Music.Film is the new online Film Music search, licensing and community portal brought to you by Cutting Edge Group.
We can all recall great uses of music in films, from Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue at the opening sequence of Woody Allen’s Manhattan, to Hermann's score for Psycho and the opening orchestral strains heralding the scrolling text of Star Wars: A New Hope. The two art forms inextricably link in our consciousness to create moments of magic.
With over 10 years of supporting film music and over $30m invested in the creation of filmscores and Original Soundtracks. Music.Film is the World’s pre-eminent independent Film Soundtrack catalogue, giving our users access to over 400 scores, including the likes of Drive, Their Finest, Arrival, Whiplash, Hacksaw Ridge, Carol and Sicario.
We are the one-stop destination for licensing great film scores for secondary usage across all media types. We actively support and invest in film music, and are consequently in a unique position to revolutionise how movie soundtracks are licensed for secondary use in TV programming, advertising, games, trailers and other commercial contexts. Traditionally, use of major film scores has often been beyond the scope of existing PRO blanket licences and often difficult to directly licence. Because we control both master and publishing rights, Music.Film is uniquely placed to break this mould and allow extended use of their repertoire. With creative and licencing teams in both London and Los Angeles we can offer rapid response to queries and licences around the clock, whether for one-off individual needs or for annual blanket deals.
As we develop, Music.Film aims to become the destination to educate, inform and participate in the film music space by regularly keeping its followers up to date with all the latest developments in film music through interviews, events and news, whilst allowing potential licensees access to our World Class, One Stop catalogue including scores by the cream of modern composers including Johann Johannsson, Rachel Portman, Thomas Newman, Carter Burwell and Cliff Martinez.
