music

I'm moving in the direction of timeless, instrumental music
that has no time signature.

With a professional musician/producer for a father, a mother who trained in classical violin as a youth, a grandmother who trained in classical piano, and a grandfather who was a classically-trained singer and music minister, time signatures should have been encoded in my DNA. But, despite years of piano lessons, and having a heavy background in music, twenty-four hour exposure to it (even helping to record sessions at the studio), and an appreciation for many different styles, when I started writing music for my film ideas at sixteen, my sense of time was, shall we say, cryptic. Music melded with film formed its own sense of time for me. I have matured significantly since then, but the soundscores I write remain a matter of conversation with the image.

Though I'm familiar with the works of many composers for film, at the beginning, due my interest in horror, I was heavily influenced by the scores of late ‘60s and early ‘80s European horror cinema (Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, etc), which will be obvious in the earlier tracks.

For those who are curious, I used to write in GarageBand but have switched over to Logic.

Below are a few soundtracks and some cover music I've done as well.

Kafka
Nearly the entirety of the soundscapes used in Kafka's Supermarket (with the exception of the end credits theme and a replay of "Haste In Slow Motion"") along with the original score from Hard Drive. Released December 9, 2018.

Nausea
A mixed media audioscape to accompany the catastrophic results of distilled time and industrial decay, titled after the third track that acts as an abstract adaption of the Jean-Paul Satre novel of the same name. Inspired by the xerox collage scene of the late 1980s. Released July 13, 2018
