STATELINE, Nev. - Oct. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- On Top Of a Cloud is pleased to announce the selection of "A Time For Us" and "Tres Cuartos del Camino al Amor" by Songtradr, "the fastest-growing, music licensing platform in the world."

Songtradr's world class content management system arms music makers with a comprehensive set of tools and services to professionally manage their careers, while [their] automated marketplace and talented music supervisors streamline the music discovery and licensing process.

On Top Of a Cloud Composer and Founder Leland Thomas Faegre, was delighted by the announcement from Songtradr:

"Previously placed to Classical Music of the 21st Century - Vol. 1, a compilation CD from various artists by Rosenklang, [a well-established label and music management company with over fifteen years of experience in the field of music marketing and management], aficionados of Claude Debussy (1862-1918) will likely recognize 'A Time For Us' for his influence.  Written late in the 80's, it was a labor of love arranging orchestral instruments to the basic piano and is part of my 'Wedding Suite': a romantic suite of music specifically tailored for an individual, formal, customized ceremony."

Songtradr connects music creators globally to film, TV, brands and other media in a fully-automated worldwide marketplace for music licensing. Music creators maintain complete control of their rights and are empowered with the tools they need to monetize their music assets. Using Songtradr's proprietary search and variable license pricing technology, music supervisors, brands, filmmakers and other creatives can now easily license music from the world's best emerging artists, bands and composers.

Taxi, an independent artist and repertoire (A&R) firm that acts as a casting agent to the labels and Hollywood studios, describes "A Time For Us":

"This is lovely. It reminds me of Morricone and that's very high praise.  Well recorded...The writing and arranging here are superb overall. My compliments!"

"A Time For Us" is available from iTunes, Amazon and many other fine stores:



Faegre recounts the production challenge of his Latin-themed, "Tres Cuartos del Camino al Amor":

"It was previously placed to Latin Dance Factory: Salsa, a compilation CD from various artists by Rosenklang on Ecstasy Records.  I had only the vaguest of an outline as I began this work. Challenged by the genre, arrangement and production itself, I answered the call from Janet Fisher for a 'HOT, uptempo, (authentic) Salsa, Bossa Nova and 'Rio' type of instrumental music,' and it became a labor of love with the percussion parts taking up most of the studio time. Working in the 'live room' at 'Down to Hear Productions' I recorded the Flamenco guitar parts and then went immediately to Collinator Studios to lay down the electric guitar parts, finishing the production the following day. It was an exhaustive and very quick deadline.  Would you like chips with this?"

Faegre characterized the arrangement as complex:

"Conceived in a 3/4 time signature, the syncopation nonetheless makes it feel more like 4/4. The introductory piano montuno is stylistically Cuban-salsa, with Flamenco guitar, timbales and guero, maracas, bongos and congas, cowbell and sundry percussion.  I added a trumpet section, Santanaesque lead guitar, drums and bass guitar and ihay caramba! Muy muy caliente..."


Taxi has variously critiqued "Tres Cuartos del Camino al Amor":

"I thought the arrangement was good and the musicianship excellent...Your work always displays a high level of musicianship and compositional expertise...your work is always extremely well conceived and executed.  Congratulations...!"

"I am always impressed with your talent and ability to generate interesting and authentic sounds and unusual and engaging arrangements..."

---Taxi, August 16, 2006

"...This is one of your most impressive pieces -- terrific arrangement and great use of synths and samples...It's really very well done..."

---Taxi, September, 5, 2006

"This song has a very unusual melodic structure; the rhythms are very frenetic and polyphonic. That said, the song has an interesting personality and vibe, and it generates a lot of heat. The electronic elements and the organic elements are well balanced and it sounds as if there are real musicians present (if only via digital transport.) It's careening, over the top rhythmic feel (where the drummer sounds like he's falling down a flight of stairs!) makes for interesting listening."

"Tres Cuartos del Camino al Amor" is available from iTunes, Amazon and many other fine stores:
