Posted on August 24, 2018 by Dan Goldwasser
Last year, composer Pinar Toprak recorded her music for the documentary feature, The Tides of Fate. The film looks at the 34th America’s Cup, where the Oracle Team USA scored a major upset against the Emirates Team New Zealand. The sessions were held at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures, and ScoringSessions.com is thrilled to bring our readers exclusive photos from the session!
