Los Angeles, CA, Sept. 14, 2009 â€“ Pacifica Music, a new catalog of modern music, has been launched to supply affordable, high quality music to film studios, television networks, trailer houses, advertising agencies, game companies and corporate producers. Pacifica Music, LLC, is a joint venture between two leading independent licensing and publishing companies, RipTide Music and pigFACTORY. The announcement was made jointly today by Rich Goldman, Founder/RipTide Music, and Keatly Haldeman, CEO, pigFACTORY. (Please see: www.pacificamusic.com )
At launch, Pacifica Music will feature over 6,000 tracks of music across numerous genres, including hip hop, rock, pop, orchestral and electronica, with an additional 4-5,000 new tracks being added every six months. Pacifica Music, which will be deliverable through its innovative websiteâ€™s Search and Download engine, a variety of popular digital asset management systems and on hard drives, offers a collection of
works from a global network of composers, musicians and producers. New music is being acquired and created at an aggressive rate.
The status of parent companies RipTide Music and pigFACTORY give the Pacifica Music catalog instant credibility. These two companies have recently enjoyed success with high profile music placements in films and trailers including â€œInglorious Basterds,â€? â€œDistrict 9,â€? â€œPublic Enemies,â€? â€œThe Ugly Truth,â€? and â€œX-Men Origins: Wolverine,â€? in TV programs â€œEntourage,â€? â€œTrue Blood,â€? â€œMad Men,â€? and â€œ90210,â€? in videogames â€œGuitar Hero 5,â€? â€œTony Hawk: Rideâ€? and â€œMLB 2009,â€? and in commercials for â€œNestle,â€? â€œPlayStation 3â€? and â€œE*TRADE,â€? to name some.
Rich Goldman said, â€œFor anyone needing a diverse collection of modern music, Pacifica is a â€˜must haveâ€™ alongside your current music sources. This catalog is comprised of indie artists and composers whose music has been featured in countless high-end projects. All of the rights to these tracks have been vetted and pre-cleared, and our sales and administrative teams will be providing our clients with the same high level of service that RipTide Music and pigFACTORY have long built their reputations on.â€?
Adds Keatly Haldeman, â€?Pacifica Music is a direct answer to the demands of the audio/visual production community. With the collective brain power, musical talent and industry knowledge that pigFACTORY and RipTide bring to the table, we have designed our catalog and web interface to provide an exceptional user experience.â€?
Bob Kaminsky, EVP, RipTide Music and Pacifica Music, adds, â€œWith a very simple and musically intuitive search engine, music supervisors are just a few clicks away from finding great music fast. A section of pre-made play-lists for many common uses called â€œScenes and Situationsâ€? offers a great place to go when you need a presentation in a hurry.â€?
NOTE: While Pacifica Music, LLC, is a new joint venture between RipTide Music and pigFACTORY, this new venture will not affect the daily operations of either of its parent companies. Pacifica Music has been designed as an independent entity, with client service being fully administered by its own dedicated staff.
