I once again had the opportunity to work with veteran film composer Theodore Shapiro for the movie Spy. We built up a library of ticking and tocking loops for adding tension, as well as some custom sounds to be used as a thematic “danger” tone. As of this posting, Spy currently holds a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and was… Read more →

Music featured in Ratchet & Clank trailer

Another trailer has been released featuring one of my tracks from Sencit’s Imagination album. This time it’s for the upcoming game-turned-movie Ratchet & Clank.

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 →

I am pleased to announce that one of my compositions from the Sencit Music album Tenth Dimension: Singularity is being used in a trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Affleck/Timberlake feature Runner, Runner.

Sonic Prose: Giving Text a Musical Voice
