Artist: Rob Simonsen
This sweet iPhone 5 commercial song shows a bunch of people in various activities taking pictures with their iPhone 5′s and presumably uploading them somewhere. Their tag is that more people take pictures with iPhones than any other camera. I have no clue where they did their research or got their numbers from, but until that proof is provided to me, I suppose I will accept it. As a recent iPhone owner I can certainly say that the quality of pictures you can take with an iPhone is far superior to my old Blackberry. Granted my overall feelings are that these are phones and not cameras, it certainly is convenient to be able to have this little guy in my pocket and be able to take good quality pictures.
Regardless of any of this, the gorgeous piano in the song is by one Mr. Rob Simonsen. This film composer currently lives in LA and learned to play piano early in life due to his musical family. He has provided musical arrangements on Surf’s Up, Moneyball, Life of Pi, (500) Days of Summer, Dollhouse, The Way,Way Back and The Spectacular Now. His work has appeared in a slew of other commercials as well. What I am saying, is this man is good and you should be buying his music.
While I am not able to find a download of this particular song, I will give you Pondicherry from Life of Pi, because it’s just great.
P.S. I hate Jellyfish.
