Stephen Arnold Music Helps In Relaunch Of Court TV
The recent relaunch of Court TV included a new sonic brand and music package created by Stephen Arnold Music for the network devoted to live, gavel-to-gavel coverage, legal reporting and expert analysis of the nation’s most important and compelling trials.
The Texas-based company used all live orchestration to create a range of original compositions representing the pacing, tone and emotion of the network’s programming. Trumpets, trombones, French horns, violins, violas and celli contributed to the vibrancy and boldness of the music themes composed for Court TV programming including Court TV Live, breaking news, special trial coverage and the primetime Closing Arguments with Vinnie Politan.
“Court TV is a 24-hour network with extensive live programming, so the custom music package built around a unique sonic brand plays a critical role in the presentation to our audience throughout each broadcast day,” said Bryan Slonaker, SVP/creative, Katz Networks/Court TV.
“Creating a sonic brand for the relaunch of Court TV, a trailblazing network with a deep history, was indeed very special,” said Chad Cook, Stephen Arnold Music VP/creative. “Our team especially enjoyed the unique assignment of composing a music package that captures a sense of crime and justice.”
