Alexis Marsh and Samuel Jones premiere “The Unknown Country” at SXSW

USC Thornton Screen Scoring alumni and composing duo Alexis Marsh and Samuel Jones (both GC ’10) premiered their score for The Unknown Country on March 13 at SXSW. The film was directed by Morrissa Maltz, a common collaborator of the duo.

BMI interviewed Marsh and Jones about their experience with this movie, as well as their other current projects. In the interview, the duo also shared some advice for young composers just starting out in their careers.

“Not only does continually working on your craft make you a better composer, maintaining productivity also creates opportunities in unexpected ways. The more work you create, the more likely you are to have the right music to attract a potential gig at the right time,” said Jones.
