When a media production joins a music to their project, they sometimes use library music for economic reasons.
For some reason, composers and performing artists stay anonymous and it is very hard to identify them. Wouldn't they benefit for being identified? For example, if someone like the music of that commercial, they would be able to find other works of the artist, maybe contact him for a contract.
There are probably artists that struggle to gain audience with their personal projects or bands, that have well famous songs on commercials or movies without anyone knowing it.
I'm surprised that even if the media production doesn't identify the artists, the artists themselves rarely identify themselves with their own ways (personal website, online CV...).
Is there some clauses on the artists contracts that prevent them from communicate about the fact that they worked in such libraries?
