Licensing music to TV, film, adverts and video games is a lucrative and crucial income stream for many independent labels. It’s an important area of business to master, and this event will give you the knowledge, tips and music supervisor contacts needed to succeed.
Having sold-out every year for the last 6 years, AIM’s ever-popular Sync Licensing conference returns on Monday 14th November 2016, in association with Music Gateway.
The evening will open with a special keynote interview with Nora Felder, music supervisor on hit shows including Californication, Roadies and Netflix Original hitStranger Things. The interview, conducted by Mute Song Head David McGinnis, will explore Nora’s illustrious career, how she chooses music and what music she’s looking for right now.
There will then be a panel discussion featuring experts on synchronisation from the worlds of TV, adverts, films and video games. The panel will discuss the following key topics:
- The process involved in placing a track
- What makes a track ‘sync-able’?
- What syncs have they done recently, and what are they looking for right now?
- What can labels do to improve their chance of achieving sync licences for their artists?
- How are deals done, and what sort of figures are involved?
- How is the sync licensing business changing?
The panel will then participate in a listening session, during which 10 tracks submitted by attending labels will be played, with the panel offering advice and suggestions on how they might be used and how to get them sync’d.
Speakers confirmed include:
- Ariel Sommer, Music Supervisor (synch2it)
- Louisa Rainbird, Creative Manager, Television (The Music Sales Group)
- Vikram Gudi, Founder (Elephant Music)
- Sarah Giles, Music Supervisor (Wave Music)

The panel, chaired by Simon Raymonde of Bella Union, will then take part in a listening session, with 10 tracks played and discussed from those submitted by audience members.
All attending labels will be asked to submit 1 track that will be considered for a shortlist of 10 that will be discussed on the evening in terms of their sync suitability, details will be provided following booking confirmations.
