AdSound creates the audio identity of the French Rugby Federation. True anthem of the French national teams, it translates the values and spirit of modern rugby.
First, an electro-rock-orchestral inspiration shapes the arena of a contemporary peplum blending strong emotions in a balanced musical universe. Then, an epic and powerful narration symbolises the fight, courage and commitment to the game. It distils suspense, tension but always with a spirit of harmony.
The voices keep human being at the heart of the action. They bring that serenity in the fight symbolising self-control and respect. Last but not least, the composition opens on a major mode giving a positive energy, a unifying force that sounds like an invitation to celebrate.
Offical launch in February for the Six nations tournament. Thousands of thanks to our friends and partners Nicolas Schpoliansky & Stéphane Desprez (Huddle Makers) !
