This GB soundtrack for Audible's "Stories That Surround You" Artist Profiles is the first of a series: featuring light melodies, live strings, pizzicatos, and soft synths to help support shots of amazing illustrations by the featured artist, Victo Ngai.
Check out and contribute to the Kickstarter page (Staff Pick) for this amazing project, which involves really original interview storytelling, sound design and accompanying art, which will be shown in galleries soon. The videos give you a small glimpse into the great minds of the project's creators, Travis Abels and Marc Girouard.
Musical contribution for the soundtrack, produced by Q Department, includes some original drum parts, rhodes, and intense synthetic backdrops up against this amazing cue for the opening title of The AICP Show: The Art & Technique of the American Commercial. Ah the age old question, is it gonna be you or them? Check out the video here.
Directed by documentary filmmaker Emily Sheskin, a story that a lot of musicians can relate to, especially concerning copyright. The short soundtrack, which comes during the middle and end, provides an ambient backdrop with electric guitars, bass, synths, etc, to underscore a melancholy yet positive message. See the film on Vimeo and "like" it! Check out Sheskin's other great work at www.emilysheskin.com.
In collaboration with Paris-based film/writing studio Bleu Noir, the soundtrack for short film "Good Old Things" features dark sound design elements and ambient sub-bass textures. The intense scenes shot during a foggy, secluded night in Coney Island also provided a good opportunity to bring together some violin, accordion, organ and the musical saw. See the film on Vimeo here!
