Chroma: Sampler Vol. 01
Chroma made their debut in epic fashion with Sampler Vol. 01, a collection of 65 cues perfect for blockbuster movie trailers.
The company “kickstarts its sonic enterprise with a 65-track showcase album” which “spans the full range of styles from dark hybrid to epic orchestral sounds, ready to score any contemporary campaign with attitude to spare”, as Chroma explains. It is “both massive in size and sound”… and “only the beginning!”
Sampler Vol. 01 was recorded in Macedonia (with a full string orchestra) and Budapest (brass and choir).
The album was composed by Lucas Vidal, Daniel Belardinelli, Chris Lord, Jochen Flach, Erik Ekholm and Kully B / Gussy G, mixed by Greg Townley, Rob Beaton and Jack Trammell, and mastered by Robert Vosgien at Capitol Studios. The creative director of this project is Chris Ramsdell, co-founder of the company.
Several preview tracks are available for listening on Chroma’s website.
Chroma is a brand new company, focusing on music for motion picture advertising. It was founded by composer Lucas Vidal and award-winning music supervisor Chris Ramsdell, who has placed music in campaigns for movies such as The Hunger Games, Django Unchained and Transformers. He was also nominated for “Best Original Score” at this year’s Golden Trailer Awards for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Besides Sampler Vol. 01, their catalog also features Strike-Slip Fault, a collection of percussive sound design cues composed by Joey Peters, and mixed and mastered by Cliff Lin. A third album, Playing With Fire, is due out soon.
Chroma’s music is currently not available to the public for purchase. For licensing information, contact the company.
