Musical sample reel
From the stomping gypsy jazz of the “Passing Harold Blumenthal” soundtrack, to the 1960’s psychedelic rock of George Clooney’s “The Men Who Stare at Goats”. Our groovy take on the Jordache theme song, to ambient techno beats. This sample reel demonstrates the range and possibilities of The Brothers Lit.
The vision for this commercial, directed by America’s Next Top Model judge Nigel Barker, was going through four decades of Jordache jeans with the music morphing to reflect each decade. Four decades in 30 seconds… no problem!
Here is the full version of the various decades we did for Jordache.
Dreams Are Not Forgotten: Documentary by Nigel Barker
Again working with Nigel Barker, “Dreams Are Not Forgotten” is a documentary about Haiti after the 2010 Earthquake. For the soundtrack we melded traditional Haitian folk rhythms and melodies with modular synthesizer beats and orchestral strings. It is an amazing film and we are very proud to be part of it.
International Rescue Committee
We were so thrilled to work with the IRC on this piece. Tribal beats meet upbeat guitar and modern synthesizers for an inspirational commercial spot.
Passing Harold Blumenthal “Crescendo”: Film by Seth
“Passing Harold Blumenthal” is an independent film by director Seth Fisher set for release and the festival circuit in 2012. For the score, we stayed within our indie-gypsy jazz idiom (a la Noah and the MegaFauna) utilizing gypsy guitar, violins, accordion and horns. This particular piece is the climax of the film and our men’s chorus helps lift the audience’s emotions.
