“Let’s be honest. How many of you listen regularly to theme park attraction soundtracks while you’re working out, or in your car when you’re driving? Really? No one. Bummer. I do. Why? I love studying the music and songs which have been created already for themed environments and imagining what we can do to affect the future emotions of our customers through the very influential medium of sound.
SAMPLE RECORDING OF AN AMUSEMENT PARK THEME SONG: “CORNBELLY’S”
In fact, since my days in college, instead of listening to the latest pop sounds on the radio or delving into the history of classic rock at the local record store like most of my friends were doing, I was listening on my headphones to soundtracks from my favorite theme parks, movies, and children’s television shows. Now, don’t misunderstand me here – I do enjoy many other types of music as well, but mainly as it applies to the narrative of my life which has been thankfully deeply-rooted in the creation of themed entertainment projects. It’s through this audio filter that I process most of the music I personally write, inspire others in our company to create, and ultimately share with our clients and their audience.” – Steve
SAMPLE RECORDING OF AN EDUCATIONAL EXHIBIT FOR KIDS: “SCHOOL’S COOL”
Music is the moving force behind much of the emotion we feel as we experience new movies, television shows, and live experiences. We know of the power that lies behind music and enjoy it’s harnessing it’s power to evoke tears, joy, suspense, and a wide array of emotions. Our past music projects have involved lots of educational children’s songs for video series like “Hold On” and “Jimmy Sport – Playing Sports is Fun.” We have also created theme songs for attractions.
SAMPLE THEME SONG FOR A CHILDREN’S I.P.: “JIMMY SPORT”
One example of this was when The Maize Company challenged us to write a song that could be heard over and over again by the guests of their “farmtastic” fall extravaganza – “Cornbellys.” It was to be there theme song. We recorded a jingle that was very simple and short. They enjoyed it but wanted it to be longer and include an interactive part where guests may feel inclined to sing along with it. So, we added another verse and a bridge which included a part where it sounds like the crowd is repeating what the singer is singing. In fact, at one point, the singer actually invites the audience to sing along, by saying, “Alright everybody, repeat after me.” Well, they loved it. It accomplished exactly what they wanted the song to do from a marketing and in-the-park technical standpoint, but added a touch of musical magic that they wouldn’t have come up with without the collaboration of our writer and producing team. After the song was finished, The Maize company then referred us to seven other agri-tourism farms throughout the US who now play similar themes that came from the minds of our creative songwriters.
