JMS Tinkles The Ivories For FREE
Yes if you’re looking for a simple, moving, memorable or quirky piano piece to add atmosphere to your latest commercial – you can have it, on us!!!
Every day at JMS our writers and producers invest a good deal of time sourcing just the right music track for each and every production, and we’re totally aware of the recent trend towards simplicity in instrumentation, and in particular, the use of solo piano. In TV Commercials from Lloyds TSB to Hyundai, from the Fiat Punto to Apple’s ipad2, the piano has been the instrument of choice to conjure up just the right contemporary mood. In fact we can’t get enough of this style of track – so we ‘jumped on the piano band wagon’, and produced an album of our own – solo piano themes which we now offer licence-free for your broadcast use.
The album project was based on the piano of Alicia Keys. Her very own Yamaha C3 Neo grand was built to celebrate Yamaha’s 100th anniversary and represents the very best of their Conservatory Collection. Using vintage microphones, the C3 was painstakingly ‘captured’ by some stonking award winning engineers, and the result is a tool that not only Alicia herself uses, but also, via amazing software, our composer Andi Baxter!
In the album, Andi has created over twenty wonderful tunes, all the time keeping a keen ear to their suitability for use in advertising.
You’ll find all the tracks on our blog page here.
Please feel free to audition them for your production, then when you contact us, we will make broadcast quality files available for your use, entirely free of charge. All we ask is that you provide PRS details to the broadcaster ahead of transmission in the usual manner.
We are very happy to modify, or provide longer or shorter versions, as you require again at no cost (Andi doesn’t need much excuse to sit and tinkle the ivories!). And that’s it!
Thanks. We hope you enjoy ‘The Piano’.
