(Nashville) JamSync has completed audio enhancement and authoring of Row-Loff Productions’ Shazam! Instructional DVD of percussion solos that accompanies John Pollard’s book of the same name. (www.rowloff.com)Image

Shazam! shows students what the solos in the book are supposed to sound like and what the stick technique looks like when played correctly. Each solo is performed in unique and often humorous settings.

“Some of the locations used camera audio for spoken intros and comic bits”, said JamSync’s Chief Engineer, K.K. Proffitt. “It was a challenge to try to separate the exhaust fan and fluorescent light buzz from the dialog in a kitchen scene without losing the sound of hamburgers frying on the grill. We found the Cedar Cambridge to be an invaluable tool for restoring the problematic location audio.”

“This was a fun project graphically”, said JamSync’s DVD author, Joel Silverman. “The client encouraged us to give creative input. We used a variation of their logo, which is on a musical staff, as the highlight graphic for the menu buttons. We used a complement of the book’s cover art for the menu backgrounds. They were very pleased with the design.”
