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…

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…

Resident Evil

Resident Evil comes out today!! I mixed this score for composer Paul Haslinger. This was my first project with Paul, who I really admire as a composer. His technical abilities and his  need for sonic clarity gel well with mine. We clicked right away on style and direction. Track 4, “The Turbine Sequence” was a blast…

Hacksaw Ridge

Director Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” comes out today. I mixed this one for composer Rupert Gregson-Williams whom I love working with.  The orchestra played supremely on this one! Everyone did. It’s rare I get to mix with virtually no sample instruments these days, so this one was a real pleasure. Rupert’s melodies are gorgeous and…

Arrival arrives today!!

Arrival comes out today! It’s always nice working with Johann. The vocal performances by Theater of Voices and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe that represent the “visitors” are haunting, etherial and beautiful. I love putting Johann’s music in 5.1. I so wish everyone could experience what I get to when mixing these cues. While in stereo, it’s…

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

This project was a long time in the making! I was hired by composer John Graham to mix the trailer for this movie a year before we started recording the music for the film. Below is the trailer.   Being able to use the composers music in the trailer is rare, so this was very…

Tokyo Ghoul gives screen credit to the mixer!

  I’m very excited to get a screen credit for my mix of the popular Japanese TV show Tokyo Ghoul. It basically never happens, so I’m very grateful to my Japanese friends for making this possible. I had a blast mixing with composer Yutaka Yamada and Music Director/Editor Kohei Chida. Special thanks to Koyo Sonae…

Water Polo Yankees!

Here’s another TV show from our friends over in Japan. This one is again composed by Yutaka Yamada with musical direction by Kohei Chida, the team behind Tokyo Ghoul. This was a fun project. It’s all about Yankees! In Japan “yankee” refers to delinquent youths. Rebels and water polo…Who knew?! I mixed this show from my home…

Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” is a wrap!

We finished up the music mix to Kevin Smith’s new film “Tusk” last night. There are so many cool things about this movie I wish I could tell you about. Kevin’s done a brilliant job and so did Christopher Drake in creating the sonic landscape to this amazingly disturbing film! I can’t wait for you…

Tokyo Ghoul cocktail debuts in L.A.

  The crew from Japan were back for a week of mixing at RCP. Tokyo Ghoul is a very big comic book over in Japan and they’ve made it into an animated tv show. Composer Yutaka Yamada wrote some brilliant music and some really beautiful melodies to help capture the emotion of the show. Tokyo…

Tusk…The mix begins.

We’ve started the score mix on the new Kevin Smith film Tusk! Composer Christopher Drake (Batman Arkham Origins)  is composing the score. I can’t say too much, but it’s a trip! I’m going to have to work on the cocktail for this one to try and match Kevin’s psyche. See you on the other side! And…

Deep Burial and a Hobbit at Remote Control

I finished the score mix on Deep Burial today with composer Christian Davis. It was great to work with Christian again as it’s been a couple of years since he left the womb of Remote Control to venture out into the wild world of the independent film composer. He’s done really well for himself and…

12 Years A Slave wins Best Picture at the Oscars!

A big congratulations to Steve McQueen, Hans Zimmer, Katrina Schiller, Ben Wallfisch and the entire music team for getting Best Picture honors at the 2014 Oscars! It was an honor to be able to mix this project and to have Steve & Hans on the couch behind me going over things was a real treat….
