Composer Nathan Wang recently stepped into Firehouse Recording Studios (Pasadena, Calif.) to record music for The Remarkable Promise, a nine-minute video shown on the final night of the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Created by award-winning documentarian James Moll, the video showcased Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry’s lifetime of service.
Composing to film, Wang recorded a 19-piece string orchestra, two woodwinds and a trumpet player in Firehouse’s Studio A. All tracks were recorded, edited and mixed in Pro Tools. “I also brought in some pre-recorded French horn, bassoon and piano elements recorded on Pro Tools,” said Wang. “These tracks were plug-and-play-compatible with the live sessions.”
