Swartz attends recording session at Sony

On March 7, 2016, Swartz attended a recording session at Sony Pictures' historic Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage to record music written by Peter Boyer. During this session, 94 A-list Hollywood instrumentalists and vocalists (contracted by Peter Rotter and Jasper Randall, respectively) recorded seven cinematic cues with astonishing precision and musicianship. Swartz assisted Boyer with score preparation.

Formerly an MGM shooting stage, an extensive and diverse history of film scores has been recorded here from the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens all the way back to The Wizard of Oz of 1939, under a roof that has collected some hanging curiosities (including a model of the USS Enterprise, several of John Lasseter's Hawaiian shirts, and a whole bicycle).
