"Chris has composed two scores for me and already I can't imagine making a movie without him. My film "American Warships" needed grand orchestral music with a heroic theme. Chris delivered a score to rival anything from John Williams or Jerry Goldsmith. To this day, the "Iowa Theme" gives me chills. Our follow up project, "AE" was a completely different kind of film and Chris changed gears smoothly and powerfully to provide a score with a unique, natural yet eerie feel perfect for the alien jungle-based story. And in both cases he completed the brilliant scores in just a few weeks. Personally, I think he's a genius."
“Chris is an imaginative, eclectic and uber talented composer that like a chameleon changes colors to deliver top score for just about anything you throw at him, and he always meets the deadline, outdoing himself each new score he does. Every score is his best new work!”
–NICK LYON director
"Few composers to my knowledge understand the human heart and cinematic nature like Chris Ridenhour. Our decade long collaboration has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. His music speaks for my soul."
– DANIEL LUSKO
“Chris aimed for his best score ever and, to my ears, just plain did it. Which is why I'm glad to say there is a "musical soundtrack only" selection on both the DVD and BluRay versions of the film so that you, too, can enjoy his artistry isolated.”
