How to… un­der­stand de­liv­er­ables

Future Music - - PRODUCER’S GUIDE TO -

A score is a score, right? Yes and no. De­pend­ing on the project, and how much flex­i­bil­ity the client wants, com­posers may re­ceive a (some­times ex­ten­sive) list of de­liv­er­ables. Say the job is to write the ti­tle se­quence for a light en­ter­tain­ment TV show. The mak­ers will need their main theme, of course, but po­ten­tially also un­der­scores (ver­sions with the main theme, or drums, or synths, or strings etc miss­ing, to use un­der di­a­logue) break bumpers (to go into com­mer­cial breaks) stings, end ti­tles… the list can go on. Be sure you’ve asked for a full list be­fore you start/price a job.
