Music has always been my first love. It is also one of the most difficult professions to make a living at. I began playing the drums at seven. By the time I was twelve, I was gigging with working bands. At fifteen, I took up the guitar. I have been playing ever since.
While I have not persued a career in music, it has helped me greatly in my work as a visual communications professional. My understanding of acoustics, amplification, composition and theory have all played a part in my work. Particularly in the editing room. The image is only one component. If you have doubts, watch a movie with the sound turned down.
I have recently begun to compose and create music exclusively. For the documentary The Gathering: Code of the West, I wrote, performed and produced four tracks and have created a music library for indie film makers. Examples of my work can be heard at various online marketplaces. You can sample them here.
