This clip is from my re-orchestration of the "The John Dunbar Theme" by John Barry. This was shot at a recording session at the Musician's Union in Los Angeles.
I just wrapped up writing a new piece called "Amnésique".
This clip is take one from the recording session at Entourage Studios in Los Angeles.
I again had the pleasure of working with top-notch musicians for this recording session. For this piece I utilized violins, viola, cello, timpani, trombone, trumpet, horn, oboe, harp and clarinet. The conductor, Tim Kelly, and players did a fantastic job.
I just finished creating music for a suspense scene. I had the pleasure of writing this one for flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello and timpani. The players and conductor were really outstanding. There is nothing in this world like watching music that you've written come to life in real time via great musicians.
This clip from inside the recording booth is take 1.
I'll be posting a mix of this track in the near future. Stay tuned...
So here is my recent piece for strings, harp and flute. It's entitled "Nótt Himinn", which is Icelandic for "night sky". Hope you enjoy it.

I'll have a nice mix of it posted soon.
