New music/old music debate; might depend on where you are looking regarding placements. I've heard both used for TV commercials as well as film. Indie films often use "older" sounds as well esoteric music that might have difficulty finding a home elsewhere. Most music libraries I've encountered had almost zero use for anything "trad" sounding. So, judging by my experience, I would say that to be current (or have that ability along with whatever else you do) might be the best policy (for placements) unless you are an "artist" carving out a career based on your own style.
Regardless, the "meat" of popular music is still found, since the 50's, within the family of Diatonic chords...being creative within those sounds is where the art comes in.
Just my opinion.....respect to all here.
Hey, Hellohead, do you do your own mastering as well?
