And for once the writers are correct: Patton's latest release, 'A Perfect Place,' actually is an original motion picture soundtrack (for an independent short of the same name). Patton was so eager for his first proper soundtrack that the score is almost twice as long as the film itself, an otherwise silent, black and white crime caper. Patton originally met the filmmaker, Derrick Scocchera, through frequenting his laserdisc shop in San Francisco, and kept in touch with him when Scocchera closed the shop to work for Francis Ford Coppola. Eventually Scocchera founded Fantoma Films, of which Patton says he's a fan. "To be honest," he admits, "I didn't even need to see the script; I didn't even need the backstory."
The result, 'A Perfect Place,' sounds, well, cinematic.
