This is “The Dancer”- the second video of three that I had the pleasure of scoring for Jason Bateman and his company DumbDumb, as part of their campaign for Orbit gum. Ben Joseph and Spencer Griffin at CollegeHumor produced once again.
This was definitely the first request I’ve ever gotten for “cowboy stripper music”, heh. I put together a slow blues track with Rocco Labriola on telecaster & pedal steel (clean, and then distorted for extreme sleaziness!) Max Crowe handled bass and I added some honkytonk piano overtop.
I also whipped up a fast & light piano cue for the “transformation”, some light orchestration for the closing scene and finally a bit of über-generic club music for the intro.
