My youth growing up in a 12th century Knight Templar castle; how I came to be the composer of the official music theme for the Seattle International Film Festival; my recent participation in the Producers Guild of America’s 51 hour film challenge; competing for a chance to score Star Trek: Discovery… all is revealed in this podcast interview I did hosted by Brand-Shea Mutala for TrekFm! The biggest Star Trek Fan website in the Alpha Quadrant. Click the image below to go listen to the interview!
Announcing the release of a passion project: a cover of the famous Star Trek Voyager theme title, performed on the legendary Minimoog Voyager synthesizer.
Excited to share that the film for which I wrote original Music AND created all the Sound Design was awarded the Honorable Mention out of the 10 finalists that screened at The Producers Guild of America's Make Your Mark 51 Hours Film Challenge! I had only 5 hours to compose a 5 min original score as well as making the entire sound design for the film (voice overs, foleys, special sounds FX etc…) It was so great to work with such a wonderful team and a big thank you to Blaine Gray for having me onboard! Actor / Producer Blaine Gray portrayed the villain “Grant Dillion” in the supernatural western I scored a couple years ago called Six Gun Savior. We connected last summer as he remembered the work I had done on Six Gun Savior. He proposed me to join his team for this competition and the rest is history! Of course I could count on the support of my lovely wife Jennifer during the event. What a fantastic night!
EXCITING NEWS!!! The sci-fi-thriller feature Simple Creature I scored is distributed by Indican Pictures / Lionsgate. The film was released nationwide on DVD and VOD July 25th! Three days before my birthday/anniversary. What a treat! Congratulations to director Andrew Finnigan, it was such a pleasure to collaborate with him on this film. The score also features Babyface's music director and guitarist luminary Michael Ripoll and the cello performances of Andrew Osano and some additional cello from my beautiful wife Jennifer, as well as some cool Moog Music Inc. analog synthesizer performances from myself :) Movie Soundtrack will soon be available as well! Stay tuned ;) You can check out the film's trailer on iTunes, here:
