I\'ve written some music for my brother-in-law to use in some 30 and 60 second radio spots. The music will play from start to finish with a voiceover through most of the middle.
My question is \"how long should my 60 second music be?\" Should it go \"wall to wall\" and fill the full allotment, or should I leave a split second of breath before the start, and after the last note resonates?
I want to get it right the first time. And I don\'t want somebody down the line running it through a time squeezer to make it fit their guidelines.
Thanks in advance for (most) any and all advice!
