Creative notes from the music arranger / editor

For World Oceans Day, the SEA Aquarium commissioned a shadow puppet performance that utilised the magnificent aquarium as its backdrop. The story centres around a mermaid and her undersea friends; she chances upon a diver and takes an interest in him. Trouble occurs when underwater garbage threatens the ocean, and entraps the mermaid; thankfully, the diver rescues her.

This track contains a mix of customised arrangements of existing music with needle-dropped tracks.

Creative notes

We provide original background music, curated music and sound design for indoor and outdoor spaces. Existing audio systems are used for this purpose. For premises without an existing sound system, and should the client wish to install one, we are able to provide recommendations of vendors who specialise in such projects.

During creative discussions, we seek to understand the ambience that the client would, ideally, like to achieve. At the same time, we survey the premises, making note of its design and the moods that it brings to people passing through.

As with other site-specific installations, we take logistical and technical concerns into account, and tailor our content to overcome these. We discuss with our clients to come to a compromise between initial aspirations and practical application. Let’s say, the ideal situation had been to provide different music for different parts of the premises. However, is is discovered that it is not possible to zone the sound system. Eventually, we get around by creating one single track, and we stagger different styles of music initially meant for different zones within this singular track, as a form of workaround.
