Soundsmiths Michael Ely and Spider Taylor created, worked and lived together for over forty three years. Their long-standing relationship is evident in their music, as they are very much “in tune” with one another.
In addition to their past work in punk and post punk bands, Michael and Spider recorded four CDs of original soundtrack music. They also composed music for several commissioned projects, and recorded a campy remake of “Happy Trails” for the documentary “Walking with Freedom”, which screened unofficially at Sundance in 2005.
In early 2008, Michael and Spider’s song, “Hanuman, The Monkey God” from their Deities CDs, was picked up by Touchstone Pictures for use in the release of the hip hop dance film “Step Up 2 The Streets.”
If you’re searching for cutting edge music to enhance a film or commercial project, please contact Michael to learn more about licensing one of their over 140 highly original tracks available for creative needs. Students and filmmakers on limited budgets are encouraged to ask about reduced prices.
