The Musical Assassin
A mimetic knack once led me to be called a musical assassin.
With this in mind I am developing a budding portfolio of non-art music. Essentially functional music for film, television, video-games, web related stuff and other potential uses. Presently I am working with limited samples (Logic Pro 9.1.8) so these examples here are primarily to showcase my compositional technique, stylistic diversity and ability to work quite fast.

alla Amélie Poulain.
