Originally released in 1988, Young Guns is an action-packed western about Billy the Kid (Emilio Estevez) and the Regulators (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Phillips, Dermot Mulroney and Casey Siemaszko) exacting revenge upon the Santa Fe Ring during the Lincoln County War in 1878.

Composed by Anthony Marinelli & Brian Banks, the Young Guns score brilliantly embodies the off-kilter, emotionally unstable characteristics of Billy the Kid, both the man and the myth. It is epic and powerful, but equally haunting with an underlying melancholy tone.

Mastered from the original recordings and pressed on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl. LP cover in smooth matte finish, with a full-color liner note insert from Mr. Marinelli. Also to be released digitally on iTunes, Amazon and other platforms.

This is a must-have for soundtrack and music lovers alike. Regulators, mount up!

Altergeist

It’s that time of year.

Here’s a new soundtrack for a Halloween scare.

 
 

Supernatural Thriller | Suspense | Horror

“Are you afraid? That's what they like.”

Based on True Events:
ALTERGEIST portrays King’s Ransom Winery as one of the most haunted places in North America. Gruesome suicides and murders, suspicious fires, and strange otherworldly phenomena appear with disturbing frequency throughout the history of the estate. Perhaps more disturbing, however, is the fact that these are all based on true events.

In the late 1800s, a woman took her own life in the attic of the historic Korbel House (real world Korbel Champagne Cellars in Guerneville, California), which served as the set for the old Till family homestead in ALTERGEIST. Having scrawled mad writings across the walls of the attic, this formerly reserved cook’s wife was clearly struggling against dark forces she could not understand. In the end she turned to suicide as the only means of escape.

Grounds keepers at Korbel have experienced strange happenings in and around this house, and some refuse to approach it at night. Our cast and crew also felt the presence of spirits from the winery’s past, both in the house and elsewhere on the grounds.

The white lady of the Korbel house, strange orbs of light that move through the redwood forests at night, and stories of other tragic deaths in the area all served as inspiration for the twisted history of King’s Ransom Winery in ALTERGEIST.

“If you burn for a ghost story with an extraterrestrial twist, consider your cinematic thirst quenched…. ALTERGEIST bravely attempts to mesh these two themes into one film, creating both an ambiguous, creepy and rather enjoyable paranormal matrimony.…”

Academy Award Winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock Narrate RIVER OF GOLD

 
 
 

SYNOPSIS:

River of Gold

Narrated by Academy Award winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock, RIVER OF GOLD is the disturbing account of a clandestine journey bearing witness to the apocalyptic destruction of the rainforest in the pursuit of illegally mined gold. 

The film was indeed very difficult and dangerous to make.  The stakes were high and filming illegal mines is not welcomed. 

Moments of the shoot were thick with tension;  skirting danger, not knowing if this mission could be completed successfully and safely. But thanks to a courageous and talented crew, they came home with 26 hours of horrible, poignant, yet beautiful imagery for the world to see. Miners rush to the Amazon to scrape together enough money to start a business or to feed their family while disregarding the catastrophic consequences to their health and homeland.  You can now witness these young men standing in barrels laden with mercury, child prostitution, narcotics, slavery, organized crime and the majestic trees once filled with the joyous songs of birds now turning into desolate and toxic soil all gone in the quest for gold.

--

So many people comment on the music!  I've not had this before in such numbers and consistency.  And that's because, simply, the music is perfect: it fits with the story, it's subtle at all times but powerful when it needs to be.
There is no question but that the film is largely the success that it is because of the wonderful score.  I can't thank you enough for your talent and generosity.  Can't wait for the next opportunity.

The trios emotionally charged arrangements add fire, heart and soul to some of the world’s greatest songs.

Asdru is the co-founder of the 3-time Grammy Award-winning multi-cultural, multi-genre band Ozomatli, which for the past 20 years, has symbolized the emerging multicultural nature of Los Angeles.  Having toured the globe with his band Ozomatli, Asdru is also currently performing his collaborative project ‘Abstrakto’ with musician and producer Balthazar Getty.

