Regardless of the style, length or mood, the production of music is always going through the same process. While doing so, every step offers endless possibilities of individualisation. Although there is a natural sequence of steps, the path does not necessarily have to be in straight fashion. Sometimes it can be helpful to take a step back in order to finally achieve the best result with creativity and experience.
True to your wishes and expectations IMAscore produces music which is unique in terms of emotion, skill, professional standards and sound.
The conception is the important »first step« for small as well as large projects. It is important to recognize how many and which parts of the puzzle are necessary, so that finally a coherent picture develops. Of course this »big picture« can show light and dark areas- important is, that even the disorder is well organised. The solution of this paradox is the art of the conception.
IMAscore produces for you the »big whole complete« which captures the message and mood of your project in a multi-facetted and unique way and enriches it by a sound layer.
The term composition, often also used as a general term in music production, describes the finding of the melody. The continuously growing arrangement of notes and harmonies, played by varying instruments is tuned to a fine sounding tone by the composer. Many aspects of music, like the mood and in large parts also the style, are defined in this step. Here the notes meet, which characterise your musical work.
IMAscore composes melodies, which have a significant autonomy. Good music contains a message. You have the chance to define its content and to reach the listener on a particular level.
The final step of the production is mainly technically orientated. The complete musical work develops from the composition. At this stage one is always in front of the decision, if a real or virtual orchestra shall be used. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, in terms of sound however they are similarly impressive through most modern recording options. Also at other music directions the possibilities are numerous. Often enough it is a balanced choice between real and virtual instruments, which offer the most dynamism and authenticity.
Finally the musical work has to be mixed and mastered, to offer crystal clear sound and continuous quality on all playback systems.
IMAscore possesses multiple capabilities to use both, virtual and real instruments, for productions of all kinds and in doing so make a suitable offer for every budget. Our professional mixing- and mastering techniques always guarantee a perfect sound for all application areas.
Objects also have a voice and their credibility stands or falls with a well shaped sound design. The enormous responsibility confronts the sound designer with new challenges again and again, and the solution requires a high degree of creativity and sound sensitivity. The capability to bring life into silent things is the great art of sound design.
IMAscore produces phonetically credible and creative sound design, which meets the most professional requirements. We give a voice to objects and create a world of sound ambiance for your projects.
An example why conception also plays a role in sound design: In the game branch you often ead through »assets«. Basically they are lists of required sounds and atmosphere for certain action and events. But sound design can do more than create just sounds. Intelligently designed there are various possibilities to tell complete storied by sounds and provide details which go beyond the level of the urgently necessary.
IMAscore creates sound design concepts for you, which are more than pure lists of required sounds. We find the creative way for your projects with sounds to achieve more than just making sounds for events.
An extensive sound archive is often the basis for every sound design. Many times the required sounds are so special, that it becomes necessary to record them yourself. That is the only way to achieve a result which is not only individual but also completely natural in the context and just appears to suit just perfectly.
IMAscore does not only rely alone on their large sound archive. The chance to record sounds does not only increase the creativity, but also the individuality of your project enormously.
The production of the sound designs includes in large parts the integration of previously recorded or already existing sounds in your archive into at the beginning sound deprived rooms. Certain events shape these rooms and the events become visual or acoustic, for example through a story told by a speaker. In this way single sounds fill up the sound spectra and are able to create complete atmospheres, which on their own already possess an incredible atmospheric significance.
Apart from a good understanding for the sound elements, the capability to combine sounds creatively and in doing so to create something completely new is of enormous importance.
When IMAscore Sound Design produces for you, the quality plays a big role. This can be found then in the tone of each separate sound but also in the sensitivity with which detailed sound atmospheres and even completely new sounds are created.
