Stephen Arnold Music

The Most Heard, Least Known Composers In America

Time For Another Giveaway! (UPDATED with winners)

Update: And the winners are . . .

To celebrate the release of our new syndicated news package “iNews”, we’ve decided to do another giveaway. This one is a little different, though.

As you may know, in the past we’ve given away some guitars. Considering the cross-platform nature of this new package, we’ve decided to go a slightly different direction this time. How does this strike you: an iPhone, a notebook computer, and an LCD HDTV!

Simply leave a comment below to enter the drawing. We’ll draw three names; the first will win the iPhone, the second gets the laptop, and the third name will take home the TV.

Click here for contest rules. Some restrictions apply.

    Big fan of the texture and layering at about 0:26 into the clip — the lower register adds a nice depth to the overall piece. Nice job!

  2. Dan K October 27, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    Memorable signature line!

  3. Blake Russell October 27, 2009 at 9:04 pm

    Stephen-You guys have hit a home run with this one. I love it!

  4. Michael Fabac October 27, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Stephen & team – I really like the 6-note logo… it’s memorable & works well in the various cuts. As always, you’ve put together a unique & versatile sound. Good job!

  5. Roger Vertrees October 27, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    Sounds great! (As always.) Lovin’ the new package we have from you guys, which has the same potential as this one. Hmmm? We need to talk soon!

  6. Tommy Davis October 27, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    Very nice, I’d like to win the chance to hang out in the studio with you.

  7. Aaron October 27, 2009 at 6:42 pm

  8. Barry Smith October 27, 2009 at 5:52 pm

  23. Jarrod Schwartz October 27, 2009 at 2:42 pm

    FYI… I was trying to watch the sample YouTube video highlight the music package, but couldn’t find a location to turn off this page’s music bed!

    Hopefully the boss will let us put this in the budget for ’10!

  52. Joe R. October 27, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    Sounds good! But I’d rather win a guitar.

  67. Nick Allard October 27, 2009 at 1:29 pm

  87. Chris October 22, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Great stuff Stephen….how could you not own the market with quality music like this.

    For someone who has the TV on night and day the music sends me those little nuggets that “it is time to pay attention”, your branding has always provided that to me!

  88. Mathew Sheen October 22, 2009 at 7:59 pm
