January 1, 2015 - I've had a lot of things going on, so I haven't been doing much recording over the past several months. I'll eventually get back into it when some time frees up, hopefully a few months down the line. I do have one new track on AudioJungle called Infected. Nothing special, just a little industrial rock thingy. Specter has pretty much been on hold, but the game did get greenlit on Steam which is awesome. Dunno if the game will ever get finished. If not, the tracks will probably end up relegated to the stock library. Also worth mentioning, Baby's Music Box Lullabies has been doing surprisingly well. 68,000 views on Youtube, and I've sold quiet a bit in licensing on it. Thanks to everyone that has taken part in that.
May 21, 2014 - New Audiojungle track! It's a really corny and upbeat corporate track called Best Day Ever! I bought a Kala ukelele recently because I wanted to try some more advertising targeted tracks and this was my first attempt at recording something with it. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
May 13, 2014 - So my computer HD failed awhile back, which is the main reason I haven't updated this page in so long. I've been too lazy to set up the website tools again. Luckily I didn't loose any important project files. I have everything up and running again and I used the opportunity to upgrade some of my music software! I'm using Logic X now and it is absolutely awesome. Right before my computer went down I added a track to AudioJungle. It's called Country Side Houses. It's actually a remake of this old track that I did way about in 2009. Check out the new version on the AudioJungle page. I also have another new track in the works that's nearly finished! Hoping to have it online soon.
January 12, 2014 - Baby's Music Box Lullabies is now available for purchase through BandCamp. I mainly put it up there as an experiment. BandCamp is a great service and I've been wanting to give it a test drive!
January 3, 2014 - Got a new track up for Specter. It's a training theme! Also wanted to shout out Fettspielen.de for including Blubber into their blog. Check them out! It's a great source for indie game news.
January 1, 2014 - I have a new track on AudioJungle! It's the first non-Specter track I've done in awhile. It's called "The Waterfall" for Piano and Violin. Just a simple mood-setting piano and violin track. Check it out! I should also have a new Specter track up soon.
November 29, 2013 - I added a new game to the Game Soundtracks section called Blubber. It's a free platformer for Android that uses JB-Audio music and sound effects from AudioJungle. Hoping to get around to recording some new audio soon. I haven't done a lot of recording this year because things have been so crazy. Hopefully with the holidays being here I'll get some time to get some more Specter stuff done.
October 12, 2013 - Got another new track in the Specter section. It's track 11. Check it out!
October 3, 2013 - Been on a bit of a hiatus lately. 2013 has turned out to be a pretty crazy and hectic year for me! Progress is still going slowly on Specter. The people at Zzep games are working hard to get the demo out, so I'm just kind of working on new tracks at a leisurely pace. I finished a new one awhile back but I only just now got it uploaded to the site. It's track ten. You can listen to it in the Specter section.
June 24, 2013 - Uploaded a short victory fanfare track for Specter.
June 20, 2013 - I've been on a bit of a hiatus lately trying to get some stuff straightened out. I finally have a new Specter track done though! It's a boss battle theme. Check it out!
April 17, 2013 - I've added a couple of the new Specter tracks. Progress has been moving slowly on it because I've been so busy, but I'm pushing onward. The game itself is awesome so far!
March 27, 2013 - I uploaded a project that I actually finished a few months back. It's a collection of music box lullabies that was made to be sold through AudioJungle, however due to some restrictions on music packs there I decided not to submit it to them. I went ahead and added it to this site though because it might be useful for someone. Other than that I've been hard at work on the Specter soundtrack. I'll add some of those tracks here eventually.
March 12, 2013 - I added some of the tracks that I've been working on for Specter. You can find them in the new section, Game Soundtracks.
February 23, 2013 - New track on AudioJungle called Rat Race! It's a fun little rock 'n roll piece. Also, I think I have a new project lined up to keep me busy for awhile. It's a soundtrack for an upcoming action platform game called Specter being developed by Zepp Games. I haven't started the work yet and we're still going over the details, but from what I've seen it looks like it's going to be a fantastic game and I'm really excited to be a part of it! You can learn more about the game at http://specter-game.com.
February 3, 2013 - New track on AudioJungle called The Fallen Hero. It's a minimalist / atmospheric piano piece.
