PURPLE MIND – MUSIC 07/16/2012

If we had made our independent feature film, “Purple Mind,” with stars and bank financing, it’s probable that we also would have hired a well known composer like Hans Zimmer or Van Dyke Parks  to handle all the music chores.  As we didn’t have access to any stars (except for Beau Bridges’s daughter Emily) and didn’t have financing to afford a well known composer, we had to rely on a wonderful music library which film &TV music supervisors regularly use for shows.  But music libraries always come up short when it comes to things like main title songs which are typically original compositions.  So, it wasn’t until we began sharing the film with some of our core audience of veterans and peace activists that one of our fans, musician and song writer Pat Scanlon sent us a song called “Young Soldier, Welcome Home.”

01 Young Soldier Welcome Home

Pat is the President of the Boston Chapter of Veterans for Peace, “The Smedley Butler Brigade,” and served in Vietnam in the late sixties.  We thought his song was perfect for the end of our film as it so clearly speaks to issues like PTSD, which is the subject of “Purple Mind.”
