Set in the near future, Swan Song is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father who is expecting his second child with his wife Poppy (Naomie Harris). When Cameron is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. As Cameron grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary, Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.

Jay Wadley is a composer and music producer based in New York, a two-time winner of the Charles Ives Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and featured in IndieWire’s 2020 and 2016 “10 Best Scores of the Year.” He recently scored Charlie Kaufman’s phycological drama-thriller I’m Thinking Of Ending Things, featuring an original ballet. Other recent projects include Heidi Ewing’s, I Carry You With Me, Emma Tammi’s Blood Moon (from Hulu/Blumhouse’s Into The Dark Horror Anthology Series), and Season 2 of Amazon’s Emmy Nominated series Modern Love. He began his professional career orchestrating for Rufus Wainwright, Mark Ronson, and Calexico for performances with orchestras worldwide. A testament to his skillful versatility, Wadley’s Mid-2000s Lo-Fi Bedroom Pop/Post-Punk score for Rhys Ernst’s Adam is “a mind-blowing commitment to period specificity” (LA Times), while Indiewire said Indignation‘s “rich, ‘classical’ compositions are every bit as tortured as Roth’s writing, and as achingly beautiful as any of the treasured music that Schamus commissioned for films like Lust, Caution and Brokeback Mountain when he was running Focus Features.”
He is co-founder of Found Objects Music Productions with Trevor Gureckis. Found Objects is an award-winning music production company working in music for Film, TV, Advertising, and Interactive Media and was named one of Inc. 5000s fastest-growing privately held companies of 2020. Their new studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn, features a state of the art live room and 5.1 mix room, where they recently hosted the score mix for Lin Manuel Miranda and John Chu’s Netflix film adaptation of In The Heights and the score recording and mix of Tamar-Kali’s score for Fisher Steven’s Palmer (AppleTV+).
