In another look behind the scenes of the Snickers Superbowl ad, Shoot Online reveals how the music was orchestrated.

“Storefront Music’s recent Big Game spot featuring an ‘ageless’ Marilyn Monroe portrayed by actor Willem Dafoe for Snickers highlights the kind of authentic approach to music that lies at the heart of everything the music house composes and records.

According to Storefront co-founder Adam Elk, his team of composers crafted a handful of pieces inspired by film scores of the 1950’s. ‘We hired great string and horn players, recording them through period-appropriate microphones and pre-amps,’ says Elk. ‘We wanted to produce a score that sounded like it was recorded at Capitol Records in 1955.'”
