On this Sei Nakauchi Pelletier Interview, Sei, a recording artist and music licensing expert, shares his journey in the music industry and his experience in film composing. He discusses the turning point in his career that occurred during a solo trip to Japan, which inspired him to start a new musical project influenced by film. Sei emphasizes the importance of understanding the psychology of working in film composing and offers insights on effective communication in the industry, his approach to composing and storytelling in music, the importance of pacing and editing in his creative process, his perspective on the language of music and film, the challenges of interpreting emotions and cultural nuances in different languages, getting gigs and building relationships… his thoughts on handling rejection and pitching, emphasizing the importance of trust in collaboration, great advice for newbies in music licensing, and loads more cool stuff

Sei is a Montreal-based composer and recording artist also known for his work as a film and television composer, a field in which he’s been working in for the last 15 years. He is also a founding member and the primary songwriter and arranger of the Japanese psychedelic experimental surf & art-rock band TEKE::TEKE. He’s also collaborated with several artists as a producer, arranger, and as a touring musician. Sei is tri-lingual and has scored over two-dozen movies in Japanese, French, and English. I met Sei initially when he was a guest here on Everyone Loves Guitar a while back… and we had a great conversation which you can find on the Everyone Loves Guitar YT Channel or on our audio podcast. Today, I wanted to have him back to specifically discuss his experience in music licensing for both the Everyone Loves Guitar audience and for our Music Licensing Profits YT Channel and podcast, as well
