Prebirth – The Eternal War

In summer I scored the soundtrack to Prebirth – The Eternal War,
an otherworldly thriller directed by Josh Jackson & Brian M. Tang about angels and demons battling over unborn souls.

Following in depth discussions with the director, I began by scoring a few musical themes for the characters, motifs that supported their emotional state, then combined it with a sound palette that reinforced the connection between the two worlds. I used a fair amount of bespoke sound design; choir manipulation, drum builds, some electric guitar (courtesy of Patrick O.Beck), to pack a punch at certain key points, remaining in close contact with the directors throughout to ensure my score supported their creative vision and met their expectations.

The score was mixed and mastered at Studio Kroess, Vienna by Kurt Richter (Sound Distillery).

‘Leben’

I’m very pleased to learn that the prize winning short film, ‘Leben – Touching Life’ has been very well received on the international film festival circuit, having been shown at twenty six festivals around the world, from the UK to Chile, Romania to Spain. Together with Patrick O. Beck, we composed and produced the soundtrack for the film in a little under a week, and my endless thanks go to our band, ‘Die Digitale Immigranten’ who so marvelously performed the soundtrack under extreme pressure (from me, on industrial strength painkillers as I had just had my wisdom teeth removed).
