Production Music Compositions Vol: One

Moon ocean of storms

New Production Music from Living Image Nov 14

This summer the team here have been turning our collective gaze toward fulfilling grand ambitions – it was time for us to crack on with some compositions for broadcast use and add to our production music portfolio.

RNIB Audio Logo Competition

Following on from our success in being shortlisted as one of four finalists in the RNIB audio logo competition, we have been seeking out new challenges and opportunities to better position what we do creatively. Competitions and awards offer a great way to network and a chance to work to brief, not least the potential of placing well or even winning and having your music shared further afield.

Publisher, Animator, Film Maker? Need Original Music?

Amidst the cut and thrust of audio award ferreting, we are also seeking to establish some lasting professional relationships with a like-minded network of collaborators. Specifically we’re looking to partner with publishers, filmmakers, animators and videographers who might just be looking for a team like ours. We love to get stuck into projects, if you or someone you know falls into these categories and you like what you hear, then please contact the team.

Here are three tracks which we’ve put together which fall under the production music umbrella. We have composed them all with a loose brief in mind and wanted to focus mainly on an atmospheric, emotional narrative; where the various sections could be easily developed into extended beds and adapted pieces of audio.

BBC Wild Mission Pitch: Siberian Tiger

These short compositions were part of an extended piece that we had put together back in 2013. The music was written for an open pitch requesting submissions for the BBC natural history ‘Wild Mission’ mini-series.

Composing the Music to Footage

The brief outlined which three moods the music was required to evoke. We uncovered some old BBC natural history footage of a hunting tiger that followed the scheme and had space for the various vibe. We then researched the indigenous folk music of tribes and cultures in the Siberia region to get a bead on the sound palettes we wanted to use.

By chance, there also happened to be an old, dusty balalaika in the studio that had been knocking around for years just waiting to be recorded; perfect! With all those rich sonics and instruments in mind we then set about composing the music to the footage, et voila!
