Los Angeles, CA (December 8, 2011)—Super Sonic Noise recently provided music and sound services for the new four-part documentary More Business of Being Born.
Super Sonic Noise's Jason Moss composed the theme and original music for the series, released on DVD earlier this month, and also served as music supervisor, sound designer and music editor. Additionally, the series utilized SSN TRAX, Super Sonic Noise's boutique custom library of underscore tracks.
More Business of Being Born is the follow-up to the 2008 documentary from executive producer Ricki Lake and filmmaker Abby Epstein, The Business of Being Born, for which Super Sonic Noise also provided music. The new series continues the film's examination of the modern maternity care system, offers a look at alternative birthing options, and features celebrity birth stories from Alanis Morissette, Christy Turlington-Burns, Cindy Crawford and others.
Moss notes that the series covers a wide emotional spectrum and all of its different tones are reflected in the music. "Much of it has an inspirational, feel-good quality, but there are also darker, pensive and melancholy moments," he says. "SSN TRAX was a good resource for this project because much of it has a handmade, filmic quality."
"Our role was simply to be good team players in serving the series," Moss said. "It's a project of passion and we wanted to be supportive and do whatever was needed."
The original documentary left a deep impression on Moss and so he welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the new series. "We believed in the project and in the content," he said. "We were proud to be a part of it, because it's an important and groundbreaking subject. It's something you do to feed the soul."
