I finally finished recording my live session players for my Irish/Orchestral tracks I did for a travelog commercial promoting tourism for Ireland.

You can find both of the versions here on my NG Audio Portal:

If any of you are interested in checking out the scores (sheet music/notation) of these tracks you can find them here on a post I made on my website. You can also check out the MOCK-UP versions (virtual instruments) of these tracks as well:

Enjoy!

New Irish/Orchestral Sountrack music! Just in time for St. Patricks's Day!



Here's the final mix from the studio. There were some intonation issues that night because the piano was out of tune slightly and we had get everyone to tune to it. Not too big of an issue, but considering our 40 minute time frame to record I think it went very well.

Here's the audio:

Here's the full score if you want to check it out:

The timings and the lines on the score were for the punches and streamers to sync my conducting to the video. This method is primarily used when recording music that is more free or rubato feeling.

The music may seem a bit dull because it kind of stays in the same harmony for the most part, but sometimes this is what is required of us to write for a scene in a film. I've seen film scores that are literally just two notes on the piano and harp for 3 minutes *COUGH*LOST*COUGH* anyways... It was actually quite difficult to figure out how to make something very sad and depressing but still have it be uplifting and hopeful. I think sneaking in that lydian chordscale and subtly putting in a subdominant chord without being too abrupt worked pretty well too.

I don't have the video up yet, but I will upload it soon on my YouTube channel:

 Some new recordings from the film scoring studio!



Hey guys, I just finished editing music for a trailer of game for iOS (iPhone/iPad) called "Dungeon Plunder." It's really an awesome game! I found myself addicted to it while I was playtesting it.

We also released the official soundtrack on iTunes! Check it out here:

Sweet! My entry in the MAC 13 Orchestral made it up to 2nd place! Another banner to add to my collection. Hope there will be more contests for me to take on, it's been awesome to be part of these contests with so many great composers!

Woo hoo! Placed in another contest!



This is a official announcement trailer that I made, and scored music to. The music in the trailer isn't the in-game music but some of the music at the end is. Anyways here it is:

We're going to release it on Steam, and we are currently accepting playtesters! Please support us on Steam by voting for our game to be accepted!

This Fall/Winter I've had a great opportunity to have some of my full orchestral film scores performed and recorded with a live symphonic orchestra!

I will be working on mixes in Pro Tools 10 HD and get some stuff posted up here. This is a Pro Tools Session for one of my Film Scoring Sessions. Get hyped! The recordings turned out great! Now it's time to hit the mixing board and get to work!
