Biography

Corner Stone Cues is a music label established in 2006 to elevate the trailer music model. Composers and recording artists for CSC amplify the emotion in music and consider how it applies to a visual application like trailers, films, TV promos, video games, and sports.

“Requiem For A Tower” was the debut release for CSC highlighting the popular title track that was first heard in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings the Two Towers trailer. “Requiem” has become one of the most popular trailer cues in history with an even bigger life in sports licensing. British broadcasting giant Sky TV employs “Requiem” as the theme for Barclays English Premiere League Football. Other licenses have included Wimbledon, 2006 Olympics, 2007 Super Bowl, 2007 NASCAR Championship, Rosebowl, and NBA Playoffs.

CSC released 5 more offerings in quick succession. Air Lyndhurst, El Morro, Holliston Stops, LISSA, and Eton Path. The two artist releases Holliston Stops and LISSA used trailer music dynamics and inspired lyrics to garner licensing in such US TV shows as Dirt, Gossip Girl, and Cashmere Mafia.

Air Lyndhurst, El Morro, and Eton Path are more traditional orchestral and orchestral hybrid interpretations of film trailer music. The most recent release Eton Path boasts a cast that includes the London Studio Orchestra, Purcell Singers, Azam Ali, Dierdre Dubois, Riffat Sultana, Brain, Buckethead, and Damian Marley. CSC applied the “Requiem” model to Led Zeppelin classics “Ten Years Gone” and “Kashmir” to create two movements titled “Ten Years Kashmir” Mvt I & II.
