A Preview of Coming Attractions

A Preview of Coming Attractions published on 8 Comments on A Preview of Coming Attractions

My guitar and Echoplex work appears on the scores to two different films opening this fall:

Two For The Money – Music composed by Christophe Beck. Starring Al Pacino, Matthew McConaughey, Rene Russo, Armand Assante, Jeremy Piven. Directed by D.J. Caruso. Opening October 7, 2005.

Derailed – Music composed by Edward Shearmur. Starring Clive Owen, Jennifer Aniston, Vincent Cassel, Melissa George, RZA (yes, that RZA). Directed by Mikael Håfström. Opening November 11, 2005.

How unbelievably lucky am I to have these as my very first soundtrack gigs?

Many more details to come…


Re: 2 4 Tha Money

Hi John,

I saw the trailer for Two For The Money a couple of weeks ago, and didn’t recognize any of the music on the trailer. It didn’t sound very much like Christophe Beck’s score at all, so my guess is that little, if any of it, actually appears in the film.

I didn’t get the call for Derailed until after I last saw you, so it wasn’t even on my radar until late summer. One of the engineers on Two For The Money also worked on Derailed, and brought me to Edward Shearmur’s attention. Yes, I won the lottery this year! (The trailer for Derailed doesn’t have any of my work, either, though I don’t know how much of it comes from Shearmur’s score.)

Re: 2 4 Tha Money

Um… there never was any discouragement here – I’ve heard enough of each score, during the numerous sessions I did for each film, to already know that I’m well present and accounted for on the soundtracks.

But it’s very kind of you to fill me in on the details of the film music world! 🙂
