Want your music to be used in films or games? Have a CD that came out five years ago, but never sold well, and don’t know what you can do with it now? Well, you have something to learn from major labels.

The new issue of Stand Above The Noise features an interview with Corinna C. Poeszus, General Manager of Universal Publishing Production Music (Germany).

We conducted the chat on the roof of the Universal building in Berlin, a place journalists don’t have access to usually, as well as inside Corinna’s office, where she was kind enough to show us some of UPPM’s most successful projects.
