Materia: New Game+

album-coverOverClocked Records and jazz fusion band Materia are thrilled to present New Game+, a soulful musical journey paying tribute to some of gaming’s most beloved soundtracks. Featuring 23 musicians across 10 tracks, in a team of 27 total people, New Game+ represents a massive achievement, bringing together jazz musicians from around the globe to perform and record an album in the oft forgotten jazz fusion tradition, including an epic 11+-minute arrangement from Chrono Trigger.

All 27 members of the team met through MAGFest, a four day-long festival dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community. Their album is as much of a tribute to MAGFest and the people responsible for it, as it is to the friends they’ve gained through its creation.

I appear as a guest drummer on “Dash (From Final Fantasy 13-2)” and lend additional drum programming/production to “Funkadelus (From Jazz Jackrabbit).”

Sirius Online OST

Slider2

I am currently working on the OST for Sirius Online, a space-based MMO in Early Access on Steam. I have composed three brand-new pieces and licensed a half-dozen of my older compositions. I am in the final stages of composition and will be delivering masters soon. I’ll post an update when the push featuring my music goes live.

From Steam: “Sirius Online is a space-based MMO inspired by Freelancer. Explore Space alone or together with friends and find adventiure, riches or new enemies. Build a gigantic empire or stay a lone assassin for hire. Be a pirate, killing helpless miners or assemble Fleets to protect your friends.”

Dragon Con 2015

I just got back from Dragon Con 2015, where my band Snoot performed 4 times. It was pretty amazing. I met lots of great new friends and partied in ways I didn’t even know were possible.

I last had the opportunity to play Dragon Con in 2011 & 2012 for the Kingdom of Loathing parties and I’ve been wanting to get back in front of those crowds for a few years now. I’m thankful and humbled by the experience. So, so, so, rad.

Hope to see you there in 2016.
