Bespoke Composition for Warner Hotels

For this project, we were asked to write a piece based on the idea of coming home from a different location.

After writing an Italian style Piazza for guitar, we composed a theme for Warner which features at the end, consisting of classical strings played in an English Country Garden style.

Bespoke piano and a hint of strings for a touching film advertising Amazon’s ‘Echo Spot’

This heartfelt spot follows the separation and subsequent reunion of a young child and his piglet friend.

Rather fortuitously, this brief landed on our desks just before our upright piano was due to be tuned. We were able to utilise these imperfections and turn them into an asset, connecting the emotive story with the human feel of a slightly imperfect acoustic instrument. It was a perfect fit for the tone of the ad, and we recorded it in as much detail as possible.

Working with the wonderful Hollie at CORD, we carefully crafted a piece which was earnest and child-like in simplicity, whilst driving the story forward and feeling rich in harmony and timbre.

Ariel - Beat The Mud

We were asked to create a combined music composition and sound design piece for this large scale ad for Ariel.

We needed to create a track full of ups and downs, with a propulsive, heart-pounding rhythm.

Short film commissioned by Cartoon Network as part of a series of inspiring films for children

A Whale’s Tale was launched by Hope Works on World Children’s Day as one of twelve films designed to inspire the values of kindness, tolerance and understanding in children around the world.

Airing on TV channels globally, the films were all made by big names in children’s broadcasting, from DreamWorks to Disney, and each one was created to be real and relevant across borders and cultures.

This particular film focuses on our human responsibility for the environment, specifically on the issue of plastic and its effect on the oceans.

Our role was to score the story of how the two worlds discover the same problem and work to resolve it, giving each scene and character a unique personality and feel.

Telling the tale musically required bringing together a range of instrumentation, both organic and synthesised, to underpin a story that is both light-hearted and funny at times, whilst also being earnest and thought-provoking.

Choir recording for Sainsbury’s 2018 Christmas campaign

“Hi there, can you possibly organise a choir of 14 school kids for next week?” “Why, yes, yes we most definitely can.”

We were asked to provide the sound of Sainsbury’s Christmas Choir and were immensely excited to be involved in this epic project. To be able to already have connections and contacts to organise a choir in the space of 5 days is testament to how collaborative our studios are.

A massive shout out to Danny from Class Dynamix, without whom this probably wouldn’t have happened. And huge thanks to Laurence from String & Tins who travelled from London to Leeds to record some atmos, sound design and pick-ups.

A light-hearted advert for Amazon Prime that answers the question - what’s the consequence of a great show that has a lasting impact?

We wrote a bespoke composition to accompany this advert, which posits how Prime series ‘Outlander’ could stay with you, well after you’ve switched off the tele/tablet/phone/smart fridge/watching device of choice.

We composed a piece of rising tension and drama to reflect growing passion as our protagonist becomes entwined by watching each episode. Meanwhile, our music prepares to take flight into the romantic stratosphere, but a knock on the door brings our characters crashing back down to reality. Here, we resolved to cut the music at the most in-opportune moment to emphasise the joke.

Collaborating with the ever-fantastic Tom Stanford of Wake The Town, it was a great honour to be a part of this brilliant campaign, voted #2 of the top fifteen film ads of 2018 by Campaign magazine.

We are so privileged to be a part of it and to be really honest, if you get a chance, just visit the site, it will do way more than we can explain here.

Following on from the previous spot we worked on for Danimals, this one saw our theme make a comeback, but this time transitioning into a composition that had to tell a rather beautifully bizarre story…

Bespoke music composition for BT Sport’s coverage of the 2018 Speedway season.

Picture the scene. Riders fly around a dirt oval at a blistering pace, bikes almost horizontal, without any brakes to fall back on. You’re gonna need the right music to set the mood.

As coverage of the 2018 Speedway season kicks off on BT Sport, our bespoke theme will be used as its musical identity.

Featuring punchy drums, rolling synth arpeggios and a huge but fitting wallop at the end, our title theme was later expanded into a sonic toolkit for use over longer formatted content. A great project all round and an absolute pleasure to work with the fantastic team at BT Sport.

