Audio Network’s Jason Langley
Audio Network, a production music company based in the UK, is opening its first U.S. office in Los Angeles. The company sees the expansion as a natural progression for its industry changing business model.
With more than 13,000 tracks covering all genres, Audio Network works with creative leaders in the music industry. The company employs 150 composers writing in diverse music styles; they include Grammy Award–winning Dame Evelyn Glennie OBE, Chris Blackwell and Terry Devine-King, alongside internationally acclaimed artists Sir John Dankworth, Ray Davis and Tim Garland. Audio Network’s creative partners collaborate with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Sting, Chick Corea, Goldfrapp and the Kaiser Chiefs.
Audio Network provides its catalog to music users free of the traditional restrictions and complications. A single flat fee buys unlimited access to its entire catalog. Many of the composers are stockholders in the company, which launched in 2001.
“The U.S. is the largest production market in the world, delivering the best quality content for a global, multi-platform audience,” says Jason Langley (pictured), commercial director of the Audio Network Group. “For this reason, high quality music is essential. Much of our music production takes place in Europe, where we can record with the world’s leading musicians and orchestras, whilst still providing our clients with a full buyout license.”
John Switzer, the newly appointed vice president of business development for Audio Network U.S. Inc., says, “I am delighted to be joining a company with the depth and quality of music catalog as Audio Network, and very much look forward to working with the creative industry on their music needs.”
