I work hard to create custom scores that complement and adapt to your source material and vision whilst retaining a signature sound.
I am chiefly an acoustic pianist and percussionist, but I gleefully employ instruments and sounds from a very wide range of analog and electronic sources. I try to steer clear of categorizations, but my influences and intuitions probably lie somewhere between Liszt, Led Zeppelin, and the Legend of Zelda.
I have nearly twenty years' experience as a song-writer and orchestrator of creative symphonic music (my work has been performed live by union symphony musicians here at Benaroya's Recital Hall). Nonetheless, I regard genres more as extensions of voice than rigid limitations on sound. You can hear examples of this in my work, which so far has encompassed flavors ranging from avant-garde to rock, funk, jazz, ragtime, and much more. I strive to maintain an organic energy in my music, but I love to meld acoustic and synthetic sounds.
Whatever the directive, I'm driven to create dynamic, inviting music with a fluid human touch. I deliver polished tracks on tight timetables and I can edit my compositions directly to your footage for fine-tuning sound to action. I can also produce full sheet music sets complete with conductor's score should you ever need your soundtrack performed live.

If your project is craving an inventive score with an authentic “live” sound but you can't afford a symphony, do get in touch! I offer flexible rates and a lifetime of experience. I look forward to working with you to make your soundtrack a memorable one.
