Presence Horns - in the moment and for the future!
We offer horn solutions to your track, whether you need a single line or a bigger section. Through our network of horn players we can accommodate requests for trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, saxophones, low brass and woodwind - for a recording session or live. Our section size ranges from one to five members where two or three being the most popular. Our musicians double instruments and utilizes effect pedals which allows you to hire two musicians but get five or six instruments/voices. We also work online and will record parts for you no matter where you live.
The creative process for Presence Horns is simple; after finding and editing the music a lead line is formed through improvising live while being filmed with visual effects projected on the wall. One to four additional voices are then added off camera, taking phrasing, dynamics and instrumentation into account. The last step is mixing the audio track in Logic and then synchronizing audio with video in Final Cut Pro so it is ready for Youtube, Instagram and Facebook. It is then uploaded and shared for the world to enjoy!
