Thoughts on Remodernism...

I Think the Remordernists are right; "A true art is the visible manifestation, evidence and facilitator of the soul's journey. Spiritual art does not mean the painting of Madonnas or Buddhas. Spiritual art is the painting of things that touch the soul of the artist. Spiritual art does not often look very spiritual, it ...looks like everything else because spirituality includes everything."

Regarding Composing for Film and Theater...

Music for film often proves hard to compose, especially so in the case of film projects that are about authentic and raw human experiences. I have found working with film director Gaia Farnam and composer / sound scaper DJ Pennington, that less is more. Film music should always play a supporting role relation to script..., cinematography and performance and must never be obtrusive unless so intended. At it's best, it fuctions as a supporting actor or narator with it's highest intention being just that. In illustration, here is a clip of Gaia Farnam's "The Soul Remains"; music composed and produced by DJ Pennington and myself.
