I've added three newly written fantasies, with the theme autumn.
The first one is arranged for oboe and a harp whilst the other for english horn and organ.
The first fantasie, called "What I saw today" is a scenic description in music.
What I saw was thousands of leaves falling of the trees outside my window and blowing of in a storm.
Dark clouds blew in over the lake nearby and the waves battered against the beach.
The "Autumn Scenes" fantasie is inspired… Continue

Check out my newest composition, my rendition of Ave Maria. It was commissioned by my good friend Mario Pearson, Director of Music at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Kansas City, Missouri. His schola cantorum is singing it in this recording.

Short piece where I tried to use as much of EWQL as possible without my (2gb RAM) computer going up in flames.
Which it almost did.
The piece is quite filmic and it's not part of any suite or any other of my concertos.

I've had this piece up already, but without percussions and bassline, so I uploaded this finished version now with all instruments.
The story behind this is a journey I made to Minsk in Belarus. I stayed there for a month with my girlfriend who's from Minsk. When I was making this piece I thought about things I had witnessed there, old people thrown out on the street due to the lack of pension in this country. One selling her shoes to afford food.
Belarus is probably the only nation,… Continue

This is as I pointed out, not a true funeral mass but a piece for a opera I'm working with.
This piece takes place at the funeral of the character Corzdor and angels sing out their grief and try to comfort his friends as they give his spirit to the gods.
I made this with symphonic choirs and symphonic orchestra by EWQL.
In the holy mists of the Moonshine Cathedral
Corzdor the Brave will forever rest
In the celestial skies, he… Continue

First of all, excuse me for my horrible latin! I hope I made a text that doesn't have a million grammatical errors. But if there are, please tell me. I'm talking about a choralpiece I recently uploaded, it's actually not a real choralpiece but a part of an opera I'm working with.
In the opera the major god is an entity called The Blind Angel, or The Blindfolded Angel. This piece is thought to occur in a cathedral setting. Although, that's only a thought.
I made it with EWQL's… Continue

I only dabble with composition; I'm primarily an arranger, specialising in strings, but you have to keep re-inventing yourself to keep working (and earning) so I'm looking at a library music project. I've done a lot of arranging work for a UK library music company and I want to pitch an idea to them - an album of string moods with contemporary beats, maybe offering 2 mixes (with and without beats). So my rough mixes are work in progress (imaginatively entitled track 1, 2 and 3). My advice to… Continue

After completing my mentorship last year, I started looking into ways to broaden the spectrum of the kinds of projects I was a part of. I began networking with people working in the video games industry, and also put some energy into seeing if I could become involved in doing sound/music for theater. The scene in Toronto is excellent, with a lot of bigger theaters like Tarragon and Soulpepper putting out excellent and challenging material every year. In January, I got hired to do sound design… Continue

I've uploaded a five minute improvisation of me playing piano, and then playing clarinet on that.
Sadly I'm no pro in recording so it's a bit of digital distortion, but the message came through.
Have never done a improv-recording like this before.
