To Appomattox

To Appomattox (2013)

The emotional lives of America's Civil War generals, their wives and families - from West Point to Appomattox - against a backdrop of a war.

Wilfred
Dirty Girl
Bloodworth
Crank: High Voltage
 

A voice expressing emotion in a musical way moves on. It`s like the finale of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - the world turns in on itself, as a universe unto itself, in the shape of one human being.

 

I think actors are at the mercy of the opportunities presented to them. So you kind of have to wait for them to choose you. My music is insular - I can choose that.
