Although my education, career, and portfolio fall more into the category of Visual Arts or Visual Communication, I also have a passion for composing digital music for use in video and multimedia content. The selections below were composed using GarageBand as the recording platform. In most projects I prefer to record my own percussions and melodies. I only use GarageBand’s loops sparingly while emphasizing multi-track construction, use of the automation controls, and extensive use of the smart control panels. These songs are from a personal collection I was compiling during 2020 and 2021. Since it is sort of spacey, my impromptu name for the entire collection is Lunar Vacay RPG Fantasies:

Angel Nebula

Chill electronic sound with a tropical getaway vibe

Devious Plan

A combo of classic rock and various lead synthesizers and other electronic sounds.

Inside the Triangles

Ethereal poly-synth layers, strings, and appregiators with a custom beat and leading harp
