The Magic of Christmas (suite)

A while back I posted a sneak peak of some festive production music I was working on. Well, in between upgrading to Snow Leopard; my Sibelius installation and battling with ReWire and Logic, I’ve managed to complete the suite cues.

Under the umbrella title of “The Magic of Christmas”, there are five parts to this suite. They are fashioned to work together with varying characterisations of a single audio identity. The target use is in channel ident branding and programme continuation links.

I really do not know what’s wrong with me at the moment. I seem to have swallowed a happy pill by mistake. I can’t stop writing jolly music at the moment. Could this cue get any more infectious? Featuring sleigh bells; horses; chimes; things that go ting and other things that flutter – it’s all in here. Is it all too gratuitous? Leave comments and let me know.

Enjoy the moment while it lasts:

I promise the next few posts are definitely going to feature compositions of much darker moods.

Yes, you heard me right. It is mid-August and the height of the British ‘summer’; I’m already thinking about Christmas. I’ve been preparing a suite of festive tracks with the intent of licensing them out as production music. The suite comes complete with a number of variations on a theme (lyrical, choral, jingle and vamp) and are being prepared to allow licensees to cut and loop segments and/or use complete tracks for their purposes. Here’s a short snippet from the suite.

I’ll be producing fully mastered production versions of this suite and will be ready for licensing shortly. Music Editors, please feel free to contact me if you are interested in this suite but have further specific requirements.
