Young Ones

You can hear different elements of my score for Jake Paltrow’s upcoming film Young Ones woven through the new French trailer. The movie is a bleak and subtle sci-fi western, and the score utilizes lots of marxophone, harmonium, horns, strings, synthesizers, and harmonicas.

I always appreciate when a trailer uses the actual score from the film. It’s not bombastic, it’s not oversold, it just feels accurate. You know; it feels like the actual movie the trailer is convincing you to see.

Just did an interesting interview with Randall Winston for PMc Magazine which I really enjoyed. Fun to talk about process, fears, limitations, and other artists who I look up to. Also a bit about two of the upcoming films I scored, as well as how my favorite T.S. Eliot quote applies to film composing.

Making the music for Don Jon

Here’s a little featurette that my friend Cat put together about the making of the score for Don Jon. I had so much fun working with Joe on this film, along with my core team of Judson Crane, Son Lux, and Jonny Rodgers

I know the movie has been out for a while, but if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check it out. It’s a really unique project with great performances and a really fresh approach to the music and editing process which reflects Joe’s skill as both a finely-tuned collaborator and director.
