And as promised it’s here – Art-list have just opened the public beta of their highly‐anticipated music licensing platform to everyone. Filmmakers can now subscribe to the service and download as much pre‐licensed high quality music as they want. is available for a flat, affordable yearly subscription fee of $199, which gives filmmakers and visual media creators of all types can get unlimited access to Art‐list’s ever‐expanding library of high‐quality music. The music is sourced from a worldwide network of independent musicians, and rivals the quality of today’s most prominent music licensing.

In addition to the unlimited access, filmmakers need not worry about buying additional licenses to use the music on commercial projects. Included in the yearly subscription fee is Art‐list’s universal license, which covers personal, commercial, and many additional uses.

This flexible license, combined with a wide variety of high quality music, makes Art‐list an ideal solution not only for independent filmmakers who can’t afford to license multiple songs through other services, but also for YouTube creators and corporate filmmakers who make commercial work in high volume.

Art-list have prepared a video, which guides you through the process of finding the perfect song for your project:

They have also released new spotlight profile videos for some of the artists, whose music is featured on Art-list.

Co‐founded by Ira Belsky, a working Israeli filmmaker frustrated with the available options for licensing music, Art‐list is tailor‐made to making the licensing process as simple and streamlined as it can possibly be.

“I was always so frustrated with licensing,” Belsky said. “It can be really expensive and time consuming, especially for the good songs, which takes away time that I could be spending on things I actually enjoy, like editing. So we decided to create a platform that would make it dead simple to license good music, which then allows you to spend more time focusing on creating.”

Because of the universal license, subscribers to Art‐list only have to add songs to their cart and hit the checkout button before the songs are immediately sent to their inbox. No additional steps are required.
