Our Musicians: Sound Recordings

AFM’s Sound Recording Agreement sets minimum wages and working conditions for musicians (including those preparing music) working on audio recordings—both in the studio and for live performances that are recorded. Musicians recording under a union contract also share in the proceeds from the Sound Recording Special Payments Fund and receive “new use” payments when their product is used in other mediums (e.g., recordings later used in films, TV, commercials, etc.).
