Hey everyone. Just writing in to let you all know that I’m not dead. Things have been awfully slow in the last few weeks so there hasn’t been a lot to report. Little things have happened here and there, but I’m beginning to feel the need to be doing something. So I’ll give you a few little updates until something actually happens.
Firstly, as a continuation of my last post, the song I was previewing has been completed, entitled ‘Quest for Asia’. I am very pleased with the new sound and am excited to start getting feedback on it. I’m trying a new way of sharing my music on this blog, so if anyone can’t play the files, please let me know and I’ll switch back to the old way of doing things.
Next, after a bit of a lull, I got a new commercial to score for Google. This one tells a bit of an uplifting story and they were looking for more traditional instruments, so this one really appealed to me. Here’s the music I came up with.
The interesting thing that happened recently is that I received an email out of the blue from Robert Kral. Robert is the one I met during the fellowship working on the Scooby Doo cartoons. He asked me if I had made it to California okay, and was interested in getting more music of mine sent to him. I had already given him a CD of some of my stuff when I met with him. I can’t help but wonder why he wants to hear more of my work if he’s not looking for help. I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but this is certainly a promising lead.
I am also currently working on a Disney-themed project that I can’t speak too much about right now. It’s a personal project, but I have hopes that it may open a few doors for me. This project has both instrumental and vocal sections, so it will definitely be an exciting one. I’ll keep you updated once things take a bit more shape.
Finally, I’ve been here for 2 months now, and I’m at that point where I simply need something to do. I’ve started looking for any kind of work in the area just to keep me busy and give me a little spending cash until one of these composer leads pays off. I’m confident by all the feedback I’ve been getting that it’s only a matter of time now, so the idea of temporary work doesn’t seem so bad. Hopefully I’ll have some good news for you all soon.
