AC/BC - Collaborated with my friend and next door neighbor Alessandro Cortini (ex-Nine Inch Nails) on the score for BURN, a documentary on Detroit Fire Fighters. We had about 10 days to score and used a combination of his Buchla synths , low fi guitars and a host of computer / software voodoo. We had such a good time we're currently looking for more opportunities to collaborate together.
