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…

Sicario at the Oscars!

Good luck to Sicario composer Johann Johannsson tomorrow night. It was a pleasure mixing this one and it definitely deserves the Oscar nomination. I mean, come on! Those drums!

The Frozen Ground-Now on Netflix!

Just a quick post today letting you know that “The Frozen Ground”, starring John Cusack and Nicolas Cage is out on Netflix. This one went under the radar so not many people know about it. It’s based on a true story and Cusack plays a really convincing baddy. The composer was Lorne Balfe and I actually mixed this one…

Tusk trailer arrives today!

  The trailer for Tusk came out today. I can’t wait for people to see this film. It’s one of the more interesting projects I’ve worked on as of late. This picture is definitely going to surprise, excite, & horrify some people.Trying to make the music stand out over the screams was a challenge, but…

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…

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…

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…
