ODG054 : Alessandro Baris / Faces

Alessandro Baris was the drummer and composer of the band Comfort (see OCD010) and is part of the duo Collisions (see ODG035 and ODG036).
This time, he was asked to compose the music for a commercial.
Though the add is only 15 secondes, he decided to extend the track to a complete song called Faces.
Here is what Alessandro is saying about it:
"The song was commisioned to me by a video production; they asked for a music that would have bring on positive and suggestive feelings in order to place it on a commercial for a famous italian apple brand that they were shooting and editing for. Even though my main instrument is drums I ended up composing a piece just for piano, strings and bass, with a classical music taste and using the pizzicato and the piano riff to give rhythm.
Aside from few works into cinema's soundtrack this is been my first jingle ever but in the end it worked out so well."

Here it is for you to discover.
Digital release on the 6th of May 2016.
