Just some new stuff on the site:
video game music
Check out the gameplay footage from Gaming Age Thesis: In Which We Analyze the Benefits and Detriments of Various Gameplay Mechanics! I did the sound effects, too. The game was created at the 2013 Philly Game Jam, for which the theme was “ghosts of video games past.”
Op. Epic (Postlude to a Legend) – This new piece finishes the story that Prelude to a Legend started. Now all that’s left to write is the story itself!
orchestration / arrangement / transcription
I transcribed a Disney medley almost entirely by ear… it was quite a project – it took about 3 days to complete, and I probably worked on it for about 4 hours each day. You need to see the score to get an idea for the scope of this project… I referred to a piano/vocal arrangement to make sure I was getting the lyrics and vocal melody correct and to double-check some chords. I took some liberties with the piano, harp, and transitions between songs.
I’ve uploaded video footage from a couple past recitals; one solo performance of a Chopin Nocturne and a couple excerpts of a cellist’s college senior recital for which I accompanied some Beethoven and Shostakovich.
