Music is a big part  of civilization. Centuries had
passed but music survived and even grew to greater
download atif aslam songs heights every single decade. As a matter of fact, the
demand of music has been rising very steadily in the
past 10 years and it will continue that way in the
foreseeable future. It comes along with the big amount
of revenue the music industry is currently getting year
after year. It is an unstoppable force as people always
look up for the next great artist around the corner,
thus continuing the cycle and the relevance of music.
The demand of music content is at an all time high. The
global music revenue since the turn of the century has
been steady. The currency is measured in billions.

As the technology grew, music got more technical,
complex and in demand. Others take credit for using
music they don't own. Nowadays, independent musicians
are well aware of protecting their work for legal
purposes. Through music licensing, you can be ensured
of your asset/work being protected legally.

What is music licensing? Music licensing is the
licensed used for copyrighted music. This allows the
owner of the music to maintain the copyright of their
original work. It also ensures the owner of the musical
work to be compensated if their music is being used by
others. The music licensing companies has limited
rights to use the work without separate agreements. In
music licensing, you could get your work licensed in
the form of music, composition and songwriting.

During the music licensing process, there are terms
that would be discussed by the groups involved. If you
are an independent musician, you would be the licensor.
You are the one responsible of the music created, thus
you are the copyright owner of the licensed work. A
licensee would be the music licensing company as they
would be the one who will distribute your work to other
industries. They will also collect the royalty fees as
distribute them back to you if your music is included
in live performances, TV shows, ads, campaigns, video
games, etc.

There are also two kinds of contracts in music
licensing, namely exclusive contract and non-exclusive
contract. Exclusive contract means having your work
licensed exclusively to a single music licensing
company. Only a single company has the authority to
distribute and market your work. If you signed an
exclusive contract to your song or album, you cannot
use the same music contents and get it signed by other
music licensing companies. The agreement is exclusive
and confidential to the licensor and the licensee.

Non-exclusive contract allows a second party to
distribute your work and it doesn't prohibit the
licensor to sell their music to other music licensing
companies or licensees. An independent musician can
sign a non-exclusive contract to multiple companies
using the same music content. Non-exclusive contracts
are generally used to prevent an individual from being
locked into a restrictive contract before their work
gains popularity. This type of contract is designed to
protect music artists from being taken advantage of in
the early stages of their respective careers while on
the process of getting their music out to larger

There are also cases which involves direct payment for
used music content. This is called Sync Fees. Sync fee
is a license granted by a holder of a copyrighted music
to allow a licensee to synchronize music with visual
media such as ads, films, TV shows, movie trailers,
video games, etc. For example, a video producer is in
dire need of music content for a certain project and is
in a limited time of finding one.

In these cases, the artist and the music licensing
company will be contacted directly for the possible use
of the original work and negotiate the upfront payment
involved. Sync fees can range from a few dollars to a
couple of hundred dollars or up to thousands. The
payment usually depends on how big and established a
company is. If it is a well known company, there is a
probability that the sync fee will spike up in value.

We need to understand that businesses nowadays are
paying premium for music at an all time high. The
influx and revenue generated on different industries
are worth billions of dollars and the music artists who
got their music licensed will get a big share of that
money. The content of music is very important. Every
single company need visual and audio content. You can't
do ads, shows and movies without having any music

Music licensing brings compensation for assets used.
This is called royalty fees. A royalty fee is the
payment collected by one party from another for the
ongoing use of a copyrighted asset. You can get
compensated if your work is featured on live public
performances. For every live use of your music, you get
compensated as you own the copyright of your work.

The American Society of Composers, Authors and
Publishers (ASCAP) has collected over $941 million
dollars in licensing fees and distributed $827.7
million dollars in royalties to its members back in
2014. BMI on the other hand, collected more than $1.013
billion dollars in license fees and distributed over
$877 million dollars in royalties to its members during
the year 2015.

Music licensing is the modern way of earning through
music. In the past few years, the physical sales had
gone down. Streaming music has taken over because it's
more convenient and practical with the help of the
World Wide Web. With the rise of streaming sales, the
figures that could be collected as royalty fees could
spike up in the years coming. In fact, as stated in an
Australian financial review website, streaming
generated $2.5 billion dollars in US music sales last
year, overtaking digital downloads as the industry's
biggest source of music revenue. As stated in the
picture below, the global streaming of music is
projected to reach greater heights in terms of revenue
in the upcoming years.

The internet contributed greatly for the rise of music
licensing and streaming. 20 years ago, the distribution
of music hasn't been exactly this big. Television shows
and filmmakers are the top two industries that need
music content. Today, there are more and more TV shows,
films, commercials, movies, ads and tons of video games
that need music content. It is safe to say that the
internet opened the public eye about the opportunities
involved behind it.

One of the most visited sites on earth is YouTube.
People use, duplicate, rework, copy, revise and perform
music from different artists around the world. It also
has an influx of ads which contains music content. To
track all these data, YouTube has a Content ID System.
If your music is licensed, you can contact this site
and they will take a look at their data and see if your
work is being used by other parties. As the licensor,
you have the authority to take actions such as mute the
audio which matches your music, block a whole video
from being viewed, track the video's viewership
statistics or monetize the video by running ads against
it. Every country has different rules about it. But
YouTube runs a lot of ads and monetizing work from this
site is very probable.

