German writer-director Tomasz Thompson came across the music of the Born Ruffians while on internet radio. Soon, he had commissioned an original score by frontman Luke Lalonde and travelled to Toronto to oversee the production. This was my first recording project at Angle's Up
, a cozy garage studio near my house. Luke spent a few days multitracking original parts - I played drums on one track - and soon we had a number of themes to work with. We also re-edited stems from Red, Yellow, and Blue
to create instrumental mixes. At the end of the week, Tomasz returned to Germany with a near-finished film score.
