We were commissioned to produce the new top of hour and news sequences for the XFM network in 2006. Tense, dark and atmospheric, the beds are thematic whilst each one remains distinctive.
The demo audio comprises the news, travel and weather beds, together with the top of hour opener (talk-over donut) and 'new music upfront' bed.

noise fusion's long standing relationship with XFM continued in 2005 as we further pushed the audio imaging envelope. Building on the package we'd created the year before, we produced new custom music and imaging for the top of hour sequence, together with IDs and branding across the station's output incorporating new custom FX. Now used as out of break IDs, we also produced a new set of our trademark beat-matched music imagers.
This package forms part of XFM's nominated entry for the 2006 Sony Radio Academy Station Imaging Award.

This package was created out of a desire to add punch to XFM's sound whilst retaining the station's live, raw feel. This package also unleashed noise fusion's genre-blending beat-matched music imagers onto XFM.

An unashamedly different style of audio imaging. The feel varies from wide-screen cinematic pieces to industrial, violent and highly intense IDs.

For the third year running, XFM launched its Rock School promotion, now rolled out across the network.
Seeking something a little, well, different from the usual XFM sound, the team approached us to produce all the promos and imaging. As the demo proves, we can do silly too.
