"Ed Hartman's music is astounding."
Maria Humphreys, Strong Body Strong Soul (Podcast)

"Hartman’s new score is a fine complement to this new release. It is period appropriate, but with a modern feel, which is appropriate for the forward-thinking tone of the film."
Kendahl Cruver,

"...the digitally restored 1938 original has been outfitted with a period-appropriate score by contemporary composer Ed Hartman."
Michael RechtshaffenLA Times

“Congratulations on your achievements and a fantastic score. Continue making music that tells a story as much as the film itself. We hope to experience more of your work in the future.”
Global Independent Film Awards (Winner Gold Award, Best Score)

"Fans of the obscure will want to check out this...program, which represents an act of love and faith from one artist [Hartman] to another [Lyford]."
Nathaniel Bell, LA Weekly

"The new music brings the old film home. Ed Hartman has designed a soundtrack the informs and often comments on the film’s central action, the tapping of a desk given percussive elements, or escalating sounds conveying the tone of the conceit."
Calvin Kemph,

How to Hire a Composer

Music Licensing Vs. Film Scoring (keeping your music budget down)

"Ed has scored 3 of my short films. He's been great to work with- he takes notes and collaborates well as I communicate what I'm looking for in a score. He really knows music- a multi-instrument musician, he offers full-service film scoring. I'd recommend him for filmmakers looking for a composer who provides great customized scores for their films."
