Score for motion picture (90′).
For this documentary–directed by Peter Byck–Robert (Hawes) and I were tasked to score a series of short animated videos. The visual and narrative style of the vids reminded me of the old Warner Brothers cartoons; as those Carl Stalling scores were an early source of musical inspiration for me, I was pretty delighted to work in that language for this project—there’s something that’s just so smart and lithe about those old scores. Plus it was rad to do some research into that treasure trove of classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts. Too rich thinking about “Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid” and Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto, Op. 42 premiering in the same year.
