Michael Lloyd scores David and Fatima

Posted on January 22, 2008 by Dan Goldwasser

Recently, composer Michael Lloyd recorded his score to the independent drama, David and Fatima. Set in Israel, the film tells the story of a forbidden love between David, a Jewish teenager who falls in love with a Palestinian girl named Fatima. Lloyd conducted his score with the Hollywood Studio Symphony at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros.

Expressive and emotional, the orchestral score also features vocal elements sung by Christy Crowl, George Doering on oud and guitar, and Pedro Eustache on ney and duduk. During one of the cues, concertmaster Bruce Dukov performed an expressive violin solo.
