Lately, I’ve been collaborating with students at the University of Central Florida (UCF) to write some music for an animated film they are producing.
‘Ukelayla’ is the heartwarming story of a little girl who is affected by Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). The team at UCF have devoted countless hours towards producing an animation that will raise awareness about CAS globally.
The film is almost complete and should be wrapping up by the end of April!
Please support them and their endeavours and check out their page to find out more about the film:
To celebrate the announcement of Beyond Good and Evil 2, I decided to re-upload my old arrangement from back in the day
The sound quality wasn’t great the first time round…nor was the camera work (!!), so it needed a redo. What better time to upload it?!
Those of you who know me will know how much I love this game, and how I channelled that through an arrangement I made exactly 10 years ago!!! The arrangement led me onto a myriad of adventures, friendships and so much more. Christophe Heral’s OST remains the most influential and important to me on my journey as a musician and composer.
I really hope you like my new live performance ! This is for all of the team and the fans
Thanks Ubisoft for never giving up on BG&E. The original will always remain a favourite across many generations of gamers
My studio has finally been unpacked, decorated and is functional! I have recently finished up an animation, and also in a few weeks, I will be back to working on ‘Defend Your Friend’.
Frenemies released the new trailer, and we should all be on target for a late 2017 release! Check it out below – it has an abbreviated version of the main theme (feat. the awesome Reckoner27 on cello).
I have uploaded the ‘Main Theme’ for DEFEND YOUR FRIEND and it features Reckoner27 on cello!
Apologies for the lack of updates otherwise ; I’ve been ridiculously busy with work, composing for the DYF OST, caring for a poorly cat AND moving house. Yep – when it rains it pours..
However, the exciting news from me is that I can finally reveal that I have some collaborators on the OST. I have been so unbelievably excited about this and wanted to wait until the first track was uploaded to spill the beans!!
First up is Reckoner27, an incredibly talented cellist from Montreal.
She is one of my star soloists for the OST. You will hear her work on the whole soundtrack, so please do support her channel. She is gifted arranger of anime OSTs and has a selection of her beautiful performances on her channel (my personal fave is her Inuyasha medley).
DYF will have a slightly postponed release due to the extensive work that is going into the game. Frenemies have slated the release for the second half of 2017. Trust me, there will be no rest for the wicked, as we have a lot to achieve!
I have another collaborator who shall remain a mystery for now, but as soon as the track is ready, we will be ready for the reveal
It’s been eight years since I uploaded a performance to youtube!! The BG&E community and fans of my original arrangement have been so encouraging, and so I feel like this was the right time to get back into performance videos!
Syncing the filming via an old macbook laptop to the line-in recording on my iMac wasn’t the easiest, but perhaps this will encourage me to invest in a new camera.
This piece was written for The ATARIOWL Project . Recently, I’ve gotten more interest in the piece and people wanted to know if I could still play it.
Hope you enjoy it
PS This is to be the first of many new performances I want to upload to my youtube channel.
