MUSIC

These are examples of my work.
This is the music from my rescore of the finale scene from the film The Theory of Everything. The film is a biopic of Stephen Hawking's life. James Marsh is the director, and the late Jóhann Jóhannson is the original composer (Rest in Peace, Jóhann). To watch the scene with my score, please Click Here For Video.
This is the music from my rescore of the short animated film The Oceanmaker. After a worldwide drought, a determined pilot fights sky pirates as a last hope to secure the final cloud, and with it, the final water source on the planet. Lucas Martell is the director, and Chris Reyman is the original composer. I scored it as a part of the 2017 Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest.

This is the music from my rescore of the main title scene in the comedy-drama film Man About Town. Ben Affleck plays a Hollywood talent agent who starts taking a self-help course, because his wife cheats on him. For the course, he must keep a diary, which falls into the hands of a journalist who threatens to bring him down. Mike Binder is the director, and Larry Groupé is the original composer. At the 2017 Palomar Film Music Workshop, cofounded by Larry and Roger Neill, and featuring guest faculty Garry Schyman, George S. Clinton, and numerous others, I scored this scene. My score was recorded at Studio West, with Jason LaRocca as the audio engineer. This workshop was an incredible experience that will stay with me forever.

All six tracks on this album are my arrangements of those songs for string quintet. "Love Story" is originally by Taylor Swift,"Without You" is by David Guetta, and "A Sky Full of Stars" is by Coldplay, but my arrangements of those are of the Piano Guys's version of the songs. The rest of my arrangements are of the Vitamin String Quartet's versions of "Harry in Winter" by Patrick Doyle from the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds, and "Kingdom Hearts - Dearly Beloved" by Yoko Shimomura from the video game Kingdom Hearts. I arranged these songs when I was at Oberlin for my friend's wedding, for which I directed a string quintet made up of Louisa Liles ('18) and Mohit Lauer Dubey ('18) on violins, Christopher Gokelman ('19) on viola, Eliza Edwards ('18) on cello, and Nic Mathisen ('18) on double bass.