January 27, 2013 - I have a new track on AudioJungle called Playtime for Perry. It's a corny piano / orchestra thing. Check it out! :)
January 17, 2013 - There's a new track in my new section, Misc 2013! It's called Epic Fantasy Adventure. I finally got ahold of a decent orchestral sample library and this is my first attempt at using it. The track itself didn't take too long to put together, but there was a long mess about getting it published. It was originally going to be sold through AudioJungle. Aside from their reviewing panel being painfully slow lately, they were also nit-picking about the bird sound effects making it commercially unviable. They wanted me to take the effects out and resend it to them, but I didn't feel like going to the trouble of rebouncing all of the files. Instead I posted it here. It's free for non-commercial use. You can also download a zip that contains the main file in WAV format, plus several loops cut from the project files. Check it out! Don't forget to leave a comment if you like it :)
Aside from that, I also have another new track in the queue at AJ. Should up there within the next week or two, so check back!
January 8, 2013 - I put all of the stuff from 2011 and before into it's own section called Older Works. I'm going to make the focus of the site my newer, higher quality stuff.
January 7, 2013 - I've taken my song Mechanical Graveyard off of Audio Jungle and added it to the 2012 section. It is now freely available for non-commercial use. I also have a track pending approval at Audio Jungle, so come back and check that out in a few days.
January 1, 2013 - There's a new track on Audio Jungle called Mystic Cave Loop. Check it out!
December 31, 2012 - I added my demo reel for 2012 to the Youtube channel. There's been a new track in the queue for AudioJungle for about two weeks now, but it should get accepted soon. I'll post a link when it does. I've also got some other stuff in the works, so hopefully I'll have new content soon!
December 15, 2012 - Two of my Audio Jungle tracks, titled Shooting Star and Rain Temple, are now unwatermarked and freely available for non-commercial use. You can find them in the misc 2012 section.
December 12, 2012 - I added a new article called "My most used mixing tips and tricks." I also have a new song in the works that's nearly done, if only I could get off my lazy butt and finish it.
December 8, 2012 - I added a rough recording of a simple little piano piece I composed earlier in the year. It's called Garden Quarters, it's in the 2012 section. I'll have some other new stuff pretty soon.
December 5, 2012 - I've added a section for articles and blogs. I thought this might be a nice way to explore my own ideas about music, plus it might bring some more traffic into the site. I might add some tutorials to it eventually. For now there is only one article that explores music piracy and making money as a musician on the internet.
November 29, 2012 - Added a new loop to the misc 2012 section called The Complex. It's available in both WAV and MP3 format.
November 27, 2012 - I've added a random song player to the site.
November 19, 2012 - I finally added a new track called Temple Battle to the 2012 section along with two seamless loops cut from it.
It turned out ok, but it's nothing great. At least it's something new!
October 29, 2012 - I added a tagging system and a section that separates tracks by genre and mood tags. Hoping to have new tracks
soon. Also made some small changes to the licensing system.
October 15, 2012 - I added an older track to Misc 2012 called The Isle. I recorded this in early 2012. I was planning on
doing more with it, but I never finished it and it sat on my hard drive for most of the year. I went ahead and added it to the
October 11, 2012 - I have the licensing system online now. I've ran tons of sandbox purchase tests and one actual money transfer test.
Everything seems to be in good working order. The only thing that remains to be finished is the FAQ explaining the system
and the terms and conditions of the licenses. For right now I'm only selling commercial use licenses for my old tracks. I doubt they'll get any
purchases since most of them are pretty low quality, but I have the prices set really low for a royalty free commercial-use license so who knows.
These old tracks still remain free for personal as well as non-commercial use. The main reason this licensing system was implemented was for
Also, Project VGM is officially complete. Check it out. It's awesome.
October 10, 2012 - I'm working on adding my own licensing system. It's not finished yet, but a lot of the base code is already uploaded and I'm doing testing. I'm still going to use Audio Jungle, but in the future
I'm hoping to break away from it and do all licensing myself. For now, when it's finished, it will be used to generate commercial use licenses for my older
October 8, 2012 - Added a background among some other small stuff to make the page look a little less plain. Also, Project VGM is nearing completion! They're finishing things up right now and it should officially launch in a few days. Check it out here. It's gonna be awesome!
October 4, 2012 - Made some more updates to the site now. I think it's finished now. One of the new features is a comments section for each category. If anyone comes across any bugs, please email me about it at here
October 2, 2012 - I rebuilt the site again from the ground up. I felt that I went a little overboard with the last version. Too many useless features that made it bulky and difficult to maintain. This new version is easier to navigate, update, and maintain. I'm still in the process of setting it up, but the links should be working. Hoping to get some new tracks out soon.
September 10, 2012 - It's been a month since I've uploaded anything. Aside from a lot of other stuff keeping me busy, my only pair of studio headphones are broken. I'm waiting for Guitar Center's incredibly slow pro coverage department to get my money back to me so I can buy some new ones. In the meantime I'm taking a break from recording.
August 10, 2012 - Added a new AudioJungle track called Rover. It's a down tempo / chill electronic track. The full track comes with four seamless loops cut from the project files.
