Evil Dead


OCT. 25-Nov. 2   |   Starlight Theater

Music Director, Orchestrator, Composer, Keyboard, Synth Programmer


I orchestrated from scratch the score for "Evil Dead: the Musical" - the books provided were a mess, with missing music and hundreds of errors; the re-orchestrated score expanded to include a bass player, as well as a fair amount of synth programming. It was especially fun to include quotes from various famous horror movie & TV scores - including "Halloween", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "The Grudge", and of course a quote from the original 1981 "Evil Dead" film score. Great band and talented cast all around.
