All right, here we go with another Grand Experiment!  Please pass the news along to anyone who might be interested and it’ll stand a better chance of being an ongoing thing.  Also, if you have any thoughts, ideas, or general feedback that would help these things be more useful or interesting to a greater number…


Announcing Sheet Music downloads!

I made a YouTube video explaining pretty much all this: You asked for it, and here it is!  Many people have emailed me over the years interested in sheet music from the game score, and many people are surprised when I tell them I don’t have any because the music production is all done digitally…


Flying Time!

Hi guys!  Lots going on and very little time to talk about it!   I’m leaving for Austin, TX next week for a quick jaunt to my old stomping grounds!  I used to work for a company called Acclaim Entertainment that had a development studio there, so I lived in the Lone Star State for a…


Summer Goings Ons

Happy Summer everyone!   As I type this I am finishing out the next Wizard 101 Musical Tour of the Spiral videos on MooShu.  I rambled on and edited it pretty heavily but could only get it down to 17:00.  Some listeners have emailed and said they like the long form in-depth detail-OCD nature of…


The Game is Afoot!

Still Going…

Haven’t gotten to finalize the next video yet, but I’m working on it – should be end of this week.   If only someone would have told me kids eat up a lot of time.  (-;   n


An Embarrassment of Somethings

In case you missed it, I posted a second Session Study for Wizard 101’s new level Empyrea, this time looking at some action music and some of the things I’m thinking about while writing it.  I’m really having a good time seeing the reactions to these videos so keep the comments and questions coming. I…


More Somethings

Something #1 In case you missed it, I released the first in what will become a series exploring my composition process on YT.  If you’re even remotely interested (and if not, why are you here?-) go check that out and be sure to leave a comment there (or here) on what you liked and didn’t…


Time to Announce Something!

A couple things actually.  (I know, I know: “Slow down, Nelson!  We can’t take this breakneck pace of information!”) Firstly:  the new Wizard 101 world has been teased announced released for testing released!  That’s right: as we speak, the new world EMPYREA is available to play from Kings Isle.  This also means this entire world’s music is on…
