Questions regarding budgets, etc. for new music
Date: May 20, 2011
As an "emerging composer" of secular, all a cappella choral music (perhaps best characterized as modern folk songs), I am interested in learning much more about the potential market(s) for these compositions. So, a few questions for all of you:
1. What is your typical yearly budget for new music, and has the current economic recession had a large negative impact?
2. What are the primary ways in which you learn about new music from contemporary composers?
3. What are the best ways for a composer to inform you about new works?
4. Are new works that are offered for free of any interest, or do you associate "free" with "not very good"?
Any additional information or advice that any of you could share here in this forum about this would be greatly appreciated by me, and probably by many other composers who visit this website, as well.
Thank you very much!
