DAY 39 was one of four films selected to take place in the ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) film scoring workshop. As part of the workshop we partnered with the incredibly talented composer Francis Rodriguez to develop a unique score for the film. Once the scope was designed ASCAP sponsored a recording session at MSR Studios in New York City with 16 union musicians from the New York area.
