A few weeks ago, I composed the music for a promotional video (embedded below) for a foundation called Breakthrough Silicon Valley. It was definitely exciting, because I’ve wanted to do this type of work for a long time. Ideally, this sort of project will help me find other opportunities to do music for film and television.
The most challenging part of this project was that the tempo (speed) changes that happen in the music needed to be precisely synced to particular moments in the video. You may notice this at the end, for example, when the final piano note plays at the same time that the Breakthrough logo appears. But I do think the detail work we put into the video was worth it.
I hope you enjoy it — I’ve definitely got more musical stuff in the pipeline.
