Way back in January, Andrew called us, with excitement in his voice. He had just received confirmation from Tapspace, that they would be publishing a marimba piece, he had composed and sent to them.
From there it was a long process of editing, arranging for a good friend to play and record the piece, proofing, and finally, giving the okay to publish.
In July, his first piece, First Impressions, was published with TapSpace, and last week he received his first royalty check. So now he’s making very little money – but the point is – he’s a published composer!
When he showed me the difference of what Tapspace hauls in, compared to his percentage, I told him he was on the wrong end of that deal. He agreed with me, but is up to the challenge of continuing on with this journey of composing, and getting published with bigger and better music publishing houses.
You can find First Impressions on Tapspace under his name, Andrew Patzig, or through this link. click on the tab, shared recording, and you can see and hear his friend, Robbie, playing it. You can also follow this link, to see and hear Andrew playing the piece.
So if any of you have a marimba lying around your house, gathering dust, now’s the time to get some first-rate music from an up-and-coming, new composer, to play!
We are very proud…
