Swallowed

April 9th, 2012

One of my favorites but an overall lesser known song from Bush, “Swallowed” was a lot of fun to arrange for quartet. The original has some interesting tertiary harmonies which I extended in some parts of the arrangement.

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.

I arranged Florence and the Machine’s “Cosmic Love” for the Echelon String Quartet and they have since added it to their regular repertoire. This video comes from a Halloween themed event called the Barn Owl Ballyhoo in October of 2011.

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 The music aims to capture the extraordinarily outdated style and thinking of the film’s characters through 80s synth pop and spaghetti western dramatic music.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The over-the-top spaghetti western/80s glam metal and pop theme to the equally ridiculous film about a modern man with outdated fashion and delusional dreams of being a hot dog eating champion.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

Music Box

May 17th, 2007

A custom playback unit coded in PD combined with a cello, a used speaker, and one home-built transducer all came together for this piece. It’s terribly unfortunate that I lost the majority of the working code for this project before securing a recording Luckily, I was able to find this recording of a test run.

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.

February 5th, 2007

This is just one of many Project Wish pieces which are really just a rethinking of the main theme. I laced a chromatic wedge into the Project Wish Motive and changed the tempo, time signature, key signature, some harmonic progressions, and form to create an almost entirely new piece.
