The Magic Behind The Music: Sonic Ozault – 6/29/12

Music is one of the most accessible and wide reaching art forms around. I mean, who doesn’t love listening to music? It molds our culture and our times on both a personal and societal level. There is also an alluring element of mystery about a piece of music. Where did the composer get the inspiration? How was it recorded? What is the instrumentation? You can drive yourself mad if you think too hard about it. These questions are also what keep the doors open at music schools!
 

 
The Sonic Ozault music library has done it again by releasing six powerhouse CDs so far in 2012! There’s a little something for everyone in their latest releases – shredding electric guitar rock, emotive film scores made for the big screen, infectious electronica club anthems and feel good lifestyle themes. Along with their new music are a couple of videos that take you behind the scenes with exciting studio footage! Take a listen:
 
SOZ044-045 Guitar Heroes Vol.4 (Disc 1 and 2)
 
Chris Wright doesn’t mess around. The musicianship displayed on SOZ044-045 Guitar Heroes Vol.4 is in a word….intimidating. With Chris’ mind-bending electric guitar work coupled with muscular grooves and a heavy bottom end, these CDs ROCK! Think of it as a celebration of the fact that ROCK. IS. NOT. DEAD. Check out this YouTube video to see some of the studio magic in action –

The Breakfast Of Champions: New Olympic Production Music – 6/15/12

I don’t know about you, but I love the Olympics. It’s athletes like Michael Phelps and Serena Williams that give the rest of the world the impression that the United States is full of Herculean specimens. U-S-A! U-S-A! That will be my mantra from the comfort of my Barcalounger while feasting on chicken wings and mozzarella sticks. Represent!
 
This week’s new releases spark the pride and yearning for victory that goes along with the Olympic games. T minus 40 days until the opening ceremonies for The Games of the XXX Olympiad in London. May “Old Glory” ride high and central on the Olympic medal podium!

The trumpet’s blare signals the arrival of the contenders! These tracks are bigger than the credit card bill of those actually in attendance at the Opening Ceremonies. Let the games begin!

What Do Hipsters And Air Conditioning Have In Common? New Sunny Tunes – 5/18/12

Ahhhhh…..Spring is in the air. The sun stays around for happy hour and your air conditioner is called back to active duty. Although Memorial Day weekend is still a week away, it’s time to pull out that dusty barbeque out of the storage shed! I thought it only fitting to show off the new releases from the Abaco, Amygdala and Liftmusic libraries which kick off good party vibes. Soak it in!
 
AB211 I ♥ Hipsters
 
What would Summer be without the fun-to-people-watch Hipster kids? They are everywhere in LA – Dodger Stadium, The Hollywood Bowl, Elysian Park and of course the ultimate Hipster Paradise known as The Satellite (aka Spaceland for seasoned LA concert goers). Just look for bearded men and waif-y ladies donning skinny jeans, shades with colorful frames and can of PBR in their hand. I can say this for the breed of Silverlake/Echo Park/Brooklyn residents – they sure do love their Indie Rock. And I too love Indie Rock. Therefore, I ♥ Hipsters. Wait……I think I got that wrong on the SAT too.

AMY020 Classic Rock, Southern Twang
 
Keeping with the “Get Rid Of Cable” commercials humor, here’s another nod: When I think of Summer, I think of road trips. When I think of road trips, I think of the open American highway. When I think of the open American highway, I think of rootsy American music. And when I think of rootsy American music, I think of biker bars. Does Summer remind me of Biker Bars? No, but beer sure does. Somehow, all roads lead back to beer. Sit back, crack one open and enjoy the sounds from AMY022 Classic Rock, Southern Twang. And unlike Budweiser now owned by a company in Belgium, enjoy the music that is will always be a true American export!

LIFT067 Good Times
 
Good Times. Is there anything better? I’ll go ahead and answer no on your behalf. From all the way across The Pond comes LIFT067 Good Times, a shag-a-delic volume that Austin Powers can boogie down to. Yeah Baby!
 

 
*here’s a live performance of LIFT067_002 Ooh Ja. Ooh, behave!

