Although I composed this segment of score for the scene in Paul Wegener’s 1920 prequel to his silent Golem series in the summer of 2002, I only recorded it during...

It's a sunny winter day and a friend and I fear for our lives as my husband, Ron Magid, screeches our oversized Chrysler east down Sunset Boulevard. We're speeding toward the ArcLight Cinemas and a press screening of Peter Jackson's "King Kong."
