FILM SCORES

“If I could work with “D” (Donald Rubinstein) on every film I ever made, I’d do it. I have never worked with a person in the filmmaking process like him. He comes into the room, wants to know what the film’s about, and then works with you to completely realize the film for what it’s meant to be. He’s the purest guy I’ve ever worked with. He’s an absolute innocent. He’s there to do the work, and you’ve got to respect that…D doesn’t do shit for the fuck of it. He does shit from the heart. His heart, your heart. The amazing thing is that he can see and hear your heart…D Rules.” George A. Romero, Director

“George Romero’s deeply disturbing portrait of a modern day “vampire” comes with an equally chilling score – haunting, minimalist jazz penned and performed by pianist-poet Donald Rubinstein. Elevates the horror score into high art. One of the top 100 coolest film scores of all time.” Mojo Magazine

“Like all great artists, Donald Rubinstein creates because he has to; probing his soul and his psyche with originality, beauty, humor, pathos, lyricism, energy and an abundance of love...opening windows to an aesthetic that is both accessible and unique. His work is truly inspiring, whether it be classical, jazz, folk or rock composition, poetry, painting, drawing, whimsical computer generated figures, live performance, or a combination of any of the aforementioned art forms...with great respect and a deep appreciation for his genius." Ed Harris Actor/Director

“The quality and grace with which Donald Rubinstein fuses classical, traditional, medieval, folk, jazz fusion and rock is flawless…His music is superb.”  Music 4 Film
