As many are already
aware, the time of Lucasarts has unfortunately drawn to a close.
I am profoundly honored to have worked for over five years with
some of the most talented and passionate developers in the game
industry, and wish each and every one of them the greatest
success in wherever their careers take them.
As for me, I am now devoting all of my time to my career as an
independent, freelance composer. So if you have an interesting
project and are interested in my music, drop me a line!

very happy to announce that Star
Wars: The Old Republic won two Game Audio Network Guild
awards this year! We won Best Soundtrack, and a piece I co-wrote
with composer Gordy Haab won the award for Best Original:
Instrumental. I'm extremely grateful to have had the opportunity
to write for this game in the first place, and especially happy
that our music team's efforts are being recognized by our peers
in the game audio community.

Continuing the game's soundtrack promotion, Bioware has released
one of my planet themes from Star
Wars: The Old Republic. Today's release is

realities of life. The rest of the Tython music is a mixture of
timid suspense music and honorable "memories" of the classic
Force Theme and Jedi Order Theme (which itself is based on

As part of the
game's promotion, Lucasarts and Bioware are releasing one track
per day from Star Wars: The Old
Republic's orchestral score until the game ships, freely
available on their Youtube and Facebook pages. The first track,
Mandalorian Blockade", features music from me as well as
Mark Griskey, Gordy Haab, and Lennie Moore - my music is the
thematic choral action cue from 3:45 to the end in this track.
More to come!
All three of the
games I worked on last year at LucasArts are nominated for
Game Audio Network Guild
awards! Big congrats to the Monkey Island 2 SE, Star Wars:
Force Unleashed 2, and Star Wars: Old Republic teams - to date
those are the three games I'm most proud of.
