• Currently working on two films: THE OUTER WILD, a post-apocalyptic western ghost story by director Philip Chidel. For a sneak-peek teaser of the upcoming score, see the new additions page. Also coming up - MERCURY IN RETROGRADE, a comedy-drama by Michael Glover Smith about three couples vacationing in a cabin outside Chicago. Over the course of their three days there, hidden tensions and secrets slowly come to the surface. The score will feature a chamber ensemble w lush melodies and harmonies.
• Finished the score for GONE ARE THE DAYS, an absolutely gorgeous classic Western from director Mark Landre Gould in the tradition of "Unforgiven" starring Lance Henriksen, Tom Berenger and Danny Trejo. The score features a 23-piece orchestra recorded in Chicago, plus LA's own David Bragger on banjo and fiddle. For a couple of score excerpts, see the new additions page. Enjoy!
• I also completed the score for COLD NOVEMBER by Karl Jacob, an intimate coming-of-age story following an eleven year old girl growing up in rural Minnesota with her mother and grandmother as she is about to shoot her first deer, continuing an old family tradition. The score features pianos recorded at varying distances, electric guitar, close-mic'd violins and various electronic sounds and processing. Stay tuned for premiere info. For score excerpts, see the new additions page.
SCENE QUEEN, a new feature film by Austin filmmaker and writer Janet Harvey, about female teen bullies and social media, has just been released. It features a raw, EDM-influenced electronic score that seemlessly blends with the film's setting and the emotional, unfiltered performances of its actresses. For a taste of the score, see the new additions page.
