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.
