–Background

Rick Dickert’s early musical studies resulted in bronze and silver medals from Trinity College of Music (London) for musical theory exams. Rick now offers composition and production music for use in television, film, live applications, web animations, ringtones and video games. Rick Dickert’s tracks draw from an audio palette of vintage keyboards, state-of-the-art virtual instruments, real percussion and real guitars and bass. Rick’s music is inspired by classic rock, traditional jazz and classical composers, particularly of baroque chamber music.

–High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

I rarely know who downloads my tracks or how they’re used, but the companies Elizabeth Arden and Ernst & Young have appeared on my track usage reports.

–Primary instrument?

Over the years the piano’s been my main instrument, but as I edit more on the computer I spend less time playing keyboards and more time on guitars.

–Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?

I’ve used Cubase since the mid-90s and I just upgraded to 7.5 with an MR816csx interface. I love this system and I’m looking forward to learning how to use it to its full potential.

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

I’d love to own more guitars; if I could choose one I’d probably pick something like an Ovation acoustic.

–Film score or song you admire? Why?

I remember first paying attention to film music when I heard the shark theme in the movie “Jaws.” I loved how those few notes made the scenes scarier. Lately I really admire John Williams’ score from “Memoirs of a Geisha”, because of the beautiful compositions featuring Yo-yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman as featured soloists.

–Music education background?

I had a couple of piano teachers and a few vocal lessons from a couple of instructors. I wasn’t a good piano student at the time because I had little interest in the classical music assigned for my studies. I did spend a significant time at the piano playing pop music and won bronze and silver medals for theory exams from Trinity College of Music (London).

Later on the road I continued to learn from some excellent musicians. I also started arranging while working as a single performer. I used keyboards, playing bass with my left hand as well as rhythm and lead lines with my right to a drum machine programmed specifically for each song.

–Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?

Possibly when I realized that the classical rules of harmony weren’t being followed by my favorite rock musicians at the time. For example, I think we may be able to find parallel fifths or some other violation on the Deep Purple album “Machine Head”.

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?

One night while playing the single act with a drum machine, keyboards and vocals, I somehow sang a note that had no useful relation to the chords I was playing, as if my hands and voice weren’t on the same page. It was scary and hard to describe, but I think it happened because my agent was there.

–If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?

I think I’d like to play with Fats Waller, even a small part in his band. I saw the musical “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and read his biography. I would have loved to hear those jazz pianists outdoing each other at the rent parties.

 –Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

At a concert during summer vacation in high school, the question of whether I’d continue playing hockey popped into my mind. Seeing The Guess Who rocking out settled it for me; I would quit hockey to spend more time rehearsing music. Obviously joining the American Federation of Musicians was also very significant.

 –Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

Be open to all kinds of music, learn about business. Plan for another source of income, without letting it become your reason to stop working at music. Ultimately I believe those destined to succeed can’t be permanently discouraged. (Cue the Hedley song “Anything”)

–Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

Amanda Marshall’s self-titled first album

The Guess Who’s “#10”

Paula Cole’s “This Fire”

Steely Dan’s “Aja“

Elton John’s “The Fox”

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?

The cello

–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

I think I tend to get the most done in the mornings, which I prefer.

–Any studio collaboration you experienced that stands out in your mind?

I played with Hourglass, a Guelph, Ontario based band. We recorded some covers for a club album and lip-synced some tracks for a TV show, which I believe helped me become a full ACTRA member.

–Some of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.

My favorite tracks include—

“Winter Holiday Piano” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=5181

“Royal York Main Theme Remix” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=5139

“Latin Guitar Combo” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=24162

I think probably my best selling track is a dark piano piece called “Atlas Requiem II.” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=5941

By the way, I really appreciate all the communication and help from Music Revolution!

 –Background

Richard Ames is a composer, arranger, and producer who has premiered compositions and arrangements with performing ensembles across the United States. His music also has appeared as underscore for feature films and commercials, TV shows, trailers, and animations on every major broadcast and cable network. His music is a careful balance of modern techniques and classically inspired structures, creating music that is both accessible and sophisticated.

–Projects or clients you have worked for?

I’ve had a pretty broad range of clients and projects – everything from film to TV to advertising to corporate.  I’ve even had the opportunity to do a few concert pieces.  Most recently, I’ve had really good placements in the film “One Chance” by director David Frankel (Devil Wears Prada) and advertisements for Target and Klondike.  I’m always amazed at the uses that people find for my music.

–Primary instrument?

Clarinet – I come from the classical music world and spent most of my musical career as a performer on concert stages, pit orchestras, studios, weddings, just about anything that paid a few bucks!  I’ve slowly transitioned to writing music over the last 6-7 years, mostly for film/TV but with a few concert works here and there.

–Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?

People think I’m joking but it’s true: my trash can (literally and figuratively).  I feel that writing music is partly a process of elimination, so every time I eliminate something, I’m further along in the process.

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

I don’t think it exists – a 3″ high 88-key controller so I can comfortably use both my computer keyboard and MIDI keyboard without having to strain to use one or the other or bash my knees against something.

–Film score or song you admire? Why?

