L'Esprit de Sang

| MUSIC BLOG | SOUNDCLOUDBANDCAMP | COMMISSION |

Is Throwback Tuesday a thing? I’ll make it a thing if it isn’t.

I really love all the commissioned work I’ve done, but this piece for enkiz, which was one of the first commissions I ever worked on, still really stands out to me as a piece I’m exceptionally proud of.

RiftKeepers Trailer

| MUSIC BLOG | SOUNDCLOUDBANDCAMP | COMMISSION |

I was recently commissioned to score an animation student’s major project, a two-minute trailer for a science fiction/fantasy story of her own making. I don’t receive commissions for scoring videos very often—and they’re much more difficult than the type of commissions I usually get—so this commission was a wonderful challenge and an opportunity to approach composition with a very different mindset!

Take The Succu - Bi The Horns

I made this for my friend Sophie’s fursona! I spent almost as long coming up with the pun for the title as I did on the music!

Red Lotus

| MUSIC BLOG | SOUNDCLOUDBANDCAMP | COMMISSION |

I’ve wanted to do something with the musical leitmotif that seems to accompany the members of the Red Lotus throughout Book Three ever since it showed up in the Legend of Korra Book 3 trailer a few weeks ago. Legend of Korra’s score is so good—I hope Book 2 and 3’s scores get their own official releases soon!

This is the one track from FFVI I can never escape. Maybe if I do enough things with it, it’ll leave my head…

I had an epiphany this afternoon when I realized that I could use EWQL Symphonic Choirs Wordbuilder to make it say anything I wanted.

Baa Ram Ewe (I Love You)

morbi:

| MUSIC BLOG | SOUNDCLOUDBANDCAMP | COMMISSION |

I’ve been meaning to take a shot at Ewe-Lala’s song from morbi's webcomic Poppy O’Possum for a few weeks now, but didn’t get around to it until just recently.

If I could sing, I’d provide the vocals myself, but I can’t, so the alto saxophone is filling in for me.

Lyrics: www.poppy-opossum.com/comic/ewe-lala-page-5/

Well, musical gift art is definitely a first. Baa Ram Ewe actually has an extremely (almost obnoxiously) poppy and upbeat melody in-universe, but a slow, jazzy approach is interesting too.

If I could remember how to read and write music, I might jot down the tune in my head someday so people could do proper covers.

I figured the real song would be a more high-energy genre, but when I read the lyrics the the first thing that came to mind was “obnoxiously hammy lounge singer”, so that’s what I went with in my arrangement.
