Wisseloord House of Music

THE HEART OF THE EUROPEAN MUSIC INDUSTRY SINCE 1978

Not just a Studio

Wisseloord is not only a recording studio. More than anything else, it is a home for talented musicians, a creative hub of hundreds of bands, songwriters, composers, producers and artists from all over the world.

In The House Of Music (a partnership between Wisseloord and BMG), we organise daily writing sessions, writing camps, invest in records, host artists in residences, collaborate with several Bureaus of Export to help artists grow their international network, and much more…

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

To Join the Wisseloord House Of Music, it is simple. First you need to reach out to us through the contact form and send us some of your music. If we find that your music matches our selection criteria, our A&R team will plan an intake talk with you to explain you all the ins and outs of the sessions and the several programs that we host.

Exemple of programs :

  • Songwriting sessions
  • Writing Camps in The Netherlands, Italy, France, Estonia, Iceland…
  • International Residencies
  • Productions and Artists support

 

 

WHAT’S UP IN THE STUDIOS?

 

Writing sessions / writing camps

During our daily writing sessions or international writing camps, you can decide with your co-writers about what you want to create. We give you some briefings of international artists looking for tracks, but you can decide all together what/who you will write and compose for. Never forget that even when you do sessions for artists on briefings, it is still your music. You have the final word on what happens with the tracks!

 

End of the day bounce

At the end of the writing day, you will hopefully have a song. You fill in with all the writers the digital split sheet that we will send you. This is the document that will protect your copyrights. You send us the demo and we will get back at you with some feedback on the song.

 

Homework / Finishing tracks

The writers can work on the song at home if necessary.

If you need an extra day to finish the song, we will plan a follow up session. If you decide to not finish the song any further, that’s no problem, but beware that we advise to finish every song as good as possible. In that way we can try to place it further on all our channels.

 

 

What happens with the tracks

All the demos that are written during our writing sessions or camps are registered in our database. Artists from all over the world are reaching out to us to check our songs. We also reach out ourselves to pitch the tracks directly to labels, managers and artists. We also send all the songs to our partner BMG who is also actively working out our best tracks.

 

Opportunities

If we find any kind of opportunity for a song, we directly contact all the writers to discuss what we can do. It is your music and we don’t make any moves on it without all the writers agreeing.
