Compositions & Film Scores
Painting worlds in sound.
Re-scored this scene from the 1980 film, Total Recall, directed by Paul Verhoeven.
One morning I awoke from a dream. I felt like I was falling from the sky. It came with the emotion of falling, yet without being hurt or stopped. When I began to wake up, I started hearing this melody. So I was like “okay it’s time to start writing this morning.” I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away, and its legendary composer, Joe Hisaishi. What’s weird is that this experience was just like the opening of The Wind Rises, (also a Ghibli film) where the young boy with dreams of creating the world’s best airplanes, finds himself dropping from a dream.
Arranged and recorded with my friend Karl Lungmus.
