Soundtrack

Soundtracks were one of the main reasons I started writing music. I’ve worked on a few video game soundtracks, scored one short film, and score video game trailers and other short YouTube clips in my spare time.

Tooth and Nail

June 24th, 2013

Two weekends ago I acted as Music Supervisor and Composer for a film entered into the 48 Hour Film Fest.

For those of you not familiar with the Film Fest, it’s a competition that happens in cities across the world. Film teams draw a genre from a hat, and then are given a character and a line that must be incorporated into their 4-7 minute film. Each team has only 48 hours from finding out their genre and line to turning in a final product. Read the rest of this entry »

48 Hour Film Fest

June 17th, 2013

This last weekend I acted as music supervisor, recording engineer, composer, and performer for a film entered into the 48 Hour Film Fest. The genre we drew was Western so I partnered with my friends in Pay the Devil and Of the North, using some originals from each band as well as new music written for the short film. The writing and recording was a blast and everything turned out well. I’m incredibly proud of how the music integrates into the film, and I really think the film crew, writers, actors, directors, did an amazing job.

The film, “Tooth and Nail” premieres this Thursday at the Oriental Theater at 7 pm. You can see it and the rest of the entries for $10.

Lyst – Sector 1 Music

September 20th, 2012

I began composing music for an independent video game called Lyst, which is a tribute to the style of the Myst games. Lyst is darker, taking place in an abandoned experimental facility on an asteroid hurtling towards the sun. The player awakes not remembering much about their circumstances, and must piece together clues to escape in time. Read the rest of this entry »

Fatal Frame

May 4th, 2012

An FX, samples, and drums based soundtrack to the trailer for Fatal Frame. Sounds come from the True Strike Tension pack for Kore Player, and a few other various sample packs.

Silent Hill

April 1st, 2012

A new soundtrack to the classic horror/survival game, Silent Hill. Orchestral sounds are provided by EWQL Symphonic Gold, electronics from Absynth, and a few bass tracks were recorded with my trusty Fender Precision Deluxe.

All You Can Eat – Medley

June 6th, 2011

Medley of music used for All You Can Eat. The music aims to capture the extraordinarily outdated style and thinking of the film’s characters through 80s synth pop and spaghetti western dramatic music.

All You Can Eat – Title Theme

June 6th, 2011

The over-the-top spaghetti western/80s glam metal and pop theme to the equally ridiculous film about a modern man with outdated fashion and delusional dreams of being a hot dog eating champion.

Halo Wars

February 28th, 2011

A few years ago there was a competition to score the Halo Wars video game trailer. I didn’t enter at the time, but I decided to finally make some music for it anyway. Here’s my orchestral/electronic score rendered using EWQL Symphonic Gold, NI Kore Player, and NI Kontakt Player in Sonar 8.5

Project Wish – Lonely Night

April 18th, 2007

This piano trio evokes the feeling of emptiness and lonliness. Although many of the themes are minor and depressing, there is a bittersweet quality to the music as if the time alone is introspective and relaxing.

Project Wish – Action/War

March 29th, 2007

Percussion, brass, WAR! This piece is designed to rev the player up for some truly epic battles. It’s tough to think of better music to listen to while charging into battle with a bunch of friends and allies.
