We were on staff as songwriters for several years with music publishing giant Warner/Chappell Music, writing songs for an eclectic array of platinum award winning recording artists (Nancy Wilson, Cher, Pat Benatar, Teddy Pendergrass, Angela Bofill, Agnetha Foltskog of ABBA and Martha Davis of the Motels, among others) and for TV shows including Fame, General Hospital and As The World Turns. We eventually left that world to start our own band, Too Human, recording a few CDs of quality original material.
We then started experimenting with instrumental composition. Our instrumental work is in a whole other realm - atmospheric, eclectic, and totally in sync with the vibe of the project. From orchestral compositions to boppy jazz pieces, quirky little snippets and moody vignettes we strive to become an integral part of a film, creating tension and intensity, sweetness and sensitivity or whatever meets the needs of the project. And while we are comfortable working with ssynthesizers for specific effect, we generally use real instruments.
Currently we have a song in the new film, "Fairhaven" starring Chris Messina of "Julie and Julia" fame and our recent experience includes a song in the latest film from the Farley Brothers, "Hollywood and Wine" (starring David Spade, Pamela Anderson, Chris Kattan, Horation Sanz and Chaz Palminteri), as well original scores for independent writers / directors / producers Felipe Soares and Kat Alix-Gadreau; background music for award winning storyteller, Karen Glass; music for choreographer / dancer, Abby Bender, and background music and production for Helen Rainoff's Getting Centered Guided Meditation CD.
We have many tracks online on Pond5 and are also available for creating new music tailored for your project.. Contact us at boenel at verizon dot net.