There are so many- I’m a huge fan of John Williams, Danny Elfman, John Powell, Hans Zimmer, and James Newton Howard.  Because I come from the classical music world, I love the orchestral sound, especially when it’s combined with synthesizers and other elements from modern pop music.

–Music education background?

My musical training is in clarinet performance, most notably with Loren Kitt (National Symphony Orchestra) and David Niethamer (Richmond Symphony).

–Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?

There have been many but here’s an example: I was performing in a chamber music concert and we nailed a technical section that we never got right in rehearsal.  That was when I really understood how the combination of musicians and an audience can create something that doesn’t exist anywhere else.

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?

Forgetting to bring music to an audition – it’s awkward to borrow music from someone you’re competing against.  Plus, reading music you know but with someone else’s notes will rattle your brain a bit – that’s the last thing you want to do in an audition.  Needless to say, I didn’t get that gig!

–If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?

My grandfather and his brothers – the Ames Brothers.  They were a hugely popular vocal quartet in the 50′s and 60′s and even got a Grammy nomination.  I would have loved to tour with them and their bands.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

I think I eased in to it but probably sometime around my freshman year in High School I realized that I would always be a musician.  Music was always a part of my life before then, either as a performer or as a kid listening to records, but I never considered how it would affect my entire life until I was in my mid-teens.

–Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

If you have to think about it, don’t do it.

–Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

“By Request: Best of John Williams and the Boston Pops”

“The Goat Rodeo Sessions” feat. Yo-Yo Ma

“Mahler Symphony No 5″ Benjamin Zander and the Philharmonia Orchestra

“How to Train Your Dragon” soundtrack by John Powell

“Batman” soundtrack by Danny Elfman

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?

Definitely piano – particularly with modern music production tools, it really helps to have piano chops.

–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

First thing in the morning – I’m less creative after lunch so I try to write first thing in the morning and leave more mundane tasks until the afternoon.

–Any studio collaboration you experienced that stands out in your mind?

Most of my studio collaboration has been as a performer – I have done recordings of several clarinet pieces in my studio for projects in a variety of other locations.

–Some of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.

“Waiting to Strike” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=44348

“Surely You Are Joking” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=44361

“Through the Looking Glass” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=42931

“Quirky Comedy 4 – Epic Comedy” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=22171

“Quirky Comedy 4 – Epic Comedy” – it’s a short, quirky track I wrote for a closing credits roll and it gets used all the time.  “Through the Looking Glass” is another one that gets a lot of use – it has a bit of that Philip Glass minimalism feel that has become popular in advertising.

Pandora recently announced that it will be raising its monthly subscription prices for the first time since its 2009 launch – once again bemoaning the rising costs of music royalty payouts.

This whole matter is just two titans fighting about price; actually three titans, but the third one has been handcuffed.

Pandora wants market share and thus has priced their famous music streaming product ridiculously low. Social media posts abound where songwriters who write for the likes of Christina Aguilera complain about earning under $100 for over 6 million plays. But to Pandora stockholders (NYSE: P), this is just noise from pesky Occupy Wall Street drummers. In fact, the first place the Wall Street types think Pandora should go to cut costs is royalty payments. Why must music evolve beyond Michael Bolton?
On the artists’ side, the primary line of defense is being held by SoundExchange, who got an early win by analyzing the low prices Pandora was charging and deciding to charge them 50% of their revenue.

“We like what Pandora does; it’s a very exciting company.” Explained Michael Huppe, president of SoundExchange, “But if you remove the sound recordings from the mix, I would say the value proposition of Pandora drops off substantially.”

Pandora Founder Tim Westergren thinks this is unfair. “Satellite radio only pays 7.5% or 8% of their gross revenue, and broadcast radio is completely exempt.”

. “I like Tim–he’s a nice guy” says Huppe, “But it’s a bit disingenuous to simply look at percentage of revenue as a marker that you judge everything by…it’s not unusual for companies in the early stages to focus on things other than cash flow.”

Westergren can at least take solace that his royalty rate due to to ASCAP and BMI publishers is a meager 1.85% of his revenue. Of course those publishers are suing to receive more, but a Justice Department consent decree dating back to the anti-trust laws from 1941 has proved that to be difficult.

Adding salt to the wound, a New York district judge recently upheld the 1941 consent decree and reiterated that yes – ASCAP still has to grant licenses to businesses even when a rate cannot be negotiated. No – major publishers like EMI cannot pick up their toys and leave the party. And no – when the courts have to step in and arbitrate rate negotiations between Pandora and ASCAP the officials can’t reference rates that have been negotiated elsewhere. They must wear big, unflattering blinders.

My father once ventured that a wise company will never try to be the first to do something. It will instead copy a formula pioneered by a company that made all the mistakes and then “either do what they do…but better…..or do it somewhere else.”

I have to think that companies like Apple and Spotify, as they prepare and improve their own music streaming products, are busily sitting on the sidelines of this mess and taking copious notes; as Pandora’s box literally opens before their eyes.

Orchestral classical music is timeless. One of the easiest ways to tell which decade a movie or TV show comes from is to wait for the first music cue. But orchestral classical music, with soaring strings, brass, percussion and wind instruments, transcends all fads and trends.
