Video game music composers make 1000-2000 US dollars per minute of music if they are really good. Each game requires 80 mnts of music! With record labels my experience is limited but here it is: I sold one song to be in a hit compilation which had 20 songs. After the cd sold 1800 copies i made 100 Euro!!!!!!!!!! Suckage! it is very hard work but unless you are a top top composer or artist with your own cd on the market dont waste your time unless you are not counting on the income!