If you are an independent musician, you must improve
and instill professionalism in your craft to get your
chances up of being signed by a music licensing
company. With billions of dollars of revenue involved
today, you want at least a slice of the pie. Monetizing
your passion is never easy but taking the necessary
steps to make it work is a must to reach success.

The Complete Definition Of The Music

Music Portal 

Music is a form of art that involves organized and
audible sounds and silence. It is normally expressed in
terms of pitch (which includes melody and harmony),
rhythm (which includes tempo and meter), and the
quality of sound (which includes timbre, articulation,
dynamics, and texture). Music may also involve complex
generative forms in time through the construction of
patterns and combinations of natural stimuli,
principally sound. Music may be aatif aslams songs used for artistic or
aesthetic, communicative, entertainment, or ceremonial
purposes. The definition of what constitutes music
varies according to culture and social context.

If painting can be viewed as a visual art form, music
can be viewed as an auditory art form.

[edit] Definition as seen by

Main article: Definition of music

See also: Music genre

The broadest definition of music is organized sound.
There are observable patterns to what is broadly
labeled music, and while there are understandable
cultural variations, the properties of music are the
properties of sound as perceived and processed by
humans and animals (birds and insects also make music).

Music is formulated or organized sound. Although it
cannot contain emotions, it is sometimes designed to
manipulate and transform the emotion of the
listener/listeners. Music created for movies is a good
example of its use to manipulate emotions.

Greek philosophers and medieval theorists defined music
as tones ordered horizontally as melodies, and
vertically as harmonies. Music theory, within this
realm, is studied with the pre-supposition that music
is orderly and often pleasant to hear. However, in the
20th century, composers challenged the notion that
music had to be pleasant by creating music that
explored harsher, darker timbres. The existence of some
modern-day genres such as grindcore and noise music,
which enjoy an extensive underground following,
indicate that even the crudest noises can be considered
music if the listener is so inclined.

20th century composer John Cage disagreed with the
notion that music must consist of pleasant, discernible
melodies, and he challenged the notion that it can
communicate anything. Instead, he argued that any
sounds we can hear can be music, saying, for example,
"There is no noise, only sound,"[3]. According to
musicologist Jean-Jacques Nattiez (1990 p.47-8,55):
"The border between music and noise is always
culturally defined--which implies that, even within a
single society, this border does not always pass
through the same place; in short, there is rarely a
consensus.... By all accounts there is no single and
intercultural universal concept defining what music
might be."

Johann Wolfgang Goethe believed that patterns and forms
were the basis of music; he stated that "architecture
is frozen music."

The history of music predates the written word and is
tied to the development of each unique human culture.
Although the earliest records of musical expression are
to be found in the Sama Veda of India and in 4,000 year
old cuneiform from Ur, most of our written records and
studies deal with the history of music in Western
civilization. This includes musical periods such as
medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic,
and 20th century era music. The history of music in
other cultures has also been documented to some degree,
and the knowledge of "world music" (or the field of
"ethnomusicology") has become more and more sought
after in academic circles. This includes the documented
classical traditions of Asian countries outside the
influence of western Europe, as well as the folk or
indigenous music of various other cultures. (The term
world music has been applied to a wide range of music
made outside of Europe and European influence, although
its initial application, in the context of the World
Music Program at Wesleyan University, was as a term
including all possible music genres, including European
traditions. In academic circles, the original term for
the study of world music, "comparative musicology", was
replaced in the middle of the twentieth century by
"ethnomusicology", which is still considered an
unsatisfactory coinage by some.)

Popular styles of music varied widely from culture to
culture, and from period to period. Different cultures
emphasised different instruments, or techniques, or
uses for music. Music has been used not only for
entertainment, for ceremonies, and for practical &
artistic communication, but also extensively for

As world cultures have come into greater contact, their
indigenous musical styles have often merged into new
styles. For example, the United States bluegrass style
contains elements from Anglo-Irish, Scottish, Irish,
German and some African-American instrumental and vocal
traditions, which were able to fuse in the US' multi-
ethnic "melting pot" society.

There is a host of music classifications, many of which
are caught up in the argument over the definition of
music. Among the largest of these is the division
between classical music (or "art" music), and popular
music (or commercial music - including rock and roll,
country music, and pop music). Some genres don't fit
neatly into one of these "big two" classifications,
(such as folk music, world music, or jazz music).

Genres of music are determined as much by tradition and
presentation as by the actual music. While most
classical music is acoustic and meant to be performed
by individuals or groups, many works described as
"classical" include samples or tape, or are mechanical.
Some works, like Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, are
claimed by both jazz and classical music. Many current
music festivals celebrate a particular musical genre.

