Marcelo Zarvos scores The Air I Breathe

Posted on November 28, 2006 by Dan Goldwasser

Composer Marcelo Zarvos (The Door in the Floor, Hollywoodland) was at the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox this week to record his score to the new independent drama, The Air I Breathe. Starring Kevin Bacon, Julie Delpy, Forest Whitaker, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Brandon Frasier (among many others), the film is a drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love.
