Up for auction is 90% of the songwriter's public performance royalties generated by a catalog of over 1,500 tracks of production music. Production music is a vital part of the television industry.

Many of the tracks in this catalog include alternate versions with differing instrumentals, which can increase the chance of placement by providing more options for music editors, allowing them to choose just the right balance of instruments that they need.
