What is Collaboration?

Collaboration is a partnership between two or more parties. The goal is to create something that sounds great and it often works really well. This is because different artists will have different strengths. Some people may be better at laying a drum beat, creating the base or the melody.

Music producers can also form collabs with bloggers, YouTubers, other music industry professionals or anyone else who can support the creation of the music. Sometimes, even music fans are called on to help create a better mix of music.

My Experience of Collaborations

When I was doing my Bachelor’s degree at the University of West London, I collaborated with various different musicians from across the world. I live in the United Kingdom, but I managed to produce a track with a drummer from the United States and a guitarist from Romania. Both musicians were highly talented and the work that we produced was of a good standard. If anyone gave a poor performance, it was me. I did experience some issues in matching up the tempos, but it was a good experience.

Other experience has included reviewing artists from around the world. This has been a great success and some testimonials from a few of the artists are included on the home page of Krannaken.com. This was mainly done through Fiverr, but I had my gig removed by Fiverr as they thought my gig was unclear. I made the necessary changes and they still took it down. However, I still review music sometimes. If you are working as a reviewer on Fiverr, my best advice is to make sure that you establish contact with your client off Fiverr as well as on Fiverr. They don’t like this action, but it is the best way for you.

How to Find Collaboration Opportunities With Other Artists?

If you want to find collaboration opportunities, a great way to do so is by attending network events. Sites such as MeetUp, LinkedIn and many others (post coming soon) are an excellent way to network and also to collaborate with other musicians, music industry and media professionals.

How Do You Ask Artists For Collaborations?

The first thing you both need to ask is, is this the right person I can work with? For instance, do they make the same genre as you? What is their musical style? We all have our unique artistic fingerprints. Do your ethics and your whole ethos line up with other artists? Can they create the kind of quality that you require.

It is important to remember that your collaborative partner needs to be of a similar standard to you. You need to work with people who have a great attitude towards their work. It doesn’t matter what their experience level is, as long as they have an excellent attitude towards their work.

However, it is important to note that a total newbie won’t be able to create music to extremely high standards. Similarly, it is also important to note that an expert musician may require higher standards than you are able to produce.
