I just finished the International Documentary Challenge, a timed film making competition. I was the composer for Iris Ichishita’s film Homeless Karaoke, a documentary about a very unique program for the homeless on skid row in Los Angeles. All of the percussion for the film score was made with junk percussion that could conceivably be found on the streets, lending a unique and authentic texture to the score. The film will be 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.
