Transcriptions of Vexx

I’ve mentioned before how many listeners email me looking for sheet music for games I’ve written music for, and I just don’t have time to provide it all.  I usually write music directly into Pro Tools, so unfortunately there’s no book lying around of all the things I’ve composed.  Sometimes if I’m having live musicians…


I’m Still Alive!

Just stopped in to say I’m still alive!  Summer’s been busy so far with lots of house chores:  painting some rooms, (re)painting the deck, fixing some plumbing issues…  it eats up social media time in a hurry.   I’m still composing though!  The latest (and long-awaited) Pirate 101 update is now on the test realm, complete…


Academics

I’ve taught a Pro Tools: Editing and Mixing class at Cincinnati State for a few years now, and it really gets me thinking about how people approach audio.  Each of my students learns and thinks a little differently, and so I find myself constantly approaching a subject from a different angle…  which is great!  It…


Happy 2016!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season!  Mine was pretty busy visiting family and playing with my band…  And watching The Force Awakens!   I’m pretty sure John Williams’ Star Wars score is the reason I compose music today…  I have a picture of myself listening to the RECORD in headphones while sitting in a…


So long, summer!

How’s everybody doing?  I know most people enjoy the summer, but by about this time every year I’m ready for some cool air rushing past my face as I bike around the local trails.   The semester has started for my audio class at Cincinnati State, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to talk to real-life…

Announcing Second Spell: The Power Rises

I’ve finally finished the second track for my upcoming album:  The Lost Levels!  It’s titled Second Spell:  The Power Rises…  it should be giving you an idea where I’m going with the album.  All music has a story behind it (even if it’s just in the composer’s head!) and the story of The Lost Levels…


The Lost Levels response

First off: a big thanks to those who have taken the time to download The First Spell.  It’s not exactly flying off the shelves (-: but hopefully we’ll see some more response soon. The sheet music has had some downloads, but I haven’t heard from anyone (other than Hugues!) who’s attempted to play it.  Is…


Announcing “The Lost Levels”!

Over the years, I’ve had many requests for sheet music for the music I compose for games.  The problem is that music is owned by the companies who make the games, and they usually aren’t interested in making sheet music available.  So I’ve decided to make an album of all original music entitled “The Lost Levels” and…


I’m the Composer for ArtCraft Entertainment’s Crowfall!

I’ve been eager to announce this, but just now got clearance ahead of the official game announcement tomorrow (Feb. 24 2015)…  I am the composer for the new MMORPG from ArtCraft Entertainment: Crowfall!  The ArtCraft team is made up of some heavy hitters with credits like Shadowbane, Wizard 101, Pirate 101, Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, the Sims…
