Scott Moore on How His Career Led Him to Deepak and Oprah

ScottMoore

Scott E. Moore has quite the resume: He’s an accomplished musician with five solo albums under his belt and has worked for big networks like MTV/VH1, TNT and Turner Movie Classics as a director and producer. For the past five years, Moore has been the creative director of a site that provides visual medical information.

He just completed his latest project — creating two hours of original music for Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey‘s 21- Day Meditation Challenge. In the latest Mediabistro feature, Moore explains how he came to be a part of the project:

So how did you go from creating videos for TheVisualMD to working on Deepak and Oprah’s Meditation Challenge?
Deepak was one of our colleagues on a project on the physiological science of emotional bonding between mother and infant. An old colleague who was working with Deepak on this meditation challenge told me they wanted to raise it up a couple of notches. Even though a lot of people participated, the product wasn’t at the quality level they felt it should be… So the person who handles the Chopra Center Digital Properties was in a crisis. And I just so happened to have just started my agency, and this project would be right up my alley. Ironically, I had started playing atmospheric, soul music live in a yoga studio, which would sell out every month. I played Deepak some of that music, and that’s when it all kind of came full circle and I got the opportunity to do this project.
