John Sayles' AMIGO and A Moment in the Sun out at last.

Friday, July 16, 2010


Sammy Asuncion is blowing our minds. The soundtrack is taking a new, Eastern direction as Sammy plays to picture. He is trying out new tunings as Mason asks him to stretch the  hegalong to reach the Western instruments we recorded yesterday. Sammy's first cue is over the opening of the movie, as the villagers work in the ricefields. Sets the tone.

Thank you, Dennis. Thank you, Sammy.


  1. Hi, sorry if it looks like I'm spamming your site. This is Ilia Uy. I've been tasked by Expat Travel and Lifestyle Magazine to write about "Amigo." I would just like to ask your permission to use this photo. Also, if you have an email address that I could write to and ask additional questions about the film (apart from the info on this blog), that would help greatly. Thanks!

  2. Ilia,
    How can I get in touch with you? Send me your email address? Maggie
