Emoto worked with the music department and creative team at Deutsch LA for the Taco Bell “Desperate Dinners” radio campaign, featuring a 90s-era jingle that updates frequently. The Emoto Group-Three Singers record tongue-in-cheek tongue-twisters for both the general market and multi-cultural versions that included spots like “Cupful of Ramen”, “Boyfriend-Made Dinner”, and “Overly Ambitious Dinner”. What’s on the menu at your home tonight? Will it be breakfast for dinner or possibly pasta!
Check out a quick medley featuring some of the work below!
Broad City is the latest show to license music from Opus Orange’s library. The second of the two tracks, “Take Your Time” can be heard in the episode “Bedbugs,” airing for the first time on Wednesday, Nov. 29th at 7:30pm EST / 10:30pm PST. In this episode #409 “a fancy new bag gives Abbi confidence during unemployment. Ilana and Jaimé deal with an inevitable New York City nightmare: bedbugs.” Previously licensed on October 25th for episode #406 was the single, “When I Look In Your Eyes.”
This will be Opus Orange’s second placement on the half-hour scripted series on Comedy Central adapted from the critically acclaimed web series created by and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as 20-something best friends who are trying to navigate life in New York, despite that their adventures always seem to lead down unexpected and bizarre paths. They have very little money, but they are survivors who aren’t afraid to throw themselves into sticky situations, no matter how messy the end results may be. Jacobson and Glazer both honed their comedy chops at New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. UCB co-founded Amy Poehler is an executive producer on the series and joins Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Hurst, Jason Mantzoukas and Amy Sedaris, among others, as guest stars.
This project for MoMA with WAX Studios in NYC is a promo for the upcoming show “ITEMS: Is Fashion Modern” on display from October 1 through January 28. The show examines the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today.
The score uses only sounds from the fashion world – coat hangers, leather belts, scissors, cloth tears, velcro rips, sewing machine, high heels, perfume spray. The sounds were sourced from One Thousand Birds and organized into music by our very own Paul Bessenbacher.
