Atrinea is a physician-owned and operated franchise organization that offers doctors who are struggling to keep their practices viable in the current economy an alternative to selling out to large hospitals or groups where they become employees.
Lou Bruno, creative director of Bruno Advertising in Santa Fe, New Mexico, brought Hoffman into the project.
“Lou and Atrinea were seeking a piece with a feeling of American heritage and the strength of the heartland,” said Hoffman, who is known in the Charlotte area primarily as a performer with this jazz quartet and as founder of the Salisbury School of Music. “It was my goal to capture the sound most often referred to as Americana.”
To do that, Hoffman found inspiration in “hymn-like melodies influenced by German church music -- harmonization with open fourths and fifths, brass, percussion, and, perhaps of most importantly, ample ‘space’ implied by long note values and rests,” he said. “These elements were brought together by Aaron Copland and have since been associated with the vast American landscape. There's a sense hope and opportunity in this style. I thought it suited the Atrinea model perfectly."
Atrinea’s mission was also inspirational, he said: “Atrinea Health is doing its part to assure a smooth transition in the changing landscape of healthcare in the US. I was honored to contribute to this exciting opportunity for healthcare providers."
The background music Hoffman created is now live at www.atrineahealthfrachise.com.
This is the second background composition Hoffman has created this year for a website. In March, he completed an ethereal music bed for www.bushloper.com, a website devoted to Michael Green’s research and exploration into the “Bigfoot,”
"It was a pleasure working with Lou Bruno and the Bruno Advertising Agency on the Atrinea composition,”
