I compose video game music full time these days. I work for a company called SomaTone Interactive, based in California. My life is fun and full of music :) If anyone has any tips or advice or anything to say to me, I would like to read your comments!

Hey John, how are you. I have been busy and just signing in after a long while. Just listened to your new "Action" piece....sounding good! A great amount of musical growth has occurred! Hey, if you have a Facebook let me know.

So am I! :D I have been saving for years to afford all of this!

Hehe. Well it has cost alot of money! And to be honest, Hollywood Strings has been my best investment since my computer, when it comes to orchestral libraries! Also, I've been looking at other libraries for choirs, and found Liberis and Requiem Pro by Tonehammer. You should look into those. They seem even better than Symphonic Choirs!

Thanks alot John! :D

Yeah I scored a private fake trailer for LOTR that my buddy did. He wanted that theme in there, but still with some originality to it. :)

I used EWQL Hollywood Strings, EWQL Storm Drum, EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Platinum (with Pro XP) and EWQL Symphonic Choirs for this piece, and all the other pieces as well, except of course not the choir, for the pieces that had none. ;)

Great music man! You have true talent! Your sense of harmony is amazing and I love the way you change keys. Cudos!

very cheery and yet epic and tells alot of story!
imo it sounds very professional as-well!
