New music label for trailers, TV and commercials
Universal Publishing Production Music (UPPM) has announced a partnership with Volta Music to create a new boutique label that specialises in music for trailers and television advertising.
The new label, Volta Music, which will focus primarily on music for theatrical trailers and drama, will provide music encompassing massive orchestral cues, heroic action, fantasy adventure, explosive percussive setups, brooding sound design, emotive drama backdrops and much more.
To conceive its initial selection of music, Volta Music has worked closely with a team of composers, sound designers and music supervisors from around the world. The new label will present four albums, some of which have already been featured in high profile campaigns such as Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings (see photo), Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Tarzan 3D.
Commenting on the new venture, John Clifford, UK General Manager at UPPM said:"Volta Music is a superb addition to our catalogue and comes at the perfect time as more and more content editors are demanding quality trailer music for their productions. Volta Music will be a popular choice for our promo, trailer and advertising clients worldwide."
