Here we take a look at a selection of our work, and our philosophy towards it!

Soundtracks


Building an audio sound-scape to fit with visuals is always exciting, particularly when you are given creative freedom! From animation to film, the soundtrack is an element as vitally important as what's happening on-screen.



-
We produced the soundtrack to this popular children's animation - featuring theme music, narration and sound FX!



-
Although this Sci-fi drama only features a small cast of characters, it still required a full soundtrack of music, plenty of sound design and top-notch FX!



-
The sound track to this 10 hour (yes, 10 hour!) audio drama features a full cast of actors, sound design & FX, and haunting, ethereal music throughout!

Music Production & Composition


There are some really distinct stages to producing music - from writing, to recording, to editing, to mixing, to mastering. It's hard to say which stage is the most fun or the most difficult, because it changes with every single production!



-
We wrote, recorded and produced this super-catchy track for an upcoming indie-pop artist!



-
Another Inkwell-penned & produced song, this time with a gospel flavour to highlight the soulful style of this extraordinary vocalist!



-
A classically-inspired but gritty instrumental, composed and produced for the exciting introduction to part two of this Sci-fi audio drama!

Narration & Transcription


These two tasks have one thing in common - the need to reproduce a text with 100% accuracy. However, they do differ a lot in execution, with dramatic narration being a real skill. You know when you hear a good narrator!



-
A sensitive narration, and even some sound design was used for this insightful audiobook on the subject of psychology.



-
The tentative, pianistic introduction will not prepare you for the journey this audiobook takes you on. Featuring a sublime narration from actress, Caryl Jones.



-
An appeal on behalf of a large charity, featuring interviews with staff and service users, as well as some tasteful and unobtrusive use of music.

Mixing service


Ahh, mixing... possibly one of the most enjoyable, certainly one of the most challenging aspects of music production. There can't be many other things in life that require an approach which is 50% art, and 50% science!



-
In this example, a dense vocal arrangement is carefully treated and mixed to retain clarity on all the elements of the track. Targeted use of EQ, compression and panning results in a great mix.



-
Mixing a purely acoustic track is not without it's challenges, as the natural tone of each instrument needs to shine through, whilst creating a pleasantly balanced and spacious mix.



-
Once again vocal clarity and separation are the focus for this example in the R&B genre, and once again it's all about EQ and compression.
