Final Cue Music Library Merges with Soundgram

Hits 20 Million Views on TikTok


 The Dutch Final Cue Music Library has found amazing success with recent social media placements heard around the world by millions.


 In 2020, Soundgram Post acquired, revised, and updated the Final Cue Music Library – which was relaunched in December of last year.  Since then, the use of the catalog on social media has exploded, particularly on TikTok, the short-form video sharing platform.  In just over one month almost a thousand videos were created using Final Cue Music resulting in over twenty million views and thousands of streams on Spotify and YouTube.


“We anticipated and pushed social media use after the update,” says label manager Scott Pearson, “and creators have responded in kind.  We couldn’t be happier with our new  audience as the platform gains momentum in the marketplace.”


For Soundgram CEO and new Final Cue Library owner Johan van der Voet, the recent upsurge is the happy result of spending the last year reworking the collection.   


“We added a lot of new music and purged tracks we didn’t think worked anymore,” said the producer, “especially with social media and commercials in mind.”


 As of January 2022, the entire new collection of over 1000 unique tracks was made available online with an improved search engine and a more efficient tagging system.  “This surge is a trend we would like to see continue throughout the year,” says van der Voet with a smile, “I’m glad it made all that work last year worth it all.”

These tracks can also be found on TikTok. Our most streamed song is 'Ava Maria' and tracks from the Club from 5 film score.

The Club of Five soundtracks available

Looking back, this year was (and is) a year full of turbulence but also closure. We worked hard to finish the movie “De Club van Vijf”. And this paid off; ‘Best Movie’, ‘Best Actrice’ (Holly van Zoggel) and ‘Best Direction’ (Mark Weistra) at The Hague Festival, a nomination for Noorderkroon, preview screening at NFF. Now weve also released the soundtracks of the movie.

After youve seen De Club van Vijf, you can now sing along with more than 30 soundtracks of the movie. You can listento the movietracks in the iTunes store, Spotify Music, Amazon Music and YouTube Music.  

Haven’t you seen the movie yet? Watch it on Pathé Thuis, MeJane, KPN or T-Mobile.

Soundgram Post begins crowdfunding to finish Dutch adventure film

Director Mark Weistra teams up with composer Johan van der Voet to complete a cute family feature just in time for the holidays

Soundgram Post Main Production Suite “B” for Soundtrack Mixing

The Film

The Club of Five is a film like you’ve never seen before: a summer adventure film about Sinterklaas!  A charismatic group of childhood friends discover a big mystery, a hidden plot about Sinterklaas that needs to be unmasked!  However, there are dark forces at work trying to put a stop to their quest.  Gradually The Club of Five unveils an evil plan that could destroy the Sinterklaas holiday for generations … maybe forever! Click here for the trailer!

The Story

The Club of Five is almost finished, but two crucial elements are missing: the sound and the music! Due to unforeseen weather and production delays there was no budget left for the sound mixing and the musical score.  And frankly: What is a film without music?

Soundgram Post Productions has generously promised to take care of the audio post production at cost. With your contribution Johan can also get started with composing the soundtrack so the music can be recorded with gifted musicians and the team can get busy with the sound design. Our goal is to start final post-production in March and be ready by June, in time for the Dutch Film Festival in the fall and a theatrical release near the holidays.

The Team

Mark Weistra is an experienced filmmaker and dedicated director with a passion for Dutch film ( ).  His filmography spans many genres, including thriller (Taxandrea, 2008), horror (Kristen, 2015) and suspense (Het Verhoor, 2018). The Club of Five is the first children’s film that Mark made, fully shot in the Netherlands with Dutch actors and the real Sinterklaas of course!

Johan van der Voet is a noted Dutch composer who owns Soundgram Post ( an audio & music production studio in Utrecht. His 25-year career includes soundtrack work on nearly 100 film and television shows, as well as hundreds of sessions with musicians, artists, and voice-overs artists. The Club of Five is the third feature film in which Johan and Mark have worked together.

The Impact

In the midst of all the English-language films that dominate the local cinemas nowadays, this warm, cozy Dutch film offers a welcome change. It’s a movie in which children from The Netherlands see themselves on the big screen as epic adventurers, portrayed as honest, loyal and smart.  With Sinterklaas in the spotlight, The Club of Five has the potential to bring families together every year, a holiday traditional for years to come!

Use Soundgram’s production music for free

We’ve made it easy for production companies to use our music in TV broadcast content

If you are a production company: did you know you can easily use our production music for BBC, ITV, SKY, DISCOVERY, RTL, NPO, SBS, or radio content? Through the MCPS-PRS or BUMA-STEMRA licence with the BBC and other broadcasters, you can access all our production music tracks of the highest quality for free, making our music an obvious choice for BBC productions.

The blanket TV broadcast licence gives access to tracks for use on the BBC’s public service television channels, radio stations, on-demand services and the BBC World Service.

So to be clear the tracks of our Soundgram music library are already covered under the BBC’s licence with PRS for Music.

