I’ve been really having a crack at writing with my latest purchase of the EWQL Hollywood Strings Gold, and thus I give you ‘Passage’.
I find myself writing a lot of the same stuff these days – quite slow moving orchestral stuff, inspired by Johann Johannson and the like. Most are fairly meh, but ‘Never Dying’ passed my litmus test. Enjoy!
This is my take on the absolutely amazing Stargate theme, originally composed by David Arnold for the 1994 sci fi classic. An older version of this ‘remix’ was arranged for a feature-length Stargate fan film that never quite made it into existence, which mashed together some elements from Roman mythology into the Stargate universe. Hence, there is some not-so-subtle nods to Holst’s ‘Mars, the Bringer of War’ in here.
I’ve been trying my hand at Adobe After Effects and Premiere recently, and this here video is but one example of a few I’ve been trying to churn out for various projects with The University of Queensland. This was a submission for my fellow PhD student Shelby Berg, for the 2015 QANTAS travel grant.
Drones are just everywhere now. Here’s how to use a drone to make quite a nice wedding video. It helps to shoot around a dramatic old church, with some dramatic mountains as a backdrop, too. Features my track ‘Forever Sky’.
As we walk into the Royal International Convention Centre, I realise that this is going to be no ordinary orchestral concert by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
