The Invisibles
This is the music from the 1999 Noah Stern film "The Invisibles" starring Michael Goorjian and Portia De Rossi. Apparently I signed something (thought it was a SAG waver - I acted also) that says they never will pay me for the music, but beyond that they never filed the cue list with BMI so I will never receive broadcast royalties, nor mechanical royalties despite being published on DVD. hmmm. note: this collection should really start with the song "Losing Touch" and end with the song "Hey Joy", both of which were rejected and subsequently ended up on my 2003 CD "Edgy Not Antsy" credits released 25 January 1999 all music by Jonathan Segel ©1999 Bumps of Goose, except "Dumb Girl" by Jane Thompson and Jonathan Segel and "Bells" by Alison Faith Levy and Jonathan Segel
