Invention in D minor

Goodbye

Wanna make someone cry? Its too easy. All you need is a bell-tone drone, solitary minimalist piano, some wet strings, and a french horn. Then add a synth bass drop for heartbreak, a waterphone for heartache, and voila!

John Williams' score for the film Jaws is unforgettable. This is a cue I wrote, re-scoring one of the scenes to see how much it changed the mood of the movie. I tried to capture the awe that such a giant shark as the one depicted in the film would inspire.

Nocturne in D Flat


video

This is a piece that I wrote for my sister Emma for Christmas this year (2014). It is a nocturne for cello and piano in D flat major, which according to my friend and cellist in the recording, Quinn Boyack, is a nasty key for cello! But on the piano, its as rich as chocolate.
