Imagem Production Music, one of the most respected production music companies in the U.K., is embracing its heritage and rebranding to Cavendish Music.
The Cavendish name already has a long and storied history in the UK. When celebrated classical music publishers Boosey & Hawkes formed in 1930, it set the stage for this forerunner in the seminal production music industry. Cavendish Music was established as a separate production music company by B&H in 1967 and quickly established itself as a production music heavyweight.
Gareth Owen, General Manager of Cavendish Music, says, “Cavendish is a renowned brand that has always operated and moved ahead of the times, whilst remaining fiercely independent throughout. The Cavendish name signifies quality and service and we wanted to make a renewed commitment to our clients that we will continue to bring them the best in service and repertoire. It’s incredibly exciting to have a chance to evolve and grow Cavendish in new and innovative ways.”
The rebrand follows Cavendish Music’s acquisition by ole, the world’s fastest growing independent rights management company. This adds 240,000 tracks to ole’s existing production-music library, which now totals over 750,000 controlled tracks, and creates new cross-marketing opportunities with ole’s other production music library businesses. Cavendish immediately adds representation of this larger repertoire and will continue to operate as an independent entity under the ole umbrella, serving its existing client base and market.
Cavendish Music maintains a vast library of music crafted especially for TV, radio, and film. This includes orchestral music, trailer tracks, promo cues with multiple edit points, and music beds based on a range of genres from composers of award-winning film and television soundtracks. Their in-house team includes engineers who have worked with Madonna, U2, William Orbit, Trevor Horn, Cathy Dennis, and many more. The company also provides U.K. representation to production-music catalogs from around the world, including 5 Alarm, Sonoton, Sonic Quiver, Epic Score, Gothic Storm Music, and 1Revolution Music.
