Gary Scores Two New Documentaries
Gary just completed 2 new original music scores for two independent
documentaries—Emmy award-winner Slawomir Grunberg's "Bed and Breakfast
Guestbook—9/11" and Judd Ehrlich's "Mayor of the West Side".
former is a 20 minute conceptual film composed of multiple first-hand
recollections of the 9/11 tragedy, filmed at an upstate New York bed and
breakfast holiday retreat, featuring interviews with a wide assortment of
visitors recounting their impressions, and scored to an eerie oracular
electronic guitar fantasia by Gary.
The latter is a 40 minute
coming-of-age meditation on the life of Mark Puddington, a teenager with
multiple disabilities and a local celebrity in his New York City
neighborhood, and features Gary's original acoustic and electric solo
guitar compositions composed for the documentary. "Mayor of the West
Side", directed by first-time documentary maker Judd Ehrlich, was called
"an extraordinary compelling and deeply moving human drama" by famed
documentary maker Ric Burns ("Jazz", "The Civil War") and
premieres on Saturday April 12th at the BAM Jewish Film Fest (see calendar, and Film
Scores in the Discography section, for more info).
"Bed and Breakfast Guestbook—9/11" will
have its premiere on Monday April 21st at the Bare Bones International
Film Festival, Oklahoma. See Film Scores in Gary's
Discography section for more info.