Asdru & Anthony Present Music for Latino Media and Perform

 

The duo presented their latest ad music reel to agency heads, talked about how they’ve create multi cultural music for films and Grammy winning albums followed bya power point presentation titled “Taking the Mystery out of the Music Process”.  They discussed many practical solutions to enhance the typical creative process, to keep it constantly collaborative, energizing and that prevent communication breakdown.
Later, they set up at the “Agency Stairwell” to perform an electronic set with drummer Alex “Gonzo” Gonzales for the entire agency. The playing continued until well after closing time.


 
 

Asdru & Anthony
Asdru Sierra and Anthony Marinelli have joined forces to offer their diverse blend of musical styles and experience  to Spanish language projects.  The two composers and songwriters have collaborated on feature films, commercials, and song-writing since first meeting in 2006 to collaborate on a remix album with the trumpet and music label legend Herb Alpert. Since then, they have performed as a duo and as Trio Retro with Cindy Gomez, the Grammy Museum and at NASA with 3-time Grammy Award-winning multi-cultural, multi-genre band Ozomatli which Asdru is the founding member. Together, they have created a melodic world music sound that incorporates Hip Hop, DJ Party Mix, ethnic, and electronica with a real touch of Latin. They effortlessly collaborate with today’s great Latin artists and have a relentless drive to find the right music for any project.


Grupo Gallegos
Owner and visionary, John Gallegos, compares his team to the big cats at a zoo: “Without breathing room and space to roam, their natural talents are unable to reach full potential.” As a result, the atmosphere created at Grupo Gallegos is one liberated from the more traditional stiff business environment, but instead exhibits a casual air, with a corresponding casual dress code. The result: energy is instead spent on innovation, which has made Grupo Gallegos the most rewarded advertising agency for the Hispanic market and a recession success story. The Hispanic market is the fastest growing consumer market in the US, placing Grupo Gallegos at the forefront of a competitive new advertising challenge.

SHOOT Magazine: Music From The Start - by Anthony Marinelli

This article was originally featured on page 3 of  SHOOT Magazine and online here.

Anthony Marinelli

Music is considered a vital element when married with picture, but is usually left to the end of the production schedule. The day is here where technology allows us to create the story, the picture edit, visual effects, sound effects and music at the same time. What are we waiting for?

While the producer is telling composers it’s too early to be thinking about music, the film editor has already picked a piece of music and presented it with picture. Someone was thinking about music from the start, it just wasn’t a composer. This decision puts a lot of extra burden on the final music. Most editors prefer cutting to music as it helps create atmosphere, determines pace, and motivates cutting/extending a scene, etc.

The film editor, by default, is often the sole decider of the temp music. This creates a ripple effect as the project progresses. “Just find something to cut to” becomes “everybody loves the temp music.” The editor, by default, is dictating the direction of the music.  Any other music created later is a replacement by definition.

A composer’s job is to create the best option for the picture (not just beat the temp). “Temping” without a composer’s input does not make this easy. Human beings get attached to things, especially when they’re working well. “Temp Love” however, may be blocking a better idea.

Agencies may turn this “replacement process” into a competition amongst composers, music houses and libraries to beat the temp. Agencies feel like they need a lot of choices, but that doesn’t allow for direct collaboration with the composer of that music.

A worse case scenario is hiring a composer that must spend valuable time reacting to the temp and navigating around complications like potential copyright infringement.

An Alternative:
- Decide on tempo and tone utilizing the knowledge of a composer along with the editor and creative team.

- Sort through temp music via streaming services or iPods for inspiration when editing, but quickly leave this dangerous territory

- Just as an editor creates rough edits that lead to a final approved edit, composers can organically create rough original tracks during the editing process that lead to the final music version.

- Composers can set up a laptop and MIDI controller near the editor to create an original temp score. This way the edit and music can be updated together.

- The entire creative team can be in constant dialogue through this type of proximity to react to developing ideas.

It’s time for agencies to think music from the start.
