Recording the score for Dixie Dynamite was quite a bit of fun – we recorded over 70 minutes of music with Japanese instrumentalists playing with a southern rock band. There is one cover song – Freebird, for the climactic kung fu fight – which I arranged with a taiko ensemble and an epic shamisen solo.

Dixie Dynamite is playing in London at 1pm at the Tabernacle, as part of the Portobello Film Festival‘s final day this Sunday the 20th.

Dixie Dynamite will also play at the Long Beach Comic-Con, as part of the film festival there. The film’s animation has a real comic-book look. It’s playing Sunday October 4th at 1pm (you can download the schedule).

I will be at the London showing and probably will make it to Long Beach too.

Here’s one of the songs from the score, “Bad Luck Man”:
