Immediate Music, LLC (commonly known as Immediate Music) is a music composition company based in Santa Monica that is notable for providing a specialized library of high-end trailer music for commercial motion pictures. Since 1992, Immediate Music has licensed music from its library to hundreds of theatrical trailers and television spots for all the major Hollywood studios. The company's music has been featured in the trailers for films such as Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Avatar, Iron Man, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Coraline, Kingdom of Heaven, Dante's Peak, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, X-Men: The Last Stand, the Matrix films, the Spider-Man films, The Wolfman, Assembly and the Harry Potter films.

In 2007, Immediate received an Emmy for "Outstanding Music Composition in a Sports Program" for their work on the 20th Olympic Winter Games.[2] Immediate Music has its own band, called Globus, that fuses cinematic orchestral music with contemporary and world music rhythms. Most public albums for Immediate Music are under the name Immediate and in the epic music genre.


Immediate Music was founded in 1993 by Jeffrey Fayman and Yoav Goren with their first trailer track for Carlito's Way.[3] Originally starting out as making music for film trailers, in 2008 the company opened its libraries to the video game and advertising industries.[4]

The company is based in Santa Monica, California.[3] In addition to Immediate Music, they also operate 1 Revolution Music, a company founded in 2010 that specializes television soundtracks and trailers. Its record label, Imperativa Records that releases albums in the Epic Music genre to the public since 2006.

Trailer Music Live[edit]

On June 27, 2009, Immediate Music put on a concert called Trailer Music Live. A full orchestra and choir performed tracks from Immediate's trailer music library. Additionally, Immediate's cinematic rock band Globus played a set. Music from trailers such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Spider-Man, Lord of the Rings was performed.

Previously, Globus, the trailer music inspired rock band, had performed in England at Wembley, and the success of that venture has led to the US live performance.

Yoav Goren, co-owner and composer for Immediate Music, had this to say about the upcoming concert: "This event was received with such enthusiasm in London, that we felt compelled to bring it to the states. Trailer Music Live is truly a unique live concert experience for movie fans of all ages, featuring a large orchestra, choir and rock band bringing this emotional and epic movie music directly from the screen to the stage."[5]


Immediate Music has released a number of albums that incorporate a wide range of genres, none of which however are commercially available to the general public. The most well known of these is the Themes for Orchestra and Choir series which currently has three multi-disk volumes. For the month of December 2010, Immediate Music made their TFOAC volumes 2 and 3 CDs available for purchase by the public.

In 2012, Imperativa Records announced the Immediate Music catalog CDs are available for purchase with autographs signed by composers Yoav Goren & Jeffrey Fayman. The CDs such as Epic Choral Action #1, Themes For Orchestra And Choir #2: Abbey Road, and Themes For Orchestra And Choir #3 are on a limited year-end promotional run.[6][7]
