Raid Score vs. Soundtrack

February 15, 2012

The Raid is coming to theaters soon.  Almost all of the music is instrumental–doing anything with vocals seemed to take away from the movie.  I think it ended up being 50+ minutes of score.

 

But at the end of the film, I found room for two songs with vocals.  I didn’t want to do sing or rap.  I decided to call on some friends.

The Raid Sundance Wrap-Up

January 24, 2012

Had a great time at Sundance this past weekend.  This was the premiere of the film with the new score.  All the award-winning showings of the movie up to this point have been with the previous score, and the reviews have been amazing…so I was a bit nervous to see how critics reacted to it with the new music.  Needless to say, I was relieved to see that people still liked it, some saying they even liked it more with the new music.

I went to the premiere with an old friend, Ken Block.  Most of you probably know him from this.  Ken started DC shoes back in the day, and is a pretty inspirational and fun dude.

With the premiere over, and a change to relax, we got together with some mutual friends to hang.  Met Steve Berra.  Awesome dude, I could have talked to him for hours.


Did a little press too, with the director (Gareth Evans) and my scoring partner (Joe Trapanese).  Great guys.

Wrapped up the weekend with a party for The Raid, and a set by Deadmau5.

All in all, a great trip.  Lots of awesome reviews about the film and the new score.  Here’s a new (super bloody) taste of what you’re in store for when the movie comes out in a couple months…

The Raid US Debut: Sundance Film Festival

December 1, 2011

Looks like more good news for The Raid.  The film will be making its US debut, with my score, at the Sundance Film Festival as part of the Spotlight section.  Sundance doesn’t usually feature action films, so it’s very cool that this movie made it in.

For those of you wondering when you’ll be able to see the film, we finally have an answer.  Sony Pictures Classics will be releasing the film in spring of 2012.
