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!
Finished mixing the score to Great Plains today. Todd Haberman scored this one. The guitar (my favorite instrument, of course) plays a key role in this score. Based on a true story of domestic abuse, Todd used the acoustic guitar to show the beauty of the landscape and of a mothers hope. The electric melody was brought…
I finished mixing the score to this hilarious feature this week! As with all great spoofs, it goes after plenty of other great films from the past year. I highly recommend this one. The score, by composer Jim Dooley strikes the perfect balance between utter hilarity and beautiful score writing. Look for it January 29th!…
The score, co-composed by Jim Dooley and Todd Haberman was so much fun to mix. Being a pure horror movie, I was able to make extensive use of the surrounds and subwoofer to help create movement and dynamics that I usually have to be more subtle with in other genres.
I mixed the score to “The Charnel House” this week, by composer Todd Haberman. Todd’s use of layer synths and sound design creates an errie backdrop for this modern-day ghost story.
I was honored to be asked to master the score portion of the album for composer Dominic Lewis this week. Dominic and I worked together at RCP on many projects, so it was fun to get together again.
Bubuki Buranki is the latest Anime series that I’ve had the pleasure of working on. It was a real pleasure working with composer Masaru Yokoyama who traveled to L.A. to be at the mix with me. We mixed at Remote Control for this one. It was great to see some of the old crew….
Open Season 4, which comes out in 2016 , was a real highlight for me. Composers Rupert Gregson-Williams and Dominic Lewis’ score was absolutely beautiful. No synth orchestra on this one. It’s always a real treat to mix with a live orchestra.
Had a great day at the dub for Yoga Hosers today with composer Christopher Drake and director Kevin Smith. To borrow a quote from Kevin, “it sounds expensive!”
Today I’m working with Danish composer Nicklas Schmidt on the score for Klovn Forever, A Danish comedy feature film. The opening sequence is absolutely hilarious and probably NSFW. I highly recommend checking it out when it gets released later this year.
Today I’m starting on the new Christopher Drake composed, Kevin Smith directed film “Yoga Hosers”. This is the same team that did last years “Tusk”. I just finished watching the rough cut. It’s really funny! This one will be fun to mix. Chris has had to be a chameleon on this one as Kevin has…
Started on Sicario today. A new film from director Denis Villeneuve and composer Johann Johannsson. I watched the film earlier, and it’s fantastic! I’m really excited about this one. Working with Johann is always a pleasure as it’s a very collaborative process.
Started on a new film today called Drawing Home. Composer Ben Holiday did a beautiful job on the score for what is a really delicate and poignant story. This will be released later this year.
I’m excited to be working with composer Nathan Lanier again. Max Steel is a live action film based on the Mattel action figures. It’s got some big names in there and the visual effects look really good.
Anatomy of a Mix-What A Wonderful World by Esperanza Spalding This is one of my favorite mixes that I’ve done. Hans Zimmer composed the music for the 84th Annual Oscar awards in 2012. I was honored to be part of the mixing team that one an Emmy for “Outstanding Sound Mixing” that year, The In…
