I scored I WANTED TO BE A MAN WITH A GUN (dir. William Farley) during lockdown. It’s finally getting it’s world premiere October 27th, 9pm, at Mitchell Park, Palo Alto, Farley, editor Levien, and I (and others) will hold a Q&A after the screening. Make an evening of it! Mitchell Park is beautiful with great restaurants nearby, or bring a picnic/grill, saunter the grounds, visit the Barron Park donkeys, have a hike, take the train down, shop the boutiques in downtown, there’s a great bookstore and many unique clothing shops, 34 miles from SF. Films take a village to make and a decade to complete and this one is no exception. Genius sound designer/musician Phil Perkins mixed. What’s not to love?
Film scoring is my favorite work, my father predicted it would be so before he passed. Recent scores include the lyrical VOICES BEYOND THE WALL (dir. Brad Coley) (score not yet released) with a trip-hop song at it’s visual climax of a Coca~Cola sign overlooking San Pedro Sula, Honduras. I got to records on a song or two w/his daughter Lila Blue.
Ensemble Russian Telegraph performed the closing credit roll song THE BOYS WHO SAID NO! of my score for dir. Judith Ehrlich’s brilliant doc. that’s filled w/legendary icons and premiered during lockdown. Well worth checking out.
The director I’ve worked most often with is the brilliant Cathy Lee Crane, having scored her Crossing Columbus, The Manhattan Front, Pasolini’s Last Words, and On the Line. Cathy directed Eighty Mile Beach’s Red Helicopters video that we filmed during my residency at HCA. Our many collaborations started in friendship, Cathy was my neighbor on Lundys Lane and a Trance Mission fan.
SKY w/Will Bernard release is still getting alot of attention and YOU can hear it live, November 15th, in Berkeley, at Babette, stop in, sit under the redwood, have a sip and a plate, while you experience SKY. We’ll have a merch table wherein you can get all your holiday shopping done early!
