Quotes & Reviews
Barry Morrow, Oscar-winning screenwriter:
“The challenge of a film score is a daunting one. As the moon dictates the tides, so the film composer choreographs the emotional currents swirling among the images on the screen. When it is done properly, the audience feels rather than hears the music, and the score enhances the film experience in subtle but profound ways.
Peter Bloesch has met this challenge, and his score for the documentary film
'A Friend Indeed' reveals an artist working at the top of his craft. His thoughtful musical themes and deft emotional interpretations illuminate all the important beats in this heartfelt story, making the journey a magical one.”
Lane Wyrick, film producer:

Working with Peter on the Bill Sackter documentary was a wonderful collaboration. The music he created is brilliantly orchestrated and very moving. His film score is vital to the emotional power of my film.
I look forward to working with him on more projects in the future.”
