"Your music never
sounds like some of the cheesy production music I have
investigated and rejected." Julie Dean Audio Guide Productions Ltd
"We have had 4 CD's from you
for our films and compared to other suppliers you are
the best. No doubt, we will be buying more music tracks
from your company." C R Krishnan
"It was incredibly simple to find the music I had in mind for my production, just a few clicks and what I found more than matched my expectations. The quality and range of tracks AKM offer is very impressive, and my production now packs more of an emotional punch thanks to AKM." John Cockshaw

fees and covers your lifetime.
Some of our composers are PRS [ Performing Rights Society ] members which means when a programme using their music from our library is broadcast on TV/ Radio they should receive a payment from PRS after the transmission of the programme. PRS collect money on behalf of composers from broadcasters to cover the performance of music on their channels. As a producer of a programme it is important to understand that you will not be paying any further fees as it is the responsibility of the broadcaster to pay these fees to PRS. We have granted you the dubbing rights covered by the price of the CD and so the only thing we ask is that if your programme is broadcast please send the broadcaster the following details to ensure the right composers receive the correct royalty:
1. The track title of the music
2. The composer's name : this can be found on our cds
3. The duration of music used

of which can be downloaded

with your programme.
