ORCHESTRATIONEWS

Is that a word? Well it should be!

Strad arranges for the Academy Awards! Watch the show and listen for the big Cirque du Soliel number.

Killer score on The Smurfs by Heitor Pereira. Great big box office to go with it too - way to go Heitor!

A 54 piece string section and 15 brass made Your Highness big fun to work on. Steve Jablonsky's ectectic and esoteric score gave me a chance to do a little aleatoric writing. The brass players definitely had fun!

Three movies opened summer 2010- Prince of Persia: "The Sands of Time", with great music by Harry Gregson-Williams. A Nightmare on Elm Street with scary, scary sounds from Steve Jablonsky, and Shrek Forever After, another fantastic Harry score.

Wolverine
opened and killed! Now at $373 million worldwide. Yikes! Harry did it again with brilliant and emotional music. Orchestrations by Geoff,
Ladd McIntosh., and Jennifer Hammond.

Beverly Hill Chihuahua has become the designated baby sitter for many families, graced by an emotional and highly rhythmic score from Heitor Pereira.
Geoff orchestrated with Ladd.

Prince Caspian with brilliant music from composer Harry Gregson-Williams did well at the box office and is probably entertaining many a child at home as well.

Geoff worked on The Simpsons Movie for composer Hans Zimmer, and old friend Bruce Fowler
who was the lead orchestrator.

Desperate Housewives got a bit of
orchestration help from yours truly.

Shrek The Third , The Number 23 and Flushed Away
are all available on DVD.
Blood and Wine plays on cable.
