Music for film, TV and radio…
Way down yonder in New Orleans - three new albums for 2020
Jeff and David have always enjoyed working in the culturally rich and creatively vibrant city of New Orleans. Maybe it's the fusion of cultures that lends itself to their way of working. or maybe it's the fantastic array of musical talent and experience that helps them create such an authentic sound. Early in 2019, the guys were back in New Orleans to soak up the spirit of Mardi Gras.
Some of our latest compositions
Elgar, Holst and Dukas feature on new albums
Audio Network's quest to provide media professionals with usable high-quality versions of the world's greatest music with its Classical Collection shows no signs of slowing down.
If anything, the pace of recording and production is accelerating. Jeff and David, working with long-time collaborators Julian Gallant and Rob Kelly have been hard at work on two new albums: a showcase of famous works by Sir Edward Elgar and Paul Dukas and a new recording and arrangement of Gustav Holst's Planets Suite.
The first album features Elgar's best-loved pieces including Pomp and Circumstance, Land of Hope and Glory, his cello concerto and Nimrod from the Enigma Variations. These are teamed up with Dukas' most famous composition: the Sorcerer's Apprentice.
Holst wrote the Planets between 1914 and 1916, although the first public performance didn't take place until late in 1920. Our album features all seven parts of the suite. The seven parts correspond with the number of known planets in the solar system at the time.
Both albums were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in North London, which were opened in 1931 by Elgar himself.
Making lemonade with Mir Pro
When the Covid-19 crisis forced the cancellation of a major recording session at London's Abbey Road Studios, Jeff and David turned to VSL's Mir Pro software to create one of the tracks from the planned session - one musician at a time.
Two composers, two continents, one process
Jeff Meegan and David Tobin have been creating great music together since 2010. It was a chance introduction through a mutual friend at Berklee College of Music that brought together Chicago-based Jeff and his new partner David, roughly 3,500 miles away in the UK.
Separated by an ocean, but united through technology and a shared passion for composition and creativity, the team have worked on a huge range of music for advertising, TV, film, and radio. With a growing reputation for quality, speed and real-world commercial awareness, they are in high demand with an ever-growing client list.
