Just a quick update, as of yesterday I own a publishing company. It’s called Bathysphere Music, for reasons I may or may not explain in the future. I founded/filled out an application to start it because if on the off chance ASCAP ever collects their thirty dollars for my selling out the Staple Center, my simply writing the music isn’t enough. It has to be published for them to mail a check, and if you publish your music yourself you have to register twice, once as a composer, and once as a publishing company. Cool, right?
Though as far as I can tell the purpose of this is for ASCAP to double their income from application fees, at least I got a name I like. Maybe I can come up with a cool logo too.
