"Music is there for everybody. It's a river we can all put our cups into, and drink it, and be sustained by it." - John Williams

"You saw things in the film that I didn't, and ran with them. You built on some of the suggestions I made and went off in a completely different, but much much better direction. Your score helped to maintain my film's proper dramatic and emotional focus and played an important and conscious role in people's enjoyment of my film."
- Filmmaker Joshua Gizelt, "The Early Mixes"

Experienced, Versatile Composer

"After collaborating with Christy Carew on both narrative and documentary films, I can say that she is a talented film composer with an uncanny understanding of story, whether it is fictional or true. She can take a simple idea about character, story or concept, and turn it into music that lifts the film to a whole new experience."

-  Filmmaker Mikiko Sasaki, "January", "8 AM", "Story of A Businesswoman"

NBC's Hit show "The Blacklist" - Through 5 Alarm Music, I had the honor of custom composing the tango pieces you hear in this clip. The dance was choreographed to my music. The Blacklist featuring Mariana Parma and Dardo Galletto, dancing Argentine Tango. www.marianaparma.com

Official "America the Beautiful" arrangement I did through 5 Alarm Music for The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year. It was used as part of the main title for The Purge: Anarchy and also used in all three advertising campaigns worldwide. This track has also been featured on America's Got Talent. 

This award-winning short film, written and directed by Alison Marek, was funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and won a Director's Award at the Hearts & Minds Film Festival. Starring Tannis Hanson and Luke DiLiberto. Cinematography by Robert Poswall. Music by Christy Carew. Production Design by Frederica Nascimento.

I composed the music for this action short film. A note from director Jonas Stolpe: "A fearless masked figure makes his first appearance. I made this not-for-profit fan film because I'm a die-hard fan who has loved comic books, movies and this character for as long as I can remember. We shot this film over a single night and worked our asses off to make it as good as possible." 

Through SoundCat productions, I scored this Dick's Sporting Goods commercial in 2012. "Former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis takes viewers on a tour of Gifts That Matter at DICK'S Sporting Goods, and shares a gift that mattered to him, in his life."
