Welcome to

Music guides us through the path of a film;  A piece of  emotion resonating with each note sending you into heaven or hell or any of the vast areas in-between.  The best a composer can do is to recognize the heart of a film and translate it musically (some say magically) into something brilliant. Marks music intertwines with emotions giving us the essence of the film. -Diane De LaRose

…stunningly scored…

…..the score is one of the best I have experienced in an Underground film. It fits into the whole experience perfectly!…..

I could say a lot about the incredible score by Mark Kueffner, like how it enriched and elevated the film far beyond what Phil Stevens or I imagined. FLOWERS is more than just another low-budget horror flick and this haunting melody is proof that there’s a certain emotional depth there that’s usually missing from the genre. Mark recognized the movie’s heart and translated it musically.     Ronnie Sorter, Editor
