Artists of the Bahamas was the first feature-length film I scored. I studied the music of the Bahamas to get an authentic sound. The result was a very sincere atmosphere that is filled with acoustic instruments and simple arrangements.
Artists of the Bahamas is a documentary film that explores the lives and works of Amos Ferguson, Kendal Hanna, Max Taylor, Brent Malone, Dave Smith, Eddie Minnis, Stan Burnside, Jackson Burnside, Antonius Roberts, John Beadle, & John Cox, key visual artists whose talents contributed to the initial art movement in the Bahamas.
