An 8 minute silent film by J. Dillon Flanagan. Music was composed in the classical-Parisian style using live string quartet, accordion, flute, and percussion. The music evokes the sense of a lovely waltz at times and a frantic comedic romp at others. Special thanks to James Anderson, Rose Sciaroni, Julia Immel, and Julia Cory for their contribution as performers on this project.
The Natural Order of Things
A 30 minute Chinese film directed by Van Alan Blumreich. Music was composed in an evocative oriental style utilizing an Erhu and several other other instruments from the far east. The music is plaintive and haunting as the main character struggles with loss.
A 5 minute comic short by the website Rooster Teeth. Cheesy romantic orchestral music was created to bring this video to a new level of goofy.
For the launch of a new website design at Videogamer.com, a video was made introducing people to the new layout of the website. With that, came an awesome intro video taking you through three iconic video game eras (pong, mario, first-person shooter) in about 10 seconds. The music grows with the image from bleeps to chip-sounds to rocking instruments.
This is the trailer for a 20 minute film directed by Van Alan Blumreich. The music for the trailer is evocative of that used in the film, gritty and sombre, utilizing a reverse-rhodes sound at the heart of a teen-angst pop/orchestral style.
