Having recently been hired to write the music soundtrack for a video game, which is currently under development, I have found myself with a renewed interest in perhaps pursuing more film music opportunities. And to that end, I just completed an online masterclass with film composer Hans Zimmer, which helped me to develop a set of demo cues that will perhaps help me to find interest within the film making community for my music. You can check out those cues HERE. Although there is a huge amount of competition and absolutely no guarantees whatsoever of success, I am following up on a few leads and potential insider help to at least crack the door open just a bit. More to come on that hopefully soon!
I have also been more focused on writing works of a different dramatic nature. I am trying my hand at opera, which is something that I have always been somewhat intrigued with. I remember during my undergradute days at Tennessee being told by a friend that if I ever wrote opera he would kill me. Sorry to disappoint, David, but here goes! I have applied for several opportunities (commissions, apprenticeships, etc.) that I am hopeful will come to fruition. I have also made a rather happenstance acquantance and potential collabrative arrangement that I am exploring in the writing of a chamber opera. I'm not going to spill the beans on it just yet, but stay tuned for an exciting development that I will share in the not too distant future!
Blah Blah Blahg . . .
