Meet Gary Calamar. He's many things: A DJ, an author, a recording artist and a music supervisor for films and TV.

He has been very successful choosing atmospheric and expressive music for shows like Six Feet Under and True Blood with showrunner Alan Ball, as well as Weeds, Entourage, Dexter and others.
