So work has been scarce lately and I've been trying to reinvent myself... again. I've decided to go into business with my friend Michael Worth who is an excellent composer and orchestrator. I am trying to get him to join up here. We have been researching and writing music for the video game market. It certainly is as competetive as other areas but the people seem to be less jaded and the whole vibe is just not as smarmy as the TV/Film industry. I'm sure my heart will be broken just the same:-) but it does seem more fun right now.
In any case, I have been spending more time with my old orchestration books and my copy of Platinum XP (while anxiously awaiting my copy of the Play upgrade:-) and doing some cues for a video game reel that Mike and I are putting together. Here's one example that I did recently. It's called "On the Beach."
I'd be interested in any comments you might have. It's been a few years since I did full blown orchestral pieces so my chops are a little rusty.
