NEW YORK - Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design ( composer Neil Goldberg recently donated his scoring talents, creating a :60 orchestral piece for use in the second round of spots aimed at bringing the 2012 Olympic Games to New York City.

Produced by DDB New York, "Dream" begins with a live, heartfelt violin melody paired with black & white images of immigrants embarking on their American dreams in New York. As the music crescendos with live trumpets and flugelhorn, the images shift to color shots representing New York?s dream of hosting the Olympic Games at locations in Manhattan and the other boroughs.

"I'm proud to be associated with NYC 2012, and truly enjoyed collaborating with everyone from DDB," says composer Neil Goldberg. "We're a fairly new company, so we're happy to do anything we can to support New York's production community and the city as a whole. Orchestral music can be very moving and inspiring, and I enjoyed using it to get behind this cause."

DDB creatives Mark Teringo and Barbara Eibel say they were looking for an emotional piece to underscore the spot's imagery, which was cut together by Chris Bonanni of Cool Dry Place.

Rhinofx handled visual effects for the project. Glenn Navia of HSR provided the mix. Chris Peterson produced for Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design. The spot features stock footage from Getty Images, Steeplechase Films, John E. Allen Archive and Art Resource.
