FILM SCORES

 “If I could work with "D" (Donald Rubinstein) on every film I ever made, I’d do it...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...The amazing thing is that he can see and hear your heart. He says things you’ve been wanting to say, and when he says them, they suddenly make sense.  D. rules."  George A. Romero, Director, 2007

“The striking musical vision of composer Donald Rubinstein…Preferring to color his own work with relatively smaller ensembles, experimental jazz, exotic instruments, haunting voices and instantly memorable themes, Rubinstein’s novel cinematic approach is distinguished by a singular “indie” voice- a cool, rebellious vibe developed long before that term was fashionable.” “Donald Rubinstein’s Works of Art” by Daniel Schweiger
