Ally Crow

As the crow flies

We just rolled out a new portfolio-style site for Philadelphia-based artist Ally Crow. In a world that moves as quick as ours these days, it’s inspiring and impressive to see someone focusing on process and craft as opposed to instant gratification. Give the site a look and if you’re ever in Philly, make sure to stop by the Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. and ask Ally for a drink recommendation. Cheers.

Atypical composer

There’s a sort of sameness and monotony to how aspiring musicians and composers present themselves online. And many such sites eventually become drab unmaintained wastelands containing all the relevant information that one would seek—though I’m often astounded how many composer sites may not even have audio samples—and presented in such a boring and uninviting way that it doesn’t inspire the user to explore beyond the page they’ve found themselves on, insuring that the remainder of the composer’s oeuvre stays dusty and hidden. So when Baltimore-based composer Ruby Fulton got in touch about a website redesign, we wanted to make sure we avoided those pitfalls.

Ruby has a very unique compositional voice and it was important to us that her site stood out from the standard composer web fare. Her pieces tend to be extremely topical so we decided that a portfolio-style setup would help create a visual interest in her already sonically interesting work. We’re very happy with the outcome and especially like the fun of sorting through pieces by instrumentation grouping on the main portfolio page. Check it out and give it a spin (and listen)!
