Welcome to my webpage. Please feel free to click on the links below to listen to my demos.
"Introduction" - The idea with this piece was to evoke a creepy, forboding kind of tone...very ominous. Strings and horns are present, with me playing an Indonesian drum
"Empires Within Empires" - This is a short, simple piece done with string quartet, it's intended to invoke a an ancient, folkish feel
"The March Of Technology" - A 10-piece with strings, brass and woodwinds. It accompanies a documentary scene showing the stages of technology throughout the years.
"The Dream Of Nebuchadnezzar" - Showcasing the strings and woodwind, this is a 3/4 tune using sus chords to lend it a dreamlike feel
"The Edicts Of Diocletian" - This tune relies heavily on harmonic minor chord structures to give it a dark tone. Also uses rhythm for a slightly more militaristic effect
"The St. James Infirmary" - A minor blues with a shuffle feel, featuring the vocals of John Peel
"I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (In Perfect Harmony)" - Everyone's favourite Coke jingle!
"Chime" - Written to accompany a commercial for a local martial arts school. Uses indonesian drum, 8-string bass, and guitar harmonics for a somewhat exotic sound.
"Deceit" - A long synth piece intended for use with a local documentary, evokes a sci-fi kind of feel
"When I Fly" - an original tune written for a songwriting contest. Vocals by Lisa Triggs.
"Time For A Kiss" - also written for the songwriting contest, this is more of a jazz-based number with some basic rhythm section accompaniment.
"Harlequin Hero" - originally composed by someone else, I was asked to do a rearrangement of the song, which included writing a melody for the verses and giving it a new intro.
"One For My Baby (One More For The Road)" - Just close your eyes and you can smell the gin and regrets.
"Wandering Stars" - A version of the Portishead song, complete with horn section and stuff.
"Theme From Dr. Who" - A somewhat heavier take on theme to Dr. Who
"Circuitous" - My lame attempt at a techno piece, made for a friend's video project.
