SAM’s Journey to the Far East!
We’re very proud of our international work for networks like Al Jazeera (Qatar), Alhurra (Middle East), India TV, GSP Sports (Romania), TRK (Norway), TRT1 (Turkey) … it’s a pretty long list!
A decade ago, we delivered music via FedEx – now we can FTP our latest mixes instantaneously. But in either case, we’re usually tracking and mixing in our Texas studio while our clients are a VERY long way away.
Sometimes, though, we have the opportunity to pitch, present, or deliver in person – such as when we helped launch Al Watan in Kuwait or our recent re-branding of the 5 CCTV China foreign language channels. And whether that’s a trip to the Middle East or to Beijing, it’s always exciting to be able to experience different cultures first hand!
Well, right now IS one of those “sometimes”, and I’m currently in the beautiful Balinese mountains in a town called Ubud. Earlier this week, Stephen and I were speakers at Promax Asia in Singapore giving a talk on the power of Sonic Branding.
The presentation was fantastic! And we even got to say hello to some old friends … friends like Stefan from Flint/Skallen – who we worked the CCTV project with – and Ian from Song Zu – whose music we license via our production music library The Vault.
Of course, 3 days in Singapore for a conference really isn’t the best use of all those hours on a plane to get here … so Stephen and I brought our better halves and hopped over to Bali, Indonesia!
Don’t worry, Stephen Arnold Music is still open for business, so feel free to give our staff back in Texas a call!
