Video: Mathis Young enjoyed his banking job. But he aspired to be out on his own, running his own company. That desire led him to an unlikely place. Now his job comes with four wheels — and four legs.

Project background: The Soundtrack Project is an eight-part multimedia project I created to team symphony composers with local business owners in Memphis, Tennessee. The idea was to fashion unique vernacular scores for each video by allowing the composer to engage with each subject and experience aspects of their industry firsthand. The videos were housed at, adpated for a half-hour PBS special, and played with live accompaniment at a special Memphis Symphony Orchestra concert.
