NASHVILLE, TN (June 12, 2014) – Warner/Chappell Production Music, Warner Music Group’s production music arm, has created a new theme and package for the 2014 FIFA World Cup to be broadcast on ESPN. Warner/Chappell Production Music produced over 150 tracks overall at their state-of-the-art studios in Salt Lake City, UT. Featuring a modified theme from the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Warner/Chappell Production Music created new opens, bumpers, vamps and closers. In addition, world-renowned percussionist, Alex Acuna, provided all the ethnic percussion tracks at the legendary Ocean Way Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Wayne Bergeron added his virtuoso trumpet to select tracks.

 

This extensive package was produced by Warner/Chappell Production Music’s own Bryan Hofheins and Judd Maher and composed by Lisle Moore. This Production Team produced the original Theme package for ESPN’s coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which aired first for the South Africa Games.  They were ecstatic to adapt and add to the memorable theme music package for the Brazil World Cup stage. “What an honor and privilege it was to be a part of writing the music for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It’s exciting to think that the games will be broadcast all over the globe! Hopefully we captured the same excitement and grandeur that this beautiful game gives to its fans worldwide.” Bryan Hofheins echoed Lisle’s sentiment by saying, “It has been an honor and a thrill to create the music theme package for the world’s largest sporting event! We utilized the best talent in the world to bring their ‘A’ game, and everyone came through big time.“ Randy Wachtler, President & CEO, said, “I’m so incredibly proud of our Production Team for creating this amazing music that will be heard throughout the world.”

13 Keyboards – Film and Trailer Music in Concert – A New Initiative

A new trailer music concert is coming…from who, you may ask? None other than the initiator and musical director,Patrik Pietschmann. Founded in 2014, this music ensemble headed by Pietschmann will be working to bring scores from movies, games and trailers to the stage. Check out the official statement below:

“13 Keyboards – Film and Trailer Music in Concert” is a new concert format that combines music, innovation and technology in equal measure. The professional keyboard ensemble consisting of 13 highly skilled musicians was founded in 2014 at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts with the goal of bringing the very latest scores from movies, games and trailers to the stage.

With a repertoire of works by film music legend Hans Zimmer, the trailer music company “Two Steps From Hell”, etc. , this ensemble has mainly specialized in “hybrid scores”: a fusion of big orchestral sound, pop / rock elements and electronics. The use of the latest synth and sample technologies guarantees a concert event of the next generation.

Currently, two concerts are planned this year on 6th and 13th September which will take place in Frankfurt/ Main (Germany). The Ticket sale is already running. More detailed information can be obtained under www.13keyboards.com. There, we will soon list the exact concert program.

“Hearing is Believing” – HummingBird Music

HUMMINGBIRD PRODUCTIONS FOUNDER/CREATIVE DIRECTOR

BOB FARNSWORTH TO DELIVER “HEARING IS BELIEVING”

TEDXFRONTRANGE TALK IN COLORADO, MAY 22

Hummingbird Music offices president Bob FarnsworthNashville, TN, May 19, 2014 – Bob Farnsworth, CEO, Founder and Creative Director with Hummingbird Productions, one of America’s leading producers of original music and sound design for the advertising, entertainment, and multi-media industries, will be a featured guest speaker during an upcoming
TEDx FrontRange talk.

Farnsworth will deliver a talk entitled “Hearing is Believing” as a TEDxFrontRange talk in Loveland, Colorado, at 2:20 pm Mountain Time, on May 22nd. Based on the premise that “hearing, not seeing, is believing,” Farnsworth will demonstrate in his presentation various ways in which, in television advertising, the power of the music of one’s spoken voice, and the music heard underneath the spoken voice, is actually more powerful than the images an audience sees on a screen. If someone misses the tonality of a voiceover message, or misses the tonality of the music that accompanies a TV ad, then the musician supplying the aural accompaniment has missed his audience, no matter how much money someone has spent on the visuals.

Farnsworth’s talk will be a humorous yet poignant presentation. As most people know, TEDxTalks are designed to not only make interesting points about one’s own industry, but also to apply them to making the world around us a better place. The “Hearing Is Believing” talk will be a power packed eight minute presentation, leaving room afterward to discuss what will likely be a bit of a surprise to the members of the Colorado audience.

ABOUT BOB FARNSWORTH:

Bob Farnsworth graduated from Furman University in 1974, and was signed as a recording artist with ABC Records that same year. Providence kept him in Nashville, where he has spent the last 35 years building Hummingbird Productions. Farnsworth and Hummingbird have worked with innumerable and diverse artists, from Dolly Parton to Arlo Guthrie, from Ray Charles to Stevie Ray Vaughn; and with venues ranging from the Philadelphia Orchestra to the London Symphony, and organizations ranging from the United Way to the United Nations.

Farnsworth speaks and performs across the country about advertising and the power of sonic branding. In 2010, he appeared on “The Today Show” as an industry icon, and has also been a speaker at the annual American Ad Federation Conference. He tackles tough issues on advertising, branding and ROI with a sense of joy that is infectious and exciting.

