‘BBC Oneness’ Christmas Ident 2016

Charlotte had another amazing opportunity to be involved in a recording session, this time at AIR Studios in the hall.

The BBC’s very own BBC Concert Orchestra were brought in to record Guy Farley’s arrangement of John Lennon’s, “Happy Christmas (War is Over)” for a new BBC ident that is to air over the 2016 Christmas period, titled as “BBC Oneness”.

Charlotte oversaw the distribution of parts for all the players as well as following the recording session with the original Logic file, taking note of any ‘on the floor’ changes that needed to be made.

The second half of the day was spent in the control room, again working with the renowned Geoff Foster, who mixed and engineered the session.

Here is a brief clip of one of the takes of the piece, this particular take being in G major:
