Marmoset is a boutique music agency with a web-based radio application that helps filmmakers and advertising executives find and license music for their projects. In addition to offering music from its roster of independent artists, Marmoset also scores original music and negotiates music clearances for more mainstream songs.
Use Marmoset’s web-based application to find the perfect music for your upcoming film project. Whether you’re making a commercial, a documentary, or even just a photo slideshow, you can browse Marmoset’s selection of music and narrow down the options by entering a bit of information about your project into the application. For example, tell Marmoset whether your story is angelic, bouncy, or bright, and pick the arc, length, vocals, and instruments that you’re hoping to hear. Marmoset will provide you with a list of options, which you can listen to immediately from within your browser. When you find a song that seems like the perfect fit, click on the shopping cart icon for a list of available licenses and prices. If none of the listed licensing options fits the scope of your project, then click the “Custom License” button and Marmoset will create something to fit your needs.
If you’re hesitant to pull the trigger, and would prefer to do a little more research before purchasing a license for one or more tracks, then you can download low resolution MP3s as scratch tracks before making a final decision. You can also create mixtapes through Marmoset’s web-based application, which are easy to save and share with others.
