The Planets: Reimagined

Introducing, The Planets: Reimagined. A genre-expanding, big band spin on the classic symphonic work by Holst. I've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fundraise for a new studio recording. This project has been in the works since late 2017, and I'm excited to finally get into the studio. Please click below to read more about the project and my fundraising goals on Kickstarter.

The Planets: Reimagined - Promo Videos

I hope you enjoy these promo videos I put together to launch this project. The full record will consist of all 7 movements of Holst's orignal suite, adapted for big band. The final record will be just under an hour.

The LEGO Movie 2: the Second Part

It is always a pleasure to work with composer, Mark Mothersbaugh. This is the 4th film I've orchestrated for him along with Tim Davies and team. The best part about this job was getting to bring my daughter, Stella, to her first movie screening. She loved it!

After the project was long finished, Mark sent out signed art to everyone on the team. A very kind gesture.

Lindsey Stirling Tour

I've had the pleasure of working and being good friends with the husband and wife powerhouse team of Chad and Susie Seiter. Susie has been killing it the past year, serving as the conductor for the rock band Evanescence. A few moths ago, YouTube sensation Lindsey Stirling, joined the touring show and they asked me to help write the orchestral arrangements. What a fun job this turned out to be. Translating the pop and EDM styles of her past work with orchestra, proved to be a perfect combination. I've included a fan's YouTube video from one of the live shows of my arrangement of "The Phantom of the Opera." How Lindsey manages to run around and dance while still playing the violin never ceases to amaze.

Hotel Transylvania 3

I had the pleasure of orchestrating Mark Mothersbaugh's terrific score to Hotel Transylvania 3, beside lead orchestrator Tim Davies. Although I wasn't able to go to the scoring sessions this time around, Mark was very kind to send a personalized note as thanks!

Godless Soundtrack

I orchestraed this score for Carlos Rafael Rivera a while ago, but the soundtrack has finally been released! It was really fun to go back and listen to this score again, especially the closing track of the show, Atascadero. Really beautful writing. Excerpts below:

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Now out in the theaters, I orchestrated Chris Beck's awesome score of odd time signature grooves. Tim Davies was lead orchestrator, and latte foam artist (non-credited). This one was really a lot of fun. We had a huge brass section to work with, including the amazing Owen Slade on Tuba and Cimbasso. You can hear some excerpts of the score below.

Star Wars: Battlefront II

I'm incredibly lucky to be friends with the amazing composer, Gordy Haab. He was my "mentor" through the Henry Mancini Institute when I first moved to Los Angeles in 2006. We've been good friends ever since, and I've helped him out on multiple projects throughout the years. The most exciting gigs always come back to Star Wars. Gordy composed all the music for Star Wars Battlefront, and now the sequel. Thankfully, he trusted me to write some additional music on both games. It has been one of my great joys in life to hear the London Symphony Orchestra play a cue I wrote, in the exact same setup as the original trilogy.
