Name: Leanne Flask, CCO Orchid Music Design (Austin, TX)
Programs: Hotel Saint Cecilia, Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, El Monumento, and many more
Q: How do you find music for your programs?
It may be easier to answer where I do NOT find music for programs which would be while sleeping (although that does occur sometimes). Music is all around. However, some of our regular go-to resources include: Shazam (while I’m out and about), The Hype Machine, Twitter, Band Of The Day, new release lists, and Drowned in Sound to name a few.
Q: What’s your all-time favorite track that you think works in just about every retail program?
I don’t have one song that is a one size fits all.
Q: When you’re not programming music for stores, what are your interests and hobbies?
I own two music companies so I love being quietly in nature – it’s a must have for my peace of mind. Quantum mechanics and quantum physics, languages and anything and everything tech – I’m a techno-junkie.
