I am a professional composer working in Los Angeles, CA. While I score for film, television and videogames, I'm most well known for collaborating with several highly popular YouTube artists. Working with Wong Fu Productions, NigaHiga, KevJumba and Michelle Phan has been fun and rewarding.
The inspiration for my new studio album “Spoiler Alert” comes from working with young musicians like the ones in The Irvine Young Concert Artists Orchestra. Through my experiences recording with them and musicians like David Choi, I realized that linking their social media interests with their musical ones would be a new and exciting way to further their education. Not only would young musicians be able to record a professional studio album, but they would also be able to use music to connect with each other through online videos of their session. You can see them in action playing on one of Michelle Phan's films here:
“Spoiler Alert” as a concept asks the question, “What kind of music would entice me to watch a film?” The album will feature short tracks like those you would hear in trailers for epic and dramatic films. As a composer, some of my favorite cinematic scores are “Star Wars” by John Williams, “Back to the Future” by Alan Silvestri and “The Incredibles” by Michael Giacchino and as you can imagine, having the privilege of being hired to compose at that level is a career goal of mine. You can hear some ideas I've been working on here:
Our Kickstarter campaign proceeds will go towards a June recording date at The Bridge Studios in Glendale, CA, the mixing/mastering, hiring a graphic designer to do the album artwork and duplicating CDs of the album. Any funds beyond our goal will go towards additional recording/mixing, hiring a documentary camera crew to shoot and edit video of the recording session, and other miscellaneous costs in producing an album. Thank you all in advance and I hope to bring you “Spoiler Alert” this summer!
