At Cezame, we believe that production music is a creative field in its own right.
The composers working with us readily embrace this idea as a starting point in the creative process which is ultimately aimed at professionals in the audio-visual sphere.
Whether you are a director, editor, producer or sound-scapist, our goal is to share with you our belief and the authentic musical integrity of our composers through their sensitivity, originality and diversity.
We are currently looking for a Head of Creative and Sales who will share our vision with TV companies and Advertising agencies, in fact anyone looking for high quality music for their projects in the UK.

- We are looking for someone to travel extensively throughout the UK, promoting the catalogue at conferences and meeting production companies and ad agencies. Travel expenses will be paid for.
