    Inspired by this silent video that coyote_fur posted on Instagram, I immediately heard a glimpse of what kind of musical climate might accompany such a strange and alien world. This was a quick little composing sketch utilizing sounds from my hand made sample libraries rigged up in Kontakt, and some customized Chromophone patches. There’s a good amount of low end …

Television spot #2 for the Disney movie Tangled.  My  track “Somebody Pinch Me” was featured. I’ll never forget my son running through our house yelling “It’s you daddy, it’s you!” when he saw the commercial and heard the song.  He was watching a DVR’d episode of Star Wars The Clone Wars and then the Tangled commercial played. That was a great moment. …
