Fee Guidelines for Concert Music Commissions
The Contemporary Music Centre and the Association of Irish Composers have drawn up a set of fee guidelines for use in conjunction with new music commissions. While advisory rather than mandatory, the guidelines are based on 'the going rate' for commissions in other art forms and jurisdictions and should provide a useful benchmark for anyone involved in the commissioning process, whether as composer or commissioner. There is also a useful checklist of issues which should be discussed by all parties and agreed in writing at the outset of any commissioning process.
