Lux/Eon Records' to Release Ronen Landa's "Yinz" Film Score

Ronen Landa's original score to the thriller, Yinz is getting a digital release on May 7, 2020 by Lux/Eon Records. Jeremy Michael Cohen helmed the project, both writing and directing. The film was released by Gravitas Ventures and stars Samuel H. Levine (CBS's Elementary), Hailey Hansard (Universal Pictures' Miami Vice) and Teo Rapp-Olsson (HBO's Crashing). Some of Landa's other credits include Dark Sky Films' recently released 1BRA Rising TideCavemenMad as Hell and IFC Films' The Pact, which originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The score consists of 33 tracks and will be available on all major digital sites including iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon and Apple Music.

When discussing the Yinz score Landa says, "Writing the orchestral score for Yinz was a dream come true. When I first read Jeremy's script I knew it would be a special film, and he delivered in droves. The movie is a delicate dance of comedy, drama and suspense, and we had a blast working together to cover all that ground in the music. Hearing it come to life when we recorded was unforgettable; the orchestra was superb and having soloists like Dan Tepfer on piano really elevated the score. Jeremy is a one-of-a-kind writer/director and I can't wait to see what he does next!"

The film's synopsis reads: The aftermath of a prank gone awry tests the bond of three high school best friends as an illicit relationship with an older woman is revealed.


Driven by the endless possibility of sound, composer Ronen Landa creates music that is stirring, inventive, and bold. The press has hailed his work as "an astounding auditory journey" (Cinema Without Borders) and a "multi-layered feast for the ears" (Review Graveyard).

Feature films Landa has scored include Nicholas McCarthy's horror hits THE PACT (Sundance) and AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR (SXSW), Ben Hickernell's romantic drama A RISING TIDE (Showtime) and Rob Legato's psychological thriller ELOISE  (Starz).

Documentaries include Andrew Napier's MAD AS HELL (Hot Docs Conscious Media Award Winner), Cambria Matlow and Morgan Robinson's BURNING IN THE SUN (PBS, Cinema for Peace International Green Film Award Winner), Haydar Daffar's landmark Iraq War film THE DREAMS OF SPARROWS (SXSW) and Nadav Kurtz's PARAÌSO (NYTimes Op-Doc; Sundance; Tribeca Film Festival Best Short Documentary Award Winner).

Currently, Landa resides in Los Angeles. In addition to his work, he serves as Associates Board Chair for Education Through Music – Los Angeles, a nonprofit organization that ensures children attending inner-city schools can receive a high quality music education.
