With a catalogue of over 30,000 tracks, Audio Network (audionetwork.com) offers a complete music solution by cutting through the traditionally complex and costly processes of licensing music. All high quality tracks are pre-cleared for multiple formats, for the world, forever.
This approach allows producers to make content for international distribution, emerging platforms and new media without the need to go through the complicated and expensive process of clearing individual tracks or re-versioning productions.
The company supplies music to some major international media clients, including BBC, HBO, MSN, MTV Networks, National Geographic Ogilvy, and Universal Pictures.
Audio Network owns the rights to their extensive catalogue which covers a full range of music styles from classical to hip hop and from country to rock ‘n’ roll. This high quality music is created by its team of established international composers and recorded by major orchestras and artistes including The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Dame Evelyn Glennie OBE and the late Sir John Dankworth CBE.
Releasing up to 8000 new works per year for its main catalogue, the company also supplies more than 50,000 sound effects and a collection of famous classical works from its Borradaile Collection.
In addition to supplying original scoring, audio branding, sound design services and working as creative partners alongside over 200 renowned composers, Audio Network now has interests and operations in multiple territories, worldwide.
