Some Fish Can Fly
"Some Fish Can Fly" won rave reviews from NBC –TV's veteran film critic Jeffrey Lyons. The film showcases a traditional Irish and modern, quirky, comedic score.
Using veteran musicians, we incorporated pennywhistles, Irish fiddle, accordion, guitar, piano and strings to create a stylistically accurate and genuine sound. Producer Joe Zock gushed, "Your music gave our movie a soul". Director Robert Pappas enthusiastically added, "You were brilliant!"
*Best Internationally Inspired Song at the Garden State Film Festival
"Natural Forces" is a post-apocalyptic story which takes place in the future. Ed Kessel was inspired to create a whole new genre of music.
Using authentic Ancient Mayan instruments, Ed and writing partner, Marc Hoffman, incorporated conch shells, African drums, human harmonics, wooden trumpets, renaissance flutes and live strings combined with synthesized sounds. The result added a new dimension to the film, heightening its dramatic intensity and realism.
