Dear Listener, Our craft is so visual and each film, too unique to anticipate a perfect musical compliment before actually watching edited picture but please enjoy this selection of music from previous movies I’ve worked on. These pieces center around emotions of tension, suspense, gore, character development and thematic development but, if there’s more you’d like to hear, please let me know. I’d love to explore further with you.
– Colin
