Score Sound Design: Ghostbusters

Talk about a childhood dream realized! I teamed up again with Theodore Shapiro to provide him a new toolbox of horror sounds for the Ghostbusters reboot. Screaming metals on dry ice, bowed cymbals, lots of bizarre contact microphone recordings, animal sounds, deep heart-thumps, and a ton of Kyma processing ended up with a big delivery of spooky new material.   Read more →

Score Sound Design: Zoolander 2

Here’s another Ben Stiller movie that I am happy to be part of. Theodore Shapiro’s comedy scores are known for playing it straight to let the humor in the scene not get over-the-top, and this is another great example of that. I recorded tons of new material for percussion, synths, atmospheres, and hard-hitting fashion beats. This was also a project where… Read more →

I don’t want to spoil any details about the score until the film and soundtrack are released, but this was a unique challenge and a ton of fun to work on.… Read more →

It’s always fun trying to cram as much energy as possible into a climactic finish, and this album offers plenty of that.

A call for audio revolution — lend us your ears.

There are many beautiful, beautiful apps out there for phone and tablet users to gaze upon. Screens glide effortlessly into and out of sight. Icons and buttons have a uniform style and visual branding from app to app (in high-quality products, at least). The trend towards flat-UI took designers and product managers by storm throughout 2013, with the shift making… Read more →
