Replicas

Replicas, staring Keanu Reeves, tells the story of a biologist who violates all possible laws and principles in order to bring his family members back to life, after they died in a car accident. The score by Mark Killian was a blast to mix.  I believe is comes out in January 2019, so look out…

Darksiders III

Darksiders III is out now! This score is fantastic from composer Cris Velasco. I especially like the track Lust. It’s a beautiful melody that you’ll be humming along to long after the game is over. I mixed and mastered the soundtrack album, out now!

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Composer Hildur Guðnadóttir, who played cello on the first Sicario movie for composer Johann Johannsson, took over composing duties on the great series. Hildur did an fantastic job putting her stamp on the series while continuing the dark theme and soundscapes.    

Higher Power

Award-winning Composer Kevin Riepl brought me on to master the soundtrack to his score for the film Higher Power.

Upgrade

I mastered the soundtrack to this really cool sci-fi film from composer Jed Palmer.

Dauntless

Just finished up the score to the highly anticipated video game Dauntless for composer Cris Velasco. In the first four days of beta they had over 1 million downloads! Amazing! It’s a beautifully visual and dynamic sonic experience. I really enjoyed working on this one with Cris.

Patrick Melrose

Volker Bertelmann scored this amazing series for Showtime. It was an intense project which dealt with substance abuse and child abuse. Volker’s score, which is different for each episode to help show the growth of the character, was fun to mix because there were so many different character developments to sculpt. Obviously there were the…

Fahrenheit 451

Just finished mastering the soundtrack to the new HBO movie Fahrenheit 451. Composers Antony Partos and Matteo Zingales scored the project and their dark score certainly helps shape the dystopian landscape of the film. I’m currently reading the book for the first time and the parallels between what author Ray Bradbury wrote in 1953 and now…

Hotel Mumbai

Hotel Mumbai tells the story of the 2008 attacks on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in India. This one was harrowing to watch and composer Volker Bertelmann does well to capture the darkness and sheer terror of this tragic event. The release date is TBD.  

Infini-T Force

I just finished mixing the movie version of Infini-T Force for which I also mixed the tv series music last year. Composer Yutaka Yamada nailed it again with the dark and dramatic score to this fun tv series and movie.  

R.I.P Johann

Today Johann Johannsson left us. He was not only an outstanding composer and musician, but a gentleman of the highest order. I was lucky to mix three scores for him, Prisoners, Sicario, and Arrival.  He’s pictured here at RCP reworking the arrangement to one of the cues on Prisoners with music editor Joseph DeBeasi, before…

Gunpowder

Gunpowder, is now showing on HBO and stars Kit Harington, in the story of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.  The music was composed by Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann).

The Current War

  The Current War was a fascinating film to mix. This one was co-composed by Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O’Halloran, the same two who did the Oscar nominated “Lion”. The score featured the piano textures they are both known for and atmospheres that help showcase the current between Westinghouse and Edison.  

Geostorm

I had the pleasure to work with Lorne Balfe again for Geostorm. This is a big action movie, which means big, musical dynamics and power. There were many passes of orchestra and live percussion. The brass players blew their hearts out on this one.