August 4, 2012 - I recently added a new track to my AJ portfolio called Synth Pop Loop. It's a simple, upbeat, and catchy synth pop loop.
July 30, 2012 - I've had two new AJ tracks online, but I've not posted about it until now. The first is just a simple 15 second logo track called Modern Space Logo. The second is an updated version of Robotz 1 renamed Super Spies.
July 20, 2012 - A new Audio Jungle track is available for purchase called Summer Cycle. It's an upbeat, summer themed track in 3/4 timing. It turned out decently for being my second attempt at creating something in Logic Pro. I've also added my first Logic experiment to Misc 2012 called Logic Ambience. It was just short and simple song that I did to get familiar with the Logic interface. Sounds kinda cool though.
July 10, 2012 - Completed another new Audio Jungle track called Spring Step. It's an upbeat, acoustic pop-corporate sort of thingy. Check it out! I also made some re-vamps to my recording setup. I'm using Logic Pro 9 now and I'm learning the ins and outs of it, so it might be a short amount of time before I finish any new tracks with it.
July 01, 2012 - I made a sound effects pack for my Audio Jungle profile called Digital Effects Pack. I've also made some changes to the site. The biggest change is that I have embedded a player for my stock tracks that stream straight from Audio Jungle so when a track get accepted it will be added here automatically. The free track section is still the same.
June 24, 2012 - Added another new Audio Jungle track called Space Race. It should be available for purchase in about a week.
June 23, 2012 - Added another Audio Jungle track called Safari Rock. It's a cutesy African themed rock track. Almost sounds like something you would hear in a kid's show. It should be available for purchase in about a week.
June 16, 2012 - Added a short track to the miscellaneous 2012 section called Lava Level. Made this one pretty quickly for fun. It was inspired by the lava level in Mario 64. It sounds pretty nice, but there's not a lot to it. Maybe I'll expand on it someday. It might work good in a flash game or something.
June 14, 2012 - I got a request to separate the hands in the Evening Bells Piano midi file. I uploaded it to the midi section if anyone is interested.
June 13, 2012 (2nd entry) - A flash artist by the name of Hikarian used Evening Bells (Piano Version) in a fantastic animation called The Elephant. Check it out here.
June 13, 2012 - Added a new track preview to my Audio Jungle list called Mechanical Graveyard. It's a down tempo electronic piece with a dark and laid back atmosphere. It's pending review at Audio Jungle right now. It should be available for purchase sometime next week.
June 10, 2012 - Made some small mixing changes to Twilight Village. I re-uploaded it then sent it off to AudioJungle for review.
June 9, 2012 - Added a new track to the Audio Jungle section called Twilight Village. I haven't sent it to AJ yet because I haven't decided if this is the finished version or not. It will probably be on AJ for purchase in a week or so.
June 8, 2012 - I did a complete re-recording of Inner City and added it to my Audio Jungle track list. Also made some changes to Axial Color Blur and added it to Audio Jungle as well. I've sold a total of $86 worth of music through AJ just since I signed up for it about a month ago! Absolutely amazing. I really wasn't expecting that. It may not be a whole lot of money, but the fact that it's selling at all is what has me excited. Thanks to everyone that has been buying. I've been hitting the mixing and audio engineering books hard lately trying to get closer to that professional sound. Hopefully I'll continue to improve because I would like to move my way up to doing hired work. I'll have more new stuff soon!
May 30, 2012 - Added a new track to Misc 2012 called Fracture Point. It's an electro-rave house thingy. I've never tried this genre, so it was more of an experiment / learning experience than anything.
May 28, 2012 - I made a compilation for Audio Jungle watermarked previews in the music section. I've got three tracks uploaded there for now. Nutz and Boltz, Rain Temple, and a new one called Shooting Star. The new one hasn't been accepted yet, but it hopefully will be available for sale on AJ in about a week. A high quality wav with the regular use license can be purchased for $14 at AudioJungle.net.
May 13, 2012 - I removed "Robotz 2" and "Rain Temple" from this site. I'm looking into the opportunities of selling stock audio through AudioJungle.net. I have modified versions of those two tracks pending review in their system, meaning that if they get accepted I'll be selling the rights to use these songs exclusively through AJ and I'll upload watermarked versions of those tracks to this website. If they get rejected I'll probably just re-upload them here under the normal free use license. I'm not really seeing AJ as an opportunity to make money because most musicians that sell stock audio don't tend to make more than a little pocket change, but it is an important step closer to working as a professional soundtrack artist. If it works out then I'll be uploading most of my higher quality tracks to AJ from now on. You'll still be able to find my older music here, as well as my watermarked AJ stuff, plus any new stuff that has lower production quality or is more experimental.
