New York, NY and Santa Monica, CA (May 20, 2009)–JECO Music has launched The Score, the company’s newest online premium music library.
The Score was created specifically for dramatic TV, reality, documentary and film projects by JECO Music, which was founded by Jon Ehrlich, music composer for the FOX drama series House. Comprised of more than 500 unique tracks that are searchable via an online search engine, The Score offers users tracks that, once downloaded, are each embedded with ID3 metadata for easy searching within iTunes or other library software.
In keeping with JECO Music’s commitment to release library music containing tracks originally created for actual projects (for which JECO was able to retain the publishing rights), The Score aims to fill a void in production music by offering tracks with “dramatically more substance.”
Said Ehrlich, “As production budgets shrink and delivery times compress, we saw the need for a new long-form custom library to help producers score their projects almost as if the music was all custom-written. In fact, just like in our other two libraries–The Spot and The Source–each of the tracks on this new library was originally written for a specific TV show, film or doc. So the attention to detail is there in a way I feel is lacking in a lot of other library music I’ve heard.”
Ehrlich adds, “When you hear these tracks, you can tell instantly that they are original and not bulk-produced. All of them have a custom feel, and none of them sound or feel like typical stock music.”
Composer and JECO Music co-founder Leigh Roberts says, “The Score is a library with a distinct purpose–to provide the right emotional content for a scene without sounding canned or self-conscious. We feel the way to do this is not by having a composer sit in a room all day writing, say, ‘energetic’ music, but by pulling from stuff we’ve already done that has been informed by real creative, real visuals, real story.”
