A standout track from his score for the Apple TV + short film, Here We Are: Notes For Living On Planet Earth. The track opens with calming, electronic ambience before exploding into gorgeous, string-accented instrumentals; a spectral choir takes over at the midpoint, culminating in a piece of music that’s gigantic in scope and utterly beautiful. –  Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
