Asics – Block Party

Chris Cairns from Partizan and I worked on the music and sound design for this commercial together from the storyboard stage through to the final mix.

We started by grouping sporting activities with corresponding musical sounds.  Having built samplers within Logic using library sound effects, I wrote the track based around the storyboards, and with a bit of to’ing and fro’ing we ended up with something close to the final tune.  On the shoot, elements of the track were used as playback in order to sync the action, and I attended the set too in order to pick up some foley from the people on set.  Back in the studio in post production, I replaced a lot of the original libary sounds within the track with the foley I recorded on set, and that was about it… anyways, have look – it’s a complex idea to execute and it isn’t without its flaws but I learned a lot from the process and the end result was pretty cool.
