New Website brings together 'Elite' composers
LOS ANGELES – The new Hollywood Elite Composers project invites A-List composers to keep 100 percent ownership of their copyright and join a powerful select brand. This online platform allows for obtaining and licensing original television and film scores and songs for independent and large studio projects. 

Only award-winning and prolific composers are invited to contact Hollywood Elite Composers. Once accepted, their music is uploaded to a client-friendly Web platform. Using a keyword search engine and algorithmic analysis technology, clients can easily find their favorite composer’s unused music, which is now available for licensing. 

Submissions for “Phase One” of the library began on February 1, and is continuing through the end of March. A few of the founding composers include Harry Gregson-Williams (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia), George Fenton (Hitch, Gandhi, Groundhog Day), Rachel Portman (Chocolat, The Cider House Rules, Emma), Anne Dudley (American History X, The Full Monty, Tristan and Isolde), and Brad Fiedel (The Terminator Terminator 2, True Lies). The Website aims to selectively add over 50 additional artists by the Spring.

Hélène Muddiman is the conceptual founder of the platform and is a film composer herself, who recognized a need for such a search engine. “Almost every composer I’ve encountered has several pieces in their back pockets that are usually some of their most proud works. I’m thrilled that Hollywood Elite Composers finally gives the chance for this music to see the light of day, while still letting artists maintain 100 percent ownership and control of their work.“
