Original music for "Catch Up," written and directed by Mia Santos.
The film will premiere at The Ryerson University Film Festival
on June 2nd, 2012, at The TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto.


My sister and I first came up with the premise for this film while waiting in line for a ride at an amusement park.
It was Halloween and the park was open for business catering to a wide assortment of ghastlies and ghoulies.
The bright lights of the rides at dusk, the screams of delight from the folks on rollercoasters, the costumes... Everything was rife with inspiration.
"Hey, wouldn't it be funny if a guy dressed like...?" would be followed by "And then he gets confused with..."
"Yeah!" we both agreed. "That would definitely be hilarious!"

Many years later I am pleasantly surprised to see that my sister was able to bring our banter to the screen! It was a fairly long process and facinating to see how it all came about. I am deeply honoured to have been asked to help create the music for it. And I am indebted to Joseph Owen for helping me carry it all out! It was a fun project all around!

Track Name: Am I Machines?
The burn, you'll find, is heating thoughts in your mind like brick weighing down the time thinking all about your life

The streets you made pouring black ideas like sick all about the town- there's no running from them now.

She makes you want to run even more, you prick, so you turn to mime escape artists.

Then she comes, appearing suddenly. How she looks among so many...
Then she comes, appearing lovely. How she looks when you can't see her...
Track Name: Make Some Time For Me
You say that you will call me when you got the time,
But that sort of reasoning crosses the line.
Well don't turn the hourglass over yet, baby-
Grains of sand so fine.
You can't set the sundial to your watch, lady-
No you can't own time.

When will you make some time for me?

You say you want to wait for things to be clear,
To wait out the crisis, wait out the fear.
The tick tick ticking of the clock on the wall,
doesn't bring that time near.
There's no use waiting for the pendulum to fall-
What will that endear?

When will you make some time for me?