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed: New Remixed Production Music – 4/27/12

“They just don’t make ‘em like they used to!” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard an elder say that, I wouldn’t need that Social Security check that my generation probably won’t get anyway. Despite the old tired saying, there is some truth in it. There was a time when music had to actually be performed and not programmed. And if you made a mistake on tape, you had to record it again thus leaving no room for amateurs. Those were the days! This week’s new releases from the Cavendish, Poke and Deneb Records music libraries blend the sounds of yesterday with a fresh new twist. Think of it in the same vein as Dre and Snoop jamming with a hologram of Tupac, minus the whole rapping thing. Respect!
 
CAV317-319 Archive Remixed
 
The Archive Remixed series is a marriage of old Funk and Soul with the modern synthesizer. Unlike Kim Kardashian’s marriage, this one is built to last! These tracks are seething with confidence and all around bad-ass-ery. You may need to pull out your shades to even listen to it, you’ve been warned!

We ♥ You, NAB!

Ah yes, it’s the Monday after the 2012 NAB Convention. Our annual trek to Las Vegas is a combination of meeting up with old friends and making new ones in the whirlwind of the busy convention floor. That slight exhaustion mixed with a fond nostalgia is always a sign of another wonderful NAB experience!
 

 
For those of you who have never been in attendance, the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Convention is an annual event held in Las Vegas devoted to everything associated with making a production come to life. The elaborate booths both informative and interactive are always a sight to see! 2012 marks 5 Alarm Music’s 10th anniversary and we were up to the task of strutting our stuff!
 

 
Who says you can’t mix business with pleasure? We here at 5 Alarm have earned the reputation for throwing a pretty amazing party and this year was no different! Our second annual shindig at The Society Cafe in the Wynn Encore Hotel was a smashing success. We now have blackmail party pics on all who attended. I kid, I kid!
 

 
We would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth! Here is our 2011-2012 sizzle reel highlighting some of our hot new music placements.
 

 
We look forward to presenting more great music at next year’s show, see ya then!
 

Delving Into The Din Of Delirium: Quirky New Releases – 4/6/12

Making music is much like creating a painting. Sometimes you’re not in the mood to paint that pretty sunrise or an expansive mountain vista. Sometimes you just wanna squeeze a dollop of paint in your palm and smear it all around in a nonsensical swirl for no other reason than the fact that you can. And because let’s face it, rarely does life move along in a straight line!
 
This week’s weird and wild new releases from the Octopus Records, Amygdala, Deneb Records and Liftmusic libraries have some pretty awesome song titles to go along with the fun. My personal favs are Back Seat Funk, Bloody Rusty Saw, Frikin’ Bastard, Quickie Rock, Cheeky Chappy and Donde Es El Aeropuerto. So buckle up buttercup, let your hair down and get ready to get a little crazy!
 
OTP611 Eaten Alive!
 
In case you were wondering, the movie Eaten Alive! which appears to be filled with all sorts of awesomeness, really does exist! The plot synopsis according to IMDB is as follows: “A young woman teams up with an adventurer to find her missing sister in the jungles of New Guinea and they stumble upon a religious cult led by a deranged preacher whom has located his commune in an area inhabited by cannibals.” Ummmm…..yes please! With every amazingly horror-ble movie is an equally amazing score. OTP611 Eaten Alive! is that score. Please Octopus Records, send me the movie poster!

AMY027 Sensual Encounters
 
It seems like the couple making out in horror movies is always the first to get it. Keeping with this tradition, AMY027 Sensual Encounters reminds us that it doesn’t pay to make out when there’s a killer on the loose! Blending cheesy 70′s funk with tongue-in-cheek retro horror themes, this CD is bound to please any horror buff with an appreciation for the all-too-cliche pairing of sex and death.

DNB730 Psychedelic Symbolism
 
DNB730 Psychedelic Symbolism sounds a lot like a flashback. For those of you who dabbled in the 70′s, this one’s for you! Combining avant garde analog keyboards and spaced out jazz drum set grooves, this is definitely a CD to listen to with a black light on and incense alight.

LIFT071 Quirky Wacky Things
 
LIFT071 Quirky Wacky Things sounds like a musical clown raided the local thrift store and made a CD with an old Wurltizer, Casio drum machine and various souvenir percussion sold at Island resorts laying in the dark corners of the store. Being serious is a serious bummer!

Library Of The Week: Octopus Records
 

 
I have been very vocal about my love for Horror movies on this blog over the years. When I was informed that the Primrose Music Library unveiled their new period Horror movie score label Octopus Records, well, I was ecstatic! Beyond the fact that the album covers are amazing (I’m not kidding when I say that I want those movie posters….EBay?), these film scores from the 1970′s and 1980′s are the real McCoy. Not retro remakes, but real scores. Talk about street cred!! These tracks will add instant cool to any production, get on it!

