As someone who popped out of the womb playing the piano, I've always said I pretty much didn't have a choice about whether I played or not. That said I've only recently fully appreciated the work that my family and friends have put into my ability. My grandmother was a music and voice teacher and always supported all of our talents in music and art. She was the one who really gave me the first opportunity to work with the amazing teacher I had.

One of the biggest difficulties of being a self employed artist is filling in all the empty spaces. Four months after one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced things haven't been exactly wall to wall busy, but moving forward none the less. Last week for instance I had three projects at once and then the dead air started. I really shouldn't complain about it since everyone I know is looking for some "dead air", but for me I always feel like I need to do more. When things are so diversified it's really hard for me to figure out which way to turn. For weeks it was my web site, which of course still isn't exactly complete. It seems like I'm forever working on new content and adding license music to try to maximized every bit of sound I create.

I realized the other day that I'm going to have to get used to it. Unless I get the coveted weekly T.V. series... in which case this discussion will be void, I know that working in film is a constant in and out of projects. I just finished a trailer for an incredible documentary I'm set to start over the summer, so I'm sure I'll be lamenting all of this free time I had, which is now. I always remind myself of the saying that the more you work, the more you work. Usually getting the machine moving is the hard part and if everything goes as planed the downhill momentum starts to take hold.

Every job has its plus's and negatives. Managing the unknown is one of them for composers, well for this composer. When the next project comes you know you're going to be engrossed for weeks if not months. And when you come out the other side there's a realization that you just missed huge chunks of space in the outside world. The irony is that when you're present in those chunks of space sometimes it's easy to get lost in the silence. There's so much to be done that you don't know where to start and sometimes never do. When you have a deadline either for the beginning of a project or the end staring you down the face, all of a sudden things become crystal clear. Like a slow motion cue in an action film when the hero literally dodges a bullet with catlike reflex's. In the mean time, I'm a little more like a mental patient from the 60's with a lobotomy.

It sure seems like the people who have no time to get things done get the most done. So maybe that's the answer to it all. If you can find a way to keep yourself swinging from one project to the next, like Tarzan swinging through the jungle, just don't forget to grab a vine for yourself once in a while. But if you ever stop moving then you're just dangling in the air... dead in the water, and when the dust settles it's time to figure out how to get to the next vine. Fumbling like a monkey with one hand, swinging little by little, the momentum starts again and off you go with a valiant Tarzan call. How's that for an analogy? I am in the movie business after all... (please don't stop reading, I promise it won't happen again)

For those you who have a constant list of things that need to get checked off in the dead time and who execute those tasks with precision, I say kudos! For those of you like me who do half of everything motivated by feelings and moods, let's stick together and keep focus on the next check point. Because not matter what you're doing the dust always settles somewhere and you'll ask yourself where did all that time go?

I'm not sure if it was the best timing or not, but just a few days after Sundance we went on a true vacation to Costa Rica with some great friends and new experiences. Even though I was relaxed, I found I had all this momentum that made me anxious about taking full advantage of the last crazy week. Most of the people I met were just getting back into the groove of things anyway, or traveling to the next event. So maybe it was just as well in the end.

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a seminar in Hollywood called “The Real Deal” presented by the Hollywood Music In Media Awards. Among many of the aspects covered, and one of the best for me was from 440 Artist Alignment Headed by Amy Houck. 440’s primary business is to help musicians manage and support their exposure on the internet, including social media.

Why the word “depression” isn’t used is beyond me because as far as I can tell the economy and all of us who have to live in it sure are depressed on all fronts. I say that and I’m one of the few fortunate. I’ve heard stories of people who took huge risks during the depression. For instance someone who spent his last few dollars on a Rolls and a driver. When the head of the studio where he worked ran out to get in his own car it had a flat. In that moment with his last dollars spent, his life changed when the studio head offered him the job as a producer. I don’t know how or why those things happen, but they do. And just like in the original depression there are still wealthy people and they are still making movies, and even more so T.V. So, what does it all mean for the people who can’t seem to get the work?

In most business settings there are guides to how you go about building your business. If you want to open a retail spot you advertise on your building, in local print, direct mailing, fliers, stuff like that. If you want to sell a product there are trade shows, distributors, retailers, and sales reps that you can find to expose that product. If you want to be a composer you… well what do you do? I guess you start writing for films. But where do you find the films? And if you do find films, how do you find the ones that have budgets and will be seen by the people who can help you progress? If I had a magic answer for that I would either be a very successful composer or author of the “How To Become A Composer For Dummy’s” books.

In my quest to becoming an every day working film composer I have made a few substantial connections that would normally reap the benefits of networking. In other words, getting work. Although it is not for the lack of trying on either party, it sure seems like the end of 09 and beginning of 2010 has felt the pinch of the faucet turning off.

As a student of films I am generally skeptical about any hype and critics acclaim, billion dollars or not. After spending at least $280 million dollars to create a future world of fantasy, most people might think that’s a little excessive… but then again it was spent by James Cameron. Which brings me to another area of skepticism, a one time success assuming a later success. In other words, just because Mr. Cameron had a passion and focus on Titanic, doesn’t automatically mean that will prove true in his next big project.

NBC… Who’s NBC? Well NBC, currently NBC Universal has been a giant in media in some form for as long as there’s been broadcast media. It is amazing to me how short of a period it has taken to come from black and white tube T.V.’s to fully digital flat screens that hang on your wall. Along with all that technology has come massive changes in how the media gets to your screen.

It has been said that music is 60% of a film. Whether or not that figure is accurate, there is no question that music has always been a huge piece of the film puzzle, and appears to be an ever-changing landscape. There is a part of me that feels like true film composers are a dying art. With apple loops and powerful software at times musicianship has become mechanized, a series of key strokes and quantizing plug ins. Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm supporter of technology, and to be perfectly honest wouldn’t be able to do what I do without the help of that support.

What Is Music To Film?

What is music to film? What is the point and the significance? Where does silence fall into the affect on film, the absence of music? There are large discussions about the anatomy of film and a film score. Music was in film before sound was in film. Before dialog was in film. Music has always been an integral part of the film process and more importantly the result of the director’s vision. It is my mission statement to “service the film”. What do I mean exactly? I mean through the process of your spotting session with a director, it is not only vital to determine where he is headed with the overall feeling of the film but with each cue. Throughout history filmmakers have used music to direct the audience either exactly where the scene is headed, accentuating the feeling of sadness or delight, or steering the audience in the exact opposite direction of what is happening on screen. Often music directs the audience to what’s happening inside the mind of a character, which may be different from what they are physically doing on screen. Many times, one of the more challenging scenes to write for are the ones where a characters emotions change on a dime. For example when the direction of the film appears to being headed in overwhelming delight only to be redirected by ones long lost love being hit by a truck… or whatever, you get the idea.
