Dear lord...what you did for this film, the amount of heart and soul and care and rocking tasty flavor… you blew me away with your talent and great personality. THANK you. You made the movie even better than I ever could have imagined. You rocked. Thank you.
Working with Konsonant music was a dream come true! Gil Talmi's wonderful energy and passion for storytelling made the process of collaboration one of the most enjoyable moments of making this film. He brought so much heart to the music and elevated the film's emotional spine. I couldn't have asked for a better soundtrack. Sound design was also very important to the film during the editing. Gisela Fulla-Silvestre sound mixing and re-recording editing shined in our film, accentuating the sounds of construction and landscapes of Texas in order to receive the whole experience of the Texas construction boom. I have made a new family with Konsonant and will definitely be working with them for my future projects.

One of the great pleasures in creating my film "Desert Migration" was being able to work with composer Gil Talmi. As a person, Gil was always engaging, funny and compassionate. As a composer, he is beyond talented, drawing from a vast musical knowledge. He always knocked it out of the park, giving me exactly what I wanted, and then everything I didn't know I wanted. It was an immensely successful creative relationship, one that I hope to continue in the future.
Gil Talmi has scored over eight films of mine (5 of them features). He is a true artist and gentleman. His music is emotionally captivating yet light and sensitive in its touch. The working collaboration is fun and inspiring. He has a beautiful historic studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard where you will be offered an espresso, fine chocolate and an amazing creative experience where your film will musically discover its full potential and then some.
Gil Talmi was the composer of the original score for a feature documentary I produced called DESERT MIGRATION about gay men who are long-term survivors living with HIV and the community they've created in and around Palm Springs, California. In short, Gil is an amazing talent. His work on this specific film was just dazzling. He connected beautifully to the visual landscape, the power of the cinematography, and to the stories that are at the heart of the film. He brought great sensitivity and emotion to his work, and the end result was a score that features wonderful nuanced and viscerally engaging music that we were proud to showcase. Gil's company Konsonant is an extremely professional operation, and we were delighted by the enterprise aspects of the experience too. Since that time, Gil opted to do a soundtrack release of the score for our film, and this was a treat for us. From there, I also began working with Gil as the composer and music producer on a new film that I am directing/producing THE LONELY CHILD. The film is about a little-known Yiddish lullaby from the time of the Holocaust, and Gil has already been a fantastic resource during the fundraising phase for that project. For my part, I am just one of many filmmakers who has been fortunate to work with Gil. I see how generously he conducts himself in the indie film business, and it's a pleasure and an honor to know him. The fact that I also get to call him a creative collaborator is a great gift.
Gil Talmi makes the effort to understand and care about his projects unlike any other composer I've worked with. His versatility and mastery over a range of unique instrumentation makes for powerfully beautiful music that expands the meaning and scope of the scenes it inhabits. When a soundtrack draws attention not to itself but to the essence of the emotional gravity of a scene or character, you know it has been crafted by an attentive craftsman who posses a rare brand of emotional genius. Gil Talmi is more than fitting of that description.
Andrew, thanks for bringing the thunder!
Gil is an incredibly talented, deeply intuitive composer. I’ve had the great pleasure of collaborating with him on a range of projects from documentary series to shorter form works and he consistently brings soul and emotional resonance to the stories we’re telling. He’s the real deal and a total pleasure to collaborate with.
Gil is that rare breed of composer. Not only is he extremely talented and versatile (his music can make you dance or it can make you weep), he is a delight to work with. There’s no ego here. Just a thoughtful, sensitive composer who will give your project everything he’s got and will work with you until you’re happy. He did a wonderful job on our PBS documentary “Tales of the Waria” and I hope to have many future collaborations with him.
