'heartaches' produced for oldnfunky
The song 'Heartaches' was written by Steve McLoone & Kyle Wood & B. O'Brien. It features an unforgettable guitar solo by Deevo, who we had the honor to record on this track. 'Heartaches; is unique for its beginning. It starts out in an symphony hall ambiance with the orchestra tuning up, while singer Steve plays some open guitar chords. Both sound streams come finally together and launch into the beat. Bands such as ELO and the Beatles used similar sound effects much to their advantage. The artist eventually picked the song as the opening song for his album 'Let's Go - What?'. Steve is an amazing and energetic artist from Waseca and was great to collaborate with. His website is at www.oldnfunky.com.
'Song for henry' produced for simon husbands
'Song for Henry' is composed and sung by Simon Husbands and is dedicated to his son Henry. Simon approached DigitalSymphonix with the song idea and asked to design a string arrangement that accompanies his delicate melody, and also introduce full dynamic, orchestral elements. Such orchestration was commonplace for Sinatra and the arrangements written for his voice. The challenge was to keep the song's fragile nature, while moving it along with strings and woodwinds, not overshadowing the meaningful lyrics and Simon's voice. The outcome speaks for itself. Simon Husbands has extensively toured the U.S. when he was engaged with Blue Train, a rock group from Nottingham, England. Their song 'All I Need Is You' became a U.S. top 40 hit in 1991 and was featured on Baywatch. Simon is currently working on a song collection that will be released in the future. We are all looking forward to hearing the album when it is ready.
'Saying Goodbye' produced for IPR
I wrote the soundtrack for a 'Before Sunrise' clip as an assignment during the film music class instructed by Bob Jenkins. He was an excellent teacher, and reminded us that film music must express what the visual part alone cannot. In this particular scene, a couple has met in Vienna for just one day and fell in love. The next morning, both have to move on again, and so they say goodbye. My soundtrack had the goal of emotionally emphasizing this feeling within the context of the city Vienna, which so rich in its musical heritage and art understanding. As the clip goes on, it shows all the locations where the couple has been the day before. The music, as the locations pass by, brings back the emotional residue of their talks, discussions, and laughter. It seems that Vienna is saying goodbye as well in its own way, with its own notes, but without words. I have personally been dozens of times to Vienna, even to most of the shown places. Vienna emits a flair of melancholy, being the heart of a lost empire now dissolved into many countries. However, the feeling prevails that something is to be found in this romantic city, as long as you look closely and are in no rush.
'you say it best when you say nothing at all' produced for Mrs & mr Hiel
The song 'You say it best when you say nothing at all', written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz, was picked by Thusuong and Rod as their wedding song. Having heard the version by Ronan Keating from the movie 'Notting Hill' with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, their music vision was to transform it into a R&B version that is danceable, fun, and groovy. Vocalist Steve McLoone was hired to initially stick to the original feel, then transform it into a smoking and funky R&B song. The wedding couple was included in the music production, and gave great feedback. In the end, an everlasting music moment was created that means a lot to anyone that attended their wedding. People danced to it, the couple was very happy, a real success for all.
'turn it down' produced for oldnfunky
The song 'Turn it down' was written by Kyle Wood, Steve McLoone & M. Gasparini. It presented an opportunity to write a substantial string arrangement for a soul song, which carries the tune until the end. The fabric of this song consists of electronic tracks mixed with a basic R&B feel, which makes the song so delicate. Steve's voice reaches great emotional heights due to the simple foundation of the tune. The background vocals stand out clear and bright and give the composition a clear definition. By accident, this song was arranged very quickly and by leaving out more than adding. Sometimes the fast and efficient approach yields the most memorable results.
'the news' produced for an undisclosed client
A recent project has led DigitalSymphonix to composing a CNN-style broadcast news theme for radio and television. An entire music suite was composed that comprises of a short initial news theme, and extended segment theme, a very dynamic and rock 'n roll style sports theme, as well as a smooth weather theme that finalizes the suite harmonically and structurally. The overarching approach was along the lines of standard news banners, as well as compositions used for Olympic Games. The result carries an 'American' sound, and is perfect for any news agency.
'foot prints' produced for simon husbands
The song 'Foot Prints' was written by Simon Husbands and is dedicated to his father. We were honored to come up with an orchestral arrangement for this beautiful ballad. Adding an Irish touch to this piece seemed appropriate, given the orchestration. Amy Shaw was recorded on flute.
'thank you' produced for oldnfunky
The song 'Thank you, it's all good' was composed by Kyle Wood & Steve McLoone. This song turned into a crazy mix of latin and techno beats, which drives the song quite nicely. Steve is on percussion, which fuels the tune even more. It is a great dance mix for parties and is mostly instrumental.
