Hybrid electronic + orchestra might come across as being a little cliche these days, but being one of my two signature styles, I've created my own distinctive sound for the genre.

I feature the electronic elements as its own instrument, and not so much as a pad, or a pulsating arpeggio bed.

In so doing, I basically write the rest of the score around the electronic element(s), keeping it front and center throughout.

One of my favorite standout pieces has to be 'The Death of Wally'.

Western - my other favorite style of music to write - conveys such an earthly, gritty texture and quality, and makes me feel I'm on the road or getting stuff done.

Once again the guitar is usually a feature element of the piece. I love using it both as a lead instrument and as an effect.

The Bleeding Fingers contest yielded a superb piece - 'Cowboys and Angels' - for my portfolio, and you can listen to it here.

Another distinctive track is the theme from 'Deadmen the Series', which I am very proud of.



A special playlist. Containing some very unique pieces I wrote in different genres, these are pieces of music written for music's sake and not to picture.

I wrote the 'Cello and Guitar Duet' for my favorite cellist, Linor Katz, who I got to know during my time in Boston.

She is a phenomenal musician and friend and this piece was written for two 'unlikely' instruments: Cello and Acoustic Guitar.

She did a beautiful job. To me it was a successful endeavor as the blending of the two unconventional textures yielded a very unique sound.
