Composer and pianist Carlos Cipa has signed a long-term publishing agreement with Bosworth Music (part of Wise Music) and WKDJ Augment Publishing & Strategy.
Cipa is currently touring Germany and Europe with his latest album, Ourselves, As We Are (Warner Music Classics).
As well as being known for instrumental music, which are both classical and contemporary in style, Cipa’s catalogue also includes electronic and pop compositions.
Since 2022, Cipa has also increasingly devoted himself to composing for classical ensembles such as string quartet and wind quintet, and co-founding the new concert series Feet Become Ears in Munich and Leipzig. He has also established himself as a composer for film and television.
The deal is a renewal for Wise Music and brings in WKDJ as a new partner.
According to a statement on the publishing deal for the German composer and pianist, “all parties optimistically look forward to a promising collaboration, as Wise Music and WKDJ be able to contribute their individual strengths in the fields of classical/neoclassical and electronic music, as well as in the placement of Carlos Cipa's works in film, TV and advertising… Working together, both publishers will help Carlos Cipa's works achieve international distribution that does justice to the high quality of his work.”
