When the story and the music are entwined, we enlist our collective of composers to handcraft an arrangement specifically for your work.

We’ve assembled a versatile and accomplished group of composers who write, score, record and edit to help tell your story. Our body of work ranges in size, scope, medium and genre – from simple and playful, to hip and of-the-moment, to grand orchestrations.

Your inspiration, our contribution.
