Eddie Slick the Sports Organist / Wannabe Jingle Composer
This radio series was created for Borden Dairy who was sponsoring both the Oklahoma Blazers and the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. The concept of an overly ambitious organist who, now that he has his big chance, begins to create other versions and remixes of his jingle.
This first two in the series aired and the rest are rough demos made for later rotation. I've decided to share all of these as a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process with composer/engineer Scott Johnson and voice talent Christopher Miller. While I had the lyrics down, we improvised in the studio using Scott's compositions/keyboard awesomeness, loops, and music beds. The melodies along with performances were first or second takes by Christopher complete with his many ad libs for the endings. Some are fun, some are cheesy, and some are kind of self-indulgent. For me it's a nice look at how fun the creative process can be.
