In January, I attempted to participate in The Cue Tube | Score Relief 2021 Scoring Competition, but again (like the WestWorld Scoring Competition) when I tried to upload it to YouTube (right at the deadline), for some reason it had none of my music. I took the opportunity to continue to work on it, and I am much happier with this version, even though most people probably couldn’t tell the difference between this version and the older one. Also, I have no idea what I did differently to make YouTube upload the video along with my music, so… live and learn?? I hope you enjoy it!
Back in October, I participated in SA Recordings‘ Recompose competition, which was to take one of the songs from Alev Lenz‘s album ‘3’ and rearrange it. I chose “The Runner” and arranged it for rock trio and orchestra. I hope you enjoy it!
At the beginning of June, I participated in theSpitfire Audio | WestWorld Scoring Competition where I had to score a chase scene from season 3 of WestWorld. When I tried to upload it to YouTube, for some reason it had none of my music (maybe because I used YouTube’s new uploader). Since I uploaded it right at the deadline, unfortunately there was no time to fix it. Eventually I did get the version with my music uploaded (using YouTube’s older uploader). I hope you enjoy it!
A while back, I joined a group on Facebook that does competitions for composers every few weeks. This was the description of the most recent challenge:
A Jeep chase through the jungle, enemies starting close behind you, then falling out of sight. Just when you think you are safe, the enemies approach you from a place you didn’t expect!
The ending should tell us the story of how the chase ends!
My submission, Jungle Jeep Chase, won!
Check out the write-up that Sam McLean did on his website. You should follow him and listen to his music, too. It’s great!
