There are many montages in the series Mad Men, and this one is one of my favorites. Not sure exactly why, it may be the simple hypnotic piano, against the warm strings. But maybe it’s the voice over, which this time isn’t Don Draper (Jon Hamm), but Ken Cosgrove (Aaron Staton).
Loved scoring to Aaron’s Staton’s voice over as sits in bed writing.
Here’s my piece called “The Man With The Miniature Orchestra”.
Rainy days in LA always often lead me to darker moods in music listening. Here’s a track from my Milestone score from 1995 when I was listening to scores like Bernard Herrmann’s “Taxi Driver“, and some of the Ry Cooder scores, such as “Johnny Handsome“. Obviously, you now know it’s raining in Los Angeles😐
The Mad Men Christmas office party in season 4 offered up a conga line for which I wrote “Christmas Conga”. Who doesn’t love Joan in this dance? And notice all the small details! Bar carts – love ’em. Surely, holiday office parties are nothing like this one here at Sterling-Cooper, but if you could, wouldn’t you go back just to have a drink with them?
