  • Out Take - Tom Holkenborg AKA Junkie XL
    guitars and soundscapes and I got approached by different bands I ve always been a guy who does pretty much everything Tom Holkenborg found himself on the path to film scoring by happenstance It started in the 90s when I saw a film that used a license of one of my albums I was really intrigued and wanted to know more about it he says I was introduced to the Matrix movies and the music really sparked my enthusiasm for it By late 2002 Holkenborg decided to move to L A Once there he made a wise move instead of announcing his arrival as a film composer he took assistant jobs and learned the politics and dynamics of the industry The switch to film scoring was a difficult one but welcomed As a DJ and producer Holkenborg found dance records to be limiting and at certain points suffocating That has changed with film scoring His Mad Max score incorporates a range of textures using almost 200 instruments Most recently Holkenborg scored Deadpool and has worked with Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer on the score for Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice The best way to see if you have it in you is to find an assistant job with a composer you admire or who has an opening and run that route a few years to see if you re up for it Holkenborg says That seems to be a more successful way than to do it on your own Most recent Deadpool Web Junkiexl com Tags Black Mass Deadpool Mad Max Fury Road Tom Holkenborg Previous Story Music Gear Review Fix Flanger Doubler Plug In Bundle Next Story Drum Clinic at Sam Ash with Seraphine 0 Shares Jessica Pace Related articles The Great Gatsby Soundtrack Boasts All Star Lineup

  • Jimmy Page on Band Chemistry, Future Plans and "Stairway to Heaven" - Music Connection Magazine
    amusing to put that photo in It s my start in music you know It s like the earliest image and I thought Yeah that s got to go in MC So with the Zeppelin reissues and the book has it felt like having your life flash before your eyes during the past couple of years Page Well it s sort of multi tasking isn t it laughs In a way it is isn t it Certainly with the book it starts off there when I was about 12 or 13 but it goes through to like 70 so you definitely see your life sort of flashing by and you see the decades flashing by But it s alright You see yourself growing up really MC So what was in that young Jimmy Page s mind back then when you were just starting out Page Y know I see these early photographs of The Beatles and George Harrison has got his first guitar which was my first electric guitar He s up north and I m down in the south so there must ve been a few of them around but not too many And there I am probably doing what they were doing up there which is try to emulate the music I heard coming from America in some shape or form and thinking I was Cliff Gallup or some of the early ones in rock roll or rockabilly if you like in the modes of what Elvis Presley was doing and inspiring so many people Buddy Holly Gene Vincent all of them And then accessing the blues and wanting just as much to be B B King as much as James Burton It was the growth of this voracious appetite I had for all things six strings really I can see how it manifests across the board MC That s an experience you almost can t have anymore with so much information saturation and not quite as much musical invention Page What s interesting about my musical history is I was there in the early days when rock roll hit England and people were seduced by it and intoxicated by it and then they took that music off the airwaves But it was too late everyone was captivated by it I saw that changing style and what was going on in London outside of London in the south what was going on before The Beatles explosion and all that I mean I was THERE you know I know exactly how things came to be about how the blues injection came on board with us with that blues movement from Chicago all of it I call that really fascinating and we haven t even started We re just talking about something that s pre Beatles do you know what I mean MC What was the process of exploring all of those styles to coming up with your own Page Because I had such eclectic tastes as a teenager I

  • Annual Feature - Today's Prominent Guitarists and Bassists
    kid Not only was Tom Morello a fantastic guitar player technically but the way he used effects and manipulated the sound of the guitar was very interesting to me As I got older there was the band Phoenix That s where a lot of the compressed single note lines come from When we were touring recently we had been listening to a lot of Bowie and INXS and that s where a lot of the choppy chords stuff comes from What s your top gear For amplifiers I m using two Hi Watt Custom 50 s which run in stereo along with a Roland Jazz Chorus to add some brightness The Hi Watts are quite nice but they re a little warm sounding With guitars I tend to use Fender Jazzmaster and Jaguars I m using a MusicMan guitar on this new album because it s got a great out of phase sound For strings Ernie Ball 11 s on everything I think they have a better sustain than 10 s How do you achieve your diverse tonal palette There are a lot of things that make up my effects rack But if I had to go with a core setup it would be my King of Tone overdrive distortion pedal and my Mobius Timeline and Big Sky reverb chorus and delay How have you become better at your craft I ve always been fairly competent as a player I think it s important to not become too complacent You might be playing something right or in time but you can always play with a better feel you know Read More PHOTOS The 1975 at Club Nokia Do you have a practice regimen or pre show warmup I always try to play the guitar for a half hour 45 minutes before we go on There s one thing that I do which is like an awkward shaped arpeggio I play down the arpeggio once and slide up one fret and keep doing that up and down the fret board And that s a good dexterity exercise Memorable stage mishaps In the early days we played on the side of a flatbed truck at a charity Fun Run People were finishing this marathon or something and walking right past us to get in their cars and go home Live performance highlights There s a few Two that come to mind straightaway there is an old prestigious venue called The Royal Albert Hall in London Two years ago we played an amazing one off show there It s about a 4 000 seat venue and the people there were genuinely appreciative The atmosphere and feeling was very special And the second one was playing Glastonbury in 2014 We played on the main stage and the entire festival watched our show It was an amazing experience 1 2 3 4 5 Tags Adam Hann August Burns Red bassists guitarists J B Brubaker J D Simo Jennifer Young music industry Rick Derringer The 1975

