The holidays are a sentimental time; along with good food and laughter, memories of times past and lost loved ones are shared among family and friends. Imagine the meaning that those memories would hold with restored photographs, music with special family meaning, and even the voices of those who are no longer with us on a one of a kind DVD. David and Jim Prues provide a unique way to treasure the past with Stories Live Forever. David and Jim offer custom-crafted video biographies on DVD that share personal and family histories, special occasions, even an ethical will – a chance for you or a loved one to describe the lessons you have learned and the hopes you have for your heirs. Old photos can be restored digitally as well, ensuring that time doesn’t fade those precious mementos. Corporate and non-profit videos are also available to chronicle company histories, executive biographies, retirement tributes and other noteworthy events. Visit the website for more information on how you can ensure that you’ll be making-and cherishing-memories for years to come!
2012 is drawing to a close and, though the New Year is not yet upon us, it’s creeping ever closer! In keeping with the theme of renewal, Ambient Studios has revamped its website for a fresh, modern feel with greater ease of navigation. Check it out today for studio information, including lessons (New Year’s Resolution #1: “I want to learn something new.”), recording (New Year’s Resolution #2: I want to get that album done.”) and custom music (New Year’s Resolution #3: “I want to make my website/movie/YouTube channel/etc…awesome!”). And now that you have your resolutions covered, get off of the computer and finish up that shopping, slacker!
Any time that I hear a song from my high school years, my mind is suddenly transported to a haphazardly decorated gym filled with awkward teenagers tugging at fancy clothes. Music evokes emotion like nothing else can; it has power, people. Ambient Studios can help you to bring that power to your project with customized music tailored to your specific vision. Original songs, licensed parodies, instrumental themes, underscores and soundscapes can all add emotion to your message, forging a deeper connection with your audience. Ambient Studios composers have worked with Disney Productions, 20th Century Fox Television, Miramax Films, RCA Records and many others to produce top quality custom music-let them do the same for you! Check out videos with custom scores by David here and here.
Fa la la la la… David is helping youngsters at Cincinnati Country Day school in Indian Hill bring on the holiday cheer! Musically inclined kids from grades one through twelve perform on the album, which features Christmas, Hanukkah and other holiday songs. For more information, give the studio a jingle!
This week Ambient Studios was featured on CLASSX radio. D.J. Eric Deters A.K.A. “the Bulldog” sat down for an interview with studio owner David Prues. Playful banter included Ambient Studios recently adding a second location downtown for live band recordings, the custom music scoring team, and the addition of video production to the list of services offered.
Calling all music lovers! If you’re looking to hone your existing musical skills or add a few new ones to your repertoire, Ambient Studios has what you need. David offers a fun and exciting way to learn in a laid-back and supportive environment; you’ll feel like you’re learning from an old friend. Whether it’s keyboard, voice, guitar, bass, or drums that you want to master, Ambient Studios will get you there. Call the studio or check out the website for more information!
If you were fortunate enough to make it to Midpoint, you may have made it on this list as well! Courtesy of Cincinnati City Beat, check out some highlights from the Best Tweets from MidPoint Music Festival 2012:
“Gratitude to @MidPointMusic for having me. One of the best festivals I’ve ever played. Thank you.”
“My feet are sticking to the floor but I am loving Turbo Fruits.”
“These people are athletes in entertainment.”
“Falling asleep to the tunes outside from #MPMF12 . I ❤ @OTRcincy & @WashingtonPark! Great night!”
“Thanks for being sweet. Had a blast and then some playing Arnold’s/WNKU stage.”
“I think I just had one of the best weekends if my life. I don’t want to stop. #MPMF @KansasBibleCo”
And, of course, my personal favorite:
“Reminder: Tim Mara’s yard isn’t a toilet. Hot tip: Enquirer bldg downtown I believe has restroom facilities open 24 hrs. #MPMF”
Guitar virtuoso, composer and author Bobby Fisher brightened the studio recently with his kind spirit and some amazing acoustic guitar. Bobby’s no slouch; he’s played with studio musicians who’ve supported hugely popular acts and lent distinctive guitar licks to soaps including All My Children, One Life to live, Another World, and The Guiding Light. But success hasn’t hardened Bobby’s heart-the Renaissance man remains committed to using his music for peace, unity, understanding, equality and economic justice for all people. Check out all of the good he’s doing for music (and the world) here!
