Huntington Library Adventures

Not too long ago I had the pleasure of exploring the Huntington Library for the day. What a throughly refreshing and calming experiencing! I recommend anyone who’s in town go and see it! 😉

I’ll post a gallery of all the photos I took that day at the bottom of this post, but there was one specifically amazing exhibit I took video from and that I wanted to share…

NASA’s Orbit Pavillion

Satellites that study the Earth are passing through space continuously, collecting data on everything from hurricanes to the effects of drought. What if you could make contact with these orbiting spacecraft, and bring them “down to Earth?” Visitors can do exactly that [at] NASA’s Orbit Pavilion… [Orbit is] an innovative “soundscape” experience representing the movement of the International Space Station and 19 Earth Science satellites. Inside the large, shell-shaped sculpture, distinctive sounds are emitted as each satellite passes overhead…

I have always loved the sounds of space, ever since I first heard the “interstellar music” of the complete Voyager sound recordings in the ’90s. So, when I experienced the Orbit exhibit first-hand, I can’t tell you the total joy and enthrallment I felt encountering it… I tried to capture just a taste of what I was experiencing with this short video you can view below… I hope you enjoy it! ^_^

The New Improved Audio Portfolio!

I get a lot of people asking me to demonstrate my range of sounds I create in my various compositions, or to describe my basic genre of writing… With now over 50 titles to my name (and more popping into existence each year), it’s become really difficult to categorize myself. And, someone getting to know only one or two of my works doesn’t necessarily give an accurate depiction of my sonic output as a whole or my abilities in future works… :p

So, I think I’ve finally managed to collect a large majority of my works, not only in categories of sheet music at my store, but also now as folders of playlists, separated by instrumental/ensemble type. This makes getting to know my sound a bit more manageable, I hope! 🙂
