LOS ANGELES, California – October 27, 2020 – Composer, Hanan Townshend delivers music behind Apple’s new iPhone 12 Pro.
With the release of the new iPhone, the release of Volvo’s latest luxury edition, and Google’s Pixel, Townshend establishes himself as the newest leader in the commercial music realm.
This week’s announcement of Apple’s latest and greatest phone marks a milestone for the Seattle based composer who has captured the ears of the most famous brands across the globe including American Express, Volvo, Google, and Apple among others.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of one of the greatest technological innovations in history,” says the young composer known for scoring several films for the enigmatic director, Terrence Malick. “It’s an incredible opportunity and an honor to share the excitement of the groundbreaking iPhone 12 Pro with the world, adds the music maker.
Creating the sound for the launch of Apple’s most cutting-edge devise is no easy feat, especially when the world is watching.
“This project didn’t intimidate me as much as it excited me,” says the musician candidly. “My mission was to create a score sound that mirrored Emmanuel Lubezki’s visual creation, while capturing the sophistication, creativity, and groundbreaking technology of the new iPhone.”
Recently Townshend showcased the soundtrack for The Book of Vision, a Terrence Malick production and the directorial debut of Carlo Hintermann. The film premiered at this year’s Venice International Film Critics’ Week in Italy. His esoteric and spellbinding soundtracks are quickly making fans of industry executives and fans everywhere.
The New Zealand born musician’s film credits include The Tree of Life (2011), To the Wonder (2012), Knight of Cups (2015), and The Vessel (2016).
He is currently wrapping up the soundtrack for the upcoming feature, by director Julio Quintana, On the Line. The dramatic feature is based on the true story of Mexican orphanage Casa Hogar, which struggled to survive after Hurricane Odile hit in 2014.
The movie’s cast includes Fernanda Urrejola (Narcos: Mexico), Isaac Arellanes (AppleTV’s Ghostwriter), Nathan Arenas (Disney’s Bunk’d), Miguel Garcia, and Steve Gutierrez (Netflix’s Gentefied).
He’s also working on music for the launch of yet another commercial titan that will be released later this year.
