Fly on the Wall – Walkthrough Series

It’s been a while since the last tutorial! I decided to hit “record” while creating a track this time.  These videos are totally raw, and give an inside look at my creative process, “dirty dishes” and all! Episode 1 Join me from the beginning of the sketch. See how long you can stick with me bashing away at various chords as I try to navigate the infinite possibilities! Episode 2 In this episode, I expand the orchestration and ideas to try and transform the first half into something that might actually be listenable!


Drone Wars!

I had the privilege of scoring this amazing video by Corridor Digital over the last week and a bit! This is probably one of the more mammoth tasks that I have taken on in recent times, but I loved every second of it!  As an FPV quadcopter pilot myself, this whole project was right up my alley!  I enjoyed the opportunity to play around with John Williams’ famous themes and putting my own spin on them!  Enjoy 🙂 You can listen to the score below.



Sky Passage / Berlin Strings

I recently had the pleasure of composing a demo for Orchestral Tools new library, Berlin Strings.  I had such fun using this library when creating “Sky Passage” and it is obvious that Orchestral Tools have put huge amounts of work into the product! The piece can be purchased here if you like, I hope you enjoy it! http://blakus.bandcamp.com/track/sky-passage You can also find a video walk through of this piece, including my opinions on Berlin Strings here:
