Composing for feature films or for television series and films, gives me just enough freedom/space to feel good and enthusiastic about sitting down in front of my computer displays or with a guitar on my knee to start a day's work. In addition to which, I'm truly happy and fortunate to be working in so many different areas; the challenge keeps me "fresh" and up to speed with the latest standards, cuttng edge trends, sounds and technology. The challenge is really about giving each project that special "signature", that unique and personal touch.

"The compositions are fabulous, the light sublime.
Hypnotic score is another plus"

Lisa Nesselson, Variety, January 1999


One day, a shepherd named Bo finds a badly hurt woman in the desert. He takes her to the sheep farm that he runs with his younger brother Bu. The woman, whom the brothers name Ba, seems to have lost the power of speech. She makes no effort to communicate with the brothers, who soon begin to feel possessive and jealous about their new acquisition. The film's beautiful landscape of merciless desert implies a continuous fight for survival, particularly when all must be done according to rituals decided a long time before. Bo seems to represent the primitive man with his animalistic instincts, whereas Bu stands for pure and spiritual love.
