"It is often the most minimalistic work that carries the greatest emotional weight. I like to think of it like magic - the performance of magic is often so wonderful, although, behind the scenes the secret is always simple. Magic, like music, takes…"

"A beautiful piece of relaxing "smooth jazz" island music. It really took me back to growing up with my grandma, as we would always relax to this type of music while she and my (now deceased) grandfather read the Sunday paper. Bright,…"

Accretion Disk... (and more)

Hey Everyone, I've been quite busy. I've composed 4 pieces in the last week, one of which I'm more proud of than the others. Although, I will include all of them that I have completed. My most inspired piece in my humble opinion is Accretion Disk, telling the story of the formation of an accretion disk (hence the name) in outer space. Inspired, in part, by Interstellar, although I haven't familiarized myself…See More

Creatures of the Night

So this last weekend I was very sick with a cold/flu. During my fever, and as a result of being inside alone for several days, I hallucinated some very interesting creatures, and had some bizarre dreams. This piece is my exposition of that experience. Enjoy! Thank you all for your critiques and comments! I hope to be able to spend some time on the forums again soon. https://app.box.com/s/u02egon2i7ew682ewdxpjabf6lac89llSee More