May 7, 2012 - Recorded a new track today called Rain Temple.
May 5, 2012 - Added two new tracks. One is an electronic upbeat track I did a few weeks back called Axial Color Blur. The other was written for an introductory video for a local daycare called PlayPlace.
February 29, 2012 - Added a track called Voltaic Ridge.
February 29, 2012 - Added a piano version of Evening Bells. Haven't had much time for music lately. I've been really busy. I'll get back into recording regularly again soon though.
January 15, 2012 - Added a new track for the Robotz project.
January 6, 2012 - I volunteered to do some tracks for a turn based strategy game called Robotz. I thought it might be a good way to gain some experience. This is just a small non-commercial project and it's still in it's early stages. You can find my first track for this game on the music page. I also made a few small changes to the site today.
December 28, 2011 - Added a new track to misc called Flying Machines. Just a quick recording session. Didn't put much effort into this one.
December 27, 2011 - The 2011 Music Clips Compilation video is online!
December 23, 2011 - Added a shorter version of my Shadowgate remix.
December 21, 2011 - Uploaded my newest piece. It's a remix of the NES classic Shadowgate. It's over ten minutes long, making it the longest track I've ever done. I had to host it on SoundCloud because it was too large to upload to Yola. Check it out and send me feedback on it! I'm planning on submitting it to OCremix for review, so any advice is welcome.
December 12, 2011 - Added a new song called Seasons. Lately I've been incorporating more and more orchestral samples into my work, just playing around with some new styles. With this one I just wanted to take the orchestrated sound and run with it to see what happens. Maybe not my best work, but it didn't turn out too bad. It's five minutes long and it has several short movements within it.
November 28, 2011 - Added a new song to Misc called Weeping Forest. For some reason my Pod X3 keeps crashing while I'm recording with it. I need to mess around with it, maybe try reinstalling the drivers. I think the USB port on it is going out too, so that may have something to do with it. I dunno. In other words I can't work much on Time Bomb right now which is why I've been doing more electronic stuff lately. I did some crappy repair work on my headphones. They're holding up for the time being so I'm happy that I can even write anything at all right now.
November 26, 2011 - Added a new song to Misc called Toyshop.
November 24, 2011 - Rearranged some tracks. I changed the tracklist up for Utopia. I know I said the album was complete, but I was never really happy with the continuity of the album. It's still not perfect, but it's a little better now. If you have the old version of Utopia, delete it and download the new version! I pulled Mud from the tracklist to use with TimeBomb and added some of my newer songs. Other than that I haven't recorded any new tracks lately because my headphones have been broken. Hopefully I get them fixed soon!
November 12, 2011 - Added a new track under Misc called Evening Bells. Also added a Youtube link to a video of Evening Bells ran through MAM (Music Animation Machine).
November 4, 2011 - I added a new song called Solitary. It's a track I started recording several months ago and left it unfinished. I decided to crack it back open and finish it today. Turned out pretty nicely I suppose. It's got a bit of a soft jazz feel throughout most of it.
October 26, 2011 - Created a spot for my current album in progress called Time Bomb. Added a new track to it called Infected, as well as the album intro called Memetic Virus. Made some changes to Broken Mirror and re-uploaded it.
October 21, 2011 - Added a new track in misc called Sorcerer.
October 17, 2011 - Added a new track in misc called Enemies of Reason. It's another fast paced rock / metal song. I might try to do enough of these to put together a short album.
October 12, 2011 - Added a new track in misc called Inner City. It's a fast paced hard rock song. Turned out pretty good. Check it out!
October 10, 2011 - Added a new track in misc called Broken Mirror. This was just a quick recording session. There's not a lot to this one. It's only about a minute and a half long, but it still sounds kinda neat.
October 7, 2011 - Added a new track to the Piano Music album. It's a piano version of one of my older tracks called Sunshine Through the Snow Storm.
October 3, 2011 - Added a new track called Incinerator. This was the result of about an hour of boredom. Didn't put a lot of effort into this one. Doesn't sound too bad though.
October 1, 2011 - Finally got all of the old tracks online, plus the newer ones that I didn't put on the old site. The newer ones are "Fire and Metal" and "At Sea (Piano Version)" so check 'em out if you haven't heard them yet. For now I'm keeping this on a free host, so a few extra features that I added to the site like mailing list updates are disabled. One day I might move to a more fully featured payed host, but for now I'm not wanting to put the money into it. As far as I can tell the website is bug free, but if anyone comes across an error or something then drop me an email about it so I can fix it!
September 21, 2011 - Starting to get the new site online. Right now most of the music isn't online yet. You can still get to the old page along with all the tracks here: Old Music Page
