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.

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...

ASCAP Foundation Awards in New York

I was in NYC this past week to receive the ASCAP Foundation’s Michelle and Dean Kay Award for an outstanding composer from the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis this past summer.

When we met during the reception, he told me the story of when he wrote “That’s Life” and Frank Sinatra propelled to amazing heights, opening so many doors for Dean. The evening was a star-studded event. Stephen Schwartz...
