TV Music

HMV commercial

Blimey, it’s the remix that refuses to die.

Almost a year after it was first out, here’s the Clique Remix of Lana Del Rey’s Video games backing an HMV TV spot.

There’s something almost profound about this lament to doomed romance being used as a backing to an effort to sell off surplus stock of the Playstation 3 Spider-Man game. My early 20s in a nutshell right there. Long story.

Babestation X (TV music)

Am currently doing a bunch of work for the people at Cellcast UK on their interactive TV stuff. Babestation X is one of their new channels; I’m sure you can imagine the kind of thing it is. Or research it, according to taste.

The brief was something with a neon-y, electronic feel, and I had to deliver idents, background music, and various stings and snippets. This is the full ten-minute piece from which all those things were derived.

Had a great time doing some properly old school synth programming; with the exception of the drums, all these sounds were built from scratch, no presets used at all.

Main synth was Native Instruments Massive. The heavily stereo panned riff was constructed in Cakewalk’s z3ta+ 2.

Ink’d (TV music)

This was for a Cellcast show focussing, on, um, ladies with tattoos. It wasn’t a documentary.

Anyway, the brief was to provide some fairly punky metal high BPM stuff for a short theme, and something longer and more meandering for background music.

Quite rare to get the opportunity to do such straight up guitar / bass / drums music, so I enjoyed working on this a lot.
