AI Music Videos

This song was made to experiment with the AI image and video generator Kaiber. I wanted to use the music and lyrics to inspire the prompting and the style. It is all about pianos in victorian gardens or overgrown roman ruins. There are some rodents and skulls. There is an unplanned change in gender throughout the video. I wanted the style to be reminiscent of Odilon Redon's pastels and Roman Fresco. I shot a video in three different angles, then used Kaiber's transform function. I also used image generation for the 'zoom in' scenes. It came out beautiful, surreal, and a little creepy. 

This music was created by designing randomly generated patterns of a mix of found sound and synthetic sounds. There are crickets, porch chimes, chanting monks, marimbas, and a string quartet. The sounds are represented visually as comets, astrolabes, deep sea fish, and spiralling architecture created with Kaiber. This is intended as an enhancing evocative backdrop for study or writing, quiet contemplative times, or sleep.

Scoring for Theater

I composed music for "The Pastisserie", a fantastic profound slapstick production created by Theater Artibus in Denver. The show ran from September to October 2023 at the Savoy Theater.


This is a complicated scene in which an unsuspected employee is subjected to having memories extracted from his mind to be made into chocolates and sold to the public. The extraction is conveyed in shadow puppetry. The employee lives out a memory of his first snow, and then is brought back into the extraction process. Then he lives out a memory of his first dance with his love. Ultimately, he has to choose which memory will be used by the factory, and give up that memory forever. The memory is put into a grinder and turned into a powder. This was such a great composition project, with many different ways to utilize music. In this clip, I made a kind of montage sound for the shadow puppet scenes. Music from the employee's life- "Singing in the Rain" and "Sentimental Reasons" were referenced in the memories and composed into the montage scenes.

This is a scene in which an unsuspecting fellow is roped into being employed by a factory that extracts memories and makes them in to chocolate. The music is intended to help the players keep time, and changes based on the department of the factory that is being featured.

Scoring for short videos and commercials

I composed music for several short videos about the recovery stories of two patients from Craig Hospital. The music had to encompass the client's life before an accident, the traumatic accident, and recovery. The videos were filmed in 360 and presented as virtual reality experiences in fundraisers across the United States.

This short commercial for a Colorado hemp company required a warm, nostalgic, folky sound.

Working with the innovative modern dance/ballet company Wonderbound has put me into some wonderful creative situations. With Chimney Choir, I have scored two full length productions- Boomtown and Aphrodite’s Switchboard. Creating a score for a ballet is a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary process, and an incredibly rewarding experience. 

Creating, scoring, and performing in immersive experiences:

The Dream Show

This was a culmination of immersive theater techniques over a series of shows at the Mercury Café in Denver. We used a mix of interactive animation and film. Gigantic puppets were constructed, and a small army of actors portrayed characters in the audience. We also incorporated choreographed ballet and virtual reality. 

Zabiti- an immersive theatrical circus arts experience

In collaboration with the circus arts collective Rainbow Militia, I scored and designed sound for the immersive performance art piece ‘Zabiti’. Set in a mythical forest, this soundtrack needed to be fantastic and evocative. The audience had times where they could freely wander through a large warehouse space, and other times in which dramatic scenes told an unfolding story. The soundtrack was designed in spatial audio and utilized three different sound systems throughout the warehouse. Cues in the looping music directed the performers and established a time structure.

I composed a score to accompany a storytelling podcast. The story was a fantastic, profound, and child-like allegorical story that required a whimsical and dynamic soundtrack. It was created for Honey Comb Healing.

Scoring for orchestra

In May of 2017 I had the opportunity to compose and arrange original music performed by the Colorado Symphony in a collaboration with Wonderbound and Chimney Choir. Although we were not able to access the recording, this article by local newspaper 'Westword' is a testament to this lovely experience.
