A Little More About Us:

Special Music Projects:
We've had the good fortune of working on some very interesting projects over the years which stretch outside the 'normal' definition of Music Composition and Production.
Woodstock: Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Collection
The original audio masters from Woodstock were recorded on 1" 8-track tape. For the 25th anniversary in 1994, we were commissioned to restore and remix these masters for a collector's edition box set of CDs. Some of the masters had been damaged in a flood, some were missing for unknown reasons. We brought together all the masters, cleaned and restored them, and found cloned copies of some of the tapes that were missing. The record company even got Pete Townsend to send us his copies of The Who's Woodstock performances.
We spent a lot of time repairing the technical problems with the masters, being careful not to 'clean up' any of the grittyness of the recordings which is a big part of their charm.
It was an incredible experience being able to hear Jimi Hendrix's guitar solo'd, or Janis Joplin or Joe Cocker's vocal mic isolated. We mixed four CDs worth of material which is still available as a boxed set.
The Heineken Experience
The Heineken Experience is an amazing museum and one of the most successful tourist attractions in all of Europe. It is built in one of Heineken's old factories which was entirely renovated to house it. It features four levels of interactive experiences including a historic Brew Room, an exhaustive look at quality ingredients and the brewing process, a chance to star in your own video and a chance to get your own personalized bottle of Heineken.
One of the man interactive attractions in the museum is an immersive motion-simulator film called 'Brew U'. During this show, the viewer is brought through the entire Heineken brewing experience as if they were being turned into beer. We wrote the original music for this adventure which, at the end, invites the audience to move into a club-like environment where they get free samples of Heineken.
High School Musical 1, 2 and 3 Video Games
High School Musical is one of Disney's most successful franchises. When it was time to develop video games based around High School Musical 1, 2 and 3, Disney realized how important the quality of the music in the games would be. Due to licensing issues, they would not be using the original recordings from the films, so they would need to do very accurate sound-alikes.
We were brought in to not only coordinate the arranging and recording of the music and vocals from several other producers as well as ourselves, but were responsible for every aspect from casting to final mixing and mastering to come as close to the originals as possible.
World Expo 2010 Shanghai - USA Pavilion
The World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China has been visited by over 73 million people. The huge USA Pavilion at The Expo was a massive attraction, like a city within a city. It featured many multimedia activities and we were commissioned to write original music for several of these.
