Jeremy Yowell | Shepherd’s Glen

Posted November 15, 2013

Our client, Jeremy Yowell, recently released his new album Shepherd’s Glen – Celtic Stylings for Solo Piano. Unlike most recording artists, Yowell is also a composer and arranges music for SATB choir, piano, cello, and ensembles. With this skill set, he releases piano books to accompany his records. Black Ribbon is grateful to have printed the books for Shepherd’s Glen. The photo above is the amazing final product. Be sure to visit Jeremy’s website to get one of your own!

Invisible Cities Opera

Posted October 15, 2013


The Industry and LA Dance Project are bringing a new type of opera to Union Station. For this new experience, Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities was adapted and composed by Christopher Cerrone, directed by Yuval Sharon, and choreographed by Danielle Agami. Live singers and dancers will seemingly appear and disappear among pedestrians and everyday station activity. Each audience member will have Sennheiser wireless headphones and free reign of the venue to create their own story and reality within the performance. Black Ribbon had the honors of printing the music for this unique “invisible opera.” Check out the slideshow below to see our work in action during rehearsals. Watch the following video for more information and a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing production.

The Empire Strikes Abbey Road

Posted October 1, 2011

In preparation for Microsoft Kinect’s Star Wars, Black Ribbon teamed up with composers Gordy Haab and Kyle Newmaster to record the score at Abbey Road Studios. Black Ribbon’s CEO, Matt Franko, was the Head of Music Preparation and Music Librarian for these sessions. 200 pounds of printed music travelled with him across the pond in September of 2011.
The goal was to reflect the original Star Wars soundtracks as much as possible. Engineers transformed the studio to the original configuration in preparation for the London Symphony Orchestra. This was the same orchestra that performed the original soundtrack – including some of the same musicians. Check out the photos, videos, and links for an inside look at the session.
