Industry Experience

Media & Entertainment
    uniE608 Live Action Score | Afterimages [Selected Scene]
    My original score cue from the indie film "Afterimages" directed by Cole Bacani. To hear more of my cues from the Afterimages soundtrack, go to: maiacomposer.com/afterimages
    uniE608 Animation Score | Spring
    This is a scoring of a public domain animation by The Blender Foundation. I wrote this composition for 27-piece orchestra. I decided to create a melody-driven piece, forming a "signature" for the film via thematic music. I used chimes, harp, and flute as embellishing tones at magical moments (i.e. when our protagonist performs spells.) In soaring, momentous parts, I featured flute folk techniques in the form of scoops, microtones, trills, and grace notes to resemble timbral qualities of the Celtic flute, which is an ancient wooden folk instrument - though the girl's clothes are modern, I interpreted the ruins and landscapes depicted in this film, perhaps as dating back to a pre-Neolithic Ireland, which inspired a few of my compositional decisions. Full short film. #composer #animatedfilmcomposer #animation #musiccomposer #filmcomposer #orchestralcomposition #orchestra
    uniE608 Animation Score | For Papa
    I composed this original score for animators Adriana Sanchez and Josie Stocks. I wanted to create a rustic, natural, nostalgic feeling, as the animation takes place in a forest with no paved roads and warm dappled sunshine. No big orchestra or synth overlay; just an acoustic duet for piano and guitar, fit for a whimsical young radish in the woods! Full short film.
