The Barkers: Original Music
The second the Barkers began shooting motion they could see what was missing. Or better yet, they heard it. Right away they recognized the need for music. The kind that could elevate the imagery on screen and enhance the tone they were trying to create. Then after reaching maximum frustration level from all the cheesy knock-off, royalty-free options, Kristen leaned on her husband Chris’s 20+ years of experience writing original bangers.
With a musical resume that spans genres from folk to electronic music, and having worked with Grammy award winning producer Dave Cobb, Chris called on his good friend and current in house sound engineer Sean McConnell. And the duo quickly began writing and producing tracks and scores for television, film, and online digital content for brands like IAMS, Samsonite, HP, Microsoft, Crate & Barrel, Advocate, Always, Rue Magazine & Chicago Magazine. And they’ve also produced music for agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, HY Connect, Doner, and Blast Radius.