Bespoke music and sound design for Covergirl’s #IAmWhatIMakeUp campaign, in collaboration with Woodwork Music

The spot features fitness trainer Massy Arias, whose ‘me-time’ is all about controlled strength, introverted energy, and absolute focus. So the versatility and flow of a raw and close-miked cello was perfect for this film’s music, accentuating her power and poise, and providing a beautiful balance of both grit and serenity.

We also created the sound design in-house, in tandem with the music composition. It combines the raw and real sounds of training in a gym with tailored hyperreal effects to build a visceral and intimate atmosphere.

Big thanks to Rose Gallaway for performing the cello parts to the film with such incredible deftness and skill.

Bespoke French-language song for Maille TV spot

As a nod to Maille’s heritage, this film takes the grainy quality of classic French cooking and gives it a twist of modern flair.

We took the same approach with the songwriting and production, harking back to the irreverent style of 60s French pop and blending it with some new flavours… 

The track was written in collaboration with Brussels-based singer Esra Tasasiz, whose lyrical and vocal contributions played a central role in the success of the project.

Arrangement, performance and mix of Clair De Lune (Claude Debussy) for Sky Cinema’s Easter promo

Every once in a while a project will come along that re-connects our team with a piece of music we had forgotten how much we loved.

The challenge with this piece of work was twofold, firstly arranging, performing and then editing a composition as well known as Clair De Lune is both an honour and a risk and secondly, with the timescales we had, the concept of an audio recording wasn’t possible so we had to rely on MIDI software instruments to re-create a particular sound as faithfully as we could.

Huge thanks must go to Ewan Gilford, our performer and also Will from the WMP team who handled the mastery of the edit and the mix.

Bespoke arrangement and production as part of an Nike’s online mega-spot

We were honoured and hugely excited to be the only bespoke part of the soundtrack for this epic promo film from Nike.

We were asked, pretty late on in the day, to be involved in pitching for the ice hockey scene (01:41 - 01:50). The client wasn’t sure what song they wanted to re-work so we ended up creating three different options, and Skepta’s “Shutdown” won the day. A huge film, huge commercial syncs and a huge stir that’s been caused since the films release!

Ad spot for the annual DFS Winter Sale, featuring the characters from Aardman Animations’ new feature film ‘Early Man’

It had been a bit of a bucket-list dream of ours to compose the music for an Aardman animation, so to be part of this unique film was a very special way to mark the new year.

Beginning with primitive percussion and ending with the bliss of lush strings, we follow Dug and his friends as they go on their prehistoric search for true comfort.

The ad is currently showing on TV and in cinemas, and Early Man is due for UK release on 26 January 2018 AD.

Worldwide TVC for Lacoste Pour Femme perfume, accompanied by a commercial single release.

This project somewhat flipped the usual process of syncing a commercial track to an ad on its head. Instead of starting with a finished full-length track and cutting it down to fit the ad, we began by writing the song to the picture, reimagined for the shorter 15-second version and afterwards extended it into a 3-minute single for commercial release. Whilst still maintaining a strong continuity between the different versions, this process allowed each one to be subtly different and crafted uniquely to its purpose.

By the time we were approached to write for the ad, the directors had tried a lot of existing tracks on the film, none of which were quite striking the balance they were looking for. They wanted the music to reflect the personality of the protagonist, just as the film was doing; juxtaposing her vulnerable and introspective side with her unexpected and daring side. By providing our bespoke approach we were able to find that balance right off the bat and create a track that helped to tell the story of the visuals rather than one that was trying to tell a story of its own.

As ever there was strong in-house WMP collaboration on this (at one point the lyrics, harmony and topline were being written in one room, and the beats were simultaneously being produced in another, with ideas flying back and forth) but we also collaborated closely with Cavendish Music throughout the project. Cavendish not only supervised the project and developed the release strategy for the single, but it was also they who brought in London-based artist LL to provide the final vocals, which we recorded at their studio in King’s Cross. Truly a team effort.

The single Circles is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify, published by Cavendish Music.

Re-brand campaign for Thomson Holidays’ name-change to TUI

We were briefed by Woodwork Music to produce an arrangement of the classic R&B track ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Rufus And Chaka Khan, with a nod to the style of the hit musical La La Land — which we did with as much reverence for both as we could muster! Our arrangement was then used on the set of the ad shoot for the dancers and leading lady to perform to.

