Let TONETRIBE MUSIC take care of your music production needs!

Next to his performing career, writing, producing and arranging music has been Ulrich Ellison’s passion for a long time. Reading every engineering book he could get a hold of he was both fascinated and intrigued of the process of composing, recording and producing music in the studio. At age 16 he recorded his first studio project, compiled of 10 tracks in various styles featuring Ulrich on piano, guitars and voice. Out of these humble beginnings, Ulrich developed into a well-rounded composer/arranger and honed his studio skills through a MM in Music Production from the University Of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. Well versed musically, the technical knowledge gave him a serious foundation for projects to come. Then his artistic career kicked in and production took a seat at the backburner. Playing as much as 200 shows a year, there just wasn’t much time to be in the studio except for his original music. In 2018 Ulrich decided to rekindle that love and focus on studio work for other artists as well as licensing. Next to producing 6 of his own albums, Ulrich has recorded and produced 15+ albums ranging from Reggae, Beat Music to Jazz, Rock and Christmas Music. His music has been accepted and placed in various licensing platforms including Audiosparx.com, Indietracks and Fliktrax. He composed the music for the documentary “Hanno und das Haus” (2004), and contributed music to the Texas action horror movie “Cherokee Creek” (2018).

Sometimes less is more. This composition builds tension and anticipation through a minimalistic, thoughtful piano melody. One could imagine for this cue to be part of a bigger musical score that ranges from minimalist to full ochestral score.

Empowering heavy guitar background track ideal for extreme sports. Though powerful cue stays in the background and leaves room for a narrator.

Beautiful, serene music for a glacier water ad. Finding the right balance and emotion in order to advertise your product. We want to hear about your project!

Music that was done for a coffee ad. Uplifting, optimistic, beaming mood that should relate to having a good start into the day. The chord sequence reminded me on a Pink Floyd song hence the title.

Music for Film/Documentary

custom scoring and composing for all sorts of motion picture

Scoring demo for the German Movie “In 3 Tagen”. In this scene, the main actor is looking for her captured friend Mona who is locked in on a mountain hut. The music starts very understated and then picks up momentum as tension rises. Industrial samples and loops were used to convey the desperation of the main actor and create a gloomy, merciless vibe.

Orchestral scoring demo for a scene taken from “Pirates Of The Caribbean”. For demo purposes only

Full Band Productions

Conscious rock by “One World Revolution” and singer Astrum Lux Lucis. Positive Lyrics, a rocking attitude and talent made this an outstanding project to work on.

Guitarist and local Austinite SEFO posesses it all – a keen sense of melody, chops and tone for days, and mature songwriting skills. It’s been a great pleasure to help this dude to make his album vision come to life and develop the sound of this album.

A good song will carry. There is so many ways that music can be transported and stylized and it’s a producer’s job to find the best way to express the personality of the artist. At the end of the day it’s the message that needs to be transported, and a great arrangement will make sure the listener will be drawn in forever.

Big Band jazz has always been one of my passions. Here is an arrangement of the same Sting song in a Frank Sinatra era jazz arrangement, co-arranged and charted by my buddy Gerrit Wunder.
