    Default Securing rights to make an arrangement...

    I'm sure someone can help me with this. I have no idea how to secure rights for making an arrangement of a song or piece.

    Who would I contact to find out if an artist/composer would let me arrange his/her music?

    Thanks,
    Gamma

    You need to find out who the owning publisher/s are and contact them directly. For a remix or arrangement you will likely need a mechanical license. FIrst start by searching the repertoire listings through BMI, ASCAP and SESAC.

    www.bmi.com
    www.ascap.com
    www.sesac.com

    When you find the song you want to do an arrangement of the record will have a work ID # as well as contact information for the publisher. Contact them directly with details about what you're trying to do and how you're going to use it. They can at that time decide to provide you licensing or not. If they do, expect stipulations.

    This is over-simplified of course and if licensing is granted there will be written documentation and contracts etc.
