Hello! Happy to say I finally got my hands on the footage of my piece Treehouse of Leaves, performed by the Orchestre Symphonique de l'Isle:

I've released two episodes of my podcast, Bards of Gaming, with the third soon to come. I've had a blast interviewing video game composers and hearing their music, and can't wait to do more! The first season of the podcast will be ten episodes. Follow @GameOfBards on Twitter. Check out the Intro and Outro music for the podcast:

 

I also wrote a short new piece this week:

↑Art by Anna De Cicco. She has some incredible work, definitely check out her website! She's also responsible for the awesome podcast logo for Bards of Gaming.

Work continues on the FioTactics music, we're recording some mandolin this week, so more to come soon!

I'll also be working on some specialized composition techniques for school, so watch out for some microtonal stuff in the near future as well some symmetrical-scale work.

There's a lot of great stuff happening with Montreal's New Music Festival in the next two weeks, be sure to check it out if you live in the area.

Thanks for reading!
