Re:Sound handles recorded music or sound that is used in a live performance. When searching for music rights in theatre, it is possible that you will need to apply for the recording rights as well as composition rights. Composition rights are usually handled with SOCAN, but the recording rights are taken care of at Re:Sound. They represent recording artists and music labels. When looking for recording rights, check out the tariff definitions on Re:Sound’s website. Don’t be afraid to email or call a representative at Re:Sound. The more you talk to these organizations, the more you will figure out where to go for performance rights and when.
Per each event, the fee is calculated as such:
- Incidental fees (use of sound recordings for 10 min or less): 0.8 cents per (patron) admission, subject to a minimum of $15 per event
- Integral fees (use of the sound recordings for 10 min or more): 3.2 cents per (patron) admission, subject to a minimum of $30 per event.
