Recording Music

There are many aspects to our Music Audio Stories. Music is a big one!

One of the things that makes my audio stories special from others you may have heard, is the strong themed original classical music behind the narration. Unlike other audiobooks, the music continues throughout and is an essential part of the stories. If you listen carefully to my stories, you will notice that the music is phrased with the narration and character voices, making it almost seem like songwriting rather than your standard audiobook. Most of the scores are orchestral based but at times I include other instruments, such as guitars, banjo and drums. My audiobooks also introduce a variety of music genres, styles and instruments to children.

Recording Guitars

In my audiobook Johnny No Cash , there's a scene where Johnny the hamster enters The West. The acoustic guitar part in this piece of music was performed by Adie. We also used the electric guitar to create Spaceship Sound Effects as well as the flying Space theme heard in Robert & Johnson's Space Adventure.

Recording Guitars and Banjo

One of the best and most fun recording sessions we've had has been with Aris Tsigaras and Aaron John when we created the adventure story Robert & Johnson's Space Adventure. This was largely due to the fact that we decided to record them at the same time! Collectively we came up with a great song and wrote it together in the control room at the studio.
