In an unexpected turn of events, we are wrapping up with a piece that has nothing to envy to the big music composers like Danny Elfman.
The past few months have been huge for Jason Achilles Mezilis. Following the release of his debut solo rock-instrumental record entitled “COMEDOWN” in late June, Jason traveled to Budapest, Hungary alongside film composer Andy Brick to record his premier foray into the world of original orchestral composition works, with “Schizmatique No. 2” – set for release via iTunes and Amazon today.

Immediately following, Jason returned to the States where he promptly embarked on an east & west coast US tour in support of the “COMEDOWN” release. Following the month-long tour he returned to Los Angeles to mix and oversee mastering of the orchestral composition, in anticipation of pending release, as well as procurement of original artwork by LA-based graphic artist Erin Garey.
Most recently, Jason has been engaged in compositional and musical partnership with award-winning film director Robert Saitzyk (GODSPEED, AFTER THE FLOOD), alongside his other numerous ongoing musical pursuits including initial tracking for a 2017 solo album release.
The “COMEDOWN” instrumental LP (yes, actual vinyl) was recorded and mixed entirely analog and produced by Mezilis in his own boutique recording studio Organic Audio Records in downtown Los Angeles. The album features touring wunderkind percussionist Brett Rocha on drums, with album photography by Yoko Morimoto and an original interior art piece commissioned by renowned Greek digital photographic artist Panos Tsagaris.
