Beethoven had used the words, ‘I am of electric nature’, to describe his energy and how he felt as a creator living in the real world. When I need to create something new, something amazing that has never been heard before in some way, it is first nurtured by my subconscious spirit, and secondly seems to require a monumental amount of emotionally charged energy that just overwhelms and must be released into a new form. The music itself becomes imbued with the emotion in which it was conceived and brought into this world. It is much easier to feel electric all the time…feel like an energy body, like a sound wave, so that it is easy to pick up the vibrations of everything that is around. In some beautiful way, I understand a small part of what Beethoven may have been eluding to as he created music that has electrified the world since he brought it into being. How remarkable to feel this understanding!
‘Music is the electric soil, in which the spirit lives, thinks, creates.’ – Beethoven

Three new cinematic pieces that were created in three days! All pre-written for films in the making! Enjoying the intensity, textures and pure creative craziness that this style brings out of me!! Enjoy and hold onto your seats!
Danny’s Ghost is an incredible new track that opens into a world of mystery, fright and suspense!! Written for a film that is currently being edited! Very excited to see how the music will sync up with picture!
Valentine needed a bit over a minute of chaos, anger, angst and pain! I think this track fits the bill.
Produced in the wee hours for Alex’s film trailer, it’s a horror film that I will be scoring this summer! It is all about psychological build up and getting under the skin of the viewer. So excited to create a score that will meld classic and modern horror, mostly with the sounds and textures of my cello!
