Zuzana Gedeon's documentary short Beating Batten played at the 2014 LA International Women's Film Festival March 16th. I did two of the music cues. If you're interested in stem cell research, this film is for you.


Music for the suiting-up scene in the new film Rocketman and the Aerial Fortress.

COULD THIS BE... the best scene in the whole movie?

FIND OUT... by watching the video! Also, this one!

Not only did I get the opportunity to use the heroic theme, it's at a pivotal juncture when the hero suits up, and there is even a bit of the bad guy theme in there as well.

“Long Road” 1M1 : Sweeping, epic voyage. Recorded with 50-piece orchestra at Studio X in Seattle. Mixed by Reed Ruddy.



Documentary Film: Beating Batten. Live studio recording of score for the scene where we meet young Sara through a playful photo montage (Cue 1M2: “Sara Intro”) Recorded at Studio X.

Documentary Film: Beating Batten. Cue 1M4 “Slow Decline” Recorded at Studio X.

Picture a seductress a la Basic Instinct in a smoky pool hall. Orchestrated for woodwinds, it features chromaticism prominently in both the melody and texture.

Marilyn's Dress: Cue 1M1 “Dance Alone”

Recorded at London Bridge. This is an example of one of the more difficult things to do in film scoring: portray more than one mood simultaneously. The moods playing against each other here are carefree innocence and silent menace. Watch for the big dirty boot.
