Selected Cues

I love Steve Carell. When Trevor Rabin asked me to write additional music for this film, I was excited. Musically, this film required a delicate balance between action and comedy writing. The music had to have the right tone and be nimble enough to turn (or stop) on a dime to enhance the action and/or comedy at just the right moments. Big challenge. Good fun.

Film Clip

Get Smart - "Thumbprint Trick"

This is a great scene with our heroes sneaking through the bad guy's lair looking for information.  The music plays with them, sneaking around and springing into action, all the while leaving space for the comedic moments to shine.
