Music from the short film, PLURIPOTENT, directed by Christopher Kulikowski.

The film and its fine actors and direction inspired what might be called, a "modern" film noire Music. The subject matter is deeply emotional and portrays characters in great conflict. Sympathy and shock are in well-paced interplay.

Both Christopher and the Producers were touched by the Music, replete with dark drama and bittersweet beauty. I was very happy to contribute to this great ensemble effort and wish to thank all involved.

Enjoy & Godspeed! Steve
