“Miniatures” Release Series Now Available

The first two installments of a digital release series I am calling “Miniatures” are now available via Bandcamp. The series is an effort to compile and make available some of the music I have composed for film and TV since 2002.

These pieces are short and some¬†have a sketch-like quality – film cues are usually 1-2 minutes at most – and I wanted to present this music as it was performed and recorded for the scores, rather than re-arrange them or flesh the pieces out for the release. The first two are the most recent soundtrack projects: the documentary “Private Violence” which will air on HBO this fall and the PBS show “A Chef’s Life.” I hope you enjoy them. More coming soon!
