collaborating with songwriter/producer J. Ralph on the release of his
expansive Wretches & Jabberers Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

The soundtrack debuts on CD

is timed to coincide with National Autism Awareness Month, and a portion of all

listening during mixing, and helped connect J. Ralph with longtime McIntosh
owner Bob Weir, who joins other artists on the Wretches & Jabberers

nationwide "movievents," which will include screenings of the film and live
panel discussions featuring Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette. Updates on
