Movie  Music  Composers


The Alloy Orchestra  [est. 1990]
These three guys – Ken Winokur (director), Terry Donahue & Roger Miller – are incredibly talented: I saw
them perform their new score for the restored "Metropolis" [1927] on a big screen in El Paso, Texas
in August 2010: the music was perfection, their labors Herculean, and the standing ovation well-deserved.
