Take a tour of New York in the new Levi's "Commuter" film

Levi's just released the first of their new "Commuter" summer series of films, and things couldn't have started with more style. We had a lot of fun working with our buddies at Instrument on this one.

This inaugural video rides around NYC with Kyle Garner, owner of Sit and Read Furniture. The scenery is bustling and full of life, showcasing the grit and beauty that is to unique to The Big Apple.

As mentioned previously in an earlier post, Marmoset's Original Music Team took the path of a modern Motown vibe, crafting a chill, vintage sound that resonates cooly fresh, yet at the same time, familiar and timeless.

Using the city as a muse, we paid respect to the urban landscape while adding a flare of soul into our score.

Starting out with warm bass grooves and organ textures, the soundtrack lays a rich bedding underneath the narration throughout the film. Keeping things steady, the music ascends into focus with lively percussion and horn arrangements, bursting out at the seams.

Stay tuned for more explorations in this Levi's exclusive film series.

In celebration of their 10th year in making unique furniture from found wood. The gents at UHURU reflect on their humble beginnings and how they built their business, one chair at a time.

Based in Brooklyn, founders Jason Hovarth and Bill Hilgendorf take material that was once rejected and reuse them to create something beautiful. Based on the philosophy of environmental sustainability, their contemporary designs have found themselves in esteemed locations such as the Smithsonian and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

At the core, UHURU creates pieces of art. Taking something that was once discarded and putting it into a different context, telling a different story.

Supported by the empowering original score "Celestial South," in a great collaboration with our buds at Rock*it Films, check out their inspiring story below. 

Music + Picture // Studio Dunn

From secret sketchbooks to public works of art, dig the dreamy short film about an artist and his lament of love toward his craft.

We take great pride in what we do when we get to see where our music lands in the world. When the new film from Carlos Toro and his team at Steer surfaced, we were simply awe struck and excited to share the wonderful work that they've been up to.

In this beautiful artist portrait of Asher Dunn, founder of Providence, RI-based Studio Dunn, we get a glimpse of the artistic process behind his unique furniture designs. With an intimate feel to the entire piece, many of the shots focus on how organic materials are formed into innovative works of art.

Drew Barefoot brings an ethereal score with the song "Enjoy The Calm," honing in on the reflective state of the film. The light and hopeful music presents a perfect bedding under Dunn's moving narrative. Get inspired with this one...
