I’m very happy that this day is finally here. New Mudvillemusic is here today via Ropeadope Records. It’s the end titles track for my friend Nelson Kim’s film Someone Else, the feature film I scored last year. It’s available now from iTunes as well as our bandcamp store.
NYC Unforeseen, the debut record from Bob Wijnen that we’ve been working on since last November, is DONE! I’m producing, engineering and mixing on this one. Just got it back from ace mastering engineer Gene Paul and it sounds great. I went over there last week as I love to hear Gene tell me stories about “the old man” (Les) and recording Aretha and MJQ at Atlantic back in the day once the work is done.
I’m really happy with how this record came off. The Steinway D at the Samurai Hotel sounds great and we had a fun two days of recording without headphones in the same room, old school. Never hurts to have the likes of Peter Bernstein on guitar, Dezron Douglas on bass and Billy Drummond on drums. Makes things go quite smoothly actually.
This one should be out in the next couple of months so look for it. I have the title track in my producing/mixing playlist so you can go here to listen to it right now.
I’m very excited to be some of the cast and crew of Someone Else at its world premiere tomorrow night at the Miami International Film Festival.Marilyn Carino from Mudville will be joining me. Not only did I write, produce, record and mix the entire score for the film, but Mudville wrote a new song for the end credits as well. (We also have “Joy” and “Duke” from Iris Nova in the film.) We’re expecting to see writer/director Nelson Kim, lead actor Aaron Yoo (who is amazing) and producers Geoff Quan and Brandon Harris.
The film is screening at the historic Tower Theatre in Little Havana and I’m really excited to see it on a big screen and hear my score in surround! H/T to Eli Cohn for the sound mix on the film.
So I wrote the score to this film last year, Someone Else. Written and directed by my friend Nelson Kim, it’s a great city mouse/country mouse story about two Korean-American cousins. The buttoned up law student comes to New York City for the summer to visit his relative, the playboy actor. Drug use and girlfriend-switching ensue and the film has a Mulholland Drive-esque twist two-thirds of the way through. I’ve been told the score is “creepy” and “disturbing”. You be the judge.
