Welcome to Kusiak Music

John's score for Tabloid has won the
2012 Cinema Eye Honors award for
Best Original Music Score!

"John Kusiak has been able to achieve the seemingly impossible: Balance disparate elements and yet create a hauntingly beautiful score that highlights Joyce McKinney and her pursuit of love." more . . .
- Errol Morris, director of Tabloid,
  the Academy Award winning documentary The Fog of War,
  and the Bravo and IFC television series

"As often, Morris surrounds his story with unexpected asides, blindsides us with surprise revelations, and weaves in an ominously urging score by John Kusiak." 
- Film Critic Roger Ebert on Tabloid

"We were extremely fortunate in that once we had locked our edit we were able to get this fantastic composer, John Kusiak . . . It was just amazing working with him on the score." more . . .
- Shawn Rasmussen, co-writer, co-director and co-producer

"Kusiak's style embodies much of the deftness and charm of [Nino] Rota's music as well, embroidering the fanciful gestures of circus-type themes, [...] weaving melody with atmosphere, whimsy with a penetrating gaze . . ." more . . .
- Boston Arts Diary on Tabloid
