Delta Airlines Commercial

This was a very creative commercial to score, and a collaborative process with my friend and ace session/live guitarist Michael Elsner. The commercial is in two halves: first an ambient desolate sequence of scenes, and second a driving captivating rock anthem. The commercial works well because it draws a stark contrast between the stereotypical failures of the airline industry and the ideals of a brand that strives to go over and above what is expected.

The first half is a collection of ethereal pads and a signature high echo piano that sets the scene. Then some sound effects transition us to the driving rock section. Mike played guitar and bass, while I programmed drums and synths. Above all of this soars some strategically impacting sound effects that tie the sound to the visuals.

It's done. Perhaps the most epic a cappella production I've ever worked on, with a lot of help from my friends. Enjoy SUPERHUMAN: https://t.co/EU3Px3XN2Z #kpop #acappella @NCTsmtown_127 #NCT127_SUPERHUMAN

Not a whole lot of sessions going on, so I had to step into my friend @danlutz's private session with @louiepalmerdrum. #50waystoleaveyourlover https://t.co/zZj3012VtG

Finally taking the plunge: backing up with SuperDuper -> Mojave -> Catalina in the hopes it'll clear up some longstanding issues. #Mac #Upgrade
