MUSIC COMPOSITION FOR DFL-SUPERCUP

August, 20th 2014

Dynamedion composed the music for the opening ceremony of the DFL-Supercup (German Football League).

Felix, one of our sound designers and project manager of this venture, says: "To work for the DFL and thus for the German Football League is something very special of course and it was a lot of fun to manage this project. Transforming the common and well-known DFL theme into a powerful musical piece that’s just perfect for the DFL-Supercup opening ceremony was an exciting challenge. To then finally see the opening ceremony via live stream and hear our composer Alex Pfeffer’s music composition being aired at the stadium was pretty awesome!"

Thank you DFL for choosing DYNAMEDION!


OPENING THEME REDESIGN FOR “GZSZ“

July, 15th 2014

The opening theme of the famous and most successful German soap opera “GZSZ” (abbrev. for “Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten” - in English “good times, bad times“) by RTL • UFA SERIAL DRAMA was revised and got a musical makeover by our Dynamedion composers. The opening theme still sounds familiar and kept its well-known and popular melody and text, but got a refreshing up-speed electro-pop treatment. To create this special sound, we teamed up with “Glasperlenspiel”, a young German singer-songwriter band, who has successfully enriched the charts during the last years.

April, 10th 2014



The Elder Scrolls is back - better than ever - with a fantastic and gigantic MMORPG. Dynamedion is proud to have contributed the soundtrack production and a ton of awesome sound design to the epic saga.

This is what Dynamedion's Tilman Sillescu (Creative Director Music) says:
"The supervising and recording of the soundtrack for TESO was a great pleasure. Brad Derrick and Jeremy Soule have again delivered a fantastic piece of game soundtrack. The vibrant musical themes that you know from previous "The Elder Scrolls“ games have been perfectly transported to the new game to instantly make the player feel at home and to convey the spirit of the world of "The Elder Scrolls". We recorded the soundtrack in Prague (Czech Republic) with the FILMharmonic Orchestra. The soloist recordings were performed in Budapest (Hungary), Frankfurt (Germany) and at the DYNAMEDION Studios in Mainz (Germany)."

SOUND DESIGN FOR "THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE"

In addition to the music production, the Dynamedion sound design team is responsible for designing the sound of the creatures you will run into while playing the game.

Our sound designers have designed more than 1.500 creature SFX for "The Elder Scrolls Online". Besides new and exclusive recorded sounds, BOOM Library's animal libraries (Creatures, Dogs, Wildcats, Horses, upcoming unannounced library) have extensively been used to give the various monsters their voices.

Dynamedion's Michael Schwendler (Lead Sound Designer):
Working on a game with so many creatures was challenging and fun at the same time. Fortunately we had all the BOOM Library stuff. We used a lot of the creatures, horses, dogs and of course the wildcats. We are very proud of the result and being part of such an amazing project.

January, 30th 2013

One of Dynamedion's services is called:"OPEN ORCHESTRA RECORDING SESSION" where anybody can record any amount of music with a full symphonic orchestra. In December 2012, we had a raffle on our SONUSCORE website where you could win 1 minute of your music played by the state-owned orchestra of Brandenburg in Germany. Each one of those who bought a copy of EPICA - ACTION STRINGS automatically participated.

Wally Badarou, a musician from Benin won the recording and was happy to take advantage of Dynamedion's comprehensive service.

wally_profile

Dynamedion takes care of everything: the organization, the orchestration, the recording, the final mix. Read on to see how everything is done in 4 simple steps.


STEP 1: SIMPLY SEND US AN MP3 AND A MIDI FILE OF YOUR TRACK
The only thing Wally had to do was to send us an mp3 file of his track along with a MIDI file. You can listen to the mp3 file via the Soundcloud link below:




STEP 2: DYNAMEDION'S ORCHESTRATORS WRITE THE FINAL SCORE BASED ON THE MP3 AND THE MIDI FILE
You can take a look at parts of the final score on the example pictures below.

STEP 3: DYNAMEDION ARRANGES THE RECORDINGS WITH THE ORCHESTRA
The recordings have been realized with the German state-owned orchestra of Brandenburg. You can listen to the really beautiful final recordings via the Soundcloud link below:




STEP 4: YOU RECEIVE THE FINAL STEREO MIX
Shortly after the recordings, Wally received the final mix.

Wally Badarou about the OPEN ORCHESTRA RECORDING SESSIONS:"I believe it is an invaluable chance for composers to auto-produce a performance of their work that they can use as they wish. The sound is excellent, and I am amazed that one did not think of it before. Well done. I didn't know of the service until a got a chance to participate as an offer from Sonuscore, for the last purchase I've recently made from them. All I had to do was supply a 1mn long mp3 file and a cleaned-up version of the midi file. I gave no indication, the music spoke for itself, and the result was superb. I will not forget."

Here's what Wally says about his work "Vesuvio Solo" and the Open Orchestra Recording Session:

I am a self-taught french rock/jazz/funk artist of african origin (Benin), mostly known (in Europe) for my work with britfunk band Level 42, but with eclecticism ranging from african to classical music, and anything in between.

This movement is an excerpt from "Vesuvio Solo", featured on "Words Of A Mountain" (Island/Universal), an electronic album that I devoted to mountains around the globe, the universal wisdom gatekeepers. It is my most cherished work to this date. It was one of the first tapeless albums ever recorded. That was back in 1987, at "Studio W" home-studio, Compass Point, Nassau, Bahamas.

It involved a New England Digital's Synclavier II PSMT system, and early MOTU's Performer sequencer running on Apple Macintosh SE-30, both controlling an impressive array of tone modules via MIDI exclusively. All synths were mixed through an Allen & Heath Brenell 20-channel desk directly to a Sony PCM-F1 digital stereo system, no tape machine in between, and absolutely no sampling involved (neither Digital Performer, nor ProTools existed yet).

Tone modules consisted of Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, Oberheim OB8, Yamaha TX-816s, Korg DVP-1, and Synclavier's own FM modules. Lexicon PCM-70 was the only reverb unit used throughout the album.

March, 28th 2012

The video game "Kinect Rush" takes place in the lovely universes of the Disney-Pixar animation movies "Ratatouille", "Toy Story", "The Incredibles", "UP" and "Cars".

"Ratatouille", for instance, comes with a beautiful and playful french accordion sound, all "Incredibles" tracks were performed by a live big band while the music for "Cars" features some cool rock band elements like surf guitars, rock organ and modern drums. The orchestral part of the music was live recorded with the 66 player ensemble "FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague".
