In 2017 I had the pleasure of working on some original chamber orchestra music for portions of the underscore of “A Little Something About Noel,” a sweet short film by Paul Garcia. I’m thrilled to say his film is now available for viewing! Enjoy it below; you can also find my soundtrack on the album, “Myriaddict.”
Shady Oaks Takedown, the film created in 48 hours, is now available to stream and share on Vimeo.
The year old film, was produced for the LA 48 Hour Film Project to write, produce and finish a film in only 48 hours. In addition, several parameters were given: A character named Austin or Ashley Cheevers who is a winemaker, a wallet for a prop, and the line of dialog “We only have a few minutes” must be included. The genres were drawn at random from a hat, the team drew “Martial Arts/Buddy Film” and we could combine them or use one or the other. (Source)
This adorable short film, a frequent Audience Favorite at screenings, was a crazy, fun project I was brought in to create the music for… in only 6 or so hours…!!! Read more about the experience here.

While the full soundtrack is currently available on my store and everywhere else you stream music, you can now watch it in context of the entire film!
Enjoy below, and share it around if you like! 🙂
It’s always so exciting to see projects get finished, ready to share with you! So, check out these three newest releases, available now for your enjoyment!
- MYRIAADICT: The Soundtrack Collection
- Consisting of all my fun soundtrack commissions from this past summer, plus two rocking, original Celtic tunes — one from several years ago, and one just fresh off the presses for a dear friend. 🙂
Explore new music created to be partnered with other art-forms! From retro-style video games to short indie films, this collection covers instrumental and electronic moods from chip tune to romance, comedy, and contemporary Celtic. This download includes mp3s as well as 5 album art extras!
- That brand new Celtic tune I mentioned? The sheet music is ready for purchase!
- Gleann Na Aes Sídhe (Glen of the Faeries) — a brand new, all-original, Irish fiddle set for solo violin, with optional parts for band, harp or piano, and string orchestra. Duration: 3.5 minutes.
- You can also purchase the full band backing track to perform the solo anywhere, and the sheet music for the string orchestra and harp/piano parts if you want to jam with some friends (the solo part includes all the chord changes and tab for guitar and/or bass)!
- And finally… as the major recording production of “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep” continues into the solo production stage, I’ve spruced up the accompanying, educational art book: “The Music’s Story” and have made it available for purchase in both ePub and mobi formats, as well as a beautiful softcover physical copy.
This original picture-book and poem by Sarah Wallin-Huff features the three movements and subsections found within her 2008 concerto for 6-string electric violin, EWI, synth, and orchestra, “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep,” allowing the reader to dive into the mythology that built the musical work.
You know what else this means?… As I finish up the Leviathan recording, once and for all, I have some really exciting projects in the pipeline, ready to start taking shape in the coming months…. 😀
Enjoy this little trailer video for my new soundtrack collection, coming soon…. 🙂
I am so honored to have been invited to write and produce the scores to a couple of exciting independent film projects, and I’ve decided to make these soundtracks available through Bandcamp now!
The first one I finished a couple months ago was for the charming and thought-provoking, romantic film, “A Little Something About Noel,” by writer-director, Paul Garcia. The film’s not quite out yet, but do subscribe to his YouTube channel to be the first to see this wonderfully sweet film when it’s available!
And, in the meantime, you can get a taste for what’s in store by checking out the soundtrack…
Now I’m sure you all have seen the excitement surrounding the 48 Hour Film, “Shady Oaks Takedown,” — the epic, senior center martial arts comedy, which was completed in just 48 hours — floating around these past couple weeks…
The big, exciting news is that our film was one of 26 films — out of 126 — to be selected by a panel of industry professionals to move on the official screening and awards event at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood!!
Being one of the films chosen to screen at the “‘BEST OF’ LOS ANGELES Award’s Screening & Ceremony” on Sept. 10 means that we were nominated for one or more of the possible awards (one of which is for Best Music Score… Fingers crossed!!!). 😮
We are all just so thrilled our little film was chosen among the top films!
Even though tickets are now sold out, you can enjoy my very-cool soundtrack for the film on Bandcamp today!
UPDATE: We were selected by the audience to go on to the second round of screenings for the Audience Award!!!! Check out the details here!
Presenting the trailer for “Shady Oaks Takedown”, the super fun, collaborative bonding experience that comes from creating a short film from scratch in 48 hours!! I had the immense honor of being asked to create the music for our buddy-comedy, martial arts genre film… That is, 5 minutes of music, created on the fly in only about 8 straight hours, watching the film for the first time and composing music for each scene and hit at the same time, all starting in the wee hours of the morning before dawn, haha!
Want to join us for the screening of our 48 hour film? Get your tickets for Screening Group G here, and join us for the event TOMORROW at 5pm in L.A.!!
And, as a special treat, you can listen to all my “Shady Oaks” film clips at the Novel Soundtrax Audio Page for a limited time!
