Another “Gods Behaving Badly" Session

I had another studio session today with film composer Christopher Young. It was for more music for the film Gods Behaving Badly.

The screenplay was based on a best-selling novel by Marie Phillips. The film features a cast full of stars (including Christopher Walken, John Turturro, Sharon Stone, Rosie Perez, Alicia Silverstone & Ebon Moss-Bachrach). It has gorgeous cinematography and a stunning score (by Mr. Young); however, for whatever reason, it absolutely tanked. It’s not even going to receive theatrical distribution but is going straight to DVD and video-on-demand.

But not all is lost, music-wise: Because Mr. Young wrote such a beautiful score, the soundtrack is going to be released on audio CD by Varèse Sarabande. The session I played for today was for additional music that he wrote but ultimately didn’t record for the film.

He’s a brilliant musician and a fascinating person who has an uncanny knack for weaving together the sounds of many seemingly disparate instruments into a jaw-droppingly beautiful sonic tapestry. It’s always a great pleasure to work with him. (This was my third session with him.)
