Same Tune, Different Moods
A client recently came to us with an odd request: multiple moods for the same melody (for example, an “upbeat” and “melancholy” version of the same underlying music). I thought this would be a cool experiment for the artist community to try: take a song and create two different versions (optimistic/contemplative, upbeat/slow, light/heavy, etc). Moreover, be sure to differentiate the moods in your titles (“I Love You” – Light Version, “I Love You” – Heavy Version)
- KEYWORD CODE: TUNEMOODSAUG20
- SUGGESTED KEYWORDS: Describing the mood
Take advantage of the 50-keyword limit and add both broad and specific keywords. On the other hand, do not use recognizable band or artist names, please!
We also encourage you to submit separate :15 and :30 versions of these tracks for social-media use.
Moreover, please note you can apply tags to existing tracks in your portfolio.Looking for additional inspiration? Check out more briefs!