A bit more about the licence…

It covers all of the following BBC Television channels – BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four, BBC News, BBC Parliament, CBeebies, CBBC, BBC Scotland, BBC Alba, BBC Arabic (World Service) and BBC Persia (World Service). Radio channels – Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, Radio 4 Extra, Radio 5 Live, Radio 5 Live Sports Extra, Radio 6 Music, Asian Network, Radio Scotland, Radio Nan Gàidheal, Radio Ulster, Radio Foyle, Radio Wales, Radio Cymru, Radio Cymru 2, BBC Local Radio and BBC World Service.

From 2019, the Soundgram Production Music Library can be used in content made for the above services without additional fees being charged to the BBC, the producer, or the distributor for the creation or distribution of content further down the line. This means that content can be sold or supplied to the likes of Netflix, Amazon or Britbox (who will have their own licences for copying and streaming content on their platforms).

Here’s a Q&A to help you with some questions you might have:

Q. I’m working on a BBC television programme for one or more of the channels outlined above. BBC Studios will then sell it on to third parties (e.g. Netflix, Britbox, Amazon Prime, iTunes). Is that covered by the licence?

A. Yes, the licence includes distribution rights to third parties.

Q. What if the programme I’m working on is sold by another distributor? Is that also covered by the licence?

A. Yes, as long as the programme is being produced for use on the BBC’s public service television channels, the licence includes the right for all distributors to sell the programme to third parties, not just BBC Studios.

Q. We’re producing content for the BBC in the UK and we would like to use some of Soundgram’s and other MCPS Production Music, is that covered by the licence?

A. Yes, all tracks from Soundgram and MCPS Production Music is covered.

Q. Does it cover co-productions?

A. Yes, as long as the BBC has contributed at least 10% of the total production costs.

Q. Will promos made under the licence be cleared for use online (e.g. Facebook, YouTube etc.)?

A. Yes, promos containing Soundgram’s production music can be made available on social media and other online services worldwide.

Q. Anything else I should be aware of?

A. Where content made under the BBC’s (or ITV/NPO/RTL) blanket licence is sold or supplied to a third party service (e.g. Netflix, YouTube or Facebook), that third party should have a licence to cover any copies it makes, and any streams or downloads of the content it makes available.

Composer Johan van der Voet creates masterclass for Amsterdam Film School

This week Soundgram Post composer Johan van der Voet was invited by the Amsterdam Film School to teach a MASTERCLASS about film music composing in a special workshop in late November 2018.

In this seminar, musician and sound designer van der Voet talks about the different aspects of post-production sound design and film music. What choices can be made, among other things, in working with existing material, obtaining sync rights and creating a soundtrack? And what are the consequences of these choices? Johan will guide attendees through the art of the score with 20 years experience on dozens of movies.  Afterwards a Q&A section will allow participants to ask their own specific questions answered by a professional.

The class will take place Wednesday, 28 November from 19:30-22:00 at the Amsterdam Film School at Panamalaan 5 near the Eastern Docklands. Tickets can be bought at 


Johan is a composer and owner of SOUNDGRAM, a post-production company based in Utrecht. His large studio facilitates music composition, sound design, foley and ADR for film, TV, games and multi-media. His music is featured in libraries worldwide and has been used by Discovery Channel, NBC, MTV, the BBC and many others. As a composer he has worked on dozens of film productions, including the documentary ‘Wognum’ which was just awarded the Pathé Tuschinski Award during the 2018 Netherlands Film Festival.  He is currently working on the feature film ‘Label Me’ and a new score for the film ‘Club van 5’.


Johan van der Voet treedt af als voorzitter BCMM

De mede-oprichter van de BCMM (Beroepsvereniging Componisten Multi-Media) geeft zijn voorzittershamer over aan de huidige vice-voorzetter Hans Everling die deze rol zal vervullen tot er een nieuwe opvolger is gevonden.

“Na een periode van 10 jaar voorzitterschap is het moment gekomen om een stapje terug te doen en me volledig te focussen op mijn eigen werk als filmcomponist”, zegt Johan van der Voet, die sinds het ontstaan van de BCMM een belangrijke rol speelt binnen de vereniging.

“De afgelopen twee jaar is het aantal opdrachten gestaag toegenomen en inmiddels is mijn bedrijf Soundgram Post uitgegroeid tot een van de snelst groeiende studio’s in Utrecht.”

Van der Voet schreef onder andere de filmscores voor Nederlandse speelfilms als ‘Kristen’, ‘Het Verhoor’, en de documentaire ‘Wognum’ die nu te zien is op het Nederlands Film Festival. Momenteel werkt Johan aan de audio post-productie voor de speelfilm ‘Label Me’ van regisseur Anil Wagemans.

Er zijn in de afgelopen jaren bij BCMM meerdere successen gevierd, maar de belangrijkste overwinning is dat mediacomponisten inmiddels een serieuze gesprekspartner zijn bij onder meer Buma/Stemra in Nederland en de ECSA op Europees niveau.

Van der Voet blijft wel lid van de Raad van Rechthebbenden bij Buma/Stemra.
