.) (Pras and Guastavino 2011) Much detail is carved into the notes…