Hot Stuff With No Fluff! New 5 Alarm Music Releases – 3/23/12

A lot goes into making a good record. I still use the word record even though music has gone the way of the MP3, call me old fashioned! When music hits you in all the right spots, it’s never an accident. The artistry behind the songs and production all come into play. Capturing sound and the best performance is an art in itself!
 
The 5 Alarm Music Library has two new and exciting additions to our catalog: 05A092 Soul Revival and CTM003 Cinemasounds Trailer Music 3! The continuous goal of going beyond what is expected from a music library is well realized on these releases. Our philosophy of quality over quantity ensures that our CDs are hot stuff with no fluff!
 
05A92 Soul Revival feels like a time machine taking you back to the Motown days of bee hive hairdos and all the way back home to 2012 where powerhouse singers like Adele and Florence + The Machine dominate the radio airwaves. This celebration of Soul blends positivity and emotional liberation all in one CD featuring a team of top notch composers – David Gross, Stephen Boyd, Christina Kaufman, Greta Matassa, Jim Rast, Bob Merrell, Keely Whitney and Paul Richardson. These powerful female vocal tracks pack some serious ‘tude and aren’t afraid to ruffle some feathers! It reminds us that sometimes she’s just not that into you either buddy, get over yourself! On the other hand, the gents sing their songs of seduction and a gratitude for our beautiful world. There’s a little something for every soul!

A Splash Of Local Color: New World Music – 3/16/12

When I moved to Los Angeles in 2004, I must admit I was typical of most LA transplants. I wanted to see the Hollywood sign and admire the stars that line the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard. These are the shrines of the entertainment industry after all! It doesn’t take long for you realize that seeing the Hollywood sign means having your friend take a picture a mile away from the actual sign while blocking traffic up Beachwood Canyon much to the dismay of those who actually live on the street. And seeing the stars on Hollywood Boulevard means walking the grimy street full of tacky gift shops full of cheap merchandise while getting your picture taken with a midget dressed like Mr.T for $5 (he gets mad if you don’t pay up front, just a heads up). The moral of the story? The locals know where to really go. Like the Magic Castle or the Hollywood Bowl for all of you about to visit LA!
 
This week’s new releases from the Cavendish Music, Pennybank Tunes and Amygdala Music libraries are refreshing splashes of local color as seen by the natives. Nothing Hollywood Boulevard about it!
 
CAV297 – CAV306 – ECK World Series
 
Be sure to bring your canteen and backpack on this expedition! This series containing 2 CD sets with authentic music from Africa, South America, The Middle East, South Asia and the Far East are the Real McCoy. The ECK series, or Editor’s Construction Kit, from the Cavendish Music Library is designed in layers so you can choose versions that best suit the production. For those of us not up to the challenge of backpacking through the Andes Mountains or the Sahara Desert, this is the next best thing!

5 Alarm Music Heats Up The Oscars

The 84th annual Academy Awards stormed through LA last Sunday like a Gucci-clad swashbuckler riding a white stallion! 5 Alarm Music may not have been swarmed with flash bulbs on the red carpet, but our music made its appearance in films nominated and awarded Hollywood’s highest honor. Move over, Meryl Streep!
 

 
The highly anticipated American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara definitely lived up to expectations! With five nominations including Best Actress, Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Mixing and Sound Editing, it makes this film a definite must-see.
 

 
I think everyone familiar with the Swedish version was curious how they were going to portray certain disturbing scenes. That chick is hard core! Listen for these two tracks from the Cavendish Music and JW Media Music catalogs:

Library Of The Week: Source In Sync
 

 
The Source In Sync music library is a completely lovable collection with more uses than a roll of duct tape! This ever-versatile music library comes from musical mastermind Stephen Edwards and has the unique distinction of being the first library 5 Alarm Music represented back in 2002. Whether it’s Django-tinged hot club jazz, classic crooner-styled big band, epic trailer choirs thundering out dramatic overtones, classic country songs from the 1960′s, urban soul straight outta Motown, grinding heavy metal, ethnic percussion, or heart wrenching solo piano, you are bound to find it all in the Source In Sync catalog! Yes, all that AND a bag of chips! Listen for yourself:
