60 Second Update - 12th Dec 22 - Guns & Roses and Corporate Music!

Updated: Feb 19, 2023

Hi everyone

This is the last update for 2022, with this week seeing me finish a coupe of projects, ready to start a fresh in January!

This week I will be:

  • Composing and producing a Guns & Roses style track for a client. This will mean channeling my inner Axel Rose for a few days. Then, in early January the client will come to the studio and record their vocal. I'm looking forward to that.

  • Composing and releasing some new 'corporate' style library music, ready to be sync licensed to video, film or podcasts. Being a Media Composer, there is not much 'Composer Kudos' in this style of music but it can be surprisingly difficult to do. It needs to be dynamic but the same volume across the track and be varied enough to be interesting but blend into the background. Getting this balance can be difficult. And of course, it all starts with the emotion of the song!

All exciting stuff.

What does your week hold….Let me know in the comments.

Have a great week and a wonderful Christmas.
