What is Score Revolution?
Very simply, we are an experienced team of film music and music licensing professionals who have curated an unparalleled catalog of film music that is easy to search and license through our online interface. Score Revolution provides you with immediate access to film music from around the world. New scores from independent film producers, production companies, and leading composers are always being added to our platform.
Why Film Music?
Because film music is consistently the most unique, diverse, ingeniously composed, and expertly produced instrumental music available! It has been composed and produced by outstanding artists at the top of their profession with production budgets that are generally higher than that of other instrumental music available for license.
Do I need to register?
Anyone may search and stream our catalog, however you must obtain a verified account to download, license, and utilize some of the advanced functions on the website. Please complete all the information on the registration page and you will be able to sign in once we have verified your details. If you have any immediate licensing needs, our sales team can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and +1.323.790.0524.
How do I search?
The site allows you search our catalog in four different ways - by Keywords, Filter Tools, Explore button, and Upload search. Our Keyword and Filter Tools are powered by each track’s intricate metadata, which includes information on the music genre, film genre, instrumentation, ensemble, tempo, vibe, and whether it's optimal for a trailer. Simply type in a descriptive Keyword to our search bar or launch one of the Filter Tools that are docked at the bottom left-hand corner of our search interface. The more selections you make, the more refined your result pool will be. Please watch our video How to Search for more details.
What is Explore?
Have you found a track you like, but still wish to listen to similar sounding music? Pressing the Explore button will present you with an array of acoustically similar results. The Explore button analyzes the acoustic qualities of the music without reference to the track’s word-based metadata. It’s especially helpful when you are open to using music that could be from a few different genres. Are you searching for trip-hop but open to an Indian raga that shares many of the same acoustic qualities? The Explore button is designed to help you quickly find outside the box search results. Please watch How to Search for more details.
What is Upload?
Upload any “temp” track you’re using to the website, and we’ll instantly analyze its musical qualities and provide you with acoustically similar results from our catalog. The Upload search is powered by the same technology as the Explore button.
Do I always need a license?
Registered users can search, download, and share music to test it in a production context. Once it is intended for any commercial use or public performance (including broadcast, theatrical, or any use in which it is synchronized to visual media) you will need to obtain a license from us. Film music downloaded from the site is to be used by registered users only and is not intended for non-professional or personal use.
What’s the cost of a license?
Our license fees are quoted on a case-by-case basis. There is no rate card, but we’re competitive in the marketplace. The fee is based on the use of the music including media, context, duration, territory and term.
Do you quote on all rights?
In many cases we have the right to license 100% of the master and sync rights to the music. In cases where we don’t, we’ll notify you and contact the other rights holder to arrange a quote and initiate a license.
What about a blanket license?
Currently, we are not making blanket-licensing arrangements. However, if you need a blanket license, please contact us and we may be able to accommodate your individual needs with selected tracks from our catalog.
Can I talk to a person?
