Phoenix, AZ (April 14, 2006)–audioEngine|West recently completed an original music score, sound design and mix for a two-part special, The Ten Commandments, on the History Channel.
For audioEngine|West, the project marks an ongoing collaboration with director Geoffre Madeja and Mindworks Media. Last year, aE|west created music, sound design and final mix for the Madeja-directed The Templar Code, which recently earned composer Jason Camiolo and sound designer Aaron Casey each a Silver Telly award, for original score and sound design, respectively.
History Channel’s 2-part special examines the three different–and sometimes contradictory–biblical accounts of Moses on the Mount, and then looks at each of the 10 Commandments in historical context.
“Geoffrey’s shows are always an interesting challenge from a scoring point of view,” said Camiolo. “I especially enjoyed the fact that this show allowed me the chance to expand musically. By not having to stick to one time period, parts of the show permitted some modern music as well as more traditional orchestral pieces.”
As with The Templar Code, Camiolo scored this show on a Mac G5 using Logic Pro 7.1 and IK Multimedia’s SampleTank2. He relied heavily on IK’s new Philharmonik Miroslav for his orchestral sounds and SonicSynth2 for ethereal effects and scene transitions. In addition to the talents of Camiolo and Casey, audioEngine|west’s Bob Giammarco contributed final mix to the TV special.
Part 1 of The Ten Commandments premiered Wednesday, April 12 and will be repeated on Easter Sunday (April 16) at 6pm ET. Part 2 premiers Thursday, April 13 at 8pm ET (and will air again on Easter Sunday at 7pm ET).
