Santa Monica, CA – February 8, 2018 – Award-winning music, sound design, and production company, Endless Noise announce their studio’s expansion into longform children’s entertainment with their work on two Amazon Studios television shows, “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie,” and “The Stinky and Dirty Show,” both broadcast on Amazon Prime.
Endless Noise are best known for composing innovative music and sound design for TV commercials, viral videos (Pentatonix), feature films, podcasts and video games. Working with leading Ad Agencies like Innocean, Deutsch LA, Doner and Saatchi & Saatchi, Endless Noise has been composing and producing award-winning music and sound for international brands such as Hyundai, Uber, Ram Trucks, Nike, Volkswagen, Snapple, Kia and Pizza Hut for over 20 years.
Founder, Composer and Creative Director of Endless Noise, Jeff Elmassian has led the team further into the children’s entertainment market after winning a Grammy Award – “Best Musical Album for Children”- for his work producing the soundtrack and songwriting for Sesame Street’s feature film, “The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.”
That work on “The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland” led The Henson Company to hire Endless Noise to compose the musical score for their Amazon Studios’ pilot, “Lily the Unicorn” in 2015.
Although the pilot never made it to a series, Amazon Studios and Music Supervisor Rossanna Wright returned to hire Endless Noise as series composers for Season 1 of the television series adaptation of the classic children’s book series, “If You Give a Mouse A Cookie” featuring original songs by Grammy-award winner Lisa Loeb. The show was released on Amazon Prime November 7, 2017. They’re currently in production on Season 2, due out later this year.
Elmassian comments: “Why do people like being around children? They’re honest, straightforward, deeply sensitive emotionally, intuitive and almost entirely unaffected by trends and fashion. These are exactly the same reasons I love writing music for them.”
The studio also produced the soundtrack for the second season of another popular kids’ TV series, “The Stinky & Dirty Show” which was released on Amazon Prime November 23rd, 2017 and is nominated for a 2018 Annie Award for Best Animated Television Broadcast Production for Preschool Children for the episode “HaHaHigher /The Waiting Game.” The series features original songs by singer/songwriter Dan Bern. Endless Noise arranged and produced Bern’s original songs as performed by the characters in the show as well as produced, mixed and mastered the soundtrack album versions with vocals by Dan Bern. They’re already in production on the soundtracks for upcoming Seasons 3 & 4.
“I think what drew me towards writing music for children’s programming is that once you strip away the genre conventions, the work is about supporting characters and storytelling for an audience that values substance and emotional honesty above all else. Kids don’t care what’s popular. They laugh when they find something funny, cry when they find something sad and cheer when they find something exciting. What could be more satisfying than writing music for an audience like that?” says Elmassian.
As a collaborating partner with Danger Pigeon: The Character Agency, Endless Noise have produced live-action and animated television commercials for General Mills for joint promotions with films such as Trolls, Batman vs Superman, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens; composed the music for animated shorts such as Tennessee Tuxedo and web-series Squinkie “Do Drops” for the hot collectible figures made by Blip Toys and the 2017 Platinum Pixie Award Winner, Lili & Torto’s Opposite Show for Sesame Studios. To date, they’ve created over a dozen productions together, including several live-action TV spots and animated shorts.
They are currently working with Danger Pigeon to score animated shorts featuring McGruff the Crime Dog.
“I’ve had the honor of working with Endless Noise for over a decade, and I’m luckier for it. Their work is world class, always surprising, and always ratchets up the quality of our work to ‘eleven,’ “says Pat Giles, COO/Creative Director of Danger Pigeon.
