LA Scoring Strings

Well this is just a quick blog post to say "Wow!"



These arrived last night and they are amazing. I'll go into more and more detail over the coming weeks.

Ima be a rapper 4 life!

Well I had an interesting week writing some hiphop tracks for a local artist in Dayton - they wanted NWA/Public Enemy style tune. I made quite a few for em, not sure yet which ones are being used but this is my favorite one, the whole thing is built from my favorite symmetric diminished which made it fun for me

Its 3rd in my player now, called "Groove Attitude", hope you enjoy it hehehe ;-)

I need a glock and a blunt with this tune, maybe I could be NWA honorarium?

What we've done (a beginning to a career part 2: my life with the film score cult)

I've done a lot of different music. Some better than others, but over the years my skills have grown in every area. Of course, my lack of focus has made it so I'm not great at anything, but kinda good at a lot of things. This is NOT the way to a career in the world of popular music (as a general term. An ambient album is never going to be "popular" no matter how many copies you sell). It has, however, given me a lot of tools at my disposal for doing something like, for example, film scoring.… Continue

So, here we go (a beginning to a career part 1: background and intro)

Recently I have begun in earnest to pursue a career in the world of film scoring. It's going to be a long journey, so perhaps keeping a blog here might be a good idea. People here might be interested in it, as well as have some suggestions for me (if I'm making a "wrong move", or an idea I have could be better), and those not as far along as me might learn from my mistakes and successes. In short: hello everyone! I hope we can be friends and learn from each other!



We'll start at the… Continue

We need it yesterday. (Composing for TV.)

Most of what I compose is for TV - usually promos for cable networks.



Here's a recent example that aired on TLC:



TLC's Father's Day Promo Campaign



TLC called me up with an emergency. They had purchased the rights to use this song, but not the RECORDING (that's a separate right) and they needed it to fit the standard 30 second format. It's a country song by Keith… Continue

Building False Studio Walls

Building studio false walls

Like many of you, I have a lot of instruments in my studio, and I love having them close by and ready to be played or recorded. But it really does create a lot of clutter, so I…
