Ricardo Garcia, William V. Malpede

Garcia and Malpede are two of the most in-demand musicians in the business today. They are long-time collaborators.

Garcia has co-written and performed songs for such films as the Oscar® winning Brokeback Mountain as well as such high profile films as Collateral, Seven Pounds, The Interpreter, Glory Road, Next and Hancock.

Malpede, a composer/orchestrator, toured extensively as a principal keyboardist and assistant conductor with several Broadway national tours, including Cats, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Music of the Night and The Drowsy Chaperone. In Los Angeles he worked with composer Christopher Young on Urban Legend, Runaway Jury and Spiderman 3.

William started composing original scores of his own for such films as Angels Don’t Sleep Here, Dog Gone Love and Guys ‘N Divas: Battle of the High School Musicals. He has won an award for his concert choral music and has co-written songs featured in the films The Interpreter, Bangkok Dangerous and Domino.

Garcia says that they had a lot to work with on the film. “Because these characters had come full circle in life we chose to blend orchestral arrangements and the use of vocalizing to explore the characters’ emotional depth while at the same time celebrating the kid inside.”

The score was composed in 23 days and recorded at the historical Capital Records building in Hollywood.

The end credit song, “The Kid Inside” was composed by Garcia, Malpede and Ken Karman, and performed by The Green Car Motel. |
