Gadgeteer [Soundtrack]

For a long while, I've been eyeing a project in development by my friends at Metanaut. Then called Ruberg - and now Gadgeteer - it promised to be a VR sandbox for building gold ruberg machines. As a kid who grew up with marbles chutes and legos and train tracks galore, it's appeal to me was strong and immediate. At the first opportunity, I jumped at the chance to score it - and thankfully they...

Hemlock Printers 50th Anniversary [Commercial]

Hemlock Printers - a venerable print shop in Vancouver - ​recently celebrated their 50th anniversary and I was lucky enough to write some music to help them reach their half century in style.

With as little as $3,500, the Rare Disease Foundation...

“Kollectv” feat Lilian Leopold [Short]

Featuring Lilian Leopold, this latest short by Kollectv takes us on a romp through some of my favourite places in the world, the trails of North Vancouver. The creative was looking for a hybrid sound, a blend of tribal and nature-inspired tones sitting on an electronic foundation. Narratively, we wanted to paint the picture of a hunt, one that would escalate throughout the piece. As always with this team, I was more than happy to...
