Advert: Huawei Ascend P7 – Excellence With Edge
Music: Tom Player / Owain Llwyd – Excellence With Edge
Why not push the boundaries, asks this TV ad for Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, promoting their Ascend P7 smartphone handset. The ad features a pianist playing a very tricky piece that was specially composed for the ad by Tom Player. The pianist in the ad is a Czech actor called Jan Ctvrtnik, but the pianist on the recording is actually Welsh musician Owain Llwyd. (And the hands you see in the ad are Owain’s.) Tom Player is a familiar name here at TV Ad Music, having composed music for several popular ads, including recent ones from TK Maxx and the Sunday Times. This track, called Excellence With Edge, is available to download from Tom’s Lost Track Productions Bandcamp page.
