Composer 

Emily Rose Simons has a classical choral background and a inate understand of emotive piano music, and dramaturgy through score. Her work lends itself well to emotional, funny and horror films. 

So wrapped up in creating the perfect holiday memory at their Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian American family completely miss the fact that one of their own does not intend to stick around for the dinner...or at all. This short film was written by Ali Keller, directed by Jaclyn Gramigna, and produced by Ali Keller LLC.

After a painful divorce from her wife, Sid goes on a girls’ weekend with her three besties – who are horrified to discover she has never tried therapy! Through a series of absurd (and sometimes musical) flashbacks, the night unravels as each attempts to convince Sid that only by sharing her struggles will she finally be free of them. A queer comedic romp into the nightmarish challenges of finding the “right” therapist, THERAPY WON’T KILL YOU is a trippy and whimsical whirlwind, bending genre at every turn.

Hired to care for a doctor's young wife, who's mysteriously confined to a wheelchair, our protagonist finds herself as an unwilling participant to the priorities and rituals of higher powers. It's an opportune moment to explore the treatments of healthcare professionals through a horror lens.

Shenanigans ensue when an actress receives her first major role moments before attending a no-technology artists' retreat in this ensemble film piece from the acting and writing collective THE HIVE.

The Golden Age of Content

THE GREAT VANISHING tracks the lives of a diverse group of citizens - scientists, teachers, artists, students, YouTubers and more - who wake up one day to learn that the Great Pyramid at Giza has disappeared without a trace. As ancient monuments begin to vanish around the world, human beings must learn to live with a new and terrifying uncertainty. Where are our ancient foundations going, and who among us is going with them?

Wendell and Pan
composer

A play written by Katelynn Kenny, directed

Ria T. DiLullo, with an original score from

Emily Rose Simons. 

Life's hard when you're 11, your only friend is the ghost of your 12-year-old dead aunt, your sister wishes she could be on the other side of her cellphone, your parents make every room frigid, and your sick grandpa wants you to kill him. Presented by The Skeleton Rep and The Tank, WENDELL & PAN is a magical dramedy about loneliness, the strange nature of grief, and that moment in your childhood that reverberates with every step you take into the adult world. 

'Emily Auciello's sound design and compositions by Emily Rose Simons capture the joy and danger of Pan's presence, as well as the high and lows of the piece.'

Virginia Jimenez, Times Square Chronicles

'With subtle nods to "When You Wish Upon a Star" and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, the appealing melodies of composer Emily Rose Simons' original score dynamically accompanies and accentuates the events.'
