De verkopers van Straatnieuws – dé daklozenkrant van Den Haag en Rotterdam – staan dag in dag uit, in weer en wind, de krant te verkopen. Een zware baan. Daar kunnen ze best wat ondersteuning bij gebruiken. Deze kerst krijgen ze een bonus.
Straatnieuws krijgt geen subsidie en bestaat van de verkoop. De verkopers kopen de krant normaliter in voor €1,35 en verkopen hem voor €2,00. Het verschil is hun verdienste. De verkopers zijn kleine ondernemers. Deze winter zorgt Stichting Haags Straatnieuws voor een bonus: verkopers mogen editie #17 inkopen voor € 1,00 en verkopen voor € 2,00. Ze hebben dus € 1,00 winst per krant.
Ook supporten? Vanaf vandaag is ons kerstnummer te koop!
🎥🎶ROTTERS & SONS, pt. 2 – by G.T. Thomas.
Continuing my experiments w/ stock music in Rotterdam! While walking around listening to some of my favourite library music tunes, there were moments where the music synched up just perfectly w/ the surroundings.
In those moments, life felt like TV show or film from the ‘70s or ‘80s, and it was grand. .
I carefully documented these occurrences, then when I got home I started recreating the mood by making a soundalike, and placing it under the videos I had shot on location of the scenes. (The first 1 I did can be found in my previous upload, ROTTERS & SONS, pt. 1.)
The moment of music I was listening to as I walked past this somewhat ominous ZADKINE building was very similar to what you hear here, but this is my own spin on it using my own instruments and such. I’ll post an additional, more personal note about this video on the comments below.
WHAT IS A SOUNDALIKE?
If you’re active in scoring or music production, you already know all about soundalikes, but for the unindoctrinated it’s actually not such an obvious concept. So I’ll explain:
A soundalike is a piece of music that is designed to stylistically mimic or represent a pre-existing piece of music, while remaining original.
A soundalike may be requested, for example, by filmmakers who heard a song they would love to use in their film, but which is out of their price range to license and therefore not an option. They may then hire a composer to recreate as many qualities of that song as possible, without doing anything that would infringe upon copyright.
In fact, just this past week, my music partner and I were contacted about creating a soundalike in a classic, early-60s easy listening style for exactly this reason – to use the original track for the film like the director had in mind would likely cost literally tens of thousands, and we’re hirable for a fraction of that cost.
I have about 11 years experience in soundalikes. DM me or contact via gtthomas.com if you have questions about these services!🌟
