Elephant Music is 360 music composition company and consultancy with an extensive range of over 20 composers, ranging from orchestral to minimal electronica. In the past year alone they have composed music for brands including Axe, Samsung, Head & Shoulders and Asics and Hollywood film trailers, most recently being, ‘A Place Beyond the Pines’ and ‘The Railway Man’.
Elephant Music also contains a catalogue of hand picked ‘buzz bands’ from around the world and picked up Django Django & Crystal Fighters early in their careers. Their A&R team scout artists from emerging underground scenes in London, Toronto, Berlin and LA – and are expecting big things from hotly-tipped Liverpudlian quartet ‘Bird’.
Elephant Music was founded by Vikram Gudi in 2011. Vikram has a deep knowledge of classical music publishing having worked for Boosey & Hawkes. There, he worked the catalogues of Steve Reich, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff, Copland and Charles Mingus. Vikram was also sync manager at Imagem, working with the catalogues of MIA, Vampire Weekend, Phil Collins and Daft Punk. He placed music on Sky, Nike, Adidas, Samsung, Honda, Alfa Romeo, De Beers, Shell and many more.
Starting off in LA, Elephant Music has recently relocated to London with a new team and office in Hoxton. They currently have a global network of reps and supervisors as well as in-house deals with leading TV networks and agencies. With plans to expand to New York and LA, launch a bespoke record label, TV channel and music conference in India, Vikram Gudi is worth keeping on your radar.
