:: For Your Consideration

So I wonít win anything but I did submit to the Oscars, it was fun and odd to be part of that whole craziness. A composer has to submit him/herself, the studio canít do it, the agents canít do it. Iím not sure whoís allowed to submit, I got an email from The Academy reminding me. And then, Warner is sending me out in their ďmusic packĒ, their promo mailer to the members of The Academy who vote on the music nominations. That process was all under a lengthy and convoluted set of rules that all referred to other rules. Bottom line was, no packaging, no graphics, nothing except for a CD with the music listed on the CD itself, text to be approved by The Academy. The phrase that is everywhere, and is allowed on the CDs, is ďFor Your ConsiderationĒ. Donít know that many people are going to actually be considering my score, but it was an adventure none-the-less.

:: Graham Scoring Austin/Denmark Film Iíll Come Running

Filmed half in Austin and half in Denmark, I'll Come Running is a new feature film by director Spencer Parson, produced by the team that did Gretchen and Old Joy. There is a bunch of pop music from Austin and Denmark but the rest of the music will be Graham's original score. The temp track is Tangerine Dream's score to Risky Business, which itself was based on a Steve Reich piece, so the score should be fun. Here's the plot summary from IMDB: A young Danish man traveling through Texas hooks up with an Austin girl, and even though they're not planning to see each other again, tragic circumstances lead her to his doorstep in Denmark. Graham will finish the score this January.

:: Sally Boy

New feature film directed by Sean Allen. Set and Shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Graham recently completed the score to "Sally Boy", a new feature film set and shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Prominently featuring Austin blues icon Guy Forsyth on steel string acoustic and resonator guitar, the music is intimate and minimalist. Guy and Graham have discussed the possibility of continuing the recording sessions at some point, with a full length album in mind.

Faust, January 2002

"Faust last night was marvelous. The live score was intense and perfect in tone and timing, and so loud in the small confines of the Alamo theater that it immersed me completely in sound. The film itself was a swirl of emotion and imagery, archetypes of good and evil struggling in a flickering black and white world of fog and shadow punctuated by stabs and glows of light. For about the first twenty minutes of the film, these were two wonderful but separate experiences. Then, as the Devil transported a now-youthful Faust to the palace of the most beautiful princess in Italy, to tempt him with the pleasures of the flesh in order to capture his soul, the twin experiences of image and sound suddenly fused into one. The rest of the evening I was completely riveted, swallowed up by the world created by the artistic talents of people in 1926 and 2001, working together to create a unique, once-in-a-lifetime film experience." --Dublog