The song was arranged, orchestrated and produced in-house at WMP, and was sung by the incredible Alice Higgins, who was directed to perform her vocals as if she was the one being breathlessly lifted and twirled through a magical journey of a holiday experience (which she did with outstanding skill and stamina).

As part of the campaign we also went on to arrange and produce a full-length version of the song for non-broadcast usage, as well additional original music in the same style for further TV usage elsewhere.

The ad first aired in October 2017 on every major UK TV station, and reached 63% of the UK adult population within a fortnight. TUI also agreed a 12-month sponsorship of the whole Sky One channel using a series of idents which also featured the track.

Bespoke theme and score for the original comedy Bobby & Harriet Get Married

We were absolutely honoured to work with VICE on the title theme, bumpers and underscore for this show, which was one of the first to be aired on VICELAND.

Bobby Mair and Harriet Kemsley are a real-life couple. They’re also both real-life stand-up comedians – not pretend, make-believe ones – and the stars of a new VICELAND show, Bobby and Harriet Get Married.

The show is exactly what it sounds like, following Bobby and Harriet – plus a load of their comedy world friends, like Katherine Ryan and Romesh Ranganathan – as they try to stay together long enough to say, “I do.” It’s very funny and you should watch it – but don’t just take that from us; watch the trailer so you can get a taste of what to expect.

Working with our long time partner-in-crime Peter Darling was a breeze as always, and the troubadourian style was right up his street.

We created a guitar-driven arrangement with building strings, written to marry a sense of emotion and care with one of strength and power.

A series of adverts for Dove Men Australia as part of the international ‘Strength To Care’ campaign, featuring Australian rugby player David Pocock.

As soon as we saw the initial edits we knew that this would be a special project, and something that demanded something special from the soundtrack to complement David Pocock’s awesome personality and passion. After researching his story and discovering the things he stands for and how strongly he feels about them, we used this as a launchpad to begin coming up with thematic ideas.

We knew that getting the right tone would be essential, capturing the sensitivity and strength at the same time. Using piano as the focus of the composition, we added strings and subtle synths to build and grow the texture, keeping the piece strong but restrained.

This was one of those incredibly powerful projects where the films are good, the story is good, the sync supervisor is awesome and the agency are fully on board, enthusiastic and excited with the music direction from a very early stage. We’re pretty sure these are some of the reasons that this series of films went on to win two Spikes Asia awards!

A collaborative recording project with Cavendish Music to create a sample library of epic drums, percussion and metals that would form the foundation of a new library album.

The idea for Swagger came about whilst we were talking with our friends at Cavendish about potential album concepts, and was born out of a simple desire to find a huge room with a great reverb sound and then use the character of that space as the signature sound of an album.

Recording took place in Leeds at the stunning Left Bank Centre, an old church building that is now used as events space. The massive stone columns and arched roof provided an amazing setting for the session, in looks as well as sound. The sounds recorded included Japanese taikos, military snares, full drum kit and metal objects ranging from a rubbish bin to a salad bowl.

Cavendish then took these recordings and created the Swagger sample pack that went out to all of the commissioned composers as part of the album brief. Some of WMP’s tracks that were featured include the riff heavy ‘Bite Hard’ and the cinematic ‘Join Us’. The full album is being released on the 2nd of May 2016.

The heart warming short film directed by Oscar nominated Lucy Walker shows people experiencing the app for the first time. The film is part of Listerine’s new ‘Advanced White’ campaign and quickly went viral on social media when it was launched in August 2015.

WMP were asked to compose a simple emotive piano piece that would accompany this thought provoking film. ‘The Smile Detector App’ is available to download.

Title theme for Sky Living’s first real-life drama series.

We were were asked to write the music for the opening titles of new reality drama Desi Rascals, from the director of Bend It Like Beckham and the creator of The Only Way Is Essex.

The show follows the lives of a multi-generational cast within the British Asian community in West London and is shot only a matter of days before being broadcast. It is a step up from other reality dramas in that it not only features the usual 20-somethings but also their parents, and this inter-generational dynamic helps to portray a wider perspective on what it means to be British and Asian as times and values change.

Bespoke pop track for Wrigley’s ‘Bin It!’ litter awareness campaign.

We were commissioned to write and produce a song that would form the basis of an animated film encouraging 7-11 year olds to dispose of their litter responsibly and ‘love where they live’.

