Inception Premiere & Live Performance with Hans Zimmer & Johnny Marr

Love this movie and the soundtrack! Truly a great musical score.

Hans Zimmer is becoming one of my favorite composers and Chris Nolan my favorite film director.
The track is "Time" from the Inception soundtrack.

Hans Zimmer (piano) and Johnny Marr (guitar).

Other musicians:

Drums: Satnam Ramgotra
Electric cello: Tina Guo
Violin 1: Ann Marie Calhoun
Violin 2: Lili Haydn
The guy working with samples: Mel Wesson
Keyboard: Lorne Balfe
Vocals: Tera Hendrickson
and a 20-piece brass section in the background

It's cool to see and hear Tina Guo on the cello. She performs an amazing solo on Bear McCeary and the BSG Orchesta's "Apocalypse" from Battlestar Galactica's dvd movie "The Plan"

Submitted for Your Approval...

Here are my two paintings for Galley 1988's Twilight Zone Tribute art show. The first one is a GPK style titled: "Kanamit's Finger Food" based on the episode, "To Serve Man" (Painted in acrylics).

This one is titled: "Martians Are Stronger" from the Twilight Zone episode "Mr Dingle The Strong". (Acrylics and white pencil)

Gallery 1988 will be paying tribute to what is easily one of the most influential television shows in the history of the medium, "The Twilight Zone," with "Another Dimension," where over 50 artists will reinterpret and remix episodes, themes and iconography from classic episodes of the series. The show opens Thursday, May 20th and will have an opening reception from 7-10 PM.
