Premier Business audio help their clients to stand-out from their competitors, by maximising each point of contact by considering  sensory contacts that are often overlooked.  One of these being audio.

PBA wanted to be able to give visitors to their website the ability to ‘play’ with sound, mixing various music and voice over tracks to see how this service could help their marketing efforts.  Applause provided an interactive audio mixer, programmed in Flash actionscript 3, which enabled viewers to select modules such as ‘Christmas Messages’, Business to Business, ‘On-Hold Messaging’ then pick from a selection of tracks and then mix them to create differing effects.  The finished Flash .swf file was emailed to PBA who themselves programmed it into their Content Managed web site.

Established Bristol legal firm Burges Salmon called us to help with one of their Corporate Finance Network events early in October – The Cleantech Question Time.

In the context of rising fuel costs and an increasing worldwide drive for greener solutions, Cleantech is seen by many as a growth sector where investors have a real opportunity for returns. During the event presentations were to be given by Chris Matthews, Senior Business Development Manager, Renewable Energy Team at the Co-op Bank and comment from our expert panel: James Thomas of ICON Corporate Finance, Andrew Page of Foresight Group, Mark Crosier, CEO of DeepStream Technologies, Phil Nicholas, CEO of Inetec and Peter Horsburgh of the Environmental Technologies Fund.

A panel discussion followed on a wide range of issues raised during the event including: what is meant by ‘cleantech’, the debate over the energy gap, the impact of the credit crunch for cleantech companies seeking funding and their expectations for 2009 and beyond.

Burges Salmon wanted to extend the value seminar by providing podcasts of  the presentation and discussions which could then be listened to online or downloaded on to ipod and mp3 players.

Applause recorded the presentations, audience questions and panel responses.  The resulting audio files were cleaned and edited the following day and encoded to windows media player and ipod compatible files and delivered via a web hosted facility. Burges Salmon’s IT people then linked to the files on BS website.

If you live in and around Bristol and have an interest in music take a look at St. Pat’s Music Group site.  They raise money to help local children further their musical talents by arranging musical events four or five times a year.  This has been running for a couple of years now and some of the highlights that come to mind are the Canadian Orpheus Male Voice Choir, the Exultate Singers,  The York Waites, guitarist John Byrne and more recently in October Shebeen an Irish folk band.

You can also get involved by becoming a friend of the Music Group or sponsoring an event.  Applause sponsored a performance by clarinettist Luca Luciano in February of this year.

The Group’s next event is the UWE Showstoppers.  As its name suggests, this group sings its way through some of the all-time great show-stopping songs from Broadway and the West End , including Chicago, Guys and Dolls, Miss Saigon, Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables as well as exciting new shows such as Rent, Wicked, Tick Tick Boom and Taboo – www.uwe.ac.uk/cpa/singing
