Soundtracking

Well, that’s what I like to call it. Part of my job has evolved into coming up with some musical accompaniment for some videos we make at work, so I decided I’d share these with you. What so I have to put them together? Garageband, pure and simple. I don’t have a midi keyboard to put my own shape on things so I have to use the loops that come from Garageband and try and put an unique spin on them.

Here are two that I’m happy with the outcome. The most recent one is for Mind and Soul’s promo video for 2014. Mind and Soul works to help alleviate the stigma mental health has in churches. The music had to reflect what they were speaking about but also drive the video forward so it doesn’t become monotonous.

The second video had to have a contemporary modern feel as Antony Aris-Osula presented ‘Faith and Film’, discussing how faith and film interact and how some storylines and characters do have religious undertones.

I was happy with how this turned out but when I listened to it on my computer, it seemed that volume was overall a little low and not just my music. After discussing this with the video team at work, it was agreed that all subsequent videos would have an overall higher volume. Afterall, this is online, it’s not television! Having to crank up your speakers, isn’t good! I still like my soundtrack!
