Morsel #27: Ode to Hairless Cat. It might seem a strange coincidence that someone who loves cats, volunteers at a cat rescue and generally enjoys all things feline would come to compose music for an animated series about cats. Superhero cats, no less. Strange, yes. Also, true. The series is called The Nine Lives of Claw, and a few episodes are streaming now, here. And here (actually, that’s a link to the Kidsflix app, which you need to view it there). My most recent Morsel is from the episode “Something Sphynx.” Also, check out the music with video on my Work page.
Morsel #26: And Now for Something Completely Different. You were expecting a Morsel O’ Film Music, perhaps? Nope. This time, it’s a Morsel O’ Song Demo. Song written by Patricia Bahia and Betty Lawrence; arranged/produced by me. Click on that button to hear it. By the way, if you have a song you want produced/arranged/otherwise spruced up, we should talk. What else…oh, right, there’s a new animation clip on my Work page, so check that out, too.
Morsel #25: One Minute, Many Moods. Look, Tim’s Morsel O’ Music’s 25th post! No gifts please (which as you know, means, yes gifts, thank you). To celebrate, here’s a Morsel O’ Many Moods in a Minute, animation style. This was for an episode where I had to compose for very short scenes of an urban environment, drama, mystery and action — and make sure it all held together, stylistically. I hope you love love love it.
Morsel #24: Finally, Dogs. See, you don’t know me. Just when you think it’s gonna be all cats all the time…dogs. Okay, to be fair, there is a cat in the scene — but it’s mostly dogs. And gangster dogs at that. I hope you enjoy the next two minutes and 27 seconds of gangster dog/superhero cat/balls-of-yarn-might-be-involved chase music.
Morsel #23: More Noir! More Cats! – Is there a connection between my love of cats, having three cats, volunteering/being a board member at a cat rescue and ending up writing more music for cats than your average composer person? I’m sure not. Here’s another piece I wrote recently for a very top-secret game about 1940s cat detectives.
Morsel #22: The Dentist – Trigger Warning: If getting your teeth cleaned terrifies you, this music may hit too close to home. But definitely listen to it anyway. I wrote it for a new animated series I’m working on called The Nine Lives of Claw.
Morsel #21: Borzage! – Sounds like something you yell right before you crash into something. Also, it’s the last name of a legendary director (first name Frank), who made a silent film I got to score a few years back for Fox, called Lazybones. Here’s some pastoral acoustic music to take the edge off. Featuring Bryan Pezzone, piano; Sheridon Stokes, flute; John Goux, guitar.
Morsel #19: Skydiving and Math – In this retro-styled animation I scored for abcmouse.com, skydivers fly in formation, while solving math problems. If that had been me skydiving, the only problem I’d be trying to solve is how to not poop my pants. Also, this features the very talented Fino Roverato on guitar.
