Imagine you are a jazz drummer who has played with almost every famous modern jazz musician from A to Z. You scored music for a circus in Moscow and released an album on the Tzadik label where each track you composed was inspired by sculptor Joan Miró. During your downtime, you assemble five “albums” of sample tracks for the purposes of showing off your film scoring skills. You post these little experiments as free downloads on your Bandcamp account. This grabs the attention of a scout from…America’s Got Talent.
