Live From The Virgin Media Chapel

Working with BBDO, we composed the music for Virgin Media’ new campaign, featuring the King himself (kind of).

A gritty contemporary rock track composed by Mcasso’s Richard Atkinson plays as ‘Elvis’ struts his stuff in front of the adoring Virgin Media Chapel congregation.

Thank you very much 🕺

Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

We worked with Leo Burnett to arrange and produce a soft acoustic version of the children’s song for Fairy.

We invited singer Rachel D’Arcy to our studios to record the vocals, whilst Mcasso’s Richard Atkinson re-wrote the piece piano and acoustic guitar – which accompanies the touching film.

Mini Countryman ‘A Room With A View’

We worked with Arthur & Martha and Brooklyn Brothers on Mini Countrymen’s ‘A Room With A View’ campaign.

Featured in multiple spots, our uplifting electronic track, composed by Richard Atkinson, aids the beautiful imagery as Mini seek people to join them in escaping the city – and making the most of the great outdoors.

Behind The Scenes with Simon’s Cat

We feel privileged to have been part of the team behind the first ever full colour production of ‘Simon’s Cat’ following a successful Kickstarter Campaign to fund ‘Off To The Vet’.

We worked with ‘Simon’s Cat’ creator Simon Tofield over a period of months with respect to all audio aspects to the film, including the composition of an original theme, incidental music, sound effects, Foley and Audio Post Production.

The above Behind The Scenes video features Stuart Hancock, working for Mcasso, who composed the original theme and incidental music, using a variety of orchestral instruments to character themes and heighten the playfulness or tension, where necessary.

Hear our original Simon’s Cat theme, and check out the Behind the Scenes film for the Sound Effects on our Simon’s Cat Page.

Meet Buttons – The Animatronic Cadbury Cow

When Cadbury found that a third of children couldn’t identify that milk came from cows, and one in eight London city children are unaware that cows moo, they created Buttons – and brought him to London!

We provided the moosic for the heartwarming spot. 🐄

Inspired By ADCAN

Following attending the ADCAN Awards 2017 Filmmaker & Animator Party – we have been inspired to help upcoming Filmmakers and Animators, and the ADCAN selected charities, by offering composed music to selected entrants in the 2017 ADCAN Competition. We will offer 6 filmmakers/animators, chosen by our team, access to a Mcasso composer and producer to give them the opportunity to collaborate on their entry.

We’ll then invite you to Mcasso’s Sound Studios in Carnaby Street for an initial production meeting (or we can arrange a video call if you are based outside of the UK). Then, once you are happy with the completed piece of music – we’ll invite you back, where one of our in-house sound engineers will be on hand to create the final mix for you.

Spaces are limited, so if you would like to be considered – please email music@mcasso.com before 9am (UK Time) Wednesday 19th July with a brief description of your film (or the film itself if possible) along with a paragraph stating how your film could benefit from composed music.

Find out more details here, we hope to hear from you soon!

Gold For Heathrow at the Creative Circle Awards!

Our Music Supervision aficionados at Curved Arrow set upon the Roundhouse last night for the Creative Circle Awards, in celebration of excellence across the advertising industry over the last year.

We were delighted to see the Heathrow Christmas spot scoop a whopping 4 awards – one of which was Gold for ‘Best Use Of Music’ – a campaign Curved Arrow were recruited as Music Supervisors for – where they suggested, negotiated and licensed Chas & Dave’s ‘I’m Going Back’.
