, the creative force behind countless, memorable compositions, has provided music for spots promoting Top Rank Boxing’s upcoming pay-per-view presentation of the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez bout this Saturday, Nov. 12 in Las Vegas. The track, “King of the Mountain,” is the latest of more than 65 that Stephen Arnold Music has provided for pay-per-view boxing and mixed martial arts events over the past six years.
“Our vision for Pacquiao/Marquez was a cinematic adventure piece, and ‘King of the Mountain’ was just that,” says Top Rank’s Creative Director Phil Smith. “With our promotional spots, we believe that sound is more important than anything else, even visual, from an emotional perspective. Stephen Arnold Music consistently provides us with tracks that evoke emotion”.
Pacquiao was named Fighter of the Decade by the Boxing Writers Association of America. His World Boxing Association welterweight title is at stake in the highly-anticipated bout. To underscore the ferocious boxing clips in their promotional spots, Top Rank asked for a music track that felt dramatic, emotional and orchestral.
“They wanted the :30 promo to sound theatrical, like the trailer for a movie,” explains Stephen Arnold Music’s Director of Business Development Michael Finnegan. “The direction they chose led to the creation of a pounding, high-impact track that emphasizes strings and percussion, and builds to a dramatic crescendo.
“King of The Mountain” will soon be available to license as an addition to The Vault by Stephen Arnold Music, their high-end artist production library.
“Top Rank Boxing turns to Stephen Arnold Music because we consistently deliver quality tracks that are tailored to their events and their target audience,” says Stephen Arnold, president of the award-winning music production company. “They come to us for the big events, and this is one of the biggest.”
The promo is currently being seen in 130 countries around the world, on networks like the BBC and SOLARtv, which is based in Pacquiao’s home country The Philippines. The spot also ran during all nationally televised NFL games this week, and on HBO and ESPN, among many other outlets.
