Tracking Your Music in the Digital Age
April 5, 2018 –
This seminar will address the latest technologies and companies that identify music performances worldwide for traditional broadcast, cable and internet streamed film and television production. Composers and music publishers need to be active participants to track performances of their music that generate royalties. If not, they risk losing significant income by remaining passive income recipients. Topics will include how to collect for performances on YouTube that generate ad revenue, the various online applications for identifying your music, including watermarking and audio analysis recognition software, and what to do if you believe you’ve had performances that have not been identified and paid by your performing rights society. If you create or publish music for film and television, this seminar is essential for you.
Moderated by Garry Schyman, SCL Chair – Music Rights Committee

BAFTA-winning composer Garry Schyman is one of the world’s most celebrated voices in video game music as evidenced by his award-winning scores to the BioShock game series, as well as dozens of hit games, films, and television productions. Schyman has most notably given the universe of BioShock (including BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite) its musical identity, scoring the hugely successful game series with a blend of haunting beauty and terrifying unease. He paid playful homage to ’50s sci-fi with his score for the 2005 game Destroy All Humans! (followed by two sequels), accelerated the heartbeat in action games like Resistance: Retribution and Dante’s Inferno, and gave a nod to the hypnotic style of Bernard Herrmann in the mystery game Voyeur. Most recently he’s been in the fantasy world of Tolkien for the adventure game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and its sequel Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Schyman’s film and television credits span every genre, including classic series like The A-Team and Magnum, P.I., stormy action (Tornado!), thrillers (Horseplayer, starring Brad Dourif), and family horror (Spooky House, starring Ben Kingsley).
