Audiomachine posted their 2016 “show reel” and it was a great one.
Trailers for Film, TV and Video Games in Fantasy/SciFi genres are often spectacular. They visually grab attention and aim to trigger emotional reaction. However, without the right soundtrack, they might still be interesting, but epic music makes everything better, right?
Last year audiomachine had a great one and many fans of everything from “Warcraft”, “X-MEN: Apocalypse”, “Spiderman: Homecoming” to dramas like “Hidden Figures”, most people didn’t even know where that emotional push to the theatre came from.
Specialist orchestral composers have become a core component of modern promoting. Formally known as “boutique”, fans more commonly call these artists “Epic”.
audiomachine is a production music company based in Beverly Hills, California, founded by Carol Sovinski (1960-2016) and composer Paul Dinletir (formally of X-ray dog) in August 2005, producing music composed by Paul Dinletir and Kevin Rix.
Sadly cofounder Carol Sovinski passed away last far too young in June 2016, but the incredible talent that she cultivated Audiomachine was a fitting tribute.
In a 2012 interview with DIYmusician Carol described Audiomachine like this:
“My partner, Paul Dinletir, and I launched audiomachine in 2005. From day one our mission has been to create the best original music and sound design for film trailers, television and video game advertising campaigns. We continue to try to push the envelope by recording in some of the most historic studios in the world and we work diligently to find the most amazing musicians available to us.”
“We’ve been so lucky over the last year to be part of these blockbuster campaigns. We wanted to spread an Epic thank you to you, our fans, and to all of our placements. We are so excited for 2017 and we hope you continue on this #Epic journey with us. Please enjoy our 2016 Showreel”
