Here is a quick piece of music I put together for a friend’s animation!
His brief stated that it should not sound like the BBC News ident, so I decided to go in the opposite direction and mimic the bold, heroic style of the American news idents. I didn’t have a particular model for this, it’s just how I think a news ident could sound.
I enjoyed this little task, and actually I would like to create a few more news idents in different styles. I really like the techno/electronic sounds of Al Jazeera’s idents for its sports news, so perhaps I’ll try creating a similar sound to this next time.
The ident and more of my compositions can be heard over at my Soundcloud page.
Thank you for watching, reading, listening :)