  • Music Industry Advice - Don't Sign that Contract
    and settlement agreement where the terminating party might be subject to a penalty or payment to get out of the deal 2 Renegotiation If you still want to work with the other party but under changed circumstances another option is seeing if the other party is open to renegotiating some terms of the contract In reality a renegotiation in this situation should only be to correct or improve the current problems not to try to get better terms just because you want more than to what you previously agreed Your relationship with the other party and status in the industry both greatly affect a potential renegotiation If you are a new artist without a proven track record or previously established track record you are really at the mercy of the company as to whether they will agree to a renegotiation Having greater leverage and or a good relationship with the company will greatly help you here 3 Litigation If you ve tried both of the above options and neither have worked you may want to consider litigation i e suing the other party to get out of the contract Although you may be prepared to or actually file a lawsuit many of these matters do settle out of court usually saving you a lot of time and expense Once again this scenario will probably be subject to a termination and settlement agreement and may come with penalties However this is sometimes much easier and faster than litigation which can be lengthy and very expensive If you decide to pursue the litigation route you should make an informed decision based on the time and expense involved Further while some attorneys will take a case on contingency meaning that they only get paid if they win your case and get a percentage of your recovery from the case most attorneys do not and will require an hourly rate and an upfront retainer Be respectful of the attorney s policies and don t try to persuade him or her to take the case The moral of the story is to always have an attorney review a contract before you sign it and carefully consider your attorney s music industry advice The ultimate decision whether to sign is yours but it is much more difficult to change or terminate a contract after signature than negotiate or walk away from a deal before it is signed Don t sign any deal just because you are excited to have been offered one Careful consideration of whether this is the right deal for you may save you a lot of future grief Disclaimer The content contained in this article is not legal music industry advice and does not constitute or create an attorney client relationship between Erin M Jacobson Esq and you You should not rely on act or fail to act upon this information without seeking the professional counsel of an attorney licensed in your state If this article is considered an advertisement it is general

  • Serious About Your Music Career? Treat it Like a Business
    one part time assistant then adding an intern and finally forming a full service team made up of interns a mentorship program part timers and consultants who are all I might add budding songwriters I am proud of this talented group of amazing people that have been with me as I built my business from the ground up giving me support in structuring my company In turn I am able to guide and develop the talents of the people on my team 3 Become a leader Decide what the word leader means to you and then live and lead by example My definition of a good leader is someone who says to their team How do I help you do your job better Throughout the years I have worked with great leaders however I certainly had a few who did not share their visions effectively with the rest of the team and it became increasingly difficult to follow them as a leader since we had no idea where they were going Now as the leader of my own company I have a team in place that adheres to my vision and mission statement and we all have a clear picture of where we are going I hold weekly meetings with my staff allowing the time and space necessary to exchange the ideas and information that will help us all to form a unified front and do each of our jobs better I also am very aware that my leading style can differ depending on whether I am working one on one with a writer or guiding a big group My whole career has been focused on leading songwriters in their careers and one way I do this is by challenging them to push beyond their comfort zones In the late 90s I produced a writers camp seven years in a row taking 12 writers from all over the world and with various musical backgrounds away for a week to write under different circumstances and with different co writers I purposely looked for ways to take them away from their everyday routines With the help of one head of production one assistant and a studio engineer I chose five houses grouped close together in Lake Arrowhead CA organized travel stocked all of the houses with food and prepared nightly dinners at the house where I was staying which we dubbed the Grand Hall Each day I combined three different writers who then had the day to write and create a simple demo of a song I would go from house to house critiquing and guiding them along the way At dinnertime I would put questions to the group to encourage discussion one night for example I would ask them which performing rights society they preferred and you should have seen the room light up when they gave their responses After dinner they would all sit around the fire and sing and tell stories to each other which was always my favorite
