Looking for a transcriptionist that has great experience with Finale... writing jazz charts, and mainly Latin Music. I've written a ton of arrangements, here are some examples of stuff I've written : https://www.dropbox.com/s/tkgzcii54r22yb7/077.%20Eye%20Of%20The%20Hurricane%20-%20Piano.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/hd2rf2113txz1r9/145.%20Blame%20it%20on%20the%20Boogie%20-%20Percussion.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/d91bqpdiqrohrd4/070.%20Por%20Encima%20-%20Trumpet%20in%20Bb%20%283%20Horns%29.pdf?dl=0 I didn't put a score a full arrangement, because of confidential reasons, but so you can see more or less how I work. I'm very meticulous, and very experienced in arranging and transcribing. I am getting way too much work, so I'm looking to hire another arranger, so I can subcontract for transcriptions... give you songs to transcribe from scratch. You have to know about Clave, 3-2 / 2-3 , salsa, mainly salsa, because we do a lot of this. Or if you don't know about this, at-least be really good to transcribe harmony and horns, and then i can do the percussion parts if needed. Just let me know what you're good at, what your experience is... we mostly arrange for 5 horns , rhythm section, very little strings stuff (but sometimes yes). Let me know everything you can about your background and all... and then we'll go from there. I'm looking for someone that could do a transcription of this from scratch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6GImKWkKpI I gave you the piano part above, i wrote that arrangement for my latest album. That's my band performing it in the studio :) I have a big project to do right now, lots of transcriptions needed! :)

Hi. I am looking for a composer/musician to create a short (5-10 seconds) intro to a podcast I’m launching that will reinforce a sophisticated and modern brand, for a fast-paced company. I am looking for a piece with energy and momentum that mixes modern and classical elements. I would like to start the process off by having a conversation either over this weekend or Monday/ Tuesday (Feb 8 or 9th) to discuss the podcast and how the music will compliment the overall theme of the podcast. I have samples of music I would like you to draw inspiration from as you begin creating music. I look forward to hearing from you.

I need editing to be done to songs. Instead of songs just transitioning into each other, I need more of "mash up" of songs. I'll give you a bunch of example of videos that you can watch and listen to in order to get some sort of idea of what I'm talking about. You can just think of it as a song with beats we can choreograph something to.

BANJOS! JUGBAND! A good ol' country hoedown! All in an 8 seconds! Bucky’s Action Figure Theater requires an 8 second musical introduction to their video productions. The specific style that is required is that of a jug band musical introduction. A demo of the video introduction is posted on the Bucky’s Action Figure Theater’s YouTube Channel titled “8 Second Intro Demo for Upwork”. A copy of the link is below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjJCsy3AA4kkgTl4V3I_U5A Hee Haw’s introduction, the old television show, is the inspiration for what we are looking for. An example of this musical style is in the Favorites section of the YouTube Channel. Added, we do not want the extra sound effects (donkey braying or the eye movement). We just need the music. Format has to be MP3. Job has to be completed by 2/7/16. Access to demos of your work (website, YouTube channel, other means) is preferred. Bucky’s Action Figure Theater is a fledgling production company that specifically makes short films and stop motion animations in 1/18th scale using, of course, action figures!

Want to advertise your music? I'm looking for a someone who will allow me to use their compositions as a background for my photo slideshow to be made into a dvd. It's going to be the 4th issue of my video journal, accepting submissions from poets to provide short form poetry to my photos. I'll be creating this for selling purposes. Since it's a very small community, I don't even think I will be making a lot of money. I can only afford $6 per composition. 10 percent goes to odesk.com. I need at least 2 music pieces. If you are willing to get exposure with minimal pay, please let me know. I will give you prominent credit on my website and in the dvd. Check out http://framelesssky.weebly.com to watch the sneak previews of the previous issues. Give me the link to you website or blog so I can check out your music.
