ALBUM DESCRIPTION Ethereal, evocative, emotionally-charged original score to the film, The Plural of Blood. ALBUM NOTES Director Mary-Lyn Chambers and I started discussing the score months before principal photography began. She shared with me her ideas of what the score needed to feel like emotionally. I was able to take her ideas and suggestions and craft a score that utlizes child vocal solos, women’s choir, and synthesized instruments to evoke feelings of interconnectivity and turmoil between our characters as we tell their intricate story. Winner of the Silver Medal from 2017...

The Plural of Blood score recording session, completed!

Yesterday, we recorded my score to The Plural of Blood, dir. by Mary-Lyn Chambers at Riot Drum Studio. The score featured ethereal child solos sung by Dalia, the very daughter of our vocal contractor, Ayana Haviv. Dalia’s voice added so much innocence and depth to the score and we were all extremely happy to have Dalia sing on our score. Later that day, we also recorded our quartet: Ayana Haviv, Elyse Willis, Aleta Braxton, and Clydene Jackson. This amazing group of women sang and heightened all emotional components of the score and brought musicality and artistry to it as well. I could not be happier with their performance. We even had some aleatoric bits in the score with Ayana and Clydene belting out some “wails” and they were spot on and...

Completed the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis

Friday, August 5th, marked the last day of the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis. I felt incredibly happy to have experienced this workshop and very thankful for all the new friends I’ve made through the workshop as well. During the month, I had an incredible time learning even more about the film scoring business. We met heads of music, music editors, JoAnn Kane Music Service (the same people who prepare the scores and parts for John Williams, John Powell, and others), we honed our conducting, we wrote a cue for an assigned scene from an A-List film, and finally recorded that music with a 64-piece orchestra at the Newman Scoring Stage at Fox Studios. I’m still reeling from the fact that we were allowed to record with such a large group...

THE BETTER SISTER SCORE COMPLETED

The Better Sister is a hilarious new comedy directed and starring Miranda Russo and Tonya Corneliesse.  Miranda plays Stella, the sister who does everything right in life, follows all the rules, yet doesn’t get very far.  On the other hand, Tonya plays Blanche, a dropout with no direction, yet she is The Better Sister! I had a wonderful time working on the score to this hilarious short film. The instrumentation varies from solo violin, to percussive hits, to epic orchestra to symbolize an all out battle between two sisters! Check out the score...
