Zak Engel ’10 releases soundtrack to major motion picture

The music major wrote the score for the film “The Inquisition of Camilo Sanz,” which made its debut in July 2014 and has since been submitted to film festivals worldwide.

“I am so excited to share this music,” Zak wrote in an email to his former teacher and mentor Professor Don Meyer. “It is some I am most proud of, and is representative of the music I hope to keep making throughout my life.” 

Studying films with Professor Meyer gave Zak an ear for the sound of a movie. “We’d sit and look at a piece of film without music and then with it, and we’d talk about what worked and what didn’t,” Engel explained. The process taught him how to create music for films without competing with the dialog.

“From reading scripts to seeing and understanding a character’s motives came from studying films with Don.” 

The film score to “The Inquisition of Camilo Sanz” is available on I-Tunes and Spotify
