Don’t take it too personally. I just had a Cinematic track in the style I often do rejected. I put a lot of work into it only to receive the copy/paste excuse which is extremely unhelpful. I just recently sold a similar track, similar style and mixing/mastering to a film company with a broadcast license so the rejection was senseless but demoralizing as a composer.
I think AJ needs to make some kind of statement as to what they want and where they are going. It’s not fair to composers to just reject tracks for no reason which is often the case lately. Let’s keep this discussion alive and try and get them to participate!
I understand that they are trying to end the glut of tracks coming in, and yes I hear a lot of rushed work that is all too similar to everything else.
Unfortunately, if you didn’t get in a few years ago and you’re not on the level of Pink Zebra, times ahead at AJ look like they’ll be tough…
