Some very kind words about my music for Forged:

"The musical score is BEAUTIFUL, which actually took me by surprise for such a gritty movie. The musical queues are pretty much flawless and add some hope to an otherwise hopeless story." (Film Equals)

So, you can watch and hear the film, as it is now officially on Netflix

La Soga is playing on MTV3 this month. Be sure to check it out!

The score for "La Soga" is in the can! I'm proud to say it's my best work yet, featuring the talents of many amazing musicians (more on that later...). La Soga will be premiering at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Response for this film so far at private screenings has been phenomenal, including this blurb:

"A searing portrayal of a killer's quest for redemption..."La Soga" is many things: a crime story, a love story, and a no-holds-barred examination of the costs of vengeance. It is also flat-out brilliant."
- Junot Diaz,
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of
The Brief Wondrous LIfe of Oscar Wao


In addition, I've started work on Will Wedig's next film, "Forged." This one will be another standout!

April
Things have gotten extremely busy! Work continues on "La Soga" and will wrap up in May. In addition, I wrote some music for Nickelodeon, which will be posted on the 'Film' page soon. I was also asked to participate in the ASCAP/Columbia Film Music Scoring Workshop. I worked with director Morgan Faust to produce the 2009 Columbia Film Festival Trailer. This was a special experience--I wrote, orchestrated and conducted music for a chamber orchestra (consisting of NYC's top musicians) that was then recorded and mixed at famed Legacy Studios. You can see the result here: http://www.cufilmfest.com

 

January
I've started work on the score for "La Soga," a new feature film by Josh Crook. The movie was shot in the Dominican Republic, featuring the gorgeous cinematography of Zeus Morand. This project is chock full of music--in addition to the awesome source music by a variety of Dominican artists, my own compositions range in style from solo guitar to bracing atmospheric sounds inspired by the dreamlike quality of the film. Look out for this one!

October
Quick update: I've finished music on another series of children's audio books for Live Oak Media. The series, called Robin Hill School will be out soon. For all those with youngsters learning to read, you can buy them (along with "Earl the Squirrel," for which I also wrote the music) here:

 

July
In a brief lull, I finally found time to update the calendar. I've been busy the past couple of months with two main projects.

First, I wrote the music to the audio book version of the classic children's book "Earl the Squirrel." The audio book is being produced by John Marshall Sound, who recentely helped record the Grammy Award winning audio-book "Lies And The Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair And Balanced Look At The Right" by Al Franken. "Earl the Squirel" is still being finished, so I have no links or info on where to buy yet. But I'll post a short sample when I can.

Second (and much more time-consuming), I've composed and produced the score to the thriller "A Kiss of Chaos." I think this is my best score yet, featuring my own guitar playing on many cues. The movie itself is a notch above most urban thrillers, incorporating several layers of metaphor into the ol' drug-deal-gone-bad story. Plus, the cast is a great collection of indie up-and-comers. Keep an eye out for it!
