duotone was proud to work on a series of 5 spots for Google in honor of World Teacher Day. Comprising four 90 second films and one 60 second anthem, the spots feature a diverse cast of inspiring teachers who use innovative techniques to engage their students.
Each of the spots required a very different approach to help bring out the personality and humanity of their teachers and classrooms, so duotone created 5 separate pieces of music drawing on a wide variety of genres, from blues, to orchestral, to post-rock.
At duotone we know how important teachers are to the future of our children and the betterment of this world, and we are extremely proud and honored to have worked on such a great set of films! #ItTakesATeacher
Ulta and the team at Mullen were looking for the ultimate collaboration for their Lose Yourself campaign… And they found it with duotone audio group and Genevieve.
After a long round of license searching, the duotone team was able to make a connection with Genevieve’s song “Show Your Colors”. The sentiment was perfect for the brand, but they wanted a more upbeat version that expressed the vitality and warmth that ULTA represents. To this end duotone created two custom remixes using the original stems, one for the main campaign and one with a little extra holiday flavor.
After everything we are so excited to present this campaign, which shows just how perfect it is when the right brand works with the right artist and the right music house to create perfect harmony.
Even an asshole can save a life…
And in this new Donate Life film with The Martin Agency, we learn just how easy it is for any asshole to donate their organs and do a little good.
The film features a moving rearrangement of Coldplay’s “Fix You” by duotone’s own Civil Brother, and a masterful mix by duotone audio post. And the star power doesn’t end there… It features Thomas Jane in the title role, and VO by the indomitable Will Arnett.
We were incredibly honored to be a part of this moving, funny, and important campaign.

For Rio 2016, Chobani decided to sponsor a diverse and talented group of Olympians from Team USA. Representing a range of disciplines and backgrounds, these athletes represent the best of what Team USA has to offer to the world stage.
Our long time partners and friends at Opperman Weiss came to us again to help them capture the pain and triumph of these Olympic contestants as they struggle to reach their goal of standing on the podium in Rio. We created the theme and music to accompany the entire campaign, and modeled the music for each athlete individually, creating a score that ties together all of the films, but leaves room to highlight each individual’s personality and story.
We are proud and honored to have created music for such incredible films, and we wish the best to Team Chobani and Team USA!
Season 2 of Netflix and The Weinstein’s Marco Polo dropped July 1st, and if you thought Season 1 was big… You are in for a wild ride.
Of course the Khan himself is back… The Khan being duotone’s own Peter Nashel, who along with co-composer Eric Hachikian, created an epic and earth rattling score for the new season. And this time we brought out the big swords, bringing in Jigjiddorj Nanzaddorj all the way from Mongolia to record authentic morin khuur, synthesizing a perfect East meets West soundtrack to accompany the twists and turns of Season 2.
So glue yourselves to your couch this weekend and catch up on all the new episodes… And if you want some more details on how the score was created, take a look at writer and creator John Fusco’s blog here: http://www.john-fusco.com/the-music-of-marco-polo/
