power of music.




As we head off to New York City to visit friends and see one of Mike's favorite bands- it seems timely that this post is about music. Music has always been a part of his life- school (Berklee), young adult life (popular local band) and early professional life (SONY and other record studios in NY). We recently rented It Might Get Loud, a documentary on the electrical guitar and the legends. While I fought sleep into the wee hours, he managed to watch it one and a half times in one (late) night only to watch the directors cut the next day. He was animated, moved and inspired just talking about it. (it made have made its way back into our NetFlix cue.)

When I was busy proclaiming my new years resolutions- he silently was busy acting on his...making music a part of every day. He made his guitars more accessible and in a basket in the living room are ready to grab tamborines, maracas, shekere and a bunch of other things to scrape, tap, shake and rattle. Lucy is really taking to the new change. Nothing like a Sunday morning jam session to make you feel like the Partridges.

All that to say, the man knows how music shapes a mood. Triggers a memory. Brings people together. He thrives on music and is always on the hunt for new, fresh and edgy as much as he appreciates the classics. Along with an artful eye and relentless editing, he truly brings moments on film to life through music. Check out a fun example from our friends and colleagues, Lucinda (Chocolate Creative Design) and Sarah (True Event) of True and Wesson.

mix tape=love. the power of music.


Music is a big part of Buzz. Mike is a musician and by trade his roots are in the music industry. Sure, our goal is to artfully capture the moving images but it isn't until it is set to the perfect soundtrack that the film shorts come alive. Music emotes. It isn't a new concept.

Remember back in the day, the ultimate gift was a mix tape? Compilation CD's definitely rate, but nothing beats a mix tape. The sheer arduous task of manual fades made them a true labor of love. The ultimate reflection of the giver's patience & creative juices. The extra long pauses and the awkward audio moments were all part of the treasure. I still own every mix tape ever gifted complete with the hand-written liner notes and magazine collages on the inside flap. This image from Sparkle Power made me smirk. It captures that pure and innocent breed of love... among youthful friends and first loves.
