I've made little improvements here and there, but overall have really neglected the website. It doesn't see a lot of traffic, so I'm not to concerned. Just to give you a heads up of what's going on. I've added a page with my commercial music listed, so go check that out, and over the next couple of weeks I'll be revamping the website (again.) I feel like it's a little redundant to have a store listing the same information as my music category, so I'm going to combine the two, as well as list all of the new music I've been working on.
Speaking of which I have several new projects going on.
Firstly I was commissioned to arrange Christmas music for EskDale high school. That's finished and set to be performed at their annual Christmas Banquet, so make sure you go see that, here's a sneak peak of a larger orchestration I wrote at the same time:
Second, keeping with the spirit of the Holidays I have a wonderful arrangement of The First Noel for choir and orchestra coming out soon, I hope everyone will listen to it and love it!
Third, I've been commissioned by the House of Aaron to arrange ten religious songs for orchestra and voice, something I'm very excited about, and will keep you updated with.
Fourth, I've just made a huge purchase that I hope will give me a huge bump in quality of my music. I'm now the proud owner of EastWest Quantum Leap's Hollywood Orchestra Diamond Edition. It's taken me a huge amount of time, and a completely new work set up to get these bad boys running, but I'm very excited about using them in the near future.
Fifth, I haven't heard back about a commission for choir and orchestra that I was asked about last year, it's still scheduled for the spring semester, so until I hear otherwise I'm still planning on that.
Sixth, I'm making a huge push into the film, commercial and video game world. I'm getting my name out there and constantly trying to drum up some new work, so pass the word along if you know anyone. Also I've begun the preliminary work to start some of my own projects and to begin building my brand...but more on that later.
Hope this keeps everyone up to date on what's going on in my world.
Let me know what you want to hear next!
