XANDERSCORES.COM – Film and Media Music Online Composition
Able Danger is a US conspiracy thriller/drama starring Elina Löwensohn and Adam Nee. Tom Flynn is a young journalist who gets himself in deep trouble by uncovering secrets behind 9/11 and falling for a devious woman. The movie premiered in 2008. Both movie and score make use of film noir stylistics and contemporary elements.
I composed and produced the score within 2 weeks’ time. You can watch the movie with my complete music score (playing a bit louder than in the final version) on YouTube.
The music for Able Danger is inspired by Jerry Goldsmith and Bernard Herrmann, since the director primarily hired me to provide the “old-school symphonic, Herrmann-like” parts of the score. (Interestingly enough, it was my pitch for the more contemporary Airport Surveillance cue that got me the job.)
