E.Z.

Index Films, 2007.  Directed by Alexander Tana.

E.Z. is the second film I’ve scored for director Alexander Tana (the other is Murder Rhapsody). Frustrated at his lack of Hollywood offers, Alexander went off and wrote 26 scripts, one for each letter of the alphabet. He then lined them up on a shelf, shut his eyes and picked one at random. E.Z. is the result.

A love store and courtroom drama (without the courtroom — the long-lost lovers discuss the trial in which they’re both involved), E.Z. had a very unusual musical requirement. Alexander wanted an eight-minute opening montage set to classical music standards and a bluesy, “crying in my drink” ballad. Alexander wrote the lyrics, and I set it to music. Eytan Myrsky provides the vocals.
