Piece of me

Brief

          This was an expired brief, originally presented by 23rd Precinct to songwriters and composers in their roster in the following email:

 

This is a brief for a girl group from one of Korea’s majors.

  • This label always secures at least one #1 single for their girl groups

  • There is a reason why the label doesn’t want to reveal the name. The reach, the marketing push, and the media’s interest are already massive.

  • 25% writer share allocation for adaptor/lyricist/ producer and co- writer/co-producer credit required

  • Deadline: 48hr turnaround

  • Below are the references. These are your main bread and butter, so let’s get this:
    -- Kaskade - Fun
    -- Jax Jones - Instruction

Response

          I took on this brief for numerous reasons - other than being a fan of K-Pop for over a decade now, I find tight turnarounds highly motivating, and I had never written a dance-pop track before.

          I tried to be as strict with the time constraint as possible in order to emulate receiving this brief in a professional context - starting the 48 hour time limit from the time the brief was posted, no matter what I was doing. Due to this, I took a more structure approach to writing - blocking out each section in my session before building up melodically.

Is That Me?
