In that role, he co-produced and collaborated on several epic hybrid film trailer albums with Riptide composers Cliff Lin, Daniel Lenz, John Mattox, Kathie Talbot, and others. Recent Riptide trailer music credits in which Silver was involved include music placements within the trailers for “Noah.”, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and “Iron Man 3” along with global and national commercials for TRESemmé, Apple iPad and Miller Lite.

The panel, entitled, “Courting Your Fans – How to Make the Romance Last,” andmoderated by Section 101 President Liz Leahy, covered topics such as: “What tools are out there for established artists?

Antti Martikainen – Eternal Saga (Epic Trailer Music Album)

cover73jp5 Wow..that’s literally the first word that came out of my mouth when I heard the first track on the trailer music album Eternal Saga. Each track is over several minutes in length, so that means you get to be immersed in epic goodness, longer than only a few minutes. It’s just so wonderfully done and blended by Antti, my jaw hit the floor.

For all of the wealth and dearth of composer talent that’s abundant in the trailer music world, this is a very nice gem to pack into that back pocket of yours on the treasure hunt, so to speak.

You can find the album on Bandcamp and be sure to follow him on Facebook.

LEXUS AND THE HIT HOUSE MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER

LEXUS AND THE HIT HOUSE MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER:

LUXURY AUTO MAKER AND TOP MUSIC COMPANY ARE A

MATCH MADE IN BRAND MARKETING HEAVEN

Los Angeles, CA, January 27, 2014—Top music production company The Hit House has recently created and produced original music for two high-profile Lexus projects. Sally House, Executive Producer at The Hit House, made the announcement.

2015-Lexus-RC-F-front-three-quarters-03The Hit House provided original music and sound design for a video promoting the launch of the Lexus 2015 RC F. That video made its debut during the just concluded 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The video is the first entry seen here:

Entitled “From the Asphalt Up,” the majestic tune, recorded by a full orchestra, blends an operatic theme against pounding drums in a highly cinematic presentation.

Lexus-InstafilmAdditionally, The Hit House recently provided the song “Hefe” to Lexus’s #LexusInstaFilm promotional project. “Hefe” is a powerfully, pulsating tune in a hypnotic theme featuring the strong use of percussive instruments.

The #LexusInstaFilm video was cited by Luxurydaily.com as one of the Top 10 Luxury Brand social videos of 2013.

Toyota Motor Corp.’s Lexus promoted the 2014 IS vehicle with the collaboratively created, stop-motion Instagram film #LexusInstaFilm, drawing on the perspectives of 212 fans to show the vehicle in a range of angles and tones.

Under the orchestration of a directorial team during Instagram’s #WorldwideInstameet, car enthusiasts and Instagram users from a variety of backgrounds blended their personalities in a film that colorfully animated a 2014 Lexus IS F Sport in action. The filming technique permitted a wide range of views, so the vehicle appeared in a natural setting.

By leveraging Instagram in this unifying fashion, Lexus’s goal was to grab the attention of a younger demographic and potentially trigger more collaborative, stop-motion films. Jacob Rosenberg and the Bandito Brothers directed the film, which is the third entry seen here:

1544404_214719945383148_1683710330_aA new trailer music library? Well, not exactly but, trailer music libraries as well as up and coming composers can all benefit from this.  We have many great musical tracks in recent times, and alot of those works can be attributed to the use of sound libraries along with virtual instruments.

Aria Sounds is a  recently established company which produces composition tools, which enable these to be made more accessible to the youngest of composers. Recently, they’ve released three new instrument tools: a solo Cello, classical guitar and french horn. A listener is able to toggle settings on their home page.
