Shorty and Morty
 

This is the first film I ever scored. It was a pleasure being on a project that, although E.M. Frederic knew exactly what she wanted, I felt a lot of freedom in writing truly melodic music with an occasional Prokofiev-like deviation and an Elfman-like quality to it. It was especially fun to write the music for the end credits, which I was able to score with the melodies symbolizing each character corresponding to illustrations of each said character, a la "Peter and the Wolf" style.....

Salut D'Amour
 

This is an arrangement of Salut D'Amour by Edward Elgar commissioned and performed by Ashot Tigranyan and the Classical Concert Chamber Orchestra. Originally written for violin and piano, this orchestration is for violin, string orchestra, 2 oboes, and 2 French horns.

 

 

Big Brother

This is an arrangement of Stephane Wrembel's "Big Brother", made famous from its use in Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". Mr. Wrembel performed this piece during a concert for the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival. For this performance I arranged the string parts, including the solo performed by soloist Colin Jacobsen.

 

Performer
 
Music at the Mission Concert Series

Here are a few performances from the Music at the Mission Concert Series based in Fremont, CA.

Fantasie for Violin and Harp by Camille Saint-Saens
Tziganne by Ravel
Violin/Piano Demo
 

This is a performing demo l made a few years back with some help from my friend Barry Gremillion . First is an excerpt of Prokofiev No. 1, 1st Mvmt., followed by an excerpt of The Pirates Charles' "Raise The Whiskey High", ending with an excerpt of Rick Wakeman of Yes's "The Six Wives of Henry VIII", played on piano. In case you're wondering why I have a metronome on during the last one, it was a requirement of an audition tape!
