Air-Edel have 50 years of experience working across all manner of media productions, including film, television, commercials, games, theatre, podcasts, and trailers, and across a range of budgets, from micro-budget to Hollywood blockbusters. Our involvement can span from conception to post and everything in between, and can be as straightforward as clearing a specific piece of music, to managing an entire music department across pre, production and post.
Recent projects have seen us:
- Provide music choices to create a specific sonic landscape, with recent series including ‘I May Destroy You’, ‘The End of the F***ing World’, and ‘Sex Education’.
- Work closely with the production team on set to ensure accuracy and authenticity for specific musical scenes. E.g. Baroque arrangements and recordings for ‘Catherine the Great’, 60s club jazz performance for ‘The Trial of Christine Keeler’, and coordinating large medieval choral scenes for Netflix feature film ‘Outlaw King’.
- Negotiate and licence musical selections provided by the director, utilising our longstanding relationships with publishers and labels to ensure fair prices and sufficient rights coverage, most recently with Ricky Gervais for ‘After Life’ series 1 and 2 for Netflix.
- Coordinate recording sessions for external composers, utilising the best UK contractors and musicians/singers for score recording at our own studio, or larger UK studios where required. Working with our network of freelance orchestrators, arrangers, musical directors and copyists we are experienced at putting a complete music team together.
We have experience working with studios, indie production companies, and all major streaming platforms including Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Hulu and more. Some of our recent supervision work includes ‘Giri/Haji’ for Sister Pictures and Netflix, Clerkenwell Films series ‘The End of the F***ing World’ for Channel 4 and Netflix, HBO’s ‘I May Destroy You’ by Michaela Coel, BAFTA-winning series ‘The Little Drummer Girl’ for Endeavor Content and Amazon.
