Leeds Retail Association

Full score and sound design

The original idea for this lengthy advert was to put together a short video providing exposure for some of the independent businesses found in Leeds. But even during the production process it became so popular amongst the retail community there, the director was asked to include more and more businesses until it ended up as the full version you see here.

It was one of the first orchestral soundtracks I was asked to put together. I decided to use the orchestral instruments to musically describe what was happening in the video whilst maintaining a musical theme throughout. The sound design is also my work and uses one of my favourite instruments, “Sellotape”, alongside other instruments less commonly found in the orchestra such as “Electric Toothbrush” and “Cutting Chicken”.
