The film recently received an advance/test screening in Nepal, and much to the my amazement, my director, Wendy, told me that it received a ten minute standing ovation and that there’s now an entire mountain praying for the film’s next steps forward (npi).
And in what feels like a subtle compliment, His Holiness asked for some additional music in the film, so I’m back to work on the project, lengthening previous pieces and probably writing some new ones. It’s been a very personal and rewarding experience so far, so this all comes as good news.
Here’s a track from the film. For me, getting to write a little accompaniment to the production sound/chanting at the end was a particularly special moment.
