Action Musc Showreel

5. Jun. 2019


Very excited to share my new Action Music showreel. It’s been a lot of fun to put this one together, making some serious noise. Out of several tracks I chose, there’s music from my award winning score for Sticks, the End Credit where Tina Guo really shines through, I also brought out the guitar, with some industrial metal, and included cues recorded with the Budapest Art Orchestra. A special thanks to Søren Grau, for lending me footage from our award winning short film Between Heaven and Hell. A strong movie that has a very special place for me.

FABLE - orchestra recording session

29. Aug. 2018


FABLE is the pitch I wrote for a gothic horror film. I chose to work with the Budapest Art Orchestra, and record with an ensemble of 60 players. I wanted a dense sound, with 4 horns, a large string section, and woodwinds. FABLE embraces both the epic and grueling, but also the romantic and ominous. Continuing the tradition of recording scores with a live orchestra

For those of you who want to dig a bit deeper into MOVING IMAGES, you now have the chance to do a score study of the piece. The music itself is the demo I created when I re-arranged it for the Helix Collective ensemble. Some parts of the suite had to be condensed into the smaller instrumentation, and in some others, I took the creative liberty to try out several new ideas I had been interested in exploring, which didn’t make it into the previous versions.
