Every note, every bar, every crescendo, our compositions are created just for you and intended to help you tell your story better.
Stories are our business and our passion. Every great myth or folktale reveals something wonderful and interesting about our shared humanity but too often is it that we forget to include a critical ingredient in our stories: sound. A ghost story told on a camping trip isn’t just the delivery of words to the ears of your fellow campers, it is the crackling campfire, the hooting owl, the rustling leaves in the night breeze – it is the entire environment within which you are telling the story. This is why our stories never feature narration on its own and always include custom music composition and soundscaping.
In the beginning it looks like careful consideration and research, and in the end it sounds like the common thread running through your story, bounding it together and creating a consistent experience. The start of any custom music composition is a conversation about your story and what it’s intended to communicate to the audience. After we understand your story’s intent, we start researching its various elements: where did it come from? Does it require specific instruments? Are there any cultural influences that could be included? If so, do those influences dictate things like tone, tempo, or pitch? In addition to these are a bevvy of other considerations that help us to feel prepared to actually begin creating your custom music composition.
All compositions are created by our in-house composer Nico Vettese at our Yorkshire studio in England. Nico works primarily in Apple Logic Pro X and has at his disposal hundreds of virtual instruments and their variations, substantial training in music theory, and years of experience helping people just like you tell their stories with more authenticity and depth. Also involved in the process are the audio engineers located in the US at our headquarters studio in Florida.
There is no denying that a story is powerful, but a story accompanied by the sounds of the world it creates in the listener’s mind is more powerful still. Let us help you take your story to the next level by creating a custom music composition for you. Use the form below to reach out to us, we generally respond within 24-hours.
Our foray into soundscaping as a professional service was creating background music for our LMAW podcast. This eventually lead to custom music composition.
Things you’re passionate about are often addictive, and though we weren’t quite ready to offer our skills as a service, we knew, after a year or so, that we were getting better. So we made a couple of soundtracks.
After years of practice and study, we began to produce music that was more and more complex. It was inevitable that we would start building albums that could provide a common theme for larger projects.
