Hummingbird completes work with Saint Thomas Health

Nashville-based music and sound design advertising company Hummingbird Productions announced today it has completed work with clients Saint Thomas Health, the Government of Uganda and Alabama Power. 

Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed in a release.

Saint Thomas Health used Hummingbird for an original orchestral score to accompany its “Nothing Shall Be Impossible” television and online video promotional campaign, which debuts today. Bob Farnsworth, Hummingbird CEO, founder and creative director, wrote the piece working through the Bohan Advertising agency and Creative Director Rich Paschall.

The “Nothing Shall Be Impossible” score was recorded at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studios, with Penny Rahe (producer), Don Hart (arranger) and Bobby Shin (engineer) lending expertise.

“No matter how closely we think today’s synthetic sounds can replicate real instruments, it always blows us away when we are allowed the opportunity to compose original music for presentations employing an entire orchestra,” Farnsworth (pictured) said in the release. “A human musical performance always allows much more subtlety, nuance and flavor to be expressed.”

In addition, the Government of Uganda has selected Hummingbird Productions to write and record a new rendition of the African country’s national anthem. The score will be presented during a special event in Uganda in conjunction with its 52nd Anniversary in September.

Farnsworth and Hummingbird officials recently traveling to Uganda to record 1,000 voices of Ugandan citizens, including children, living in various villages throughout the country. The work was finished at Ocean Way Studios.

For “Lights,” a campaign completed through client Lawler Ballard Van Durand Advertising of Birmingham (which promotes Alabama Power), Hummingbird recorded orchestra music at Ocean Way Studios. The music from that session is featured within 15- and 30- second spots that are now being played across Alabama.

Hummingbird most recent high-profile work was the Coca-Cola Marlen Esparza television commercial that aired during the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
