Penthouse Atalaya Concept Video

August 18, 2013

On this Penthouse Atalaya project, I worked with an audio visual studio which produces architectural concept videos. They came to me with a storyboard and screenplay and a sonic idea of what the video required, and after some conversations and some sonic brainstorming, we ended up with this beautiful video that showcases the interior design and architecture of a luxury apartment in Barcelona, Spain.

The music is made up of four different pianos playing contrasting rhythmic patterns against each other, then four different string ensembles doing the same. I borrowed concepts from minimalist composers such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley to create this tapestry of layered instruments and rhythms.

The track used in this project became Building Bridges, an alternate version of which is available in various mixes in the on this site.
