American Express 100 Years of Travel - Journeymakers - The Tao of Scottie

Original Music

Search Party takes a creative curatorial approach to original music composition to meet the unique musical needs of our clients in the worlds of film, television and advertising. Whether you’re working with our team of in-house composers and indie artists or drawing upon our extensive network of producers, songwriters and bands, we’ll ensure that the right artist creates a perfect original score for your project.

Licensing

As a company founded by music supervisors, placement and licensing has been our specialty for more than a decade. Our supervisors have helped some of the film world’s most discerning music fans (Wes Anderson, Floria Sigismondi, Mark Romanek and Noah Baumbach, to name few) create some of the most acclaimed film soundtracks in recent years. Finding the perfect track for your movie, commercial or TV program, negotiating the deal and handling the admin to ensure you come in on budget is what we’re all about.

Events

Just as Search Party’s composers pursue a myriad of personal musical projects outside our studios, so too so does our production team. Every year we organize several educational and branded events that explore the cross-section between music and moving images – from band showcases and film screenings to panel discussions and pop-up shops. Our recent events include panels for the Hawaii International Film Festival, a three-day artist showcase for optical brand Warby Parker at the 2012 SXSW Music Festival and screenings of music-related films for MusicFestNW in Portland.

Library

Our database of original music and cover songs by some of the music world’s top film composers, indie bands and pop producers is now searchable online. If you need something immediately and don’t have the time or luxury to spend demoing all-new material, our handy search engine allows you to peruse our library by genre, preview music and download samples.

Integrated Media

Licensing, curating and producing music for mobile apps, new media platforms and interactive ad campaigns is another area in which Search Party has a proven track record. Our recent projects include SPACE DUCKS, a gamified comic book iPad app for indie rock icon Daniel Johnston; BAND OF THE DAY, a Search Party-curated mobile app that was Apple’s runner up for app of the year in 2011; RAVE ON, a Buddy Holly tribute album for Starbucks and a downloadable album of original holiday songs for retailer Target.
