Morsel #24: Finally, Dogs.

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 #22: More Noir! More Cats!

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 #21: Borzage!

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 #20: Noir-Toon!

Morsel #20: Noir-Toon! – You know when cartoon squirrels want to pretend they’re 1940s Humphrey-Bogart-Maltese-Falcon-y gumshoes? Yeah, you do. Here’s some music I wrote for when that happens.

Morsel #19 – Skydiving and Math

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.

Morsel #18 – Running

Morsel #18 – Running: I wrote this for a TV spot that featured a jogger out for a pre-dawn run in the city. Since I have little to no experience with that sort of insanity – and intend to keep it that way – composing this music was a true test of my imagination.

Morsel #17 – The Ultimate Hurt/Omelette.

Morsel #17 – The Ultimate Hurt/Omelette: Nothing shakes off those mid-winter doldrums like an omelette. For Hardee’s, recorded in Nashville, lyrics by Austin Howe, produced by Cathy Curran, who is also my sister.

Morsel #15 – All Aboard the Yule Log.

Morsel #15 – All Aboard the Yule Log: Season’s Greetings. Here’s some holiday music I wrote. I hope it conjures the warmest visions of sugarplums, latkes and gingerbread. Also maybe a plate of various tasty cheeses.
