I recently completed the score for Linh Ngo’s short film, “Killing Me Softly”. Cole Jenkins (colejenkinsmusic.com) and I teamed up to score the short.
It was a fun score to compose, as Linh gave us complete creative freedom. So I crafted a haunting, yet lyrical and mysterious score featuring light strings, eerie voices, and simple oboe melodies carefully crafted around deep electronic tones! Below is a preview.
The film will be hitting the short film circuit in the near future, and hopefully Youtube thereafter.
I will post it when it is up.
I recently sat down with the editor of the gaming news website Toggle Crouch, where he picked my brain about games, music, and my career.
It is a shorter interview, but gives a very good picture of what I do and what my favorite parts of being a game composer are.

I have been writing a lot of music lately, although much of it won’t see the light of day until the projects are released. When will that be? I have no clue! haha
So in the mean time, I have been working on music that allows me to experiment with some new software, as well as explore some orchestral techniques in the process. Here is a new track (licenseable/for sale I might add!) of some of that new stuff. Hoping to release more in the near future!
Reminds me of fantasy dwarves somehow… Been watching too much Lord of the Rings or something.
I have been working with the author of The Gathering Dead for awhile now, creating a few scores for his trailers. This is some of the music from the upcoming trailer!
You can hear the motif for the undead at the end, the minor thirds clashing with the major thirds throughout the last build! I am primarily shooting for a tonal score with hints of dissonance, as opposed to an entirely dissonant or effected score.
Hoping they can put together a full movie/film release in the future. Would love to compose hours of this kind of stuff.
It features my dynamic, orchestral, blood-pumping score! You can hear ap preview of it below:
Definitely a little Skyrim influences in there :D Although I put my own spin on it too of course!
Here is a link to some of the gameplay! It you like Flight Control games and Viking Hordes, this is a perfect game!
Mecho Wars HD has been released on the Google PLAY (Android) Store. It contains over 40 minutes of original music by me!
Principal composition and production took place from September to December of 2011, so it is actually not one of my newer scores, although it is still one of my favorites!