Wrigley asked us to write lyrics that would clearly communicate the campaign’s specific key messages, whilst also creating litter-based scenarios that could be illustrated visually by the animation in a fun and humorous way. Although we carefully tailored the song to children of primary school age, we think viewers of all ages may also find this song going ‘round their heads when they’re wondering what to do with that used food wrapper…

“All you’ve got to do is bin it!”

Worldwide broadcast campaign for Unilever and Cif.

WMP were commissioned by Big Sync and DLKW Lowe to create the magical soundtrack to a series of television spots for Cif, including an original ‘Cif Theme’.

There are three elements to the main orchestral theme… a suspenseful, tension-building opening that is different for each version of the advert, moving into a crescendo when we first see the Cif product, and then flowing into the main Cif Theme for the ending.

With an excellent voiceover by Michael Gambon and brilliant animation directed by Jamie Lancaster at The Mill+, we really wanted to add to the films by putting across the charm, elegance and make-believe of the animation.

An immersive digital theatre installation for the new ‘Hearts Of Oak’ gallery at Chatham Historic Dockyard.

The exhibition is a 30-minute historical reconstruction set in 1806, which retells the story of the construction of wooden-hulled sail-powered warships at the dockyard.

We created the atmospheric audio for 15 individual spaces, which the the gallery visitors are guided through by the story’s characters. The sound design we produced enhances the visual effects to help set the scene in the various areas of the busy dockyard and the surrounding streets.

We also provided creative treatments for two battle sequences, in which British naval tactics are explained, and a character vividly recounts the horrors of war at sea.

Bespoke piano and a hint of strings for a touching film advertising Amazon’s ‘Echo Spot’

This heartfelt spot follows the separation and subsequent reunion of a young child and his piglet friend.

Rather fortuitously, this brief landed on our desks just before our upright piano was due to be tuned. We were able to utilise these imperfections and turn them into an asset, connecting the emotive story with the human feel of a slightly imperfect acoustic instrument. It was a perfect fit for the tone of the ad, and we recorded it in as much detail as possible.

Working with the wonderful Hollie at CORD, we carefully crafted a piece which was earnest and child-like in simplicity, whilst driving the story forward and feeling rich in harmony and timbre.

Short film commissioned by Cartoon Network as part of a series of inspiring films for children

A Whale’s Tale was launched by Hope Works on World Children’s Day as one of twelve films designed to inspire the values of kindness, tolerance and understanding in children around the world.

Airing on TV channels globally, the films were all made by big names in children’s broadcasting, from DreamWorks to Disney, and each one was created to be real and relevant across borders and cultures.

This particular film focuses on our human responsibility for the environment, specifically on the issue of plastic and its effect on the oceans.

Our role was to score the story of how the two worlds discover the same problem and work to resolve it, giving each scene and character a unique personality and feel.

Telling the tale musically required bringing together a range of instrumentation, both organic and synthesised, to underpin a story that is both light-hearted and funny at times, whilst also being earnest and thought-provoking.

A light-hearted advert for Amazon Prime that answers the question - what’s the consequence of a great show that has a lasting impact?

We wrote a bespoke composition to accompany this advert, which posits how Prime series ‘Outlander’ could stay with you, well after you’ve switched off the tele/tablet/phone/smart fridge/watching device of choice.

We composed a piece of rising tension and drama to reflect growing passion as our protagonist becomes entwined by watching each episode. Meanwhile, our music prepares to take flight into the romantic stratosphere, but a knock on the door brings our characters crashing back down to reality. Here, we resolved to cut the music at the most in-opportune moment to emphasise the joke.

Collaborating with the ever-fantastic Tom Stanford of Wake The Town, it was a great honour to be a part of this brilliant campaign, voted #2 of the top fifteen film ads of 2018 by Campaign magazine.

Bespoke music and sound design for Covergirl’s #IAmWhatIMakeUp campaign, in collaboration with Woodwork Music

The spot features fitness trainer Massy Arias, whose ‘me-time’ is all about controlled strength, introverted energy, and absolute focus. So the versatility and flow of a raw and close-miked cello was perfect for this film’s music, accentuating her power and poise, and providing a beautiful balance of both grit and serenity.

