I’m working on a new electronic album for late 2020, and a lot of my recent inspiration comes from the film soundtrack for the movie Gone Girl. I grew up with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, so this has been fun to go all analog synths, eurorack, and Morphagene to create these mysterious emotion […]
This piece started as an orchestral rescore for a few scenes from A Close Shave, a Wallace and Gromit film. I have repurposed it to be used as a library track for any kind of animation or animated film.
This soundtrack was written for the film Life of a Doll, which is a metaphor for the COVID 19 quarantine in NYC happening now. I wrote the music for orchestra and some experimental electronics that I created myself using Straylight and Kontakt with experimental delays and freezes. My interpretation of the film is that the […]
This soundtrack was written for the short film Love At First Sight. Both Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 were the biggest influences, and what the director was asking for. I wrote a synthwave influenced track using analog Moog synths and Eurorack.
This is a calm groovy piece of music to help you chill out, relax, meditate, or study. I wrote this for film and tv. Most of the instruments are Omnisphere with some real kalimba samples making the main melody.
This piece was inspired by the video game music for Dead Space. It contains ambient and futuristic elements for a dystopian sci-fi game I’m currently working on. I combined analog synths with artificial intelligence patches using Reaktor from Native Instruments.
This is a piece I wrote for the film Gone Bella Gone. This is action movie music that is suspenseful and very intense which hits hard with dramatic drums and synths. This is epic and suspenseful background music made using a combination of drums, Eurorack analog synths, and hardware digital synthesizers.
This is an IDM style electronic piece I wrote for a film that was a blend of action and crime drama. I used mostly Eurorack and Microkorg synths with a Moog DFAM as my drum sound source. The bass is a square wave being heavily modulated as the music plays by a Make Noise Maths […]
This music was written for the film Gone Bella Gone, by Paris Homes films. It has action, crime, and drama elements. Two tracks are here because there are two different versions of the same overall piece of music with different emotional goals. We were looking to build the tension and suspense. You can watch the […]
