Feel For Music is a music consultancy service working across a number of music provision disciplines and based at the famous Metropolis Studios in London.

The small team of music experts and producers, consisting of Ben Sumner , Glenn Herweijer, Nick Hill, Konstantine Pope and Luciano Rossi, has a long history in working across the music industry. From PR to production, compilations to composition, Feel For Music has worked extensively with brands and broadcasters, and is now largely focused on the gaming sector. The long-term ADAM users now upgraded their studio with ADAM S2V nearfield monitors.

“The connection between music and brands has evolved into a complex landscape and we see ourselves sitting right in the middle of it working with game publishers, trailer agencies, and broadcasters.”

“The connection between music and brands has evolved into a complex landscape and we see ourselves sitting right in the middle of it working with game publishers, trailer agencies, and broadcasters”, says Ben Sumner. “Our goal is to create relationships that can work well for all and we have the connections to provide the perfect creative solution to the needs of our customers.”

Feel For Music is a team of music producers and supervisors who have been making music for many years across a wide range of genres. According to Ben Sumner, they came together a few years back with a collective goal of taking their experiences from commercial music into the media sector: “We are all massive music fans and love coming to work every day; we work on lots of cool projects involving awesome games and amazing music so it’s never hard to feel motivated!”

And indeed, there have been plenty of interesting projects and the ever-growing list of references is hard to match: Feel For Music has worked on the ‘Firestarter’ trailer for Just Cause 3 creating a huge amount of attention and tens of millions of views on YouTube. They also covered the TV ad campaign for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate but the project that has caused the biggest buzz is probably their recent work with Florence & The Machine for Final Fantasy XV and with Daughter for Life Is Strange: Before The Storm. Current work includes trailers for Assassins Creed Origins, Metro Exodus and Space Junkies VR and there is much more to come.

The company is based in one of Europe’s best facilities, the Metropolis Studios in West London, well known for the amazing recording and mastering studios.

“Also being in amongst so many great engineers and producers at Metropolis is really inspiring!”

“Our bit of the building is made up of an office and two modest studio spaces that are interconnected. These studios are shared by several of our in-house composition team. We are always aiming to improve our studio space, but it’s great working together as a team across two studios in a close-knit environment. Also being in amongst so many great engineers and producers at Metropolis is really inspiring”, reports Ben Sumner.

“The sound quality is consistently exceptional and all our music supervisors and composers trust the ADAMs implicitly.”

“We have used ADAM studio monitors for many years – A7, A7X, A77X and now the S2Vs. The sound quality is consistently exceptional and all our music supervisors and composers trust the ADAMs implicitly. Obviously you need the right monitor for your room, this is why the new adjustment features that come with the built-in DSP of the S2V are so appealing.“

“With all the trailers we do, we need a big sound and they provide precise reproduction that allows us to hear how our music is going to translate to the big and small screen. We are all looking for help on making our mixes sound just right and monitors that deliver the clarity and sound that enables mixes to translate well when listened to by the public.”
