Fee schedule for composition commissions


Explanatory notes

The term ‘duration’ may also be the total of several related pieces or tracks. 3 tracks of 4 minutes would count as 12 minutes. Also, one set of 60 minutes may be requested.

•The term ‘part’ is used for music played by orchestras and ensembles to indicate the strength, in which some musicians may have a unique part and others may double each other. For electronic music, the number of unique ‘tracks’ may be stated.
•If the composition allows a major part for improvisation or some other type of contribution of the musicians, this must be indicated as a percentage of the total work or ‘set’.
•For some composers, the writing of songs and other musical lyrics forms an important part of the creative process. This must be taken into account when determining the degree of complexity.
