I was the music copyist for composer Barry Brisk and the Beach Cities Symphony, preparing the manuscripts for a new concert work for orchestra which he wrote called “Serenade.” The piece will be performed in the 2007 season.
Director Adam Biggs created a short film called Two People. Instead of writing the music for this film, I was the sound designer and audio mix engineer. We finished the final dub today, it sounds great, and he’ll be submitting it to festivals soon.
Today we had orchestral recording sessions with composer Marcelo Zarvos, recording his film score for The Air I Breathe. We used a 50-piece string orchestra at the famous Fox Studios Newmann stage. I was assistant music editor on this project, helping editor Josh Winget, who is the head of 2 Pop Music. The film will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next April. The film stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and was written and directed by filmmaker Jieho Lee.
My film score for Maytal Gilboa’s film Tommy And Lucy is finished. The main character is a small lost child, so we used a fairly small orchestra for the score. I mixed and mastered the music in my Torrance studio. Maytal is the manager and producer of Emet Entertainment, which focuses in part on empowering female creators and storytellers in comics.
Iris Ichishita’s film Homeless Karaoke was shown today at the annual Evening of Arts & Entertainment. I composed the score as part of the PBS International Documentary Challenge, and it was initially premiered both on PBS and in the Hot Docs festival in Toronto. Iris is a contributor to many web videos and series by Good Magazine.
Blue Shield Of California has chosen my music for their new television advertising campaign. The music will be used indefinitely for all of their TV ads statewide. There were about thirty composers bidding for this job, so I’m happy (and probably lucky) to get it.
I just finished composing the score for Christopher Sepulveda’s film Anyone Anywhere. The film is a somber look at the power each one of us has over those around us, and the ways that power can sometimes be abused. I composed a score for the film which is somber and subtle.
Shana Furlow’s film “The White Rose” was filmed over the weekend here in Los Angeles on the Universal Studios backlot. I will be scoring the film, so I brought my manuscript paper along and began writing the film’s music while on set. Composers don’t often have the opportunity to be involved in a film production so early in the process, and I’m grateful for the chance to sink into the story.
