Canal Plus tv channel idents
The Canal Plus ‘Family Channel’ audio identity features a series of playful, upbeat pieces of music that are intended to appeal to both children and adults. The animations in series 1 are visual representations of the musical elements, each quarter of the screen reacts to a different part of the sound. In series 2 the music retains a similar personality but is expanded into a wider range of quirky emotions.
The four note mnemonic accompanying the logo is a key part of the brand identity. It retains the same melody but has a different texture on each ident.
The ‘Cinema Channel’ features music that abstracts in brief the emotions associated with different movie genres – action, horror, science fiction etc.
