An Essential Resource
A composer friend of mine told me that SkillPages was an essential website for me and I have to say I agree with him. I’ve been a member only a few weeks and I have already been contacted by a lot of people!
I’m a music producer and a professional DJ working in the music industry for over 20 years. In that time I have created a recording studio at home where I produce my own material under the label Discomilk. I now have 4 albums produced and my next project is a soulful, funk album. The project features many different instruments and production techniques, which meant I was on the look out for a variety of new people to collaborate with.
A Great Response
I was looking for specific musicians, singers and re-mixers so I posted an opportunity on SkillPages detailing the type of skills I needed. This meant that I didn’t even have to search, they notified people with skills suitable to what I needed. The response was great – I could hardly find the time to answer all the replies I got! There really is a large number of highly skilled people waiting to be engaged. I am already in the process of negotiating agreements with some great musicians that I found on SkillPages.
As well as producing the album I have other ongoing productions so it’s great to have many valuable collaborators to constantly refer to for my professional requirements. And it isn’t just good for finding musicians – the next step is to connect with a music video director, a digital animator and a graphic designer for LP and CD covers. SkillPages is just the right place to find all the professionals I need.
