The Grand Debut of "Synergy"

The team at Alipes is a group of talented strategists, creatives, and technologists. But one thing you may not know is that many members of our team are also passionate about music!

We have joked for many years about forming our very own Alipes band. The name? Synergy.

This holiday season, we finally made it happen.

Because of COVID-19, we could not facilitate many of our standard holiday traditions. I will personally miss the signature "Bake-Off," where we crown a winner and eat way too much amazing food. 

To do something special, we decided to collaborate on an audio-visual experiment. To prove we really do have a "synergy," we worked with nothing but a simple piano prompt of Deck the Halls in F Major / 120 BPM. Referencing that individual track, we split up and separately contributed our own voices, instruments, video clips, and more, with very little in the way of team consultation.

With all the elements finally organized, our very own Ryan edited and mixed the final song. Jason organized all of our clips and made the final video. The final result is below, along with who did what! We give you–with our debut performance–Synergy!

Lyrics

Deck the halls with team Alipes

And bring about some Synergy ch-eer!
Fa la la la la, la la la la
