From vital to life-threatening and from enriching to destructive – this is how intoxication and the pursuit of it affect human existence. The temporary exhibition “Rausch – Extase – Rush” at the Bernisches Historisches Museum will stimulate and deceive the senses of visitors from January 26 to August 13, 2023 with images, sound and information. Three of the exhibits were set to music by nice noise. We took the pulse of smokers and speeders, border crossers and hangers-on, and acoustically highlighted what releases dopamine in them. In addition, exciting facts about intoxication in evolution were revealed in our recording studio, and thanks to our modern equipment, a successful 3D audio sensory illusion was created.
The radio spots of the Zurich-based carpentry service Schreiner48 have been delighting listeners for years. Now a new series has been recorded with an orchestra at the storied Abbey Road Studio in London.
Countless hits in music history – from the Beatles to Pink Floyd to Lady Gaga – and countless film scores were created at Abbey Road. For once, however, the legendary studio wasn’t the place to record for a blockbuster like “Star Wars”; instead, an entire orchestra set about recording various subjects for the new series of radio commercials for the Swiss carpentry service Schreiner48.
The idea came about because Markus Walser from Schreiner48 asked us to create a re-recording of the legendary Mariachi Schreiner48 radio spot. But since it’s hard to find a good mariachi band in Switzerland, Bobby Gertsch and award-winning composer Moritz Schneider suggested recording the song with top orchestral musicians at Abbey Road Studio in London. nice-noise company owner Bobby Gertsch says, “The best musicians for orchestral recordings are found in Los Angeles or London, which is also where most of the soundtracks for Hollywood blockbusters are recorded.”
At Abbey Road Studio, four different subjects were added to the well-known SchreinerSong with the words of Udo Jürgens songwriter Wolfgang Hofer. In addition to the mariachi theme, the spot is also available in the form of an Italian operetta, a French musette and a Scottish bagpipe fanfare.
Thanks to its parodic approach, the new spot series makes listeners smile and reinforces the familiar, entertaining character of Schreiner48 spots.
How does the successful Swiss ski racer Wendy Holdener warm up before a winning downhill run? With an unsweetened Caffè Wendy? In any case, she toasts her gold medals with it. We were allowed to realistically record their rapid slalom ride including commentary by legend Berni Schär and applause. But her smile speaks for itself, of course.
In the land of cheese, it is difficult to choose individual specialties when shopping. That’s why the stories make the difference. The stories about the origins of regional cheeses were recorded in our studio and accompanied by appropriate sound design. Whether well researched or even better invented – the cheese stories go straight to the ears of Migros customers and shape their purchasing decisions at the cheese counter.
The Corona virus was the reason that countless concerts were postponed, festivals were cancelled and concert halls were closed. A shock for artists and a bitter loss for the audience. As a support for one of the affected industries, the Ghostfestival was created, which took place solely in the thoughts. The Ghost Festival spoke from the hearts of us culture creators, so setting the quadrilingual festival trailer to music was our donation to this unique project.
3D audio spots open up a new dimension of communication. They are the evolution of surround sound and even create the illusion that your own stomach is growling. To kick off the barbecue season, we created a 3D audio spot for Bell’s food specialists that starts where hunger originates and culminates in a big barbecue party. Be sure to listen to this commercial with headphones.
Are you tired of fast food? Or burger-bored? Subway inspires you to try something new with exotic creations. We set the spot for the CH launch of the Chicken Tandoori Sandwich to music in our studio in a way that underlines the fancy visuals as much as the core message.
The Appenzell singer-songwriter Marius Bear with the beary rough voice timbre is also internationally known since the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 at the latest. So that he can represent Switzerland in German playlists and full concert halls in a worthy manner, we have added a promotional soundtrack to the RTL promo trailer for his album “Boys do cry” and the upcoming German tour.
36 years after the incredible action movie success of “Top Gun,” fighter pilot Maverick returns to the big screen. The German-language radio spot promoting the movie was created in our studio. We’ve made sure that the jets will be whizzing around your ears and your anticipation for the sequel to the cult flick will pick up supersonic speed.
No legs, no limits – this is the credo of the protagonist Rüdi. Neither his amputated legs nor numerous misgivings prevent him from embarking on the 30-day sport catamaran adventure from Gibraltar to Palermo. Will the two men overcome the almost 4,000 kilometers under extreme meteorological, physical and human conditions? We were allowed to prepare the precious soundtrack of the impressive documentary film ready for cinema.
