NYC's Bang Music was founded in 1990 by former agency writer/creative director Lyle Greenfield, who worked in the commercial music world with a roster of independent composers and musicians. Bang composer and partner Brian Jones provided the introduction to MOD through the music-for-series work.

Media On Demand has specialized in original music, supervision, editorial and sound design in the entertainment industry for over ten years. Its team has over 80 feature film and television credits, including Oceans 13, Collateral, Miracle, XXX, Holes, Elf, Grudge, Drive, The Riches and the Fox hit 24.

The two companies realized the value of their shared resources three years ago, while collaborating on music soundtracks for several TV series, most notably, the hit Scrubs. Talent diversity combined with round-the-clock recording capability on both coasts, and in Europe, made for an efficient, high-quality production system.

"A producer stuck in an all-night edit makes an urgent call for music alternatives - an hour later we've been able to temp the scene from our studios in Los Angeles and New York simultaneously," explains MOD founder Aaron Green. "It's fantastic - and it happened."

The new enterprise, which has recently been working on original music and audio post for several new TV series, including The Riches on FX, Shear Genius on Bravo, E! Channel's Sunset Tan and Fox's Drive, will operate jointly out of their studio facilities on both coasts, as well as in Europe. In California, Bang/MOD's studios are located in Santa Clarita, with an additional facility on the Sony Pictures lot in Culver City. In New York, offices and studios are located in Manhattan's Flatiron District.  In Europe, office and studio facilities in Stavanger, Norway are overseen by senior producer Haavard Hana and composer Espen Noreger.
