As you folks know that I am not just a news junkie but a nerd to the surface of news production too, and that #NewsMusicMonday isn’t just a random feature. However, just because jam to the tunes on the news, doesn’t mean that was my intent with my work with BCOP TV and radio. The reason why my music was blasted so loud over the years, was the lack of understanding basic audio engineering. (which I’ll cover for another day)
If 615 Music’s Propulsion and WSFL’s First Report had a baby… lol it would be News Smile!
Since the Granite State doesn’t have much media diversity… let’s get involved!
News Smile is a cut in the Individual Themes from 11/One Music (aka 615 Music v2… not an original one sorry!). If 615 Music’s Propulsion and WSFL’s First Report had a baby… lol it would be News Smile! It has a summer-esque/Floridian feel (First Report) with a high energy cut (Propulsion).
It help that the cover girl is a cute brunette, I actually shared that as an Instagram story a while back when 11/One posted that image, but that was well before I heard News Smile! So yeah, cuteness sells! lol. Ironically the video I rolled from Portsmouth, NH in November 2022, was in the upper 70s!
This is one of my first few themes I’ve spliced, extended, etc which is a standard thing amongst promotions and creative services peeps. Obviously I don’t own the rights to the music but the video of NH’s Seacoast is my own collection of B-roll!
Sidenote: This post has been updated to reflect that I explicitly shared this with the intention of 11/One being aware (you know the fan community is so small and gets few viewers anyways.) I did tag them after posting this, and to share their work as for creatives to be inspired with newer news music themes. This post was put to private for a few days after initially posting this to ensure following the rules because…
As previously mentioned, 615 Music is no more than just brand, the musicians started up 11 One/Music about a couple years ago, but broke out last year. Unlike the original Quarter Past Six, they’ve broken out immediately, not over a decade.
I used some Portsmouth footage again, but this time I synced about 30 seconds of music to a single track called News Smile. It’s fitting for what has been going on with me. The album photo is a couple and a child on a beach, which has a summer like feel. This week did feel like summer here in New Hampshire. While I didn’t have the near 80° weather from Portsmouth in November handy, I thought heck, the music makes me feel happy.
This cut I found has a similar music and melody from First Report, the theme used for WSFL in some ways. At least with this 1/2 witted mind is thinking
