Reviews-Exerpted/Film Score and Theatrical Work
Washington City Paper
'Big Night' Dirs. Campbell Scott and Stanley Tucci
'As with fine cooking, Big Night’s savor stems from careful attention
to quality ingredients. Pascal’s Vegasy restaurant is production
designer Andrew Jackness’ special triumph, a circuslike
crimson-and-faux-stone Mafia hangout complete with walls of autographed
celebrity glossies and plastic Leaning Towers of Pisa. Ken Kelsch’s
crisp cinematography and Gary DeMichele’s musical score, which
incorporates vintage recordings by Rosemary Clooney, Keely Smith and,
of course, Prima, enhance the film’s ambience.'.

'The Secret Lives of Dentists'
Dir Alan Rudolph
'......."The Secret Lives of Dentists" is a stylish work from an
accomplished, sophisticated filmmaker that bristles with intelligence
and gleams with Scott's and Davis' multifaceted, astutely judged
portrayals. The film also glows with the clear light and cool tones of
cinematographer Florian Ballhaus' images, and its shifting moods are
expressed beautifully by Gary DeMichele's distinctive score, at once
spare yet dramatic.'
Dir.Campbell Scott and Eric Simonsen
..'Also striking is Gary DeMichele’s piano-and-trumpet-centered score,
which offers a kind of medieval jazz commentary on the action. Dan
Gillham’s lensing, which occasionally rests on the buildings’ cornices
and gargoyle-like adornments, is straightforward, with just enough
interpretive movement to heighten the drama.
Dir. Stanley Tucci
......'Andrew Jackness’ production design and Juliet Polcsa’s costumes
are constantly diverting delights to the eye, and Gary DeMichele’s
score is spry.
'Drums in The Night'(Actors Gang Theatre co.,artistic Director Tim Robbins (Gary DeMichele,composer/sound design) )
..A decided plus in this production is the compelling sound design of
Gary DeMichele that constantly underscores the harrowing conditions in
the world just outside the walls of our agenda-challenged protagonists.
