Jason Donnelly (aka DJ Puzzle) recently released Smoldering Scores: Cinematic Electronica, via Sony Creative Software (link http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/smolderingscores) a collection of a dozen construction kits producers can use instantly to create music. Whether they are into break beat, industrial or progressive all the critical components are there to create music.
If you don’t understand what these kits are? They are loops. A music loop is a performance that repeats. It can be a single instrument (Snare, Bass line, etc) or it can be mixed instruments.
Donnelly’s company, Music Design By Jason Inc., makes loop packs via their Soundtrack Loops division, runs a digital label, works developing artists and, on occasion, DJs under the moniker DJ Puzzle (he does this less than he would like these days). The company is based in Los Angeles, the new home of Illinois-born Donnelly.
Soundtrack Loops is a multi-faceted music production house. The team composes original music, perform sound design and compose music loops like Smoldering Scores: Cinematic Electronica. These products can be (and are) used in video games, on television shows, licensed to stock audio services, licensed for Youtube videos or licensed to software companies.
Donnelly has been creating loops for over 16 years. “I currently have I think 10 composers/producers working for me at the moment. Each one has their own expertise. For example one of my composers has an amazing natural gift to compose and orchestrate cinematic orchestral pieces while another composer has his finger on the of the latest "EDM" (Electronic Dance Music) sound,” says Donnelly. “We have almost every instrument and genre covered with the exception of Country lol. I have an awesome Jazz player who specializes in Latin Jazz. I mean we pretty much have it all covered and if a project requires instrumentation for a genre that we don't have access to I'll simply find someone, typically a session player, and hire them under a work for hire contract.”
Donnelly himself writes more electronic music including; Hip Hop, Break Beat, Drum n Bass, Dubstep, Chill Out, House, Trance, Glitch, and Ambient.
“Switching gears is often as simple as picking up a different instrument like an electric bass guitar for example. You see I have something very rare going here in regards to creative freedom,” says Donnelly. “Most of my clients at the moment give me 100% control over creative direction which is nice because it allows me to switch gears and explore other genres whenever I get the feeling to do so.”
Donnelly is available as a source for articles relating to loops, music business and music licensing. He is happy to talk to journalists about this part of the music business as background as well.
