Be Advised: Nox Arcana Music Policy Change
As the manager of The Haunted Forest Of Carousel I have always used a variety of Dark Ambient music at our show mainly Midnight Syndicate and in the last few years Nox Arcana as well.
Well all that changed about 2 weeks ago. I was recently contacted by Dark Ambient artist Nox Arcana about changes to their music policy. Just like the group Midnight Syndicate, Nox Arcana had a yearly registration policy, in exchange for putting their banner on your website and hanging up their posters at your attraction during the haunt season you were free to use any of their 300+ song library. They informed me BMI would pursue anyone who used their music or any other BMI music unless you pay them $100.00 this season.
After a few emails back and forth this is what I got out of them for this new policy change.
They informed me that due to some OTHER haunts not hanging up their posters or registering their music and using their banners they decided they didn't want to let anyone use their music and waste their time and money printing off posters and mailing them. Fair enough right?
Here's where it gets funny, I told them I wouldn't use their music anymore and that I would just use other Dark Ambient music by other artists. But I did thank them for the many years that it was free.
And their reaction to my short honest and courteous email reply?
They chastised me for not wanting to pay based upon how much money we make in an email about 4 paragraphs long.
Real classy Huh?
LOL I've been laughing every since.
I also informed Midnight Syndicate of the Nox Arcana's Policy Change.
I guess at The Haunted Forest Of Carousel this year the only posters that will be hanging up will be Midnight Syndicates!
