Make no bones about KPM's X-Ray Dog

UK production and post-production facilities will for the first time have access to music written by X-Ray Dog, thanks to a partnership with music distributors KPM Music.
This highly successful team of LA based composers who write music trailers and promos for the major Hollywood film studios.
Speaking about the new partnership, KPM's Director, Peter Cox, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to represent the music of these exciting American composers who are amongst the most sought-after talent in Hollywood. It's wonderful to be able to offer UK editors access to their music for the first time."
Promo credits include blockbusters such as 'Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers' and 'Gangs of New York'.
KPM Music are exclusive distributors of X-Ray Dog CDs with an introductory box set available in the week beginning February 10.
Other recent credits include; the soon to be released 'Incredible Hulk' (Summer 2003), 'The Hours', 'Darkness Falls', 'Star Trek Nemesis', 'Road to Perdition', 'Spiderman' and 'Minority Report'.

Specifically produced for use in films, television, radio and new media, production music has until now been provided on disc to advertising agencies, broadcasters and audio facilities throughout the country. However, producers can now pre-audition tracks and keep within budgeted costs as the music is licensed on the basis on a published set of rates.
KPM Music, founded in 1957 is one of the world's most successful music libraries, operating in over 36 different countries. Its catalogue provides a worldwide production library music resource with over 500 CD's currently available and an online service with over 2000 registered users.
All tracks in the KPM library are either original compositions or arrangements of traditional or classical works. For copyright reasons commercially available tracks and recordings by well-known bands and singers are not included in the KPM catalogue.
By commissioning leading composers and musicians and applying consistently high production values, KPM's acclaimed recordings are the standard source of music for the professional producer.
