While I put work in to a proper demo reel, please enjoy this massive sampler of all the noteworthy projects I have worked on over the last 8 years. Not so much a reel as it is a compendium.
I started out as a chiptune artist, just making NES music as a hobby in 2002. I started to favour chiptunes mostly because I could finally write the melodies I could not play on guitar. Not for lack of trying, but more out of a problem I have for writing outrageous melodies. At least, too outrageous for me to perform on guitar.
After building up a perplexing following for my chiptune work over a 10 year span, I was one day asked to contribute some NES music for the indie NES themed Retro City Rampage, and that opened the door for me to actually become a composer for video games.
That led to Slayin, which led to Venture Kid, which were all NES themed. But in the the years that followed, I slowly eased away from chipmusic and started to take on more non chiptune music.
Somewhere around the time Mass Effect 1 was released, and somewhere around the time the movie Drive came out I started to want to shift my musical focus to more cinematic and synth based work. Everything up until that point had been all NES music and random guitar stuff, but nothing as of yet, done on a keyboard. I broke down and bought a MIDI controller. I broke down and bought a copy of Cubase 6, and I finally started to write music with synthesizers... And it felt REALLY good.
While I still tend to write non chiptune music as if it were just a really elaborate chiptune, I am very much enjoying writing various other genres of sound. I think I am still writing chiptunes in my head, I am just writing them with different instruments.
This is what the last 8 years of my life have sounded like.
