I once worked in a bookstore. Now, I'm speaking at one. No, the giant tell-all novel isn't on the shelves yet, but someone else's is (sort of), and I'm helping out a few film composers he employs to publicly parse out their thoughts on what they do. Curious? Read the following press release which has, I'm told, made its way around the Internet. And come by to say hello -- or watch me sweat at the prospect of speaking in public.
"Commotion Records to host ecclectic evening at Barnes and Nobles in Los Angeles"
Commotion Records Night at Barnes & Noble
The Grove @ Farmer’s Market
Tuesday, June 21
7pm to 9pm

The evening will feature a panel discussion of the role that music plays in independent film moderated by journalist Adam Baer...
Panelists will include Harold Budd (composer, "Mysterious Skin"), Rolfe Kent (composer, "Sideways", "Mean Girls, "About Schmidt"), Nathan Larsen (composer, "Boys Don’t Cry", "Palindrome", "The Woodsman") and Tracy McKnight (film supervisor for over 70 independent films and co-founder of Commotion Records).
The evening will also showcase a rare musical performance by Nathan Larsen who was a member of the D.C.art-punk band Shudder to Think. And, as a finishing touch, former CBS/Sony CEO and Commotion Records co-founder and CEO Walter Yetnikoff will read excerpts from his critically acclaimed memoir HOWLING AT THE MOON.
