MICHAEL W. BELL - Revenge Is Sweet

AEP00012 - Single

We recently released “Revenge Is Sweet" a single cue by Michael W. Bell… The cue was originally written for the trailer for “Blanket”, a short film Mike scored some years ago. After years of it being on the shelf, we dusted it off, gave it a bit of a mix and decided to let it go free! Mike explains his cue as “musical storytelling focusing on bittersweet romantic themes, sadness, resentment, anger and of course, vengeance! Some of usual suspects when dealing with a thriller”

Find it now on all major streaming services as well as in our store.

Æ HAR DET BARE BRA: In The Festivals

We have just heard that Meredith Strandquist’s “Æ Har Det Bare Bra”; a short animated film Mike designed the sound for has been entered into the festivals!

The film was shown at the following film festivals during 2013, winning 3rd place on two occasions and receiving some great feedback from Innsbruck, very well done Meredith!

Winner in 3rd Place

“With minimal financial means the producer has managed to create an animated film which has moved all of us – because in only 60 seconds it transports more content than many a 90-minute documentary. The hero, drawn in a simple caricature style, is a polar bear – the emblematic animal of climate change – who has resigned himself to his fate. He lives in a house, opens the refrigerator when he is hungry and makes himself a sandwich with canned tuna and iceberg lettuce. Then he casts a nostalgic glance out of the window where his world melts away and sighs: Aren’t I lucky? The short story impresses the audience with its style, subtle humor and the serious, even sad message – and thus deserves the third prize.”

Maritime Discoveries


AEP0001 - Single

We are extremely excited to have released our first single which is on it’s way to the major digital music stores as we speak.

Maritime Discoveries is a dark ambient track designed by Michael W. Bell while he was at university. The track is build up entirely of “found sound”, no instrumentations have been used. Mike fused, stretched, pitched, layered, faded, reversed and essentially went a little mad during the design, which he says happened during a single evening.

We think the track is a perfect underscore to an underwater scene and very much hope ambient music lovers and underwater film makers will enjoy the track. Look out for it on your chosen music streaming platform, or pick up the track in our store.
