Mad Lass Music

Independent Music for Independent Filmmakers

About

Born and bred in Paris (the one in France, not Texas), I compose dark, electro-orchestral atmospheric music that is strongly influenced by Woodkid, Air and Hans Zimmer. 

In 2016, I wrote, recorded and produced 100 tracks exactly while working full-time as a contracts compliance auditor for a Fortune 500 company.

In 2017, I left my office job to do music full time....

I'm having a blast! 🙂

Can you tell? Listen to some of my work...

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy your music?

I have 2 albums and 2 EPs available under 2 different artist names on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc. 

You can check them out here or look for them on your preferred platform (a search by album name tends to work better).

  • Battles of the Beasts by JoKe (full album)
  • Origin Stories by JoKe (EP)
  • Sounds from a Thousand Faces by Anamorphosis (full album)
  • Prequel by Anamorphosis (EP)

 

Can I use your music for free in a YouTube video?

The answer is.... YES! .....

As long as your project is non-commercial, i.e. you're not making any money from it. 

That means, among other things, no Youtube advertising.

You can drop me an email at joyce@madlassmusic.com, let me know which track(s) you want to use and I'll get back to you within 4 days with your download code.

The only thing I ask for in return is for you to send me a link to the finished project so that I can feature it in a demo reel if that tickles my fancy.

When do I need a license for your music?

If you’re working on something you’re getting paid for, or are advertising something that could one day make money, then you need to get a license from the company that owns the music you're using (in this case, me).

Note that buying any music from iTunes, Amazon, etc. is for listening purposes only. You’re not actually getting a license to use the music in a project.

How do you record your music?

I record and produce everything in Logic Pro X on a Mac Book Pro.

Some of the tools I use are:

  • an Akai MPK mini controller 
  • East/West instruments for lots of orchestral samples
  • Yamaha HS7 studio monitors
  • Komplete Ultimate 10 by Native Instrument
  • an old school audio interface by M-Audio
  • Native Instruments' Komplete Kontrol 49
  • a 6" x 9 1/2" notebook!
What's your process for writing music?

It varies a lot depending on the project. It really depends on how much constraints there are in the project I'm working on.

When I have zero constraints on a project or am in between projects, I like to improvise in short music-making sessions.

If you're interested in watching me work, you can check out my Morning Sessions.

Can you help me write music and/or get it on film?

I'd love to but have limited time for one-on-one coaching soooooo.... what I've done instead is create a website with lots of free resources to help creatives who want to be more productive.

Whether you're just starting out with ambitions of learning how to compose or already an accomplished singer/songwriter looking to get your music on film and TV, you'll find something helpful on there.
