Wonder Showzen (2006)
I scored an episode of the MTV2 show Wonder Showzen, which you can buy on iTunes or on DVD. I had a great time writing it; the people who make that show are some of the smartest people around. The premise of the episode that I scored (A Clarence Special Report: Compelling Television) is that this demented puppet, Clarence (at left), asks people sitting on park benches what they think of TV, and then he demands that they, in turn, “make good TV.” The results are scored. Sometimes this ended up demanding outrageous miniatures, and sometimes it ended up secretly heartbreaking. The score is for chamber orchestra, and was recorded by Dan Bora at the Looking Glass Studios in April, 2006.

I just found this out on the Wonder Showzed Season Two DVD: There’s an alternate audio track to the Compelling TV episode in which you get to hear the score minus the dialogue. Just to let you know.
