MartinLogan Celebrates 'Truth in Sound' with New Series of Short Films

full?d=1573747458.png

(November 12, 2019) MartinLogan, one of the industry’s most elite manufacturers of electrostat speakers, has released a collection of short films called Artists in Motion. While the films feature artists that may not ring with familiarity, they’re all associated with well-known bands, artists, and projects such as Eric Clapton, Earth, Wind & Fire, The War on Drugs, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and more. Additionally, MartinLogan says they all share commonalities as they skate along the cutting edge of creation, continually re-imagining, inventing, and exploring their craft.

“This film series highlights artists stepping out from behind the scenes to tell their stories, describe their creative process, and show us the reality of creation,” explains Justin Bright, Director of Marketing and Digital Technology. “These professionally produced films don’t overtly endorse the MartinLogan brand. They reinforce the essential elements of the MartinLogan mission by illuminating the creative process. The effect is compelling and authentic.”

Each of the four videos is short, with run times ranging from four to seven minutes, but deliver exceptional production quality.

Meet the featured artists, as detailed by MartinLogan:
  • Sonny Emory, in “Sideman Magic.” Sonny Emory is a world-famous drummer and percussionist who has worked with artists as varied as Eric Clapton and Earth, Wind & Fire. Sonny discusses the stresses and rewards of putting together a band and finding his Truth in Sound on a new stage.
  • David Hartley, in “The Offseason.” David Hartley is the bassist and multi-instrumentalist for the Grammy-winning rock group The War on Drugs. He reveals his creative process during time off from a grueling tour and discovers that there is no downtime in the quest for Truth in Sound.
  • Sam Sims, in “Bring Back the Funk.” Sam Sims is a bassist and producer who has worked with industry giants like Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Boney James, Bette Midler, and many more. We catch him in his home studio, working to create his Truth in Sound for a new solo record and tour.
  • Tim Meeks, in “A New Way Down the Mountain.” Tim Meeks is an audio engineer who has invented a new instrument, the Harpejji. It’s an alluring combination of piano and guitar used by world-famous artists such as Stevie Wonder. We talk to Tim about the art of creation, making new tools on the frontier of musical innovation that reveal Truth in Sound in new ways.
“MartinLogan is devoted to creativity and innovation. It’s our privilege to spend time with these passionate people,” says Bright. “Their intensity and enthusiasm sparks our excitement and fires our drive for innovation. The next creative breakthrough is inside us and all around us at the same time. ‘Artists in Motion’ is a tribute to the creative spark that inspires us to create Truth in Sound with every MartinLogan speakers.”
