Composer Graham Reynolds has worked with director Richard Linklater on four feature films, including Before Midnight, Bernie and Last Flag Flying. But their first collaboration was on this weirdly funny but inescapably prophetic Rotoscope-animated adaptation of Philip K Dick’s novel about alternate realities, drugs, paranoia and the surveillance state. Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr. and Winona Ryder can still be detected underneath the movie’s digitally scrambled vision of suburban stoner simulacra.
Since exploding onto the Vancouver theatre scene with her score for the critically acclaimed Crime and Punishment (Neworld, VMT, PuSh), composer Joelysa Pankanea’s music has been celebrated in theatres across Canada. As a composer, musical director, sound designer and percussionist, her versatility has taken her into the worlds of theatre, film, and animation and garnered her multiple awards and nominations. Joelysa is a freelance composer, and the resident composer for ARC in Toronto.
