So fast forward to now, and I’m happy to announce that I wrote the Multiplayer Menu music (“Adrenaline” and “Spiderbot” on […] More »

Back in 2009/2010 when I was working with Wall of Sound on BioWare’s epic Sci-Fi action/RPG Mass Effect 2, there were a number of tracks that came about to various degrees of completion.  Since Jack Wall was the lead composer, everything went by him first and then he’d provide feedback and then if it passed his approval, it was submitted to BioWare.  Thus, I ended up […] More »

Heroes vs Villains

This post is actually a little late, but I was recently involved in the free fan-produced video game music arrangement album, Heroes vs. Villains!  Challenged by the legendary video game music arranger and Bad Dude Mazedude, I took on the theme of s3xy Super Metroid heroine Samus Aran on the OCR side.  There’s tons of amazing music on this album, and I did mention it’s free […] More »

I actually missed the release of this, but I’m especially proud of this final bonus soundtrack of previously unreleased music from the game.  Why?  Because on this particular album, I worked on 9 of the 14, including personal favorites like “Infiltration” and “The Long Walk”.   So that’s now an extra 14 tracks, clocking it at over 33 minutes of new music. I believe that makes the […] More »


Today EA released this expansion to the OST, now including 9 tracks at nearly 25 minutes of additional music from the game, all for only $4 US!  As the title suggests, these tracks are more atmospheric in nature, including cues from loading screenes, menus, conversations, explorations, etc.  This release coincides with their DLC Layer of the Shadowbroker.  Pick them up today!
