New footage of multi-platinum producer Pharrell on location at the UM Gusman Concert Hall at The University of Miami Frost School of Music working on the new ‘I Am Other’ theme with the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra. I can’t wait to see what becomes of this experiment. Pharrell is a mastermind.
Williams composed the mixed-genre orchestral work—which features soft and ethereal atmospheres contrasted with fortissimo brass themes and driving rhythms—to explore a different side of his musical creativity, and to encourage his hip-hop fan base to expand their musical horizons. Shelly Berg orchestrated and conducted the work, and Director of Recording Services Paul Griffith (B.M. ’83) was the recording engineer.
