Discover The Wilderness of the UAE
Wild Planet Productions, Dubai
I provided Jonathan Ali Khan and Wild Planet Productions with several compositions for Discover The Wilderness of the UAE; a 3 film Natural History Documentary mini-series about the UAE's wildlife and conservation, featuring mountain, desert and marine life. The production is supported by Emirates Airline and can be watched onboard Emirates flights.
The opening titles for this series was recorded in 2016 with the Budapest Art Orchestra, conducted by Peter Pejtsik.
Different Kinds of Silence
Louisiana Channel, Denmark
Peter Zumthor is one of the world's leading architects, and in this fascinating biographical video interview - which takes place in his studio in Swizerland - he tells the captivating story of his childhood, his studies in NYC and his parents’ strong influence.
This film has been seen by more than 300.000 people online, and it features one of my early compositions, "Distant Memories", which I composed for APL Publishing back in 2014. (The music plays in the beginning and end of the film.)
Zumbo's Just Desserts
Season 1, Episode 4 "Kids' Party Cake"
Zumbo's Just Desserts is an Australian reality TV baking competition on the Seven Network.
The program was developed by the creators of My Kitchen rules and is hosted by Adriano Zumbo and Rachel Khoo, with Gigi Falanga as assistant.
One of my compositions from 2015 - "Hide And Seek" - was placed in episode 4 of the first season.
Den Store Strikkedyst / The Great Knit Off
Seasons 1 and 2
Den Store Strikkedyst (The Great Knit Off) has become somewhat of a phenomenon here in Denmark. It was produced by TV Syd, a local television network in the southern part of the country, and has attracted audiences from many countries.
A handful - and then some - of my compositions from APL Publishing's "Foxy Housewives" album (2014) are generously placed in every episode of the show's first two seasons.
오롯한 전나무길, 월정사 [절로 가는 길]
Buddhist Broadcasting System, Korea
One of my four compositions from APL Publishing’s “Re-Charge” album (2016) was placed in two films by BBS and BTN; two Korean Buddhist television networks. The title of my composition is “Peace Of Mind”, and it features a dreamy piano, soft electronic pads and sporadic gentle bells.
"Happy Postman"; one of my 'quirky' compositions from APL Publishing's "HOUSE WORK - Adult Comedy" album (2015) was featured in a number of episodes of Gasztroangyal; a Hungarian cooking and lifestyle television show from 2019.
Season 2, Episode 4 "Brother's Keeper"
Chicago Med is produced in The United States by NBC, and in 2016 I was commissioned to compose a piece of 'diegetic' music for the final scene of the fourth episode of season two.
The scene takes place at a fancy rooftop party where Dr. Manning and a group of 4-5 players are performing live music.
The producers were looking for a composition with an upbeat latin feel, and it was very important that it featured a virtuosic violin and piano part.
The final composition - titled "Samba Di Stop Me" - premiered on NBC on October 13 (2016).
