Happy (almost almost) beginning of summer!
Things are buzzing here: the weather has gotten wonderfully summery and warm here in NYC, just the way I like it, and I'm working on a bunch of really exciting projects.
A new album is on the way!! And this one is very, very dear to my heart. It will be a collection of piano arrangements from Joe Hisaishi's incredible scores to Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli anime movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, etc. I've been a fan of those movies since I was little (My Neighbor Totoro was in fact one of the first movies I recall seeing as a child, and I have since seen it countless times), and the music from the movies brings me back to my childhood every time. I can't wait to share this recording with you when it's done! This time around I'll be adding some of my own arrangements to the mix, something I've just started doing and having a lot of fun with.
Further, I've been commissioned for the very first time to write my own arrangement of a video game soundtrack piece, which will be featured on a video game music compilation album set to release in December this year! The album will be called "The 8-bit Time Paradox" and will feature 8 different game musicians and their covers of different game songs. I'm really excited to be working on this project and can't wait to show you my finished song!
I've also started working on a few collaborations with fellow game musicians. I will update you on that very soon. :-)
In the mean time, below are some of my latest music video releases. I hope you enjoy them!
Thank you for your support always.
