I thought I was done composing! I was wrong. After completing Symphony No. 4 (Kasufhetep I), I composed a 7-minute work about a doll collection over a span of three days. It’s a haunting, awe-inspiring work if you ask me. It’s written for percussion, harp, celesta, children’s chorus, and strings.

Below are the current books I’m reading.


Music that I’ve been listening to recently are Guan Xia’s “Requiem for the Earth” and Dmitri Shostakovich “Symphony No. 10“. It’s a no brainer that since I’m reading O’Callaghan’s book that I’m listening to and re-studying Jerry Goldsmith’s film score to the 1968 classic, Planet of the Apes.

Well, that’s about it as I push to add concert performances to my schedule, acquire new composer commissions, film scoring/orchestration and video game scoring opportunities.


Until next time
