lunaunit asked: Hey dear, hope all is well with you. I just wanted to thank you for posting my second voicemail, the score is beautiful. It's so surreal to know that my literal voice has reached so many people. Within only 12 hours, it has almost 1,000 plays, and that's so powerful. It's such an honor to part of your project. Thank you.

Anonymous asked: So... I called a couple times yesterday... I was cut off... Yeah, I felt really bad.... Yeah....

I’m sorry! My voicemail inbox doesn’t let callers go over three minutes per message. Feel free to call in as much as you need.

Video

I just received one the most flattering SoundCloud comments about my music, ever:

Pause this music, go to youtube.com/watch?v=pGWU4QhJ4L8&feature=plcp turn the music from youtube off and start video from youtube and this song at the same time, watch the video while u listening this.:)

They linked to that pinnacle scene in “American Beauty” where they’re watching the video of a bag floating in the wind, talking about all the beauty in the world. Thomas Newman wrote the gorgeous soundtrack behind the film and has long stood as one of my film score composer heroes. It’s very flattering to be compared to him.

onehelloworld:

Alone But Not Lonely

“I think that loneliness is a term that’s misconceived by everybody. There’s two different things: there’s being alone and there’s being lonely. I’ve learned loneliness is only something you invite when you’re by yourself. And I can be by myself and be completely happy.”

I very much enjoy my solitary time, too. Thanks for calling.

the-last-frontier asked: Do you listen to the voicemails as the person is saying it?

Not as the person is saying it, no.