We also created the sound design in-house, in tandem with the music composition. It combines the raw and real sounds of training in a gym with tailored hyperreal effects to build a visceral and intimate atmosphere.

Arrangement, performance and mix of Clair De Lune (Claude Debussy) for Sky Cinema’s Easter promo

Every once in a while a project will come along that re-connects our team with a piece of music we had forgotten how much we loved.

The challenge with this piece of work was twofold, firstly arranging, performing and then editing a composition as well known as Clair De Lune is both an honour and a risk and secondly, with the timescales we had, the concept of an audio recording wasn’t possible so we had to rely on MIDI software instruments to re-create a particular sound as faithfully as we could.

Worldwide TVC for Lacoste Pour Femme perfume, accompanied by a commercial single release.

This project somewhat flipped the usual process of syncing a commercial track to an ad on its head. Instead of starting with a finished full-length track and cutting it down to fit the ad, we began by writing the song to the picture, reimagined for the shorter 15-second version and afterwards extended it into a 3-minute single for commercial release. Whilst still maintaining a strong continuity between the different versions, this process allowed each one to be subtly different and crafted uniquely to its purpose.

By the time we were approached to write for the ad, the directors had tried a lot of existing tracks on the film, none of which were quite striking the balance they were looking for. They wanted the music to reflect the personality of the protagonist, just as the film was doing; juxtaposing her vulnerable and introspective side with her unexpected and daring side. By providing our bespoke approach we were able to find that balance right off the bat and create a track that helped to tell the story of the visuals rather than one that was trying to tell a story of its own.

As ever there was strong in-house WMP collaboration on this (at one point the lyrics, harmony and topline were being written in one room, and the beats were simultaneously being produced in another, with ideas flying back and forth) but we also collaborated closely with Cavendish Music throughout the project. Cavendish not only supervised the project and developed the release strategy for the single, but it was also they who brought in London-based artist LL to provide the final vocals, which we recorded at their studio in King’s Cross. Truly a team effort.

The single Circles is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify, published by Cavendish Music.

Re-brand campaign for Thomson Holidays’ name-change to TUI

We were briefed by Woodwork Music to produce an arrangement of the classic R&B track ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Rufus And Chaka Khan, with a nod to the style of the hit musical La La Land — which we did with as much reverence for both as we could muster! Our arrangement was then used on the set of the ad shoot for the dancers and leading lady to perform to.

The song was arranged, orchestrated and produced in-house at WMP, and was sung by the incredible Alice Higgins, who was directed to perform her vocals as if she was the one being breathlessly lifted and twirled through a magical journey of a holiday experience (which she did with outstanding skill and stamina).

As part of the campaign we also went on to arrange and produce a full-length version of the song for non-broadcast usage, as well additional original music in the same style for further TV usage elsewhere.

The ad first aired in October 2017 on every major UK TV station, and reached 63% of the UK adult population within a fortnight. TUI also agreed a 12-month sponsorship of the whole Sky One channel using a series of idents which also featured the track.

Bespoke theme and score for the original comedy Bobby & Harriet Get Married

We were absolutely honoured to work with VICE on the title theme, bumpers and underscore for this show, which was one of the first to be aired on VICELAND.

Bobby Mair and Harriet Kemsley are a real-life couple. They’re also both real-life stand-up comedians – not pretend, make-believe ones – and the stars of a new VICELAND show, Bobby and Harriet Get Married.

The show is exactly what it sounds like, following Bobby and Harriet – plus a load of their comedy world friends, like Katherine Ryan and Romesh Ranganathan – as they try to stay together long enough to say, “I do.” It’s very funny and you should watch it – but don’t just take that from us; watch the trailer so you can get a taste of what to expect.

We adored the standard of the animation (kudos to Studio Local) and really wanted to create a soundtrack that would complement the quality of the picture. Following the pattern of orchestral based compositions, we created a soundtrack that was dramatic, fun but not too cartoony in flavour.

Music composition for Dove Men+Care; part of their ‘Care Makes A Man Stronger’ campaign

We were challenged to create the soundtrack to a film that would juxtapose winning moments in sport with caring moments by the same men, where they went above and beyond to help others, particularly their opponents.

The key was to create something that was positive and uplifting but also drove the emotion that’s synonymous with sport.

