THE SKIN I’M IN records original score with 30+ live musicians

Our scoring session in Salt Lake City was incredible.

Supported by a grant from the Sundance Institute Film Music Program with additional support from the Sundance Institute/Time Warner Foundation, Inc. Fellowship Program, we recorded over 40 minutes of original score by composer Ronit Kirchman.

The scoring session took place over the course of two days at Michael Greene’s Rotosonic Sound, a magical space with incredible acoustics and a great atmosphere.

Special thanks to music contractor Ted Hinckley and the 30+ musicians that shared their talents on the soundtrack.

If composing the score and playing a number of instruments herself wasn’t enough Ronit also conducted the scoring session. Sound designer and music editor Scott Johnson kept us on track for an incredibly tight two days of recording, after which he and Ronit launched directly into four days of music editing and mixing with the amazing Mike Roskelley.

After six years of working on this project as a largely solo endeavor, it was wild to have so many people come together to record the music. Ronit’s work adds such a powerful dimension to the film; I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

Until then, here are some images from our two-day session.
