Batman – The Simulator Ride

This score was written to accompany the motion simulator ride currently running at Six Flags’ MovieWorld Theme Parks in Madrid and Australia.  The score needed to seamlessly integrate the theme from the 1989 film with new themes which I wrote for Joker, Catwoman and Mr. Freeze.

I was excited to compose the score for Forbidden Warrior – the film embraced a very grandiose and mythical style, visually, so a lush, heavily-thematic score was fitting; and that’s just indulgent fun for any composer.  We utilized a large orchestra and recorded on the legendary Todd-AO scoring stage with Academy-Award-Winning engineer Shawn Murphy at the console.

The two tracks featured here give a sense of the score in essence.  More previews, and the album itself, are now available on iTunes!

Last year I was asked to compose the score for a beautiful and touching short documentary entitled, “A Journey with Purpose” which told the tale of a Holocaust survivor who returns to Auschwitz with his grandson to confront his demons, make peace with his memories, and, at long last, say Kaddish – the prayer for the dead – for family and friends long gone.

Here are a few excerpts from the score.

I was recently commissioned to score a new museum exhibit featuring the amazing accomplishments of NASA during the 20th century called NASA – A Human Adventure.  The music would underscore the exhibit narration, as visitors move from gallery to gallery.  While it was important for each gallery to have its own style and flavor, I chose to unite all the pieces under a very “Americana” sounding banner, with nods to works of American composers like Aaron Copland, who helped define that sound for all of us.  The exhibit features stunning and wonderfully-crafted models built by White Room Artifacts – an elite model shop founded by former ILM model maker Don Bies, who frequently collaborates with the most famous and well-respected model makers in film history – many of the original crew for such pioneering films as Star Wars.
