Los Angeles-based Helix Collective performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of world, classical and rock n’ roll. The ensemble is at home in nightclubs and on the concert stage from a residency at Los Angeles’s venerable Silverlake Lounge to performances for the West Michigan and Pacific Symphonies. Helix “has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal” (Audiophile Audition Magazine). Called “dizzyingly virtuosic with exquisite musicianship and world-class range” by The Free Times and praised for their “beyond-the-ordinary programming,” the flexible instrumentation ensemble includes flutes, oboe/English horn, cello, piano and percussion. The group has released two critically acclaimed albums, All In and World Dance Club and has recorded scores for over 20 films.
Academy of Scoring Arts
The mission of the Academy of Scoring Arts is to advance the creative and technical process of scoring visual media by bringing together composers, filmmakers, audio engineers, and musicians to share knowledge through the production of educational programs and community events. The Academy of Scoring Arts was founded in 2009 by legendary composer, orchestrator, and arranger Ron Jones. With over three decades of experience and two Emmy nominations under his belt, Jones has always looked for ways to express himself both musically and creatively. His accomplishments include scoring many of TV’s most popular shows such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Disney’s Duck Tales and two hit animated series for Fox, Family Guy and American Dad. His theme for Nickelodeon’s Fairly Odd Parents was the most played song on broadcast TV world-wide for three years.
What began in 2009 as an informal study of classic scores among Ron’s friends and peers turned into the Ravel Orchestration Study, and then the non-profit Academy of Scoring Arts. The ASA has since grown to encompass multiple studies, professional studies, and meet-ups to help professionals network with each other.
Over the past 25 years, Megatrax has established itself as the independent leader in the production industry music. Our success has come through this independent spirit…we were founded by composers and are still run by composers. Our independence allows us the flexibility to provide greater attention to music quality and unparalleled customer service. With 15 catalogs and over 100,000 tracks in all genres and styles, Megatrax has been featured in thousands of TV promos, trailers, movies and commercials all around the world. We are truly the Sound of Entertainment ®.
