BMG Production Music Acquires Immediate Music

BMG Production Music (BMGPM) has announced the acquisition of Immediate Music, one of the leading U.S. independent production music teams in motion picture advertising and trailers; and sister company 1 Revolution Music, the premier television music catalog.

The announcement comes just two weeks after BMGPM’s acquisition of leading French independent production music company AXS Music, based in Paris.

Co-founded in 1993 by Emmy Award-winning composers and producers Yoav Goren and Jeffrey Fayman, Immediate Music is widely acknowledged as Hollywood's preeminent producer of original music for motion picture advertising, trailers, commercials and television programs. Having created and licensed music for over 4,000 film campaigns to date, Immediate’s unique cinematic style helped pioneer and define the “epic music” genre so prevalently heard in modern film trailers today.

“Having been long-time independent composers and producers, our dream has always been to better direct and expose our cinematic music to a worldwide audience and BMG Production Music is highly focused with an expansive global reach. As part of the creative team, the future has never been brighter and we intend to shake up the industry.” said  Fayman.

From jazz vocal arrangements to edgy and industrial sound design to full symphonic and hybrid orchestral scores, the production music house creates some of the highest quality music utilizing elaborate recording sessions produced in world-class studios such as the famed Abbey Road Studios in London.

Some of Immediate Music’s recent high-profile trailer campaign credits include Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, War For The Planet Of The Apes, Beauty And The Beast, Arrival and Star Wars: Rogue One; alongside memorable advertising campaigns for blockbuster movie franchises include Harry Potter, X-Men, Spiderman, The Da Vinci Code, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Hunger Games, Batman, Twilight, Transformers, Lord of the Rings and Narnia.

Immediate’s commercial music has been used in international advertising campaigns for Chrysler, Nike, Coca-Cola, Verizon, McDonalds, Axe, Toyota, Ford and Hitachi.

In the world of television, Immediate’s TV series and program music has been recently featured in highly acclaimed shows such as Stranger Things, The Leftovers, The Man In The High Castle and Narcos.

Geert-Willem Koolhof, BMG Production Music worldwide Managing Director, said, “Production music is one of the fastest growing segments in the industry and BMGPM continues to strengthen and develop the most competitive team in the marketplace. I’m pleased to welcome Jeff, Yo, and the Immediate team to BMG.”
