If an picture is worth a thousand words and a sound a thousand images, the power of both working together should be handled carefully. I have always loved visual art. More specifically, I enjoy seeing how the meaning and intention of a piece can radically change depending on the music and sound accompanying it. The wrong chord can destroy the intended message but the right one will make it unforgettable and impactful.
Even though I scored and produced the music for the following clips, none of the original commercial versions include my music in them.

Thinking about audio implementation, coding and audio middleware even before writing a note is critical for the success of the music. Here, you will find examples of vertical layering and transition techniques used in composition and implementation.
