Mark Ronson – Late Night Feelings

June 12 2019

Late Night Prelude

“Just for my own sanity, when I start off a record, it has to be a little bit of a statement—something that’s a little grand and foreshadows the rest of the record. David Campbell, the string arranger, came up with this beautiful, slightly Barry White Love Unlimited Orchestra-inspired arrangement—a little slowed down and psychedelic…” – Mark Ronson

“David Campbell has been working specifically to get the orchestra to play like powerful rock musicians. He’s working the sections to get the horns or the strings to function like an electric guitar would – bolder notes, longer, bigger gestures.” – Brian Kehew

April 18, 2019

“… Social Cues took musical cues from ‘80s horror films scored by John Carpenter, and also benefited from a collaboration with Beck’s father, composer David Campbell… ‘What I’m Becoming’ shows off another fine use of strings that has Campbell’s name written all over it, building a cinematic dreamscape for Shultz’ apologetic lyrics.”

Hanson – String Theory

November 9, 2018

“There were so many questions that we really needed to have a partner that was at his level — that had his level of experience,” Taylor tells PEOPLE of Campbell. “And there are really very few people that can even say they match him. His career arc has been made up largely of collaborations between contemporary music and symphonies, so he’s the perfect translator, so to speak, between our world and the symphony world.”
