Part of his score to The War (1994) was used in the trailers to both American Beauty (1999) and Life as a House (2001).
Regarding hearing a remix of his score to American Beauty (1999): "I was flattered and horrified. We don't own our own music, it's typically owned by the companies that hire you."
Tuned percussion (e.g. marimba, chimes) often plays a part in his scores, figuring especially prominently in American Beauty (1999).
