Provoked by messages to re-listen to 40 Days Score. It’s not bad. Weird, realizing that some of the stuff you wrote 10 years ago is just as good as what one is writing now.
I think I accidentally deleted a message about Jeremy Cooke. Anyway the answer was YES, I am indeed a pal of that eccentric journalist.
graniteriver asked: Hello Rolfe,
I'm a video producer in Concord, NH. A team of dedicated volunteers produced this piece for the Boys & Girls Club here in Concord to act as a fund raiser for the city of Concord. We would very much like to use your song "Lost In Detroit" in the piece permanently; it just fits. Would you be willing to grant that permission to us? Please contact me for a link to the finished video. Tumblr would not allow me to send the link in this format.
Thank you very much for your consideration sir.

I’d be very happy for you to use it, but please understand I don’t own the music- officially you’d need to contact the film company for permission.
socialbarmuc asked: HI Rolf, this is Andreas. I would like to use your dexter soundtrack in a Halloween Video. Check out my other Video its called 4001 post-its for Steve Jobs. Would that be possible? Many thanks Andreas
I don’t own the music- that’s SHOWTIME. So best I can suggest for getting official permission is to contact them.
jgcornucopia asked: Hi, my name is Jon, I want to watch movies for the rest of my life because I love pop corn, I also love listening to music. I enjoyed Reign Over Me's sound track... If I can combine my love for film, music, and pop corn, what aspect of a film team would I shoot for? I really want to do this. I'm not sure where to start.
Tricky to include the popcorn, unless you just want to work in a cinema. Otherwise I suggest you become either a filmscore journalist, a film music-editor, or run a radio show of filmscores. If the show is popular you’d be invited to press screenings, get free cds etc.
Having a really great time recording the score for LABOR DAY. It’s a very textural, ambient kind of score- and with the orchestra we have been experimenting with textures. You see sometimes the strings simply have a chord written for 2 minutes, so rather than just hold sustained notes a variety of other techniques are being used. Combinations of trills, and random motion between the notes of a chord, as well as handing off notes between players are being used. Surprising textures emerge. It’s really amazing, and so much fun. The film is intensely atmospheric, so this music is contributing a lot.
Election and Citizen Ruth are two of my most favorite scores. How come they’ve never been released in full (the one suite track on the Election OST doesn’t count)? I’ve seen many other lesser scores from lesser-known movies that have been released. Why not release both together as a single-disc release like they just did with Office Space and Idiocracy (which I can’t imagine would be more popular)? Or if not…uploading a few tracks from both on the Radio Reefus player would be a start…
YOU ARE VERY KIND. Send me your email via Facebook and I’ll see what I can send you. ROLFE
moisdee asked: Hi Mr Kent,
i'm an italian fan! I would to ask you, where i can find and buy a song of you. This song was on "40 Days & 40 Nights" soundtrack, in "flower scene" precisely (when they have love with flowers) before the song "Moby - Memory Gospel". I hope you can write me back soon.
Just for you… https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2603477/21%20Flowers%20seduction%20%28vocal%29.mp3
desperately-seeking-helena asked: I love the music you composed for the 2004 film Mean Girls, but I can't seem to find the score soundtrack - just the 'official' one with popular music. Does such a soundtrack exist?
I dont think there’s a soundtrack. Some tracks are on my website though.
