For the seventh time now, the music publisher Melodie der Welt and the music agency The Musicbrokers have organized a common songwriting camp. The new works have been created within three days in the Chameleon Studios, Hamburg, at the beginning of November. Three teams each, that had been put together of established songwriters and new talents, worked in a relaxed, but concentrated atmosphere on compositions and lyrics, which could be produced immediately under studio conditions as demo. This time the main focus of the camp was on the new works for the young target audience: It has been written for a new German language project which is directly addressed to kids from 7 to 12 years. Furthermore, songs have been created for a 13-year old singer, in whom the industry had already expressed keen interest.
“We see ourselves as a music agency that would like to provide as well an opportunity to young talents in particular to gain experience and go first steps in the music business as songwriter. The co-operation with Melodie der Welt gives us full flexibility to combine ambitious junior authors with successful songwriters in teams. The works thereby created are proof that this mixture often leads to compositions quite out of the ordinary”, Tom Nevermann, managing director The Musicbrokers, explains the functioning of his agency. John Ruhrmann, A&R Melodie der Welt, adds: “For nearly four years now we are cooperating with The Musicbrokers as co-publishing partner as well as in the field of organization and performance of songwriting camps. These, as meanwhile firmly established institution, always offer the possibility to our own writers and to those of our partners to cooperate with authors from all over Germany and to get in contact. Successful co-operations and long-standing friendships have already been founded.”
Further regular camps are planned for the next years to come.
