In my spare time I enjoy keeping up with and listening to new and old film scores, and I've been posting some favorites and some mixes over at Cinema Sound, culminating in a two-part mix of 2011 film music. Part One is mostly ambient/electronic, to be enjoyed at night on a drive or while working or relaxing. Part Two is mostly orchestral in nature. Both are continuous mixes lasting about an hour each. If you're a Tumblr user, follow Cinema Sound for more updates and a monthly mix/podcast.
Here's my theatrical poster for ELENA, coming this year from Zeitgeist Films. From Andrey Zyvagintsev, the Russian director of THE RETURN, ELENA won the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival's Un Certain Regard and is a fantastic and beautiful thriller. Coming atcha at Sundance, and you can watch the trailer here.
Thanks to Zeitgeist Films for asking me to work on this project, and stay tuned for news on a limited edition screenprint version of this, coming soon.
