WHO IS ENCAPSULATE MUSIC FOR?
Bands/Artists, Record Labels, Artist Management, Promoters, Television Networks, Web Publications, etc.
Encapsulate Music focuses on providing high-end video, audio and photography content for bands around the world, and especially in our hometown of Chicago. EM's book of work ranges widely from partnering with NBC to provide content for Last Call With Carson Daly, to filming promo material for Jagjaguwar's S. Carey, to recording audio keepsakes for local Chicagoland talent. We teamed up with the web publication Made of Chalk in 2012 to curate the live concert series Chalk TV. During this time we had the opportunity to work with over 50 bands from around the globe, resulting in over half a million channel views to date.
WHAT DOES ENCAPSULATE MUSIC DO?
These services can be mix, matched and customized to best fit your needs. While we love to see a project through from start to finish in all three media areas, we are available to provide solely video, audio or photography coverage without the need to bundle all three. This means we can provide just video coverage for an event if audio is already accounted for, or create a multi-cam edit of footage that's already been captured. Audio work can be as simple as recording a stereo feed from the board to recording multi-track on-site and mixing and mastering the content in post. Lastly, we welcome all new, creative concepts that can leverage our media expertise, so don't hesitate to present an idea that doesn't fit the mold.
WHY ENCAPSULATE MUSIC?
"We hired Encapsulate Music to commemorate our biggest headlining show and record release. With everything leading up to the event, I felt a bit overwhelmed. Thankfully, Nick and his crew were entirely independent and professional - they arrived early and got in despite me forgetting to turn in the guest list. They knew exactly what to do and who to talk to in setting up audio and video. They got great shots and I didn't even notice them filming. I was most impressed with how they took ownership of the project and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The end result was that we were able to focus on putting on our best show, and then a few days later Nick presented us with this incredible video of the night. Some of our fans even mentioned the video looked better than the show did in person!"
