In 2021, Fisher collaborated with the renowned cross-over string quartet ATLYS and Jeff Montalvo (Seven Lions) in arranging string quartet covers of EDM songs by Seven Lions for performances at Red Rocks Amphitheater (SOLD OUT) and The Gorge Amphitheater. Fisher’s arrangements featuring ATLYS were then recorded and released by Ophelia Records in the album titled OPUS. In 2015, Fisher received the Jon Vickers Film Scoring Award for his score to the 1916 silent film “The Return of “Draw” Egan by William S. Hart.

The LOC version of the score had its European premiere at the 2019 Pordenone Silent Film Festival (Le Giornate del Cinema Muto).
