dream is destiny"
Who better to score the documentary Richard Linklater: dream is destiny than the composer who has collaborated multiple times with Austin’s most influential filmmaker? Austin-based musician Graham Reynolds previously composed the scores to Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly, Bernie and Before Midnight, which made him the natural choice to compose the score to Louis Black and Karen Bernstein’s documentary. Opening Aug. 26 in Austin after premiering at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, Richard Linklater: dream is destiny recalls how Linklater founded the Austin Film Society, enjoyed instant critical success with Slacker (1991); eschewed Hollywood in favor of making intensely personal projects with the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, and Julie Delpy; and spent 12 years working on the Oscar-nominated Boyhood (2014). In addition to working with Richard Linklater, Graham Reynolds also has worked on many shorts and features, including Gretchen, I’ll Come Running, Holy Hell, 5-Time Champion, Far Marfa, Trash Dance, and All is Bright. His work can currently be heard in the Rooster Teeth online series Day 5 as well as Austin-based director Steve Mims’ upcoming sociopolitical documentary Starving the Beast, which opens in Austin on Sept. 16. In addition to being a member of Austin’s jazz-based Golden Arm Trio, Reynolds founded the Golden Hornet Project and has worked with the Austin Symphony Orchestra. He also composed the music for The Intergalactic Nemesis. He will perform with the Golden Arm Trio at the Dive Bar on Aug. 22 and 29 and then perform “Mozart Requiem Undead” on Sept. 16 at the Bass Concert Hall.
