“House” Composer Releases New Score Music Library

Film Music Magazine • May 21, 2009

Jon Ehrlich, music composer for FOX TV’s drama series House, and his company, JECO Music, announced the debut of “The Score,” their newest online premium music library.

“The Score” was created specifically for dramatic TV, reality, documentary, and film projects. 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.

Ehrlich said, “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. 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 sounds or feels 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.”

Composers putting composers out of work. What are we doing to each other?

Yeah…not sure this sits well. Have to think more about this. But it is what it is I guess….
