Orchestral & Film Music
I’ve written several works for orchestra—both traditional and for a kind of traditional-jazz-rock hybrid. Only one of the former type has been recorded using a real orchestra: The piece is called Walls, recorded by Czech National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Paul Freeman in 1996.
As for the hybrid orchestra: The forgoing playlist comes from a live recording of the premiere of my group, the Revolution Ensemble. This is a four-movement suite that I called “Never Lose The Blues.” In addition to the traditional orchestral instruments, I added electric guitar and bass, drums, and saxophones. This was recorded in 1998.
And finally, there’s this: Orchestral Film music recorded in the box. Meaning they were scored and recorded on a Mac using sample plug-ins that are meant to sound like the real thing. Most of these were recorded in 2007, and only one of them (Spooky Freaky Music) actually appeared in a movie. The others were commissioned for license by Wild Whirled Music in 2007.
