Intel Ebola Commercial

Meet Ken Krieger and the makers behind Project Buendia. They created an Ebola-proof tablet and server with Intel Edison technology to help fight the Ebola outbreak — they did in two months when it would normally take two years — because they were racing against time. More information on Intel’s efforts can be found here.

I had the opportunity to score the music for this commercial for Intel. The music followed an arc split into three acts: presenting the problem, describing the solution, then wrapping it up. I used an unusual ambient palette of multiple echoing and reversed pianos, 808 kick, and soaring string textures.

Special thanks to Jordan Passman, Jake Weinreb, Danny Joseph, and the entire team of creatives who worked on this exemplary piece. It’s a real pleasure to work on projects where every member of the team is excellent at what they do and is free to do their job best. The writers and directors of this video spent countless hours working to do it right, and it shows.

A peaceful night under the stars with my beloved Debussy and Ravel. (Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and the G major piano concerto -- my favorite.) https://t.co/cXQjNGd6fw daviddas photo
