    Fil Eisler - Newtown

    Jan 22, 2016

    Newtown, the Sandy Hook documentary with music composed and commissioned by Fil Eisler, premieres at Sundance this weekend.

    The documentary explores the aftermath of the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, in which 20 first-graders and six staff members were killed in the second deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

    Variety has described the creation of the score as “the most ambitious score of any movie in the festival: 17 different composers contributed music, all because they were moved by the subject matter.”

    After being asked to write the score, Fil quickly realized that the subject matter was just too overwhelming for a father of a four year old. He consulted with the filmmakers and they gave him the approval to open up the scoring process to other great composers, all of whom felt equally passionate about contributing. Contributors include George S. Clinton, Deborah Lurie, Christopher Drake, Tyler Bates, Jeff Beal, Sean Callery, Miriam Cutler, Jeff Danna, Rob Duncan, Christopher Lennertz, Dino Meneghin, Mikael Sandgren, Gingger Shankar, Rob Simonsen, Mark Renk, and Blake Neely.
