• Currently working on 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. But before that I'll be scoring HELLO GOODBYE ELEPHANT, a very original and magical film by Cory Santilli.
• 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. Just got word we'll have a release in the near future - but of course cannot give details! 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!
COLD NOVEMBER by Karl Jacob is 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. Premiere coming this fall, will post as soon as I'm allowed to! For score excerpts, see new additions page.

SCENE QUEEN, a feature film by Austin filmmaker and writer Janet Harvey, about female teen bullies and social media, will be playing on Saturday Aug 5 at the San Antonio Film Festival. 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.
