Taking inspiration from European composers like Michael Nyman and Georges Delerue, Mosseri “romanticized” the city with its own impressionistic identity — swirling woodwinds, shivering strings and regal brass. – Tim Greiving, Los Angeles Times
“The movie was a composer’s dream,” said Emile Mosseri of working on The Last Black Man in San Francisco. The Los Angeles Times profiles the score by Mosseri and digs into the modern-day fairy tale aspect of the Indie Spirit and Gotham Award-nominated film in collaboration with Director Joe Talbot. Read the feature now at Los Angeles Times in which Mosseri also talks about recording with a 25-string orchestra to bring about a big, classic score.
