Carter Burwell will work with Bill Condon on the movie “Mr. Holmes”. Then “Anomalisa” in December and the movie “Legend” in February at Abbey Road.
“Carol” is mixed with Mike Farrow doing an incredible job of engineering the recording and mixing at The Body, NYC. We revisit “Anomalisa” in November as Carter Burwell will score an animated film of the theater piece. Any exciting proposition.
I did a gig with Dan Yolen and Bruce Barker over summer. True joy for me to climb on the drum throne and connect to a magical mystery tour of song selections by Dan. Bruce turned out some licks that reminded me of the great blues slide players and Dan as usual finds the telling hook in a song that makes for a deep communication within the band.
Next year with Burwell a movie about the Kray Bros. and then a Coen Bros. movie.
Assisted Carter Burwell on HBO project “Olive Kitteridge” and commencing to setup studio for “Carol”.
A subjective documentary film that explores the morality of Darwin’s natural selection and the rise of capital as a moral entity. An overlooked topic. Currently in post production.
In discussion with composer regarding score for Showtime series titled “The Affair”. Looks like this will happen. Update – did participate on this project for the pilot episode.
Setting up Carter Burwell’s project the HBO produced “Olive Kitteridge”. Later in the year for Burwell there’s also a film by Todd Haynes (“Carol”) which will probably record in late summer or fall of 2014, not sure where. And there’s also a Bill Condon film (“A Slight Trick of the Mind”) that would likely record in September. It is also with sadness that I mention the passing of my friend and mentor John Ewbank.
