Struble and Rangel team up for ‘AARP Movies for Grownups Awards.’
By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.
Two Scottville natives are teaming up on a new musical adventure. For years, music producer Edgar Struble and sound engineer Luke Rangel have worked together on several Dick Clark Productions awards shows, such as the Billboard Music Awards, American Academy of Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, and the Hollywood Film Awards. The duo is taking on a new adventure, for a “mature” audience.” Struble has written the theme and incidental music for “AARP Movies for Grownups Awards” to be featured on PBS on Friday, Feb. 23 at 9 p.m. See more here.
“This is a new client and PBS is new network for me. I was referred by one of the producers at Dick Clark Productions specifically because they knew I could deliver high-quality pre-recorded music,” Edgar said.
“So Luke and I really got after this one, as the producers wanted a contemporary orchestral sound. Writing, mixing and recording string and horns with the usual synths and rhythm instruments takes a good bit of time.
“We were able to finish ahead of schedule and actually delivered a few more cues than they asked for. Luke and I make a great team. His ear for mixing is amazing, and he has a great sense of what works, both phonically and musically. We’ve worked together for a good many years and he’s developed into a writer/producer/engineer who can really hold his own at this level.”
Edgar is a 1969 graduate of Mason County Central High School and Luke is a 1995 graduate of MCC. Both now reside in southern California (Edgar also splits his time living in Ludington as well).
