Musical composition can refer to an original piece of music, either a song or an instrumental music piece, the structure of a musical piece, or the process of creating or writing a new song or piece of music. The word "song" is widely misused by people in the popular music industry to describe any musical composition, whether sung or played only by instruments. People who create new compositions are called composers in classical music. In popular music and traditional music, the creators of new songs are usually called songwriters; with songs, the person who writes new words for a song is the lyricist.

This could come in the form of a daily/weekly/monthly rate and paid in cash or added to their paychecks. However it’s handled, it needs to be noted in this section of the deal memo template.

Composer Agreement Style 35

As discussed in "A Simple Guide to Signing the Best Sync Deal Possible" in this series, a cue sheet is a log of all the music used in a production. (See http://www.bmi.com/creators/detail/what_is_a_cue_sheet, for an example.) Cue sheets are the primary means by which performing rights organizations track the use of music in films and TV. Activate: Used to describe the action that results in the creation of a license file. In most cases this involves using an activation code on the web to generate a license however in other cases such as when evaluating CCS or using a code size limited verison of CCS you can activate and create a license directly inside CCS. Every once in a while, some clever people come up with a solution to an issue that the DAW developers simply have not addressed.
