Currently at work on the score for the feature drama AXIS SALLY, directed by Michael Polish and starring Al Pacino and Meadow Williams. The film is based on William Owen’s book Axis Sally Confidential and tells the true story of Mildred “Axis Sally” Gillars, the American who became the voice of German propaganda targeted at U.S. troops during World War II.
THE OUTER WILD is available on iTunes, Amazon Prime and similar outlets, released as part of the inaugural slate of Red Hound Films, the new digital platform of Blue Fox Entertainment. After an unnatural event leaves mankind nearly extinct, a runaway woman and a rogue bounty hunter brave a dangerous wilderness to find a fabled sanctuary that can either save or destroy what's left of humanity. The film, a thrilling and intelligent post-apocalyptic western-meets-ghost-story, premiered at SciFi London last May, and I couldn’t be prouder of the result. The score features dirty electronics that sound as if held together by wire and duct tape, as well as super-balled sheet metal and an ancient colony lullaby (watch the film and you’ll understand.)

After a brief theatrical run, GONE ARE THE DAYS is available as a Lionsgate release on iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets. GONE ARE THE DAYS, directed by Mark Landre Gould, is a classic redemption Western featuring an insanely brilliant performance by the one-and-only Lance Henriksen, whose breathtaking performance is found in nearly every frame, plus Academy-award nominee Tom Berenger and the always brilliantly colorful Danny Trejo. The score uses drone techniques borrowed from classic American folklore, blending a live orchestra with solos featuring banjo and fiddle virtuoso David Bragger. For score excerpts, click here.
