Coiled Up…

New music posted!

My instrumental-only cover of Lacuna Coil’s original song “Swamped” from their album Comalies (the song is also available for download in Rock Band) has been posted to the right.  It is currently the 2nd song in the list.

Remember: I am looking for singers to mix into this track, so if you think you’ve got the chops (and a mic), record a raw track of yourself singing any of the parts (no reverb, no additional sounds) and I will mix them in and post that track here as well!  Think of this as a tribute to one of the hardest working bands in the world.

Make an MP3 of your vocals, and send them to my email address: rtoomim (at) cagames (dot) com.

New audio: “On the Clock”

July 21st, 2009 Comments off

This piece is setup for a TV drama-style montage, but is originally for a puzzle game.  Thinking music, if you will.  Quite simply, it is a wandering, arpeggiated piano with a cello and the piano playing the melody, then the xylophone taking over the arpeggio when the piano passes itself the melodic line (or counter melody…however you prefer to see it).  It’s in the player to the right, and as always: comments are welcome!

New audio: “…and Found” – Inspired by ABC’s LOST

ABC's "LOST"

ABC's "LOST"

There was a little contest going on in the guise of “fan appreciation” for ABC’s hit show LOST, and I found out about it last night.  Unfortunately, the contest ends tonight, but I decided to send my entry off anyway to see if they might accept it 8 hours late (next day air FTW).  Regardless, you all get to hear what I can do when pressed for time (and with a 60-second time limit…not that many of my works on the site go much longer than that).  It should be in the player to the right side of the page.  This short piece entitled “…and Found” is meant to run during a title sequence if one existed, and was inspired entirely by Michael Giacchino’s work on the show.  I hope some of his expertise rubbed off on me!  The man is a gold mine right now, so I could stand to learn from someone making as much money as he is.

I will amend an instrument list later if anyone is interested.

New audio: “The Quest”

EWQL's "Play" being used with Ableton Live

Just updated the player with a new song called “The Quest”. This is my first real attempt at bringing a choir into the mix, and I’m relatively satisfied with it. It was created with the game Domain of Heroes (created by Tandem Games) in mind.  Seeing as DoH is a Web-browser game with no music, I wanted something that I thought might run well with a cut scene introduction.  Check out the game here: http://www.domainofheroes.com/, and the track is in the player to the right.
