If you didn’t know, I used to do quite a bit of story writing before I started writing music, and I find that the creative processes for both are very similar. Hopefully an inspiration will come to me soon enough.
It sure is a stormy night, and a friend of mine showed this to me, and I immediately fell in love with the song. I hope you will too.

I wish to write something as great as this one day. Yes, I realize that this piece was written by arguably the greatest film composer of all time, but hey, I can dream, right?
This is a piano piece I wrote quite a while back. It’s a little more repetitive and much shorter than most of my pieces, but for some reason it sticks with me.
You can’t deny that the music in this trailer is beautiful, and is essential to the delivery of the right mood to the audience. Music in films and games are design to do just that: get the mood across to the audience.
The composer for the Halo video game franchise is Martin O’Donnell, and he is an amazing composer. Because I’m a big gamer, I of course play Halo, and I appreciate much of the great music in the games. He talks about his inspirations, his use of various instruments, and his history in many of the interviews that I’ve seen, and it’s all greatly inspiring.
To finish, this piece of his is perhaps the most emotional piece of music ever composed for a video game.
Our Pep Band will be playing this song in the city parade in June.
As far as “dreams” go, I aspire to be like them one day.
