My name is Matt Fletcher and Noisy Creative is my online home and virtual office. Below are select examples of my final composition and sound design work to picture.
NC Tourism "Waterfalls" Film
Naomi Newman, with Ryan Coleman and Jon Cain at LGA, invited me to create music for this beautiful Firsts That Last campaign. “Waterfalls” is one of three long form films shot by Jake Oleson and edited by Spencer Campbell.
NC Tourism Anthem :60
A slowly evolving score supports “Anthem” which features visuals from all three Firsts That Last films.
PS4 Knack 2 - TV Commercial
A large orchestral score composed for Dan and Ann at South that plays a supporting role. Dialog, sound design, and VO are needy bedfellows.
Composed for Elijah and Keith at Massive Music
The North Face "I Train For"
Composed for David Wittman and Kala Sherman at Travis + Maude
BMW i3 – Newfangled Idea - Super Bowl
Composed for Dave and Kala at Travis + Maude. Intro bumper by Chip Jenkins.
Intel Look Inside Bob Staake
Music composed for Elias Arts
Tracy Locke Manifesto
Music composed for Kala and Witty at Travis + Maude. This manifesto is currently streaming on the Tracy Locke agency website.
CA Milk Board "Potato"
Composed for Dave and Kala at Travis + Maude
Robitussin Close Quarters
Sitcom intro/outro composed for Dave and Kala at Travis + Maude
Western Digital "Magic"
Composed for Elias Arts
Range Rover Awards
Composed for Elias Arts
I wrote the music for this spot for Elias Arts and loved the integration of the sound design and score. The end music was replaced at the last moment with the positive track heard here by Nate Morgan.
Monster Pinnochio - Super Bowl
Arranged for Elias Arts
TCM 31 Days of Oscar Theme 5
This was the fifth theme for the 31 Days family. Awesome TCM creative direction came from Pola Changnon and Tim Moore and production was handled by Tim Reilly. I handled creative direction on the music side through Elias Arts and Jeff Fiorello produced.
Cartoon Network City 60 Theme
This theme became the basis for all of the work created by the Elias team for the City era on Cartoon Network. We had a complete blast working on IDs, bumpers, songs, etc. that aired during a great period on the network.
TCM 31 Days of Oscar 2:30 Theme 1
One of the most enjoyable partnerships of my Elias career was with Pola Chagnon, Chuck Moore, and Tim Reilly from TCM. This was an updated version of the original theme for 31 Days of Oscar. We created a new theme each year between 2008 and 2013 with live orchestral string sections and a mix of contemporary accompaniment.
One of my all time favorite campaigns and partnerships with McKinney Silver. Created while I was with Elias Arts, this piece won an AICP award and the spot is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
Budweiser "Stick" Super Bowl
Produced and scored for the Super Bowl during my time with Elias Arts, the track includes a full live orchestra with bonus saxophones!
USOC Christie Rampone
This spot was part of a great USOC campaign featuring Olympic athletes and unique animation. I handled sound design and music for this one while with Elias Arts.
TAP Project - Donnie
While writing for Elias, this spot rolled in needing a backing track. My music plays a very minimal role, but I love the spot.
TCM 31 Days of Oscar 90 Theme 2
This was the fourth theme in the 31 Days family. The sweeping live strings brought the theme to life every year. TCM creative direction came from Pola Changnon and Tim Moore and production was handled by Tim Reilly. I handled creative direction on the music side through Elias Arts and Kala Sherman produced.
Boost Mobile - Wrestler
OK, so the music is only at the very end of the spot and it is hard to hear. But the spot cracks me up. Scored for Elias Arts.
Mnemonics, Logos, Sonic Branding
American Express Signature
Created for Elias ID, this signature was the basis for all of the branded content we created for American Express for quite some time (see the arrangement below for Jumbotron placement at the US Open).
Cisco Systems Signature ID
Composed for Cisco Systems through Elias Arts, this signature melody was utilized across all of the company's audio branded assets.
PBS Blu-Ray Logo
Composed for the Elias ID team, this audio logo served as a launching device for Bloomberg branded content online.
PBS People Logo
Definitely an oldie (and the video quality confirms that), but a recognizable audio logo that stuck around for quite a while. Created with Elias Arts.
PBS logo 3
AmEx Montage Video for US Open Jumbotron
As the title suggests, this is an arrangement of the AmEx melody for the Jumbotron at the US Open. Is was part of our Elias ID package of branded work for AmEx based on my signature theme (see above).
This is one version of the branded Cisco theme. It was later replaced on this spot by the Who. I guess if you have to be replaced, be replaced by the best?
Chivas Regal "Old Man"
Audi Quattro "Eskimo" 60
This is the long version of the original Audi Quattro "Eskimo" spot I scored while with Elias Arts.
This spot for Sprite was one of the first sound design jobs I got to really dig into for Elias. I added the music during the process and the last line "Oh! He took him to school!" as well for my demo. They had no choice but to keep it.
Mastercard "Icons" Super Bowl
The Mastercard "priceless" campaign gave me many chances to try new things at Elias. This track was a surprise marriage but fun in the end. It first aired during the Super Bowl.
Audi "Leaving It Behind Us"
Any project that simply asks for unique creative without limits is already a winner. Done with live musicians and an open mind for McKinney Silver at Elias. So much fun.
Vizio "Forge" - Super Bowl
This spot was quite the group effort at Elias Arts. I wrote the orchestral underscore that supports the various pop culture elements as well as some of the hits and stings. Many hands worked on this one between the sound design, Numa Numa remake, etc. Fun!
HotJobs "Chicken" - Super Bowl
This spot was created for the Super Bowl and features a live orchestra mixed with sampled hits and textures. With no VO in the mix, the music and sound design shine.
Another favorite from our Elias Arts collaboration with McKinney for Audi.
