Films / New Record - 4/8/09

On Sunday night we went to the premiere of Alkinos Tsimilidos' new film Blind Company, to which I and my Paris-based vibraphonist- extraordinaire-friend and 11th arrondissement cohort Micheal Emenau penned the score.  It screened to a full house as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival and included an introduction by Alkinos and Colin Friels (who plays the lead Geoff Brewster).  It goes to Montreal next.

Here's the poster:



In other film news Sarah Watts' new film My Year Without Sex is in the theatres here and getting lots of attention and good reviews etc.  Apart from terrific performances across the entire cast it features four Bombazine Black songs, three from Here Their Dreams and one little specifically-written piece that I called 'Give A Little Beat'.
Session times and soundtrack info can be found at the official site here and here's a look at the poster:


Apart from gallivanting 'round town watching movies we have also been putting the final touches to the follow up to Here Their Dreams. The basic tracking was done between Sunset Studios in LA, Headgap Studios in Thornbury and Michael Emenau's bunker in Cité Joly in Paris with a band that includes Danny Tulen and Daryl Bradie from Gersey, Miles Browne from Art of Fighting, Taylor Holland from Texan rockers Monroe Mustang and actress/writer/musician Jayne Tuttle.

It will now be mixed by Tim Whitten who some of you will know from such Gersey records as
Hope Springs, Storms Dressed As Stars and No Satellites.  So far I'm very very happy with how it sounds, can't wait for you all to hear it.  More news on release dates and all that soon.  
In the meantime here's a photo of Headgap engineer Sloth and I deep in contemplation mode..
