Summer of Music - July 2011
Hey everybody, it’s been a while since I wrote in my blog and felt like I should get on here and write a little bit. Hopefully everyone has been doing great! I’ve been keeping busy with music…writing new music for my upcoming CD release! Also getting a lot of experience in the “Scoring for Picture” world…I’ve been working on new demo reels of my music so please check them out in the “Reels” section of my site! I also added a new “Poems” section to my site…check that out as well.
It’s been a hot and muggy summer so far but it is a nice change from the freezing cold! My ideal temperature would be 60-65 degrees year round! But..It is Minnesota so the weather is pretty unpredictable, ha-ha.
As I mentioned above…I am working on a new CD release. If you are a fan of film music (soundtracks) you know that the music on those CD’s is directly from the movie or video game. The CD release I’m currently working on is similar to those…only that the inspiration and direction of this is from my imagination. A soundtrack to my imagination if you can imagine that with me. I’m a constant daydreamer…always thinking about adventures I could be on and so fourth. I’ve been inspired by the video game music of Composer Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon) and Film Composer Brian Tyler (Fast Five, Battle: LA).
I’m looking to release this album in the fall so I will keep you updated as I go along!
I went to go see Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part. 2 on Friday Opening Day! What an Epic series that is. I’m a fan of J.K Rowling’s…here books are Imagination at its finest!! Check it out when you have a chance. If you haven’t been keeping up with it…watch them all and then go see the final showdown between Harry and Voldemort!
I’ve also been watching a lot of other films for scoring perspective. Getting the feel of how composers matched the music to the emotions being portrayed on the scenes…the small film scoring community is such a great experience for me…it’s really different than the pop world I’m so used to…it’s a challenge but I’m definitely enjoying myself!
“A soothing blend of Brian Tyler and Antonio Vivaldi's classical, with a mix of Bruno Mars pop and a bit of latin flare.”
