Works from award-winning composers Frederik Wiedmann and Joel Goodman available for immediate licensing.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.— Killer Tracks, a premiere source for pre-cleared production music, today announces its new label ICON, featuring music for movie trailers, television promos, advertising, sports, games and other media.

The initial release includes 16 albums created and produced by award-winning composers Frederik Wiedmann and Joel Goodman, founders of independent music producer ICON Trailer Music. The collection runs the gamut from rich, melodic orchestral scores—many recorded with live orchestras—to cutting edge electronica. Also included are a large selection of alternate mixes, bonus elements and trailer toolkits. All 16 albums are available immediately for licensing in the U.S. and internationally.

"We are thrilled to represent ICON in the production music market," said Killer Tracks Director of Marketing Andrew Donahue. "Frederik and Joel are gifted, versatile composers who write music brimming with emotion and energy. Their tracks are extremely functional, and expertly crafted to work well with picture." ICON is expected to produce approximately five new albums for the collection each year.

Partnering with Killer Tracks provides ICON with access to the world market and an association with a respected, established brand. "Killer Tracks is known for quality and has been producing music at a high level for a long time," Goodman said. "It also has tremendous market share in the U.S. and abroad. We look forward to enjoying great exposure."

Founded by Wiedmann and Goodman in 2011, ICON initially focused on orchestral trailer music, but has recently been expanding beyond that niche, creatively and conceptually. "We spend a lot of time researching trends and market demands," explained Wiedmann. "We anticipate where the market is headed and are working with edgier and more contemporary styles."

ICON has also developed a reputation for high production value. Whenever possible, it records with live orchestras, choirs and musicians. It also produces music with editorial in mind, creating tracks with numerous edit points, creating alternate mixes, and providing stems and musical toolkits. "We deliver lots of components that are useful to picture editors," Goodman notes.

Wiedmann and Goodman bring broad experience in scoring for film, television, documentaries, commercials and animation. Wiedmann won an Emmy Award for the animated series All Hail King Julien. His credits also include the series Miles from Tomorrowland (Disney) and Green Lantern: The Animated Series (Cartoon Network), as well as the films Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox (Warner Bros. Animation), Hostel: Part III (Sony), Mirrors II (20th Century Fox) and Hellraiser: Revelations (Weinstein Company, Dimension Films). Goodman has more than 140 film and television credits, including the acclaimed PBS documentary series American Experience for which he wrote the main theme. He has also scored more than 30 films for HBO, notably Saving Pelican #895, for which he won an Emmy Award.

Killer Tracks will be exhibiting at NAB Show, April 22-27 in Las Vegas, Booth SL-7616.
