THE OFFICIAL SITE OF BIG PICTURE MUSIC
Music and Sound for Media
Big Picture Music is a London based boutique studio specialising in bespoke music composition and hyper-real sound design for picture. We've been creating distinctive state of the art music and sound for clients since 2001, and in that time we've done just about every sound job there is in the media.
WELCOME TO BIG PICTURE MUSIC
Based in London we've been writing music for screens of all sizes since 2001. We are experienced in all kinds of styles with commissions in Film and Television all over the world. Be it advertising, film, television series, animation or station identity we take our music projects from concept right through to completion. From pan pipes to rock guitar - we've been described as "wonderfully eclectic" which means having the ability to work up a music brief and see that it exceeds the expectations of our clients. Our experience and background in the worlds of film and music mean that your audience will have a deeper audio experience.
Big Picture Music has been lucky enough to be involved in some very high end branding camapaigns. Our background in both sound design and music composition brings a hybrid approach to your projects. The BBC2 station ident [see below] created by Red Bee media was a fantastic project to be involved in. They wanted an epic and open sound design 'spacescape' which has very subtle references to genre cinema. Listen closely and you'll hear our recreation of the huge vocal clusters of composer Georges Ligetti as used in the the movie '2001'.
MUSIC FOR FILM AND TV
We are equally comfortable composing music for a feature film as we are with a wildlife documentary series. The sonic palletes may differ but what we can bring to any production is a cohesive musical narrative. We always endeavour to have an intelligent and pragmatic approach to your musical needs.
'Gibbons Back in The Swing' is a 5 part TV series for Discovery International. We provided all the music in addition to a 5.1 sound edit and mix.
ANIMATION AND OTHER PROJECTS
Some projects fall into a slightly different category and it's one of our favourite tasks to create sonic landscapes to match and support animation and VFX. We can manage all of your audio requirements from ADR through to Foley and full hyper-real sound design.
'Tate Britain - The Great Day of his Wrath' is a short promotional film for the exhibition of the great painting by John Martin at the Tate Britain gallery in London. We provided full sound design and music.
