MUSIC FOR FILM
SCENE FROM "DISCOVERING ARDI" - (DOCUMENTARY) Excerpts from the Discovery Channel 2-hour Special. Ten years in the making and in collaboration with over 3 dozen scientist from around the world, this documentary explores the origins of man. Ardipithecus Ramidus, at 4.5 million years old, is the oldest known hominid. I crafted a score which includes elements of wind instruments, vocals and percussion from Africa, married to traditional western-style harmonies and orchestration.
SCENE FROM "S I N I S T E R" - NIGHT TERRORS (HORROR) I co-composed this with Christopher Young.
SCENE FROM "ECSTATIC" (ROMANTIC-COMEDY) Writer/Director/Actor David Knell made this sweet and charming, award-winning short.
THE LORD'S PRAYER (MUSIC VIDEO) This features Saige Walker, the male soloist in the first verse, and Belle Erskine, the female soloist in the second. Belle's husband, Richard, played guitars. This is typical of the way we work these days. Belle and Richard live in London - their session was remote. I played the rest of the instruments. Background vocals were sung by members of the BelAir Presbyterian choir. Editor: Veronica DiPippo. Lyrics by Jesus Christ, of course. This song is available on iTunes. Proceeds are split with the God of Hope ministry.
