Music

Tower Studios has a brilliant music composer on its staff who takes care of all the sounds and effects required for our productions.

Sam takes care of sounds and effects required for all kinds of productions and will, depending on respective requirements, compose original music for your radio jingle or TV advert, soundtrack for your movie or your TV series.

Sam also specializes in orchestral work where he scores an orchestra arrangement for any given song or piece of music. Using state of the art sound libraries, he can achieve the highest level of realism without having the artist go through the vast expense of hiring a live orchestra or big band.

To enhance music production value, Sam collaborates with Manolito Galea at Lito’s Place, a studio with an international reputation of being one of the best recording studios in Malta.

“I believe that music touches people’s soul, gives a deeper meaning to our lives and communicates to us what we would never accomplish to communicate with words. Every piece of music I compose is inspired by very deep emotions and comes from the soul – the craft is only there to help me put those feelings into music.” ~ Sam Hayman

Here are a few samples of his work…

Perplex City

Perplex City is a song which originally came in as a rough vocal track along with the instruction of, “Make it sound like James Bond.” For inspiration, Sam drew from a vast reservoir of artists from past decades like Shirley Bassey. Mixing with that a bit of research into the “James Bond sound” and the result is this:

Falling for my Soul

Falling for my Soul came to the studio as a demo with voice and a backing track on a single chord – Bb minor throughout. Leaving the melody untouched, Sam broke it into more elaborate harmony and a richer chord progression. The result is a jazz-funk song with a very cool full brass solo:
