Original SoundtracksAlex Greene has created many soundtracks for commercials, live theater and dance, podcasts, and short films. Here are a few of the standouts.
Citizens Not Subjects!
Verissima Productions, 2010. This documentary (aired on several PBS affiliate stations throughout Tennessee) concerns the rise and fall of the E.H. Crump political machine, which ruled Memphis for over four decades. Greene's original soundtrack, a foray into Memphis musical styles through the 20th century, was recorded with the Rolling Head Orchestra and is available through Mulatta Records.
Wayne County Ramblin'Little Ruby Pictures, 2002. This surreal road trip pic features Iggy Pop in the role of an elusive grandfather and voodoo priest lurking in the Mississippi countryside. Alex Greene contributed Mellotron, clavinet, and Wurlitzer electric piano when Iggy recorded the end title tune, "Daddy Cool." The soundtrack, which also features the Reigning Sound, was produced by Dan Rose and Mick Collins.
King Pictures, 1998. An absurdist romp about a Mexican telenovela starlet with a passionate desire to become an Olympic javelin thrower. Variety noted the pic's "subtle, ironic score."
