RipTide and pigFACTORY Announce Pacifica Music for Film, TV, Games and Advertising

Film Music Magazine • September 21, 2009

Pacifica Music, a new catalog of modern music, has been launched to supply affordable, high quality music to film studios, television networks, trailer houses, advertising agencies, game companies and corporate producers. Pacifica Music, LLC, is a joint venture between two leading independent licensing and publishing companies, RipTide Music and pigFACTORY. The announcement was made jointly today by Rich Goldman, Founder/RipTide Music, and Keatly Haldeman, CEO, pigFACTORY.

At launch, Pacifica Music will feature over 6,000 tracks of music across numerous genres, including hip hop, rock, pop, orchestral and electronica, with an additional 4-5,000 new tracks being added every six months. Pacifica Music, which will be deliverable through its website’s Search and Download engine, a variety of popular digital asset management systems and on hard drives, offers a collection of works from a global network of composers, musicians and producers. New music is being acquired and created at an aggressive rate.

RipTide Music founder Rich Goldman said, “For anyone needing a diverse collection of modern music, Pacifica is a ‘must have’ alongside your current music sources. This catalog is comprised of indie artists and composers whose music has been featured in countless high-end projects. All of the rights to these tracks have been vetted and pre-cleared, and our sales and administrative teams will be providing our clients with the same high level of service that RipTide Music and pigFACTORY have long built their reputations on.”

pigFACTORY CEO Keatly Haldeman said, ”Pacifica Music is a direct answer to the demands of the audio/visual production community. With the collective brain power, musical talent and industry knowledge that pigFACTORY and RipTide bring to the table, we have designed our catalog and web interface to provide an exceptional user experience.”

Bob Kaminsky, EVP, RipTide Music and Pacifica Music, added, “With a very simple and musically intuitive search engine, music supervisors are just a few clicks away from finding great music fast. A section of pre-made play-lists for many common uses called “Scenes and Situations” offers a great place to go when you need a presentation in a hurry.”
