What is a Record Company

A record company is a company that records the compositional intellectual property of a music publisher in the form of vinyl, cassette tapes, CDs, MP3, aiff, wav files, Session files, Blu-ray, DVD, or any audio medium that can reproduce a sound through speakers and can be purchased by a consumer.


Record

1. A register; an authentic or official copy of any writing, or account of any facts and proceedings, entered in a book or physical medium for preservation.


Record Companies

What does a Record Company do?

  • The record company does not manage the artist.

  • The record company only represents the Sound Recordings owned by the recording artist, which may or may not be the artist.

  • The record company distributes the sound recording.

  • The record company sells the sound recording.

  • The record company manages the sound recording.

  • The record company markets the sound recording.

The Illusion

Now because the Record Company does all this it may appear that they are actually promoting the artist. The case is that the Record Company is doing the work to promote the sound recording which gives the artist the illusion that the record company is promoting the artist when in actuality they are only promoting the recordings.
