2011 was a busy and productive year! To cap it off I thought I’d write a summary of some of the highlight projects I got to work on this past 12 months.
I scored the beautiful feature film Two Shadows from writer/director Greg Cahill.
I wrote original music for a commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards.
I wrote music for many short films, including:
- Project Arbiter with Michael Chance
- Fire City with Brian Lubocki and Michael Hayes
- Pixelated Mindwarp Mario Adventure! with D. Ryan Reeb
- Patricide with Kevin Huang
- Nuts for Pizza with Dave Andrade
- Bride on Sale with Hendrik de Smet
The official Disney Princess website added Rapunzel to its roster of princesses, and thus I wrote an orchestral arrangement of Alan Menken’s “When Will My Life Begin” for her page.
I wrote several tutorials for Audiotuts, continuing the Altered Chord series I began in 2010:
- Getting to Know Altered Chords Part 3: Altered VI
- Getting to Know Altered Chords Part 4: Altered III
- Getting to Know Altered Chords Part 5: Altered VII
I wrote original string quartet and string orchestra arrangements for many songwriters and artists via the company I run with my beautiful wife, Lydia Veilleux, at Short Order Strings.
And I played bass for Michael Teoli and Joe Fria’s epic gothic horror rock musical CarnEvil!
Here’s to a prolific and creative 2012!
