ASCAP Members Muse provided not only music for all three Twilight films, but also the inspiration for the books, according to the author.

Peter Himmelman

Singer-songwriter and ASCAP member Peter Himmelman is a recording artist, composer, performer and the creative force behind the live Internet video show, Furious World (www.furiousworld.com). He wanted to find a creative way to make a point that music has value and that music creators deserve to get paid. So, with ASCAP's blessing, he harnessed his own artistic sensibility and came up with some striking short films in collaboration with film director Jim Hershleder that cleverly express the songwriter's viewpoint, and that are rich with both imagination and meaning.

"A lot of people think ASCAP is some big monolithic organization, but it isn't," says Himmleman. "ASCAP is a collective of individual songwriters and composers in existence to make sure we don't get left behind when businesses make money from our music."

This video is the first in a series. Stay tuned for more Peter Himmelman videos in the coming weeks.

Peter Himmelman's new album, The Mystery and The Hum, will be released on September 14. Click here to listen to four songs from the upcoming album.
