NY Chapter Pitch Session - Part 1

For our April and May meetings, the AIMP will again offer to our creative members the unique opportunity to craft a song for a few significant artists currently seeking new material.  To the others, it will be an opportunity to learn how the creative side of the business works.  Both sessions will take place at The Living Room in NYC. The April 12th session will run from 5:15 - 6:45 and the May 16th session from 5:30 - 7pm.

At our first meeting on April 12th, writers who wish to submit their work will attend the initial intake meeting to hear music from the artist(s) in question, and receive a creative brief from Richard Stumpf, President, Imagem Music and some of his team.  Additionally, Creatives from publishers will give their insight into the cuts process.  This meeting will be  open to anyone who wishes to attend. Participants  will  then submit songs to  AIMP@Imagem.com no later than May 9th, one week prior to the second meeting to be held on May 16ths.  Richard and his associates will filter the submissions to a top list of songs that would potentially work. The writers of those top  songs  will be  the special guests at the second, follow-up session where the  label A&Rs will critique their submissions. The second session will also be open to others who care to learn  about this process.
