EddieBower (BMI) began his music industry career in 1999 as a Traffic Manager for radio station WABB-FM in Mobile, Alabama. After 3 years; he was let go and left to ponder if his career was over before it started. While living in a hotel room with his dad, he harnessed his musical skills and produced a local hip-hop act that opened for Ludacris in 2003. Moving back to L.A. shortly thereafter, he quickly discovered that he was a “small fish in a BIG pond!” Knowing that he needed more, he decided to attend Musicians Institute (http://www.mi.edu) in ’05. After graduating from MI’s Audio Engineering program in 2006, he was hired as Chief Engineer for multi-platinum producer George "G-One" Archie (R. Kelly, DJ Quik, Raphael Saadiq) and has worked with such artists as WC, Tank, Darius McCrary, Yukmouth, and Greg Phillinganes (Michael Jackson) as well as the 2007 HBO documentary Bastards of the Party (directed by Antoine Fuqua). He was hired shortly after at MI as a Studio Session Supervisor before becoming a full-time Audio Engineering Instructor in 2010, awarded with Audio Engineering Instructor Of The Year. Now entering his 11th year, he has taught a variety of audio engineering classes, and has now added film composer and post-production mixer to his credit. Always looking for “more” opportunities; Eddie is as hungry as ever. A seasoned professional with a work ethic to match, it’s only a matter of time.

This is an orchestral cover to the score “Crossing Mars,” from the motion picture ‘The Martian’ starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean, Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Donald Glover & Benedict Wong. The original score was composed by Harry Gregson-Williams (The Equalizer films, Mulan, Man On Fire). First, love this movie. Secondly, I love this score. Harry really captured the sense of space and isolation; which is right for Matt’s character Nick Watney. This particular cue comes from Watney crossing Mars to the MAV to get him home. I wanted to make sure I got the instruments correct as far as orchestration; but the tough part was the FX. I love the sub bass to bring out the thickness like in the original; and I hope this is worthy of a nod. Again, all ear and all MIDI. Comment, subscribe, give a thumbs up. Thank you for your time.