IMMEDIATE MUSIC - TRAILER HEAD NU EPIQ - COVER ART Santa Monica, California (May 13, 2014) – Imperativa Records, the world’s leading independent record label specializing in the ‘Epic Music’ genre, presents IMMEDIATE’s genre-defining new album, Trailerhead: NU EPIQ, the fourth volume of the highly successful Trailerhead album series devoted to the power and emotion of epic orchestral music.

IMMEDIATE continue to evolve the sound of modern epic music, taking the genre in new musical directions and elevating the art form to new creative heights. Trailerhead: NU EPIQ will be available for streaming, digital download and CD on May 27.

NU EPIQ is IMMEDIATE’s biggest and boldest creative statement yet, featuring 19 original tracks of incredibly anthemic, emotional cinematic music that transcend the medium, existing independently as a legitimate form of artistic expression with a rapidly growing and fervent fanbase, as well as featuring in the latest trailers for Hollywood blockbuster movies.
NU EPIQ is produced by Yoav Goren and was recorded in the finest concert halls and studios worldwide, including the famed Abbey Road in London, and features performances by members of the London Symphony Orchestra and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Trailerhead: NU EPIQ will be released for streaming, digital download and CD on May 27 by Imperativa Records and distributed at North American retail through Entertainment One. For more information on IMMEDIATE and Imperativa Records, please visit www.imperativarecords.com.

Antti Martikainen Interview with Trailer Music Vibe

1011867_1439681269597185_1007577840_n

 

Meet a composer by the name of Antti Martikainen. He has composed a few trailer music albums thus far, one of which was Eternal Saga. He answered a few questions from TMV about his career as a composer and so on.

 Can you tell us about yourself and musical background?

I’m a Finnish guy, close to my 30’s. I have published music in my own name since late 2012, that’s about 1½ years now. I make epic, symphonic, folk, world, celtic, pirate, trailer, metal music etc. I started making music when I was about 14 years old, I bought a guitar and started making riffs. I recorded my first songs about ten years ago. They were mainly various types of metal songs, such as death, thrash and dark melodic metal and later symphonic metal. I didn’t like playing and recording stuff with guitar, so I made new songs very rarely. Then I found virtual instruments and sequencer programs and started playing around with them. I haven’t touched my guitars for a very long time and I’m making everything on computer these days. I have about 5 years of experience of FL studio and various virtual instrument libraries. I have no theoretical background in music, I just make stuff that sounds good to my ear.

What inspired you to become a composer?

I don’t really remember any specific moment, and becoming a composer is a long story. When I was younger I noticed that I have some good melodies playing in my head and that I needed some instrument to make them alive, so I chose the guitar. I always knew that I had some potential, but it took a long time to realize it.

What would you say your dream is as far as your musical career goes?

I don’t have big dreams, I’d just like to get a decent income from making music. My dreams actually lie somewhere else than in making music. At the moment, I can’t sustain myself with music only, but I’m still a bit surprised that I even make this much.

What are your musical inspirations?

I don’t listen to a lot of music, but Two Steps From Hell is the biggest single influence for my current musical direction. Then there are a lot of metal bands such as Ensiferum, Moonsorrow, Slayer, Children of Bodom and In Flames from where I got my inspiration in the early years.

I really like the fact that most of your tracks are over several minutes long. Is that a goal for you to try and stretch the compositions out or is it just how the work turns out?

Yeah, my newer songs are a bit long. I try to make my songs as “complete” as possible, and that means a lot of melodies, a lot of variation and a lot of movements. Usually that leads to long pieces. Of course the longer pieces require some planning, although most of the stuff just arises and evolves as I’m making the song. If I run out of imagination or it feels like there’s no use to continue the song any further, then I just finish it, or bury it. I still have some songs that are under 3 minutes long, and that’s just fine for more aggressive and fast pieces. But even the shorter pieces I make have multiple movements, melodies and some twists. I know I have a general trailer music vibe (pun intended) in my songs, but the aim is not to make easy listening music for trailers, but complete songs.

Are there any exciting projects in the pipelines that you can tell us about?

I have a lot of going on. Most of it isn’t related to music, as I’m studying game development and I have some game projects that I’m making, and that includes programming, 3D modeling, texture painting, all kinds of stuff. Concerning musical things, I’m soon releasing a bonus content album called Another Saga. It contains some stuff that was originally supposed to be a part of the Eternal Saga album, but because there’s over four hours of extra material it is wiser to release it as a stand-alone album. I’m also making a pirate-themed game soundtrack album. It will hopefully have about 20 tracks that are shorter and simpler than my usual tracks, but they’re supposed to be used in games, trailers and films. I’m doing it because I get a lot of queries about music for video games, but none of my songs really fit well to video games. And I have like ten of these soundtrack albums planned, so it’s exciting to see how many (if any) of them I will release. Then I have some new album stuff coming up, some huuuge songs exploring new exciting themes. And probably some commissions for games.