We created a guitar-driven arrangement with building strings, written to marry a sense of emotion and care with one of strength and power.

Bespoke Music Composition for Sky Variety

We were asked to create a cool, sophisticated and yet understated composition for this Sky Variety and Kids Bundle spot with the wonderful Leland Music. We knew straight away that the only way we were going to achieve this was by making the most of the huge network of talented session musicians based here in Leeds.

Having the space to record live musicians makes such a huge difference to our ability to be able to collaborate and create unique and high quality compositions.

A series of online promos/tutorials for Haig Club and British GQ.

We have been working with Miika for a number of years and every time we do we get the chance to create a soundtrack to something that is exciting, beautifully shot and edited and for great brands too. This is no exception.

With a series of films showcasing the detail, skill and intricate nature of each cocktail, Haig were looking for a piece of music that was similar in style to past campaigns but that harnessed power and grit, and “No Sweat” proved to be the perfect choice.

Incidentally, we also loved making this cocktail at our Christmas party!

Broadcast promo for Sky Cinema’s 2017 Oscars season.

It was an honour to be asked by SATV to create a bespoke piece to accompany their evocative, beautiful edit of Oscar-winning movies.

We focused on emotional piano and strings as well as a drive and motivation throughout the composition that adds to the tension.

What made this project so great to work on, and ultimately the final edit so powerful, was that the editors had an early version of our piece to edit to.

On-demand and online ad for SouthEastern Railway, promoting their off-peak rail fares.

We we approached by director Nicholas Bentley to provide a full audio treatment for this project, including music composition, sound design, voiceover and mix. The overall brief was to tie together all the possibilities that ‘going off-peak’ can afford in a way that felt natural and journey-like.

For the voiceover, we collaborated with Leeds-based spoken word artist Katie Dowds, who brought her effortless style to the piece. The music and sound design were then crafted to underpin everything, subtly resembling the gathering momentum of a train without being obvious or clichéd.

Online and on-demand ad for Wilkinson Sword Hydro.

The Hydro razor first featured in one-to-one combat with a lube-strip razor in a Superbowl ad early in 2016. The two razors have now reappeared in this alternative showdown, which turns into a different kind of battle…

We produced the sound design, music edit and overall mix to emphasise the difference between the clunky, clumsy and rusty lube-strip razor and the smooth, shiny and precise Hydro razor. The lube strip didn’t stand a chance.

We were asked by Leland Music to compose an authentic vintage soul track that would complement this playful ad.

We love recording live horns, and this brief gave us the opportunity to do just that - the simple trumpet hook (played by our very own Pete Yelland-Brown) adds a real charm to this feel-good piece.

Commercial for Maggi to launch their new ‘Fusian’ range of instant noodles.

Maggi commissioned this TVC (which is targeted at young adults) to promote the latest addition to their range of sauces, soups and seasonings.

We brought in our expertise to communicate the Asian origin of the product without resorting to the same old tropes. The combination of a bespoke modern R&B-influenced track with a fusion of far-Eastern flavours and a catchy hook works together to drive the playful ad forwards.

A series of adverts for Dove Men Australia as part of the international ‘Strength To Care’ campaign, featuring Australian rugby player David Pocock.

As soon as we saw the initial edits we knew that this would be a special project, and something that demanded something special from the soundtrack to complement David Pocock’s awesome personality and passion. After researching his story and discovering the things he stands for and how strongly he feels about them, we used this as a launchpad to begin coming up with thematic ideas.

We knew that getting the right tone would be essential, capturing the sensitivity and strength at the same time. Using piano as the focus of the composition, we added strings and subtle synths to build and grow the texture, keeping the piece strong but restrained.

This was one of those incredibly powerful projects where the films are good, the story is good, the sync supervisor is awesome and the agency are fully on board, enthusiastic and excited with the music direction from a very early stage. We’re pretty sure these are some of the reasons that this series of films went on to win two Spikes Asia awards!

The opening sequence to the Asia Hotel Design Awards.

Following on from the success of the sound design we created for the European Hotel Design Awards in 2016, The Neighbourhood approached us again, this time to create a bespoke music composition that would complement the space concept of their opening sequence animation for the award ceremony.

We used a series of ethereal and space-like synths to create the background for this piece but knew we wanted to add some pace too, we also collaborated closely with The Neighbourhood on the sound design elements.

