Reel Music

Recommended Posts

the most alienating techno i can find.

 

no but seriously, ive noticed a lot of the ambient electronica you mentioned and im trying to stay away from it too personally. The main thing to think about though is what kind of music most closely matches your design style? A lot of reels have abstract/flashy stuff, so naturally youre gonna have a lot of abstract/flashy electro-music in reels. That and the track needs to have a certain level of energy in order to draw the viewer in. Ultimately youre probably better off finding some of your own favorite songs that energize you, since your taste in music probabbbllyy resembles your taste in design (ed hardy fans like nickelback, abercrombie fans like bieber, etc.) Maybe im stereotyping but its an easy place to start looking if you already have it on your computer.

I think people chose the electronic tracks because they're stupidly easy to edit to.

 

I'd like (as hell) to put Slayer on my reel, but I'll end up with electronic track, because it's more neutral to majority of listeners. I don't want my potential client to turn my reel Off just because Tom Araya's singing is too loud for him/her. I know it's opportunism, but my reel is going to win clients (I mean food, mortgage loan and so on) for me
