I was finally able to see the feature documentary Blood Brother, a film that uses several pieces from my album, Sounds for a Photograph and Low in the Sky’s album William. The movie had just taken the top honors at Sundance, glowing reviews abounded and while I tried not to, I went in with high expectations. They were met. Blood Brother is a beautiful film about love. The best film about love I can think of. I am still processing it. After the film, I was lucky enough to hang out with Danny and Steve, the producer and director.. good people who dedicated several years of their lives to the film. It was a great honor and I will never forget it.
Regarding the music and sound of the film: Composer Keith Kenniff’s always gorgeous work drives and punctuates many key moments. Danny Bracken, A.J Hochholter and Wytold also contributed great pieces to the film and everything was expertly placed and used effectively. Defacto Sound pulled everything together nicely on the sfx and mix.
Thank you to my good friend Charlie Wagers for pointing Danny to my work. I am grateful to have been able to contribute to something so beautiful. Good people. – jm
