Back in early 2009 I signed on to work on some portions of a film called HOLY ROLLERS. It was starring a little known actor named Jesse Eisenberg. Over the past year, Adventureland and Zombieland happened. This elevated his profile quite a bit, not to mention showing some great acting range. The basic theme of the movie is blind faith and Jesse’s character struggles quite a bit with it. All the while growing up and discovering the world outside of his small Hassidic community. The music I wrote for the film was mostly representative of that outside world. It’s representative of everything his community frowned upon.
This song was written for a very specific scene, a turning point, a moment of great excitement and enlightenment.
I really hope you enjoy it.
This single also includes remixes by my good friends Gigamesh, True Blue and Blue Satellite. It’s generally me doing the remixing and it was great to be on the other side and have somebody alter one of my own songs. I loved what they did and they all had a unique take on the song.
Thanks to the always amazing Liset Alea, the director Kevin Asch, composer MJ Mynarski. It was awesome working together.
