Starr Parodi scores Conversation(s) With Other Women
8-Feb-2007 -

Critic's favorite comes to DVD

Composer/pianist Starr Parodi provides the score to the 2006 critically acclaimed film Conversations With Other Women, newly released to DVD. Conversations With Other Women, starring Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart, tells the compelling story of a couple whose reunion at a wedding reception ignites a mysterious attraction for each other that is deeper and more emotionally perilous than they are actually willing to admit. The film is currently available on DVD through Hart Sharp Video.

The soundtrack for Conversations With Other Women features 11 original songs by Parodi and her writing partner and husband Jeff Fair. Their track "Last Dance" is a moody and elegant jazz ballad. Beginning with an emotional piano solo, the piece transforms into a strong melodic guitar and trumpet duo over a silky rhythm section. The track "Another Time" features a beautiful acoustic guitar picking pattern and sets a beautiful and melancholy mood for an instrumental pop ballad.

Recognized as the talented, funky, multi-keyboardist who appeared nightly on the groundbreaking late night hit, "The Arsenio Hall Show," Parodi has just released the critically acclaimed CD, "Common Places." Called one of the best albums of the year," by NPR's Chris Douridas, Parodi draws inspiration from her 1928 Steinway grand piano that once adorned the legendary MGM sound stage in its most glorious era and was used on such classic films as "The Wizard of Oz." This latest release from the celebrated musician echoes with cinematic, neoclassical, Americana and gospel themes, all played as "stream of conciousness" improvisations.

Parodi has established a reputation as a leading film and TV composer. Her other recent projects include the scores for High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story, with Michael Imperioli and the hit Lifetime Show The Division. Her music has been included in movie trailers for many of Hollywood's biggest films including the recent hits Casino Royale, X-Men: The Last Stand, Mission Impossible 2, A Good Year and United 93 among others.
