Tricky melody for fantasy film

Posted on

This is a twisty melody to be used in a fantasy film. I’ve been working on this orchestration for a long time. I chose to limit myself to a string section, a few woodwinds, and only trumpets for brass. It was an interesting challenge figuring out how to make this small of a group sound […]

Energetic strings!

This piece of music was written for a friend that is adorable and has a ton of energy. I wrote the string part slower, and then resampled and sped it up, which created the Bollywood type of tone.

More flying music

Posted on

I’ve always wanted to fly, so I think that’s why i like all this floaty type of music. I wanted something emotional a little ambiguous and a little wrenching at the same time. This song is not in any particular key and is built off of fifths. If you listen closely, you’ll here woodwinds buried […]

I’m experimenting with new vs old writing techniques. I have a traditional classical and jazz background, but now I mostly produce beats for a hip hop label and tracks for an EDM label. This is a funky odd meter beat with a modern synth meets traditional orchestral brass and strings.

Remix #4

Posted on

For this remix, I took a pretty understated, quiet track and sped it up, and then used some cutting sounds to give it more energy. The bass sound is a combination of sounds from Rounds, by Native Instruments. I’m finding that its ability to combine digital and analog synthesis into one complex sound makes for […]

Remix #3

Posted on

This is a remix of a techno song that I made into more of a house track. I did most of this on the Maschine, which is something I’ve been wanting to do, but hadn’t gotten around to until now. It has some fantastic sounds in it, and is fun to finger drum on. I […]
