As a long time fan of X Japan and Yoshiki, I was very excited to hear that he was doing an opening to attack on Titan with Hyde. Red Swan is a beautiful song that inspired me to make this video along with the classic hard hitting opening for Attack on Titan, 紅蓮の弓矢. Hope you'll enjoy!
After many gigs and performances, Nick and I have finally found time to record another medley! This time, it’s songs from Mama Mia! It was a fun process to figure out how to approach this, and we are excited to add this song to our repertoire. Enjoy!
Watch an in depth behind the scenes explanation to an arrangement cover of “Don’t Think Think Twice” by Utada Hikaru, a Kingdom Hearts III Theme Song.
Along with The Legend Of Mindi , I also composed for another short film at the same time. This one is called Like Right Now , Directed by Russell Eresmas and Mindi herself Dianne Mahoney. The story tells of Martin, an average guy who learns an important lesson about the consequences of time travelling.
It was hard not to laugh during the recording process but eventually it all worked out and here is the final product! Hope you all enjoy my 80's party music!
For a more behind the scenes look at the film, visit the Storyhive page at:
Back in July, I composed for a short film called The Legend of Mindi. The film tells a story about Mindi, a gamer, whose quest is to find a job while at the same time, battling her own with difficulties with cognitive and behavioural skills. She associates the challenges and difficulties that she faces along the way with the challenges she faces in video games, and in her own world finds determination and courage.
Now the Storyhive version is finally out! Here it is!

I had a fantastic time scoring for this project, and it was even more fun working with familiar friends from Alpacalypse Productions. I had a great time meeting the cast and crew and working with them to make this project happen!
Thank you Alpacalypse for the opportunity and Storyhive by Telus for making this happen!
In high anticipation of Kingdom Hearts III coming out soon (and finally having a release date), I decided to put together this arrangement/remix of classic Kingdom Hearts themes and the official theme song for Kingdom Hearts III "Don't Think Twice" or "誓い" by Utada Hikaru.

I spent my 420 putting together this arrangement of the new God of War game, which is not just a masterpiece for the series but for video games and narrative media in general. I loved Bear McCreary's creation for the new entry in the series, the music really added so much emotion and power to the game that is just too intoxicating to not try and involve myself with. Once again, thanks to PJ Tan for sponsoring this video!
This was a favourite of mine ever since I heard it a few months back and continued to hear during my trip with Kat to Japan. We decided to incorporate some footage we took on the trip in this video as well.

I promised that this would be out before I left for a 2 week trip to Japan, and now after 2 weeks of writing, going back and forth grabbing instruments (thank you PJ Tan & Son Violin Shop), and writing, it's finally complete! The music is just too epic to not cover!
Destiny 2 in itself is a fun and fantastic game (brilliantly polished and optimized as well), but the soundtrack caught me completely off guard. I was so inspired by it soundtrack that I felt like I had to get involved in it. So I came up with this orchestral arrangement/re-orchestration for some of my most favourite Destiny 2 soundtracks. I hope you'll enjoy!

One thing you guys may not know about me is that I really enjoy gaming. Now that music for me has moved from a hobby to a profession, one of my favourite hobby and past times became video games. This is a merge of both my music and video game interest, a medley of music from the triple A video game series God of War by Sony Santa Monica and composed by Gerard Marino with me playing...everything
Composed by: Joe Hisaishi

I've been working with members of the University of Alberta Symphony, MacEwan Music Faculty, and Edmonton Chinese Philharmonic Orchestra to play 2 of my original pieces. One will be for a string quartet, and another one is a blues inspired piece for an ensemble. This is by far the biggest band I've ever put together and I am so happy and so proud of the results that I heard during rehearsals. At the same time, I will be playing in one of my friend's composer's piece. You can catch all the pieces here! It was one of the best experiences of being on stage I've ever had. Thank you to everyone who came out to watch! Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did!
