The core of Johnny Raw’s studio work lies in the synergy between image and sound.
Music & Sound Design coming from the Johnny Raw Studio has very specific features.
This quality makes it very well suited for image, storytelling, advertising and branding.
Whether it concerns engineering, producing or composing, emphasis is put on the storytelling aspect.
Being a great match for music & sound to image, art projects or commercials alike, it puts experience, perception, atmosphere and creating a sound-image first.
Johnny Raw’s music found its way to national radio and television, feature film, documentary, Universal library, fashion show, commercial, event park, pop outfits, museum, audiobook, audiotour, theatre, dance and performance.
“….Obviously, since all these features and qualities come together in the sounds I love to create, I would love to explore new ways of organizing sound for you as well…”
Storytelling Music & Sound for Image, the Art and Advertising!
For the thrill of what comes next….
Music that supports storytelling is often very minimal and brings across emotion in an enticing way without being obtrusive.
It offers room to breathe, is spacious and uses silence as an important ingredient.
Sounds that are used are characteristic, well balanced and authentic. Predominantly, they address the unconscious.
Emphasis is put on tone and atmosphere over traditional musical structure as it focuses on creating a mood through timbral qualities and specific ways of organising these sounds.
“And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time”
