Telepathic Out Takes
As founding members of critically acclaimed Toronto based band Do Make Say Think, Ohad Benchetrit and Justin Small have been creating engaging and epic music together for over fifteen years. As composers, their focus has always centered around artistic integrity, passion, and spirited experimentation.
Cinematic in nature, Do Make Say Think has been featured in such award-winning films as The Corporation, Scared Sacred, Everything's Gone Green, and the Oscar-winning Syrianna. This has opened the door for Ohad and Justin to compose the original score for indie feature 'A Simple Curve', an Art Gallery of Ontario curated installation piece for the 2007 nuit blache, and a remix for the film 'Walk All Over Me'. In addition, Justin has sound-tracked a documentary for the CBC titled 'Annie Pootiotook’.
In Fall 2007, Do Make Say Think were invited to take part in The Wordless Music Series of concerts mixing modern classical musicians with indie rockers, which takes place at New York City's Society for Ethical Culture. More recently, TIFF commissioned Do Make Say Think to construct a live score for Erich von Stroheim's "Greed" as part of their Essential Cinema Concerts, in the fall of 2010.
As a member of Broken Social Scene, Ohad has also had the opportunity to score Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's "It's Kind of a Funny Story", Bruce MacDonald's "The Love Crimes of Gillian Guess" and "The Tracey Fragments", and "Snow Cake" directed by Marc Evans. An accomplished engineer and producer, in 2007 Ohad produced Kevin Drew’s critically acclaimed debut solo album “Broken Social Scene presents Kevin Drew...Spirit If”.
