Well I certainly owe this site an update!

The past few months have been incredibly exciting, with lots of music being made and success for many projects.  Nadav Kurtz’s standout short film PARAÌSO peaked at the festival circuit with an appearance at Sundance 2013.  It was also short-listed for an Academy Award nomination!

Speaking of the Academy Awards, I am currently scoring MAD AS HELL: THE RISE OF THE YOUNG TURKS, a feature documentary by director Andrew Napier.  Andrew produced this year’s Oscar-winning live action short film CURFEW.

Also up next is a feature Romantic Comedy and could there be more horror music on the horizon? More details are coming so stay tuned…

thepact_ostHere’s a sampling of the critical response:

Jorn Tillnes, “It’s really something special we have here and if the film is just as scary as the score, then I’m not sure my heart could take it.”

John Mansell, “I was quite taken aback at the inventiveness and originality of this score… it is a superior, intelligent and well written score that I know will delight and maybe even frighten many a collector of quality film music.”

Randall Larson, Soundtrax: “Landa creates a mesmerizing spectrum of sound that immerses the listener in its aural depths.”

From Screamworks Records:

…one of the most interesting genre scores we have come across recently, written for a small chamber orchestra and soloists. Beautiful melodic writing for piano and solo violin provides an elegant and emotional contrast to the more experimental parts of the score. The stand-out cue ‘Apparitions’ offers a lot of unusual instrumental techniques and is a treat for the fan of the avant-garde.

THE PACT is now in limited release in the US and available on iTunes and On Demand.
