ROLFE KENT SCORES ‘LABOR DAY’


Rolfe Kent teams again with director Jason Reitman for LABOR DAY, which stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.  Kent took intimate instrumentation, including guitars, charango and sounds of crickets, and processed them to create intense moody ambiances, at once both organic and other-worldly, delicately navigating a line between tension and emotion.

ROLFE KENT on LABOR DAY
“Nothing could have prepared me for LABOR DAY,” said Kent. “It was an experience unlike any other I have had. The music was to bring focus to the images, but in an incredibly delicate way. Really an indefinable way. You know it’s simple to compose happy or sad music, but to create something simple yet sophisticated, that calls the listener to be curious and yet uncertain and perhaps a little unnerved, well it called me to forget everything I knew about composition and discover a whole new musical language. It was at once incredibly stressful, and deeply rewarding.”

JOHN NAU AND ANDREW FELTENSTEIN SCORE ‘ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES’


The independent spirit of Venice, CA, morphed into a creative space where composers John Nau and Andrew Feltenstein (ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, BACHELORETTE) work their musical magic.  Both come from a performance background.  Nau was the pianist for the multi-platinum recording artists Hootie and The Blowfish and Feltenstein played and studied jazz.  Together they compose and produce music for film, television and commercials.

John Nau was born and raised in La Jolla, CA.  Nau, who plays piano and organ, led a 9-piece mini jazz orchestra for several years and has been a professional musician since the age of 14.  In addition to his time in Hootie and the Blowfish he has played and toured with Belinda Carlisle, RAT, Coolio, and The Januaries.
