Clif Bar & Company and Emoto Music have partnered again to create Clif’s new “Sustained Energy” campaign, featuring tennis phenom Venus Williams and USWNT legend, Megan Rapinoe. Written by Stuart Rau and arranged by Paul Bessenbacher, the music puts viewers right in the middle of the action. These spots are sure to get you out of your seat!

Emoto Music teamed up with Merkley + Partners advertising agency to develop “Fortune Teller,” as part of Mercedes-Benz USA’s 2020 ad campaign. Co-written by Alex Kovacs and Paul Bessenbacher, with sound design by 740 Sound, Emoto’s contribution fully captures the mystery of the car buying experience. Check out the spot below!

When we’re not closing down Sunday brunch’s, mixologizing (made up) variations on the Vieux Carre or baking sourdough bread from hundred-year old starter, you’ll likely find us at any of the local farmer’s markets. Local, in season and keeping small farmers afloat is one of our many passions. So imagine how thrilled we were to have the opportunity to work with Serena Creative on a package of public service announcements for Food Forward – “fighting hunger and preventing food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same”.

Check out the :60 spot directed by Ric Serena, music by PB, mixed by Durand Trench, location sound by Stan Gonzales!

 

Having to keep this hush-hush during production, we are now thrilled to share our Twilight Zone Super Bowl promo for the upcoming reboot with Jordan Peele, premiering on CBS All Access. With the internet all atwitter immediately after it aired, the video racked up over 1M views in under a day.

Directed by Ric Serena with sound design by Durand Trench, PB’s mysterious score alludes throughout to the iconic Twilight Zone theme, culminating at the end with the original theme as we all know it.

 

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.

Did you know that Emoto composer Ryan Elder has been working alongside Whitney Avalon, Steve Gossett, and Michael Sullivan in producing the “Princess Rap Battle” comedy short? Each individual music video is already boasting views up to the multi-millions on Youtube – which is not so surprising to the generations of us, who were raised on Disney Princesses and storybook Fairy Tales, left perpetually wondering and weighing which character (protagonist? antagonist?) had really been dealt the worst hand turned ‘Happiest-Ever-After’.

Elder composed the music (but not the lyrics) for Cinderella vs Belle (ft. Sarah Michelle Gellar), Maleficent vs Daenerys (ft. Yvonne Strahovski), & Mrs Claus vs Mary Poppins – in addition to mixing and mastering the music of the entire series so far.

It’s been super fun working with Whitney and the team on those. The positive response to them has been really exciting,” – Elder said of his experience working on the musical comedy short.

You can purchase the music to each “Princess Rap Battle” on iTunes (via Whitney Avalon) and find more of the “Princess Rap Battle” music videos, like the one featured below, on Youtube!

Emoto’s featured artist Kotomi (aka Lauren Hillman) collaborated with Hahn for the last track on his EP release, titled “Grace”.

“I started following [Los Angeles singer] Kotomi on Soundcloud, and a few hours later she messaged me and said she liked my stuff, and said we can work together. I emailed her some instrumentals, and she picked that one. Then she went for a drive around California, around the coast, all day, recording in her car on her voice recorder. That’s pretty cool. I wish I could write music like that. She pretty much wrote it in a day and sent it back,” – Hahn said of his partnership with Kotomi in a recent interview with SPIN.

In addition to collaborating with other artists, our songstress Kotomi has been releasing a new song on the first Tuesday of every month this year! Keep up with her by following her on Facebook or Soundcloud.
