Music composed Joe Payne ©2008.
Composed and performed by Joe Payne. The director and I wanted the music to be modern and have a sense of urgency or anticipation. I wanted the music to be pretty as well. The time motif is unmistakable. You will also hear the actors' voices: Dennis Parlato as Oliver Lucas, and Antony Hagopian as Philip Lucas, which were pulled from the archival video.
