slick, rich, and elegant

Postby petercole » Tue May 15, 2018 12:52 pm

I never thought I could do one of these slick, rich, and elegant car commercial type tracks, but I gave it a shot and it worked out. I had lots of fun doing this one and I can't wait to work on more now!

As you're listening, imagine a silver Mercedes cruising through the mountains - maybe with some mist, or maybe it's late at night and the moon is reflecting off the hood.

ELEGANT, SOPHISTICATED INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a very busy Music Library that gets loads of great Film and TV placements. They’re searching for Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references: 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcZyzCMCVWc Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet: Revelation of luxury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MNJdnQLvBw Acura Luxury Luxury commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5artg8KI2_k Please submit Orchestral, Electronic, and/or Orchestral/Electro-Hybrid Instrumentals that deliver a classy, sophisticated vibe from start to finish. If your piece would work in the background of a luxury car commercial, you’re probably on the right track! Innovative instrumentation, creative programming, and an arrangement that has some forward momentum are all elements that will help your submissions shine for this pitch. Think slick, rich, and elegant, that's what they need! Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes long. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are needed for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way shape of form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). This company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, and a 50/50 split in for any applicable download fees by clients from their Library! Because this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please send as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018. TAXI #Y180425ES

Hi Peter,

This piece seems right on target. I love the high register piano and the arrangement. Did it take you a long time to put it together?
Great music for TV ad.

Peter, I'm pretty sure you could do anything! Fantastic track, as always. Love the rhythmic string articulation at 0:29 onwards... and all of the electronic elements

You nailed this one Peter. No prompt needed for the graphics, I was straight there on my own! I hope this one brings you a car commercial and a free car too. :)
