"Alex, enough with the clickbait, alright?" Let me clarify.
Music has always been a part of me, and I always make time to write. However, there came a point when I faced a choice: to fully immerse myself in teaching and education or continue crafting music for video games and trailer production companies. Doing both became unsustainable. If I aim to give my students the best of me, I can't squeeze in composing for an entire trailer or game during brief free periods.
Just so we're clear, my passion for video games and trailer music remains undiminished. Yet, I've always aspired to create something uniquely mine — a business where I make the decisions and steer the direction.
Enter my recent initiative, Audio Artist Rise. It's designed to aid composers in navigating the complexities of the music industry and securing work. With this, I've achieved my entrepreneurial goal. So, while I've taken a step back from composing, you don’t have to.
Over the years, I've engaged in numerous conversations with fellow composers, monitoring forums and social platforms, and reflecting on my own experiences. It's evident that audio artists invest heavily in their craft — from equipment, sample libraries, plugins, to education. Yet, when it's time to market themselves and seek opportunities, many fall into repetitive pitfalls.
The usual routine? Posting tracks on Soundcloud, sending a generic "Composer submission" email, and a fleeting "Check out my latest track" announcement on Facebook. And if opportunities don't knock? They assume they've done all they could, often blaming the quality of their music.
Seeing many talented individuals repeatedly hit these hurdles motivated me to drive change. It was time for my new program Audio Artist Rise!
