After wrapping up on the title track of “Super K,” critically acclaimed guitarist-composer Ravi Iyer has composed the score for Los Angeles based screenwriter-director Amanda Sodhi’s film “The Dance of Death.” The film explores a young Indian woman’s awakening when her domineering husband’s sudden death brings happiness and freedom into her life.
“It was a pleasure working on the music with Amanda Sodhi for her film ‘The Dance Of Death,’” said Ravi Iyer. “A great film indeed, and I wish her success with this film in the future. Working on a short film was definitely exciting and challenging at the same time as the message to get across has to be achieved in a shorter time frame. So working on the theme music to substantiate the story line was really interesting for me to work upon. Unlike a feature film where you have ample time and space to play around with the music, in case of a short film one needs to be tight and precise in putting across the message of the film.” Iyer is in the process of releasing his solo fusion album with his project titled VRavi-Guitar Fusion.
“The Dance of Death” features many critically acclaimed Los Angeles based actors including Puja Mohindra (“Happy Feet 2,” “Indian Fish in American Waters,” “Foreign,” “Silhouettes,“ “CSI: Miami”), Rahul Nath (“Compromise,” “Nischay Kar Apni Jeet Karoon,” “Hotel Hollywood,” “Provoked,” “Naina”; Ad films for Virgin America, State Farm Insurance, Nintendo, Intel), Shruti Tewari (“Love Aaj Kal”), Samira Saha (“Hotel Hollywood”), Thomas Tevana (“Dostana,” “Jo Bole So Nihaal,” “Khushboo,” “JAG,” “One Life to Live”), Paul Singh, Laikh Tewari and Sitara Attaie. The films’ crew includes Arani Sen (“Til Death Do Us Part,” “6 Women”) as the director of photography, Mark Thomas Lickona (“Chaotic,” “Alphonse”) as the editor, and Damian Parada (“Horton Hears a Who!”) as the sound mixer, sound editor and sound designer.
