Wall Street: 20th Anniversary Edition Trailer

It’s always a great thrill to compose music for trailers, which require an approach that involves compressing a great deal of movement and musical animation into very specific timeframes to coincide with the video onscreen and to punctuate the motion.

This particular trailer, created for the 20th anniversary edition of the Michael Douglas film Wall Street, utilizes a lot of drums and guitars, and special effects on the guitars. This being a midnight call “we need it done yesterday” job, I ended up playing all the guitars and bass myself, and using Addictive Drums for the drums. Once the musical bed was written, several layers of sound effects were added on top to complete the special sauce that marries the music to the video.

New from me: what is going on with @Adobe, @Dropbox, and the future of online #privacy? It concerns every one of us:

I think it’s safe to say when Instagram tries to launch their nth new feature copied from another rival platform, their chances of success now become 1/n.

An interesting comment in light of the fact that the work of millions of human creators has been vacuumed up by OpenAI without consent or compensation.

Happy birthday to this dude (@aaronscottlazar) who is working on a project of a lifetime in the middle of a battle of a lifetime and is making everyone stronger for it. Thank you for being in my life bro and so glad we get to make some magical music together. @youralsnetwork
