A&E Television Networks announced a creative collaboration with Extreme Music, the worldwide production music unit of Sony/ATV Music Publishing resulting in Scoreganics Production Music, a new production music library. The announcement was made by Russell Emanuel and Dolph Taylor, co-CEOs of Extreme Music, and Doug Jacobs, SVP and General Counsel of AETN.
Scoreganics is a library of genre-focused television underscores inspired by AETN’s programming. Combining the strengths of the two companies, the catalogue will have production music super-brand Extreme creating, branding, marketing and distributing the library internationally. The initial release of albums, Felony, Misdemeanor, Espionage, Curiosity, Courage, Hope and Joy, are available immediately with further releases planned throughout the year.
The organic underscores in AETN’s original programming on A&E, HISTORY, Lifetime, BIO and HITM have inspired the creation of Scoreganics. Doug Jacobs credited Jennifer Insogna, of AETN’s Music Services Group, as the driving force behind the digital library initiative with Extreme.
Extreme’s Taylor said: “Sometimes less is more…it can be all too easy to allow music to distract the viewer from great visuals. There is a massive gap in the market for a visually sensitive soundtrack library specially constructed to be acoustically sympathetic. Scoreganics is now set to fill that gap.”
