Congratulations to Staydream’s composer, Adam Dachman, on his work in Sharknado 6!
Mr. Dachman first connected with Sharknado producer David Michael Latt through Ancestry.com, where they discovered they share a common ancestor.
“It turns out we have the same great, great grandfather,” Mr. Dachman stated, “David’s passion for genealogy led to our initial communications. But we found out about our similar passions for film and television creation.”
Later, Mr. Latt introduced Mr. Dachman to his studio composers, Chris Ridenhour and Chris Cano. After a couple of years of correspondence, the group started working collaboratively; resulting in an invitation for Mr. Dachman to help score the final installment of the Sharknado series.
“As they got deep into the scoring, they farmed out some specific work for me to do out of my Madison studio,” Mr. Dachman stated, “My specialty for this project was piano.”
Mr. Dachman is a classically trained pianist and studied composition and film scoring at Berklee College of Music, Thinkspace UK, and The Hollywood Music Workshop. Mr. Dachman is also a member of American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers (ASMAC).
Sharknado 6 is now available on SyFy.
