NEW STUDIO A work in Progress

Happy to announce my NEW studio! Upgrading, growing with a larger new space for 2019.  Still in the early, but every day brings progress.  We painted the walls (HIGH ceilings), installed new flooring, replaced doors with soundproof ones, and are currently in the process of building and installing acoustic treatments for better sound, and in some cases, soundproofing areas.   Hoping to move in by mid December with full music making for January.  Stay tuned!    

March 2017 Recording Session

Hartman scoring Session 0317

STRING SESSION, MARCH 2017 I recently had the opportunity to record here at my studio for a number of upcoming projects.  While I can’t go into detail (yet) on the projects, I thought it would be fun to show you some pictures of our space here in Los Angeles, and a bit of the process. I was recording live strings for two projects.   Here’s a view of the scoring stage from our control booth just prior to recording: My contractor, Nicole Garcia, brought in some amazing players. We started on the first musical cues with a string quintet comprised of 2 Violins, 2 Violas and a Cellist:   Adam Schmidt engineered and mixed the sessions.  One of the most talented people I know and a guy whom I trust will always make my music sound great!  Adam worked for years over at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions and has the experience in making musical cues sound beautiful and epic   Here is a brief sample clip of some of the music I recorded:    

Pilot Season Prep

I’ve been deep in prep for pilot season 2016! Working on a number of projects, which will be discussed in depth in the near future. Right now I’ve been composing concept pieces for two television pilots this spring, working with the show creators and producers to start defining possible sonic identities for these shows.  A lot of fun collaborating with writers to find the sound that helps tell their story. Currently working on some World War Two material, as well as some adventure oriented music.  More to come soon….  

Music Reels update

Studio1

Welcome again to JonathanHartman.net, the newly re-launched website for Jonathan Hartman, composer for Film & Television.  In addition to the projects window, which includes many of the projects Jonathan has worked on, there is a new Music Reel page being created, with streaming audio from his Soundcloud playlists page included here for your convenience.   As always, this material represents a small fraction of the music at his studio, much of which is project sensitive, or covered by the film’s copyright for sharing online.   For Producers and Directors, that material can be provided privately.  just contact us!

Website Reboot!

October 21, 2015 This is the beginning of my new website.  For those who have followed, this is the 3rd version of JonathanHartman.net.  The decision was driven by a need for a more robust blog feature, as well as the ability to showcase projects in a more cohesive way, with video and soundtrack playlists incorporated together with project information.  Something the former site lacked, and was awkward at handling.   I have a lot of incredible projects coming up, and thought it best to update the site before we were too deep into composing nonstop!  Plenty of updates to come throughout the fall.  2016 looks very promising, with 3 pilots, a possible series, and 3 feature films already on the calendar. So bear with us as we update the site and get it fully functional!
