We managed to combine hard work with a lot of fun recently, composing children’s music for a client who is offering a new concept in kid’s dance classes.
We were given only the lyrics to work from and we had to compose original kid’s pop-music which was fun, catchy and rhythmically correct for the children to dance to.
Check out these rough mixes :-):

We’re introducing film composer Yuri Sazonoff this month with a stunning collection of orchestral pieces – recorded with a live orchestra in Moscow.
Both the playing and the writing are simply wonderful.
These tracks are available to download either as a collection (including various edits) or as individual edits.
Orchestral Soundtracks 1 includes:
Passion of Love – A beautiful, romantic, 8 minute uplifting orchestral score. Beautiful string writing.
Vengeance – An exciting Hollywood style action score suitable for battle scenes and action sequences.
Requiem – A stunning romantic, melancholic piece similar to Barber’s Adagio for strings. (No separate edits available).
9th Sense – Mysterious, romantic, uplifting, sensual, soundtrack similar to Danny Elfmann.
Olympic Glory – Strong, slow theme. Sophisticated, rich, warm, beautiful, Hollywood style theme.
Olympic Spirit – A triumphant, uplifting, winning style orchestral soundtrack . Exciting and moving.
Each of these tracks (excluding “Requiem”) have multiple edits available to download.

Annoyingly, we had a minor database fault a few months back and we thought everything was resolved but this track was missing missing from some of the tables.
It’s one of my all time favourite action tracks too and I remember it selling within 5 minutes of uploading it.
I’ll be adding more of Michael’s great music shortly.
With Valentine’s day around the corner you’ll be needing great sounding romantic music and I’m not exaggerating when I say it doesn’t get better than this!

I’ll be posting more about Yuri soon……….
Following the huge popularity of our sophisticated Hip Hop track “Urban Symphony” , we’re adding more tracks to the collection.
Each track is a mixture of authentic hip hop beats and production combined with the sophistication of a classical string section. Also, each track contains multiple edits, loops and stings.
Street Walk is an edgy track with a great, boomy kick drum and authentic urban loops. The strings gives it a classy edge, with the catchy melody on top.
Urban Class is a more classically influenced track, especially towards the end when you hear a full on baroque style accompaniment from the strings.
You seem to like them and we’re having fun with these, so they’ll be more on the way.
And it’s brilliant.
He’s applied his usual, wonderful minimalist approach and innate musical taste to these 3 acoustic tracks:
Dreamers combines a mellow, laid back beauty and a modern quirky approach to instrumentation. Acoustic guitar, glockenspiel and accordion, arranged with great confidence.
On a Hill combines the acoustic guitar with an ethereal synthesizer but manages to create a warm, human feeling throughout.
You Complete Me is a beautiful, warm, touching, solo acoustic guitar track.
Also, we’ve currently got about 4GB of great music waiting to be added………and a brand new site on the way!
