Amine Ramer and Michael Turner
Amine Ramer and Michael Turner have previously teamed as music supervisors on MTVN/Logo’s Bad Sex television series; they are now working alongside each other on Paul Schrader’s new feature The Canyons, written by Bret Easton Ellis.
Ms. Ramer has done music supervision for feature films and documentaries, television shows, in-store playlists, advertising campaigns, and online initiatives. Among her credits are Robert Kenner’s Oscar-nominated Food, Inc.; Todd Lincoln’s The Apparition; Sylvain White’s The Losers; the award-winning series Weeds; Pinkberry; David Yurman; the Olsen Twins; Blackberry; Cadillac; and Heineken.
In 2005, she partnered with Alexina Matisse to found and run States of Sound, a full-service boutique agency providing music supervision for independent films, documentaries, and television programs. Through States of Sound, Ms. Ramer applies her expertise to both mainstream fare and independent projects.
Mr. Turner, who often works in conjunction with States of Sound, started his music career in Seattle. He interned at recording studios with such producers and engineers as Jack Endino (for Nirvana and Soundgarden), Reed Ruddy (Heart), and Floyd Reitsma (Dave Matthews, Pearl Jam). Since then, he has worked for some of the most respected entities in music, including Experience Music Project, MTV Networks, KEXP Seattle, and Bug Music/BMG Publishing.
His music supervision work includes commercial spots for Microsoft, Converse, and Brooks Running; Ondi Timoner’s documentary feature Cool It; and Rob Margolies’ soon-to-be-released She Wants Me, starring Josh Gad and Hilary Duff.
