Dear Mr. Watterson (Original Film Score) Available Now Online!

 

We Were Pirates Dear Mr. Watterson Film Score

Hi friends,

Good news! The soundtrack for the film I’ve been working on  came out today. The movie is called “Dear Mr. Watterson” and it is a documentary about the cultural impact of the comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes”, and its creator, Bill Watterson.

You can pick up a copy of the original film score on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or Bandcamp.

I’ve been working on the music on and off since Summer of 2012 and I’m really proud of how everything turned out. The soundtrack includes 14 original, instrumental songs from the film and I threw in 3 bonus tracks: an alternate version of one of the songs and a vocal and instrumental version of “Don’t Forget”. Which is an old We Were Pirates song from “Cutting Ties” that also plays in the movie.

The film itself has its festival premiere tonight at Cleveland Film Festival and is already getting great reviews. I got a chance to see it at the L.A. premiere a few weeks ago. I realize I’m not exactly unbiased, but, I loved it. I think they did an amazing job capturing what makes Calvin & Hobbes continue to have such an impact. As a big fan of the strip, it was a real honor to have been able to contribute the music for the film. I’ll keep you posted on festival showings and when the DVDs becomes available to the public. In the meantime, enjoy the soundtrack!

Cheers!
