To mark Memorial Day, I posted the above snippet from an early film score on soundcloud. It’s from the 2007 documentary “Outspoken: Los Angeles” directed by David Bianchi.
The film features several extremely emotional interviews with families that lost their sons in the Iraq war. I watched these hundreds of times while writing the music. As the score neared completion almost a month later, their stories could still bring me to tears. I’ve never felt a greater responsibility for ensuring the music supports, honors, but in no way distracts from the highly personal stories onscreen.
I am grateful for our soldiers, and know that I may never fully comprehend the magnitude of their sacrifices.
