Music Solutions for Content Creators and Broadcasters
Outsource creative and administrative elements to drive revenue, control cost, increase efficiency and mitigate risk.
What we do.
Transition Music Corporation delivers a fully scalable music division complete with music catalogs, production music libraries, and experts in music publishing, copyright, administration, licensing, supervision, and asset management.
Whether you're creating new music, filing copyrights, licensing songs, or reporting music use, you need a skilled and experienced team.
Music is the one element all forms of media and entertainment have in common. Yet, despite necessity and daily use, it's not cost-effective for 90% of content creators or broadcasters to invest millions in acquiring music IP and staff a comprehensive music department to manage music internally.
At Transition we believe the 10% shouldn't be the only ones who benefit from the successful management, marketing and monetization of music.
