Multibeat Music - Music Composition Services
Multibeat Music provides custom-composed music for film, video and television with a historical focus on corporate/industrial video.
HTML5 audio is in the plan for this website - in the meantime, here is a Flash player featuring a number of my compositions, with a heavy emphasis on music for corporate/industrial video.
I have a tremendous compositional range in musical genre, format, presentation, mood and I can work with all sorts of different session musicians given such a budget.
As a sound designer for film, I can allow music soundtrack and sound effects track to work on a simultaneous story-telling vector, with nuances and phrases weaving between these areas. Composers have become more connected to sound design, yet sound editors are warned to stay clear of tonal and emotional areas - with Multibeat, it can work as one totality with a clear, easy prep for the mixing stage, wherever that may be.
The heart and soul of Multibeat Music is composer, sound editor and musician, Karl J. Mohr (BMus).
A Curriculum Vitae outlines my accomplishments.
My composition, arrangement, production and sound design talents allow me to work on all types of music projects, from film soundtracks to music mastering to producing rock and folk records to voice recording to web sound. When I can't play or sing or arrange or create it myself, I draws on a large pool of talent on a per-need basis.

Multibeat Music - Album Production
Multibeat studio is modest and I do not typically advertise as a music recording studio. These days, many musicians are stumbling on recording acoustic drums, and also final vocals - these first, and last, stages take great care, a studio with a good acoustic, and pro studio gear. I do have an 8-channel mobile recording rig that I can take out-of-house to record drum bed tracks, guerilla-style, or for recording specialty items such as choirs, band instruments, or intimate acoustic spaces such as churches. As for doing final vocals for an album, vocal production/recording/sessions is something I like to participate in and can be done at the Multibeat studio.
I tend to downplay my music production offerings for working with artists on an album project - I'm too fastidious and most musicians I'm interested in working with don't have the available $3-5k to make it a worthwhile month-long fastidiousness adventure. Unfortunately I can no longer do a $2k album, nor $100 demo song recording.
However, working backwards, when it comes to mastering-to-final, mixing-to-premaster, cleaning up recorded tracks, replacing drums, pre-mixing to stems, vocal recording and general clean-up: Multibeat is an excellent source for any of these. Let's hear what you're doing and we can arrive at an arrangement.
Karl Mohr has produced all different types of music from folk to hip hop to indie rock to classical to electroclash to punk. With a classical background and a long-term dedication to street genres, anything is possible. You have the budget for a studio and want to bring Karl Mohr in? Let's do it.
