Original Music
Since being a pioneer of soundtrack composition for internet applications in the early 90s, Shawn approaches sound not unlike a painter or sculptor. From this perspective his work is often thematic, sometimes jarring, and always communicating. A longtime Badalamenti-to-Lynch musical collaborator with Kevin and Bad Mouth, Shawn finds a home in the theatre, insisting on fitting the square peg into the round hole.
