Hey, y'all! I'm finally back again. It's been a hectic ... HECTIC past couple of months. Not a lot of sleep. But its all kind of winding down now, and I can finally get some more blog posts up.

I just finished scoring a 30-minute short film called "LACUNA" and now that its almost done with post (coloring and mixing) I can blog about the music! This was the most music I've written for one project to date. I also extended my practice of working a theme throughout the score since there was more time to let it grow and change.

So, without further ado ... SPOILER ALERT! ... have a listen!

Whole Foods Ad

Hey y'all. I know, I know ... it's been a minute since I've posted here. I've been busy! GET OFF MY BACK! No, seriously though, it's been non-stop. I've been working on this short film (which I'll be able to post about soon) and an animation with our friend, Eric Peters.

I was also working on this Whole Foods ad for their new Auto-Reload card. I was hired to do the editing and animation, but they also asked me to write the music for it. It needed a fun, up-beat pop song so it was a nice little break from what I usually write. The link to the youtube video is below (it's really low res for some reason) and the song is below that!

Let me know what y'all think!

Harry Potter Piano Solo

Hey y'all! So, in the spirit of the premiere of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, I sat down at the piano and worked out a piano solo of one of my favorite cues from the Harry Potter soundtracks. The song is titled, "The Story Continues" and it's from the Goblet of Fire soundtrack.

I love this song because it takes a familiar theme and uniquely arranges the notes to give a vibe that something dark is coming.

Let me know what you think!

My LA...

Hey y'all. So, I recently worked on this quick one minute short film from the same Producer of "Sati." It was for a short film competition through NewFilmmakersLA. She asked me to edit it and score it.

The idea was to submit either a one minute or 2-4 minute short film that expresses why you love Los Angeles. The short placed among the top 22.

At first I had a hard time with writing the score because I wasn't quite sure what direction to take it in. Then one day I got frustrated and just deleted everything I was working on and started over. This is what came of it...

Hey y'all! I'm back again. I know it's been quite a while since I've posted anything. I just finished two projects, and I'm working on a few more at the moment. So I'll try to keep this blog more fresh as the days go by.

This first post will be about the (short) documentary that I just scored. The film is titled, "Jerry" and it's about a former executioner in Richmond, VA. I had some fun exploring different sounds with this score. Also, I am obviously going to (SPOIL!) the entire film throughout the post in case you're concerned.

Hey y'all! So, I'm back! Had a scary week last week but all is good now and I can post and post and post...

Today's post is about a short film I just scored. I was hired to edit the film but I needed to have some kind of music to edit to for most of it, given the material. So, I set out to write a temp score. I figured it wouldn't be a waste of time because (A) I would learn some techniques/instruments (the story is based in India) and (B) at the very least, I could post the music here, regardless.

Well, they enjoyed the music so much that they're keeping it. So that's fun!

I'm going to let you guys hear the music in its entirety and explain where they belong in the film (so ... SPOILER ALERT! ). Sit back and enjoy the ride!

Another Failed Supertease Cue...

So, here's another supertease cue I wrote a while back that never ended up anywhere. The editor went for an epic supertease so he asked me to write something that was ... well, epic! The producers ended up wanting more of a "rock" vibe to it instead of epic orchestral.

This one has some of the sound effects from the supertease mixed in as used them as elements in the music. Let me know what you think...

Just Moved In...

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. My wife and I have been full force for weeks (moving from our apartment into our new house)! I haven't written anything yet as I just finished setting up my studio (in the house) today but I forgot that I did write this one cue a couple weeks ago and never posted it.

It's just a dramatic underscore cue so it might be a little repetitive. I should be up and running with some new music soon. We'll see. I'm totally stoked about this studio I've set up. Once it's all "COMPLETELY" finished, I'll upload a picture (with maybe a new cue?) for y'all to see!

This one's called, "It's Not A Concussion."

(ALSO! The image above is a drawing of the house we just bought. It was drawn by none other than Eric Peters! Check out his blog about it here among many other awesome drawings!)

New 8-Bit Blog...

Hey y'all. So, I finally went through with it and made a separate blog for all of my 8-bit cues. It's awesomely titled:
"Doctor 8-bit - OR: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The 80s"

So, go check it out and drop some comments!
