Back in the game!

I am proud to present Sniper on the Second Floor, an orchestral thriller cue featuring live orchestra and a barrage of additional percussion tracks. Enjoy! More music coming in the next few days!

A magical experience

Such a magical experience... 67 people playing all those notes you've worked on so hard! Especially when you're with the orchestra in the room – an opportunity I gladly took a number of times. Very happy! A special thank you to David Christiansen & Peter Pejtsik!

In Budapest for recordings

Exciting! I'm in Budapest this weekend to record new music with the Budapest Scoring Symphony Orchestra. You'll soon be able to listen and watch on this site. Very pretty city, by the way!
