_Laurel Canyon, A Place in Time 2020 [EPIX]

Nominated for three Emmy awards, “Laurel Canyon, a place in time”  is a two-part doc series that pulls back the curtain on a mythical world and provides an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it. Through a wealth of rare and newly unearthed footage and audio recordings, the series features an intimate portrait of the artists who created a musical revolution that changed popular culture. Uniquely immersive and experiential, this event takes us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical petri dish. Featuring the music of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Doors, Linda Ronstadt, Eagles, and many more.

Paul wrote the original score to frame and highlight the many seminal songs that inhabit the film.  There can be a surprising amount of original score needed to tell a story, even one that has music as the subject.  This original score has a textured and deftly themed sound that underpins the movie’s beautifully told narrative.
