> Hi George:
> The Solaris music, it's more of a 'sound design drone' as we call it, was created by on of our writers and is available for licensing through RipTide Music. It was not used on the Lexus commercial that you mentioned although I'll look out for it to see how similar it is.
> Let me know if you or someone you represent has interest in licensing this track, what the intended use would be and and where it would play and from that information we can discuss a fee.
> I'm emailing you on my traveling hotmail account so please respond to my regular email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll recieve it where ever I am.
> Thanks for you interest.

Just as a side note...The song depends on which trailer....according to 20th Century Fox's marketing department, the two TV trailers have different music and I don't knwo which is which. The songs are 'The Journey' by X-Ray Dog (A music publishing group that does a lot of music for trailers and commercials) and 'Light from a Dead Star' by Lush. The online trailer has an even different song, but I don't know what it is at all.
