Facebook on a lookout for an in-house Music composer

MUMBAI: The entire month of December has led to extreme curiosity over Facebook’s next move towards music copyright and licensing. Now, as it turns out, the social media giant prepares itself to make another move towards the same and hire an experienced composer to lead the creation of its own music.

In recent months, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg showed signs of heavily investing in the audio-visual experience of the website and issued the need to hire a global head of music licensing. With the position now sorted, Facebook looks forward to hire its first in-house music composer.

Here are a few necessities to apply for the role:

-Minimum 10 years of experience in the music industry
-Experience in ProTools
-Ability to work closely with a wide variety of sounds
-Compose innovative music in multiple styles and drive music-related -projects from inception to completion with little oversight
-Exceptional composition skills and mastery of modern production techniques

Faceboook, currently discussing ways with music rights-holders on the ongoing issue revolving copyright, has initiated an encouraging step towards penetrating into the music front. The website spent most portion of the year dealing with right holders and record labels to settle with an approach that would ensure no copyright infringement of the holders’ clients.

Labels and publishers continue to wait for a deal from Facebook which offers them any financial recompense for use of their music.

Facebook has clearly spent the year in putting things into the place for its future endeavours in the music front. It would be interesting to see how music rights holders and composers perceive and utilise the social media platform for their respective benefits.
