"Celestial Orientation", a Sci Fi Feature Film I scored and wrote and produced an original song for , selected at South America Awards

CO SOUTH AMERICA AWARDS


Here's a recap of  1 year of INDUBBIO and of the score.
A big shout out goes to the team of  
"In Dubbio".
With more than 40 between awards and nominations all around the world (a few for my original music and sounds as well), the film keeps telling its powerful story of violence and keeps  gaining recognition.
"In Dubbio" is a film with a profound meaning  and deep psychological analysis, the kind of film I love to score.
Thank you all, team!

“Once Upon A Time”
Original orchestral piece I recorded remotely from Los Angeles with Budapest Scoring.
The piece is dedicated to the places in the world, in our mind, in our heart where we find refuge during difficult times… like these past  2 years.

CELESTIAL ORIENTATION  OST OUT!

If you are looking for some "feel good" , interesting new music, then "CELESTIAL ORIENTATION" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the perfect album!
Enjoy this unique, quirky and captivating score I created for the Sci-Fi Comedy "Celestial Orientation" written by Aaron Beal and directed by Kevin Bible.
The score features orchestral music , the classical Theremin, my vocals, an ebow played guitar, synths and even a stainless salad bowl... all recorded and processed for you to enjoy the surreal and funny world of Dr. Donovan Mulray!
In this video you'll get a taste of the music and will also find out more about those custom sounds and themes I created :)
