The Shadowboxer Suite

Here are the first two pieces of a classically inspired suite for strings, The Shadowboxer Suite. The pieces were recorded and arranged digitally, but capture the sound of a traditional accoustic string orchestra. There is a feel of Bach but with a modern approach.

This is an example of the type of music that we produce for soundtracks or animation audio. If you are interested in licensing these pieces for use in a project or in commissioning MediaCrash to produce new music, please contact us with details of your project needs.

Bakuretsu Riot!

Here are the first four instrumental tracks for the Bakuretsu Riot! project, a concept for an animated punk/alt band.

Bakuretsu means "exploding" in Japanese and idea behind the project is essentially a manga, or cartoon band. The songs were written specifically with a female vocalist in mind, but the vocal tracks have not been completed.

Comic book or animated bands are nothing new, they've been popular since Josie and the Pussycats. Gorillaz comes to mind as well. actually has a list of virtual bands, and there have been a slew of animated or drawn musical acts from Japan.

Bakuretsu Riot! is still very much a work in progress but if you are interested in commissioning this type of music or project, please don't hesitate to contact us with your vision.
