Original Music from "Supporting Characters"

The score I composed and recorded for Dan Schechter's film "Supporting Characters" starring Alex Karpovsky, Tarik Lowe, Arielle Kebbel, Kevin Corrigan, Sophia Takai & Lena Dunham (premiering April 20th at Tribeca Film Festival) is available to download on itunes.

As this Sonic Scoop article explains, Schechter helped with the edit on both of my films (Alter Egos and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Undead) and both film trailers.

Here's the trailer for Supporting Characters (you can sample a bit of my score which plays throughout.)

Superheroes and Femme Fatales for the Holidays

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a Christmas elf, cheerily hammering away in Santa’s workshop all year? After a year like this, I know what it’s like. So here are some of the Christmas treats I’ve been building and polishing for you.

For the nostalgic Super hero fan in all of us, remembering a time when colorful tights were all the rage, here’s the teaser trailer for a new film I’ve been working on called “Alter Egos” starring many familiar faces from “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead.”

Here’s the link:

And because there’s nothing more Christmas-y than a beautiful girl with a gun shooting bad guys here’s my “To The Top” Video, starring the gorgeous, charming and deadly Aurelie Claudel, directed by Heidi Hartwig, in case you missed it.

Stuff your digital stockings with the whole “To The Top” album available at i-tunes.

If you’re sentimental for the days of Dopo Yume, put “True Romance” (with new bonus tracks) under your digital tree.

New 4 song EP in the works...

After releasing two fairly mellow acoustic style records, I’ve been making an EP of four songs that is a little bit closer to my first Dopo Yume full length in energy, synthy-ness and bass riffs. But if you still crave the acoustic, don’t worry, because 1 of the 4 is as east village open-mic café-style as I’ve ever done.

It will be released in late Spring, but for now, check out this video from last month in the studio.

Remixing Metaphores: Making of "Shroedinger's Cat" Music Video

I got the call on a Wednesday afternoon that we needed to film the video the following Monday at Union Pool. I was lucky enough to get an awesome, hardworking last minute skeleton crew willing to spend Halloween weekend building sets and doing pre-production. Sean and Charlotte did all the historical costumes and took care of casting themselves, which made it possible to put it together so quickly. Below is a video filmed on the set and some story boards I drew. We had only 8 hours to load in and film every shot, clean up and load out before Union Pool opened to the public.
