Some people write music, I write songs.

Whether it's for TV, video games, film or a 30 second commercial...the song elements of melody, hook and structure are present. Even in Sound Design we crave a richness of texture that's musical. Why? Because that's how our minds process sound.We're raised that way from our childhood ABC's, to our teenage ringtones, to our dinner party playlists.Songs touch our emotions below the surface and resonate in our memories.And truly, isn't that the connection we're trying to make with all of our creative content...

So here’s how a New York ad man once described me:

“The versatility displayed in Darby Orr’s thematic compositions for cinema, television and the commercial worlds is an extraordinary testament to how uniquely he hears film and video. From Fox’s "Drive" to dramatic trailers for Buena Vista Pictures, his soundtracks for Time Warner and DirecTV to his theme song and Beatles remix for Mercedes-Benz’s international launch, Darby takes the moving image to the next level. He’s also been responsible for music production and sound design on more than a dozen independent film, video and spot projects.”

Currently, I'm finishing the score for a spoken word project after having completed over 30 tracks of music and a boatload of SFX for Nimbus Games. I'm really enjoying the online game experience-it's a challenging gig for sure!

One more thing...I'm completely over the moon about the rerelease of two amazing children's CDs I had the good fortune to participate on as a writer, engineer and mixer: "A Child's Garden of Songs" and "The Days Gone By". Timeless and beautiful-check them out on my songs with vox section.

I’m not one to live in the past but this is some of what I did in the moments leading up to the here and now:Signed Artist-CBS.Staff Writer/Producer-Sony Music Publishing.7.1 soundscapes-Universal Studios Hollywood.Lead Interactive Sound Designer-Copia Center.Music-Coors Light, Ford, Mercedes Benz, Chuck E. Cheese, Downy, 3dFX, The Sopranos, The OC, ABC Radio.

So i'm here to create...music, a couple of beautiful kids, a deeply satisfying relationship, a little happiness for myself and for others.

And if it has a good beat, all the better...
