Posted by:  Versaly Entertainment


This gig is not currently accepting applications. We think you might like these similar gigs.


Underground Sound is offering the chance for artists to get their videos (and these videos can be live performances, studio videos, backstage interviews, video blogs by the band, unplugged sessions etc), into a music video channel, programmed and produced for distribution via mobile phones, handheld devices, IPTV and the Internet. At least 24 Sonicbids artists are guaranteed to be featured.

The company will choose a maximum of 30 artists to feature each month, as they need a continuous stream of bands. Artists can visit http://m.vmbc.tv on their mobile phone now to see the bands that have made the cut so far. Underground Sound is available to indie fans for downloadable videos, free streaming video, and ringtones all on their mobile phone, they can watch their favorite live set from a festival, or download the music video of their favorite band.

Bands that have already been featured include Barcelona, Mudhoney, New Pornographers, Moby, Kaiser Cartel, Ready Goes, Lucinda Black Bear, The World Fair, Kills, Little Boots, The Futureheads, Amanda Palmer, and more. The Underground Sound mobile video channel garners around 20,000 views per month and nearly a quarter-million views per year. Viewers are from around the world.

Compensation Information
Underground Sound is a channel for the consumer to discover new bands and as such is primarily a promotional channel. When revenues are received from the phone carriers, then artists are paid 40% of the net revenue based on viewership of their video within the channel. These terms would be included in our standard terms and conditions contract that any band would have to accept and sign prior to being accepted. The contract is non-exclusive. Underground Sound can also generate value for any band by creating ringtones, ring-back tones, full track downloads, and wallpapers (i.e. graphics of a band’s logo, or promo shot of the band made into an image sized just for mobile phones). This is a service that is offered for free to selected bands that are getting the most video views and those that are releasing content in the near future to help support any marketing efforts.

Further Submission Requirements
Selected artists must accept Underground Sound’s non-exclusive standard terms and conditions. Video submissions only. Submitted videos must be of a certain standard quality so that both the video and audio are clear. Foul language must be either bleeped out, or excluded altogether (there are moral guidelines when broadcasting material across mobile handsets). If submitting live performances, please break down to the best three or four songs. Complete live sets are far too long to go through and will be rejected. Final video specs must be met and will be discussed at a later date.

Also, in consideration of the license fees set forth in Section 2 below (License Fee), the Licensor further grants to Licensee a non-exclusive license to use and exploit the Trademarks designated by Licensor, solely on and in connection with the marketing and publication of the Content in the Territory. Licensee may affix, subject to the Licensors prior written approval, the Trademarks to or on all Content and to or on all packaging, advertising and promotional materials displayed, published, used or distributed in connection with the Content. Said Trademark license shall expire or terminate upon the expiration or termination of Licensees right to use the Content and related materials and reproduce, market and publish the Content as provided in Section 1.1 above. The Trademarks may only be used in association with the manufacture and distribution of the Content pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

However, if termination by Licensor is prior to the end of the initial Term, Licensee may, in its sole discretion, increase the Licensee Distribution Fee by an additional ten percent (10%), from any and all outstanding revenue share payments. Any termination by Licensee under the terms of Paragraph 6(a) shall halt all payment obligations by Licensee to Licensor.
(e) Licensees duty upon expiration or termination of this Agreement shall be solely limited to notifying our distribution partners in writing. It is not Licensees obligation to ensure that its distribution partners comply with such notice and Licensor cannot initiate any legal action toward Licensee based on a 3rd partys compliance, or lack thereof, with take-down notices. It is Licensors responsibility to ensure Content is not sold in undesirable places, at Licensors sole discretion, after expiration or termination.

This right is limited to once (1) per year. If such examination reveals that, according to Licensors representative, there is a discrepancy from any payment owed to Licensor, then Licensee shall immediately pay the amount of any underpayment. If such examination reveals that, according to Licensors representative, there is a discrepancy of more than 10% from any payment owed to Licensor, then Licensee shall also immediately pay all of Licensors costs in any way associated with such examination. If Licensee disputes such discrepancy, an independent auditor reasonably approved by Licensor and by Licensee shall review the books and records at Licensees sole expense and make a final decision. All computerized books of account and records shall be kept available by Licensee for at least twenty-four (24) months after termination of this Agreement. Licensor agrees that any information obtained hereunder shall be subject to the Confidential Information requirements specified herein. In addition, the exercise by Licensor (in whole or in part, and at any time or times) of its right to audit Licensees books and records or of any other right granted herein shall be without any prejudice to and waiver of any rights and remedies of Licensor. Likewise, Licensors acceptance of any statement of deposit by Licensor of any payment tendered by or on behalf of Licensee shall be without prejudice to or waiver of any rights or remedies of Licensor and shall in no way stop, prevent, or otherwise impede Licensor from thereafter disputing the accuracy of any such statement or payment.

Each payment shall be accompanied by a statement identifying the applicable period and detail for the computation of royalties and the amount thereof, and a report containing mutually agreed upon content (which will include at a minimum the total number of streams/downloads of Content).

The minimum Royalty to be paid for any given period is $500 (Five hundred US dollars). If the total Royalties owed to Licensor does not reach the $500 level, the amount will be accrued and added to Licensors share for the following period(s). If the $500 level is not met Licensor shall receive a statement showing the Royalties accrued for said period only upon request, provided that upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Licensor will be paid all accrued Royalties even if they do not exceed $500.

Licensor agrees that its Content will be used for mostly promotional use, which Licensee does not get compensated for, and therefore, Licensor will not be paid or anyway compensated for that use of its Content.
