Notes: The music brief for the ASDA Christmas Commercial was to compose a magical, emotional and memorable filmic full orchestral score to match the different sections of the visuals and story perfectly. The original music score needed to capture the joy, energy, wonder and excitement of Christmas as seen through a child’s eyes. We composed the 2 minute original music score and recorded with a full 60 piece symphony orchestra at Angel recording studios in London. The music needed to have a quiet, soft and intriguing opening then a playful middle section, followed by a memorable, catchy hook as the main theme once the film was in full flow and had to continually build in volume and excitement as the action gained pace and reached its grand climax. Overall the resulting music is a classic sounding magical orchestral adventure film score.
