I'm excited to launch my site, and as a composer who is starting out this is an incredibly exciting step. I'll be using this blog aspect of my site mainly for 2 things: 1) posting news about projects and pieces and such, and 2) for every once in a while I feel like posting something else, be it related to music at all or not.
First off I thought I'd post some article's written about the movie I'm doing the score for, Peter Hurd's The Control Group. It's been a really great process so far working with Peter and our Sound/Music Producer guy Micheal Teoli, (who I've linked his site along with Peter's in my collaborators page... and as essentially BRAND new person entering composition, it's been amazing to even be connected to a guy like Micheal who has worked on HOWARD SHORE's team for the score of LORD OF THE RINGS....(!!!!)... (that's 2 connections to LOTR now in one movie (Brad Dourif-Grima Wormtoungue!)) and he has been up to other incredible projects and has just released a new cd... let me say it dubs hard. ) But anyway I'll post some links of press for the movie, as more press for the movie is more press for me, which is for a newcomer like myself always good!
Word on the street about The Control Group:

Secondly I hope you all get a chance to enjoy the first piece of mine I've had the opportunity to be recorded. The Prelude in g minor for piano is a piece I had written as a compositional challenge from my instructor Jason Squinobal to utilize more Romantic harmony and structure in one of my pieces, while still retaining some of my stylistic idiosyncrasies. It alternates between harmonically dense slower sections and more clear textures in the faster ones, tied together with chromatic transitions underlined by broken chord arpeggiations. I was amazed to hear it played by the wonderful Therese Sutula, who played it phenomenally. I hope you enjoy it. The next recording of pieces won't come for awhile, but not that I have at least one audio file on here, and now that I'm wrapping up my work on the film I felt it was time to put the site up.
Thanks for checking my site/blog out, and stay posted for more!
Cheers and bis dann,
.Will post here about with updates about current works, music in general, likely many linguistic things, general thoughts, etc.
