Saint Thomas Health recording session
Nashville, TN (May 12, 2014)—Hummingbird Productions recently wrote and produced orchestral productions for three special new projects for its diverse clientele.
Hummingbird Productions was requested by the Government of Uganda in Africa to write and record a new rendition of that country’s national anthem. The new orchestral score, written by Farnsworth, will be presented during a special event to be held in that country in conjunction with its upcoming 52nd anniversary in September 2014.
Farnsworth and his team will be traveling to Uganda in late April to record 1,000 voices of native Ugandan people, including young children. Farnsworth and team will then head back to Ocean Way Studios in Nashville to record the full orchestration of the piece, integrating the vocal recordings.
Nashville, TN-based Saint Thomas Health recently turned to Hummingbird Productions for an original orchestral score to accompany their new “Nothing Shall Be Impossible” television and online video promotional campaign. The campaign debuted May 5, 2014. Farnsworth wrote the piece, working through the Bohan Ad Agency, and creative director Rich Paschall. The score was recorded at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studios. The producer was Penny Rahe, the arranger was Don Hart, and Bobby Shin engineered.
For “Lights,” a new campaign through client Lawler Ballard Van Durand Advertising of Birmingham, AL, which promotes Alabama Power, Hummingbird recorded another orchestra at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville. The music from that session is featured within new 15- and 30-second spots which just broke across Alabama.
The campaign’s executive creative director Rich Paschall said, “The spot is something of a mini-epic, so we needed music that would not only support—but enhance—the swell and drama of the visuals. Hummingbird Productions delivered in spades, as usual, with a truly inspired track that captured the mood and the vision of the spot. Working with Bob Farnsworth and Hummingbird is always a pleasure.”