Recently a Christie's art sale became the highest 

auction in history. The sale included works by Jackson
Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean-Michel Basquiat,
among others best of atif aslm mp3 and in total generated $495 million. The
sale established 16 new world auction records, with
nine works selling for more than $10m (£6.6m) and 23
for more than $5m (£3.2m). Christie's said the record
breaking sales reflected "a new era in the art market".

The top lot of Wednesday's sale was Pollock's drip
painting Number 19, 1948, which fetched $58.4m (£38.3m)
- nearly twice its pre-sale estimate.

Lichtenstein's Woman with Flowered Hat sold for $56.1
million, while another Basquiat work, Dustheads (top of
article), went for $48.8 million.

All three works set the highest prices ever fetched for
the artists at auction. Christie's described the
$495,021,500 total - which included commissions - as
"staggering". Only four of the 70 lots on offer went

In addition, a 1968 oil painting by Gerhard Richter has
set a new record for the highest auction price achieved
by a living artist. Richter's photo-painting Domplatz,
Mailand (Cathedral Square, Milan) sold for $37.1
million (£24.4 million). Sotheby's described Domplatz,
Mailand, which depicts a cityscape painted in a style
that suggests a blurred photograph, as a "masterpiece
of 20th Century art" and the "epitome" of the artist's
1960s photo-painting canon. Don Bryant, founder of Napa
Valley's Bryant Family Vineyard and the painting's new
owner, said the work "just knocks me over".

Brett Gorvy, head of post-war and contemporary art,
said "The remarkable bidding and record prices set
reflect a new era in the art market," he said. Steven
Murphy, CEO of Christie's International, said new
collectors were helping drive the boom.

Myths of the Music-Fine Art Price Differential

When I came across this article I was stunned at the
prices these artworks were able to obtain. Several of
them would hardly evoke a positive emotional response
in me, while others might only slightly, but for almost
all of them I really don't understand how their prices
are reflected in the work, and vice versa. Obviously,
these pieces were not intended for people like me, an
artist, while wealthy patrons certainly see their
intrinsic artistic value clearly.

So why doesn't music attract these kinds of prices? Is
it even possible for a piece of recorded music, not
music memorabilia or a music artifact (such as a rare
record, LP, bootleg, T-shirt, album artwork, etc.), to
be worth $1 million or more? Are all musicians and
music composers doomed to struggle in the music
industry and claw their way up into a career in music?
If one painting can be valued at $1 million, why can't
a song or piece of music also be valued similarly?
Apparently, the $.99 per download price is the highest
price a song is able to command at market value, no
matter what its quality or content, and the musician or
composer must accept this value as such.

The financial equation looks something like this:

1 painting = $37 million

1 song = $.99

Sometimes people say that a song can change the world,
but no one ever says that about paintings. So
theoretically, if people want change $.99 is the price
we must pay for it.

Now here are a few statements that should help us
clarify what the monetary or value discrepancy between
painting and music is based upon.

(1) There are fewer painters than there are musicians.

(2) Musicians are less talented than painters?

(3) It is easier to create music than it is to paint.

(4) The public values paintings more than music.

(5) Paintings are more beautiful than music.

(6) Paintings are impossible to copy unlike music.

(7) Painters work harder than musicians and composers.

(8) Blah, blah, blah.

Hardly anyone agrees with all of these statements and
yet all, or at least some of them, would have to be
true in order for the price of paintings to so greatly
exceed the cost of music. Moreover, I doubt that art
collectors and great painters have to deal with as much
legal red tape as do musicians when releasing their
work into the public domain, so why aren't the rewards
equal, if not greater for musicians who have to work
almost as much protecting their work as in producing
it. Musicians and composers, however, actually must do
more than authenticate their work and obtain accurate
appraisals concerning what their work is worth, but
they get paid less. The equipment costs alone for
musicians is much higher than it is for painters.

Maybe it's fame, and not money, musicians are after?
That would explain why most musicians settle for the
low pay they receive from record deals and digital
downloads. Perhaps, that's also why many of them are
touring more often to increase their fame and not their
fortunes. But wait a minute, that's where musicians
actually make most of their money from live
performances and the selling of merchandise, but not
the music. I guess this is why many musicians see
themselves not as composers, but rather as performers
and entertainers.

So what can musicians do, who don't see themselves as
entertainers, but instead as composers who create music
as a fine art? Because they too have a strong desire to
earn a living to support themselves in their chosen
profession, thus there must be a specialized approach
whereby they present their work to music lovers or art
collectors in search of assets and curators for unique
pieces to place in their private galleries. Imagine
that, a recorded piece of music that few have ever
heard which is displayed and played only on a specified
music player in a private art gallery or collection.

In thinking about how a musician can follow the example
set by painters in the fine arts, I've isolated 4
principles that should help to make the spectacular
financial rewards they've reached possible for the
musician. So let's analyze some of the characteristics
that govern the market for fine art and see how
musicians can apply these concepts to their creative,
production, and marketing processes.

The Ideal Vehicle for Music as Fine Art

Here are 4 principles and practical suggestions for
musicians who want to elevate their music into the
realm of fine art by following the example of the
painters of the past and present.
