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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
