Ushering in a season of sizzles, decks and montages, ALIBI Music has released a new album and several playlists that provide plenty of sonic ammo for upfront presentations. The production music company was ideally positioned to develop such music, tapping the firsthand experience of key staff members who had come from the client side and cut their share of upfront presentations.

“When everyone’s competing for the same ad budgets, you need music that helps elevate your programming above everyone else’s,” said Joseph Miller, ALIBI’s VP, Creative Licensing. “Finding the right track can make or break an upfront presentation, so it’s vital to have choices in energy, tone and structure. This is what we kept in mind with the release of ALIBI’s newest album and upfront presentation playlists.”

  • Exciting Orchestral (11 tracks, 472 audio files, Listen) is an emotive and rousing collection of adventure-filled orchestral cues. Full of hope, awe, wonder and magic, these epic building cues are packed full of staccato strings, triumphant heroic brass and thunderous orchestral drums. All of this is masterfully arranged and blended with subtle emotive pianos, tubular bells and lush lingering pads, making this album ideal for network slate sizzles or theatrical montages.

Three new ALIBI playlists expand on the options for network marketers, curating production music fitting for three very different types of presentation vibes:

  • Network ‘Best Shows’ Sizzle – Orchestral (32 tracks, Listen) These are statement pieces…orchestral tracks with big backends that are great for montages of dramatic and inspiring material, when you want to say, “We have the best stuff, and we will now WOW you with our slate!”
  • Punchy Comedy Promos (50 tracks, Listen) The thump of a drum, the bump of bass, clappy rhythms, stabby horns—these are just some of the sounds that bring “punchy” to a promo. Punchy is fun to edit comedy to, and when it also has the zippy pacing of these tracks, you’ll make your audience feel like they’re about to be on the funnest comedy ride of their lives!
  • Upbeat Pop Underscores (146, Listen) Curated for both unscripted and scripted shows, this playlist is packed with modern pop sounds of today to give your show a fresh and current feel. Melodies and beats keep things lively without overwhelming the plentiful dialogue.

ALIBI tracks have been used to promote such recognized series as “The Blacklist” (season 10 trailer), “The Last of Us” (Sky promo) and “Stranger Things” (final season 4 trailer), among many others.