A collaborative recording project with Cavendish Music to create a sample library of epic drums, percussion and metals that would form the foundation of a new library album.

The idea for Swagger came about whilst we were talking with our friends at Cavendish about potential album concepts, and was born out of a simple desire to find a huge room with a great reverb sound and then use the character of that space as the signature sound of an album.

Recording took place in Leeds at the stunning Left Bank Centre, an old church building that is now used as events space. The massive stone columns and arched roof provided an amazing setting for the session, in looks as well as sound. The sounds recorded included Japanese taikos, military snares, full drum kit and metal objects ranging from a rubbish bin to a salad bowl.

Cavendish then took these recordings and created the Swagger sample pack that went out to all of the commissioned composers as part of the album brief. Some of WMP’s tracks that were featured include the riff heavy ‘Bite Hard’ and the cinematic ‘Join Us’. The full album is being released on the 2nd of May 2016.

Short film showcasing Listerine’s app that helps blind people ‘feel a smile’.

Listerine have developed a mobile app that uses facial recognition technology to help blind people know when someone is smiling at them. The heart warming short film directed by Oscar nominated Lucy Walker shows people experiencing the app for the first time. The film is part of Listerine’s new ‘Advanced White’ campaign and quickly went viral on social media when it was launched in August 2015.

WMP were asked to compose a simple emotive piano piece that would accompany this thought provoking film. ‘The Smile Detector App’ is available to download.

Title theme for Sky Living’s first real-life drama series.

We were were asked to write the music for the opening titles of new reality drama Desi Rascals, from the director of Bend It Like Beckham and the creator of The Only Way Is Essex.

The show follows the lives of a multi-generational cast within the British Asian community in West London and is shot only a matter of days before being broadcast. It is a step up from other reality dramas in that it not only features the usual 20-somethings but also their parents, and this inter-generational dynamic helps to portray a wider perspective on what it means to be British and Asian as times and values change.

Bespoke pop track for Wrigley’s ‘Bin It!’ litter awareness campaign.

We were commissioned to write and produce a song that would form the basis of an animated film encouraging 7-11 year olds to dispose of their litter responsibly and ‘love where they live’.

Wrigley asked us to write lyrics that would clearly communicate the campaign’s specific key messages, whilst also creating litter-based scenarios that could be illustrated visually by the animation in a fun and humorous way. Although we carefully tailored the song to children of primary school age, we think viewers of all ages may also find this song going ‘round their heads when they’re wondering what to do with that used food wrapper…

“All you’ve got to do is bin it!”

Animated online promo for the National Lottery’s ‘Just Imagine’ campaign, with Ricky Tomlinson presenting some of the good causes that are supported by Lottery funding.

We were commissioned to write a piece that would help celebrate the positive impact that the Lottery has in helping so many people and projects, and to show that it connects them all together.

We wrote these aspects into the music by giving it a steady progression and a celebratory tone, and by using instrumentation with a handmade feel in order to give the film a tangible human quality that reflects the real-life changes that the funding has made.

Worldwide broadcast campaign for Unilever and Cif.

WMP were commissioned by Big Sync and DLKW Lowe to create the magical soundtrack to a series of television spots for Cif, including an original ‘Cif Theme’.

There are three elements to the main orchestral theme… a suspenseful, tension-building opening that is different for each version of the advert, moving into a crescendo when we first see the Cif product, and then flowing into the main Cif Theme for the ending.

With an excellent voiceover by Michael Gambon and brilliant animation directed by Jamie Lancaster at The Mill+, we really wanted to add to the films by putting across the charm, elegance and make-believe of the animation.

An immersive digital theatre installation for the new ‘Hearts Of Oak’ gallery at Chatham Historic Dockyard.

The exhibition is a 30-minute historical reconstruction set in 1806, which retells the story of the construction of wooden-hulled sail-powered warships at the dockyard.

We created the atmospheric audio for 15 individual spaces, which the the gallery visitors are guided through by the story’s characters. The sound design we produced enhances the visual effects to help set the scene in the various areas of the busy dockyard and the surrounding streets.

We also provided creative treatments for two battle sequences, in which British naval tactics are explained, and a character vividly recounts the horrors of war at sea.
