I hope you’ve been enjoying the Vile Mile OST! It’s been such an amazing feeling to get such positive feedback from so many of you. You guys really know how to make a man happy! I’m glad that my music has put a smile on your face and can inspire you.
Today I’d like to introduce you to a brand new song called, Overworld. This song is about adventure, discovery, and travelling. Specifically, the type of adventure I’m referring to is the classic RPG games like Final Fantasy and the feeling you get traveling to a new town or game area. In combination with those themes this song was also inspired by my friend Alison, who always challenges me to be better than I was yesterday, and trying to find a sound that could capture the awesomeness of her creations. I by no means think this song does justice to Alison’s art but it was the starting point for it all.
Here’s a brand new tune I created called, Taking Control. I made it to help me deal with taking control of my life and the reality of being responsible for my actions, inactions, the good, and the bad. Every time I get angry I need to examine that moment and make a conscious effort to learn from that experience and take responsibility for my negative actions. The same is true for every time I’m having a great day at work, in the studio, or being around people I love. In those moments of pure happiness are lessons about yourself as well. Examine those good moments and take responsibility for those too. By maximizing the amount of happiness in your life and taking stock in every situation you find yourself in you can optimize your reality to be exactly the way you intend it to be. It’s as easy as taking control.
Here’s a video of my friend Oceantann using my new song Cute And Fun And Fun and Cute for her weekly instagram series, Whiteboard Wednesdays. In this video she draws the Disney Princess, Elsa. A very fitting character given the soundscape the song provides. Enjoy watching her do what she loves to do most! Cheers!
This song began as an idea I had for a short film I’m scoring for, but unfortunately it was rejected. The first idea was just the raw piano, so I added a few different strings to see if I could pull harder on the strings of your hearts. This is the end result. Enjoy!
We’re done recording vocals for the new Fire With Fire track, ‘Bucktooth’. Unlike the last track, ‘Tyrannosaurus Wreck‘, we’re mixing this tune ourselves so it’s going to be a little bit before we’re comfortable sharing it you guys. In the meantime we’d like to give you SOMETHING to chew on, so here’s a video of one of the TWO solos in the track. I hope you enjoy it!
Another day in the office means another dance with the muse. Here’s what’s left after five hours of hard work. A song trying to get inside your head and hit the switch responsible for dwelling on negative shit. Hopefully these vibrations of sound can enter your ears, rattle your mind loose, and get you started on a path of practicing gratitude and realizing that everything is, in fact, alright.
I asked you guys for some input on Facebook to help me custom create a song. This one was inspired by a few things. The first being the request by my friend, Katie, to do something ‘Superhero’-y and ‘comical’. The second would be watching my cat, Yuna, try and fail so many times in one day. There was so much herp. So I combined classical elements with a whimsical and comical twist. I hope you get the visualization of your favourite animal in your life just being a silly all day while you listen along.
