Topic: Offer: Composer, Available for Scoring Over Summer or BRAWL

Hey everyone! 
For those of you who remember me, hello again!  And for those who don’t, hello for the first time!  It’s been a good long while since I’ve been active on here.  I’m down in Southern California pursuing a Bachelor of Music Composition while in University and definitely leaning towards film scoring (though it’s technically a classical composition degree). 

This summer I’m mostly doing odd jobs, some part time stuff, and music off and on as I prepare for my senior year in uni.  Something I’d like to spend some time on is working on some short films; animation or otherwise.  So I’m offering to, if time allows, score some projects for y’all!  As I am relatively busy with everything else, I’ll have to be somewhat picky on what I’m willing to score, so please don’t take it personally if I’m unable to work on your project.  If it’s something I’m interested in, and time willing, I’d love to work with you though. 
I’ll also try and make myself available the week of BRAWL for scoring films during that. 

As a rule of thumb, I’d like to be involved as early in the process of the film as I can be, but really I can’t score anything until I actually have a fully edited picture.  The more ‘locked’ the picture is, the better.  I should also clarify that I won’t recreate any pre-existing music if it’s not in the public domain, I’ll only create new material. 

Here’s some examples of some things I’ve been working on.  My apologies for the wall of links...whatever you’re interested in hearing, give it a click! There’s a large variety of stuff. 
I composed, orchestrated, and conducted (when applicable) for all of these examples.   


Film Score Examples:
(the three live orchestra feature film links are different cues from the same student feature film that I wrote and recorded music for; the other two links are VST samples written for student short films)
Feature Film - Cue "Just Shut Up" (live orchestra)
Feature Film - Cue “Give Thanks” (live orchestra)
Feature Film - Cue "End Credits" (live orchestra)
Short Film - End Credits - Quirky Elevator Jazz Style (VST/samples)
Short Film - End Credits - Sarcastic Orchestral Waltz (VST/samples)


Ambient /Textural Video Game Samples:
(these ones were created for in-class projects, essentially mock-scoring video games that don’t exist..they give good examples of some more textural writing, as well as highly stylized like space or western.  All of these use VSTs/Samples, nothing is live)
Western Theme, Heroic Version
Western Theme, Ambience Version
Space Ambience, Menu
Space Ambience, Exploration
Space Ambience, Death
Arctic Tundra Ambience, Exploration
Arctic Tundra Ambience, Ice Cave
Arctic Tundra Ambience, Underwater
Horror Ambience, General
Horror Ambience, Chase
Synth Jazz, Intro
Synth Jazz, Energetic
Synth Jazz, Outtro


Chamber Work Samples (Live Performances):
In Pursuit of Light and Space (live brass quintet)
Aurora Ascending (live solo piano piece)
Terra: Lutum Draco (live string quartet)


I’d absolutely welcome feedback on any tracks you listen to.  If you’d like to reach out about working on anything together, or if you’d be interested in something for BRAWL, you can forum message me here or send me an email at [email protected] 

Thanks for listening!
