Here at Composium we've been very busy the last 12 months having fun producing music and songs for projects as varied as Calvin Klein fashion; touring live over the USA and Europe with Brooklyn band Camera2, who's video debuted on Rolling Stone.com ; having 3 songs delightfully shimmied to on the Las Vegas stage by Miss Melody Sweets; and launching a new project of songs and videos called Stringfellow.
Plus not forgetting our continual placement of much music across the big screen and small.
And lastly but certainly not least, a huge congratulations to our own Tim O'Heir for his Grammy nomination for the Original Broadway Cast album as well as his Tony nomination for 'Best Sound Design' on the hit Broadway show 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' staring Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig.
aka Mike Williams is his latest project of songs and videos set to epic soundscapes of a by-gone era. Evoking deliberate images of the silver-screen and movie soundtracks with the two videos being shot and edited all in house. This song again features a haunting guest vocal of Myra Flynn.
See HERE for more info and another video shot in an abandoned movie set along the Rio Grande in West Texas.
The Butterfly Mind
An original score for this short movie
titled The Butterfly Mind written and directed by Brett Hammond.
A tense drama of a father trying to come to terms with the loss of his son.
This short gained favorable recognition at numerous film festivals in the US and Europe.
Our piece titled 'Collin's Run' starts at the
4minute 50seconds mark.

Calvin Klein's Men's runway show in Milan. It goes along with a series of tracks produced for CK's shows over the past few years.
As coincidence would have it, not only did we help shoot a recent interview with legendary Dave Davies of The Kinks for our friends Gibson Guitars New York, but Composium's Michael 'Miguelito' LaMorte recently wrote, directed and edited this short film inspired by The Kinks song 'Death of a Clown'.

A great shout-out and mention of Camera2 by author
Peter Allan Lloyd who penned the book Bombed Out about the Liverpool music scene in the late seventies and early eighties.
A great insightful read even if you were not around to be part of the shananigans back in the day.
We recently got a interesting placement for the song 'Ghost' by our band Goodfinger in a video exploring the POW caves and tunnels in Vietnam. The accompanying article goes on to mention the connection between Composium's Mike Williams, the Liverpool and New York's Music scenes, and then on to Mike's current band Camera2.

New York band Camera2 shot this video a little while back with some interesting results. Our very own Mike Williams not only plays drums and performs in this video but also did a nice side gig of prop Styling the shoot too. Yes we do it all folks!

Our good friends Enstereo approached us to mix one of their songs. We loved the track so much that we did just that.
