Mezco Toys “Gomez” One:12 Animation
I was commissioned to write a hip-hop song with an edge that complemented the urban street nature of the animation produced by the amazing Alex Kropinak. Verbatim, I was asked to write hip-hop that had a vibe similar to Grandmaster Flash "Apache". Ultimately, the song wasn't used, but I'm very proud of it!
Rescore Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice had some incredibly dark scenes, and amazing music. The Nightmare Scene in particular had just the right edge without too much, but I wanted to give my hand at adding some darkness to it. I used low brass, organic tones from grand pianos, violin decorative techniques, and string bass, along with a Ligeti-style choir and an ominous analog synthesizer for this one.
Austin Blau “DIVINITY” (2018)
This is SUCH a cool record my incredibly talented drummer, Austin Blau, recorded. Austin plays drums and guitars on this record, and also wrote the lyrics, and composed all of the orchestral elements. Not to mention the fact that he engineered the whole thing! Did I mention Austin was 21 when he finished this record? 21 years old! I’m so proud of Austin, and I was very excited to do this work with him. It had been over 9 years since I had done vocals for anything (which was Binary Codes’ “SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF” album). I had fun doing vocals and getting some whacky guitar solos done for him! I highly recommend checking this record out!
