Joyful Noise

Working on the new movie Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise, a musical film starring Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah, has just been released, and I had the chance to work on the music for the film in a variety of behind-the-scenes aspects, including preproduction, keyboard work, drum programming, horn arranging, engineering, and assisting the composer for the movie, Mervyn Warren.

From the IMDB entry: “Joyful Noise is the story of a small town choir out to win a national competition despite overwhelming odds. A story of faith and determination by the choir leaders (Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton) and the young talent who give their all to win God’s praise and beat the competition for the grand prize.”

The soundtrack includes gospel classics, modern classics, and new original songs written by Mervyn Warren, and Dolly Parton. An all-star roster of players graced the recordings, including Paul Jackson Jr, the Jerry Hey horns, Reggie Hamilton, Kirk Franklin, as well as Dolly and Queen themselves.

If anyone's going to invent a flux capacitor, it won't be Elon Musk; it'll be Denis Goekdag from @zynaptiq. https://t.co/tjmpTWd5dQ daviddas photo

New video: my express video manual and thoughts on 8Dio's Deep House Vol. 2 sample library for Kontakt. I'm doing these for myself to remember how the products work; hopefully they're a help to others too. https://t.co/iI7s3OR4Rg
