You Are the Pan – Hook

Anyone who grew up in the 90s has probably seen Spielberg’s highly underrated classic Hook, which remains one of my favorite films that deal with nostalgia, growing up, and embracing the future.

The soundtrack is by the ever-wonderful John Williams. Someone recently requested some sheet music for You Are the Pan, so I created some.

Pushing Onwards – VVVVVV

I’ve loved VVVVVV since it came out and took hold of my free time. I still have to beat Veni, Vedi, Vici…

I’ve wanted to play Pushing Onwards forever. I chose UnofficialSoundtrack‘s arrangement. Sheet music available for free: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/23040402/Pushing%20Onwards.pdf.

There is also a different version out there by arranger and musician Brent Kennedy. His version is more of an arrangement than a reduction – which this performance is. I will never have the dexterity that @UnofficialSoundtrack has. Have a listen to his performance… which is much cleaner and much more epic:

Pushing Onwards, along with the rest of the fantastic VVVVVV soundtrack was composed by Magnus Pålsson.

L.A. Noire Main Theme

My love for Rockstar Games dates back to GTA2, so I quite naturally had a blast watching people play L.A. Noire. Andrew Hale’s fantastic soundtrack has been the sound-scape backdrop of my workday for the past few weeks.

I was quite happy when someone commissioned me (quite a while ago) to arrange the Main Theme from the soundtrack. Here is a rough transcription for a basic jazz ensemble: alto sax, trumpet, piano/keyboard, vibraphone, bass. Drums omitted, sorry.

Game, soundtrack, logo, and everything L.A. Noire is © Rockstar Games. You guys rock.

Arrival at Aslan’s How – Chronicles of Narnia

Here is another recently finished commission: piano sheet music for the song Arrival at Aslan’s How, from Disney‘s Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. © Wonderland Music Company. I think I can honestly say that no other film composer does what Harry Gregson-Williams does with counter-melodies, harmonies, and melodic structure. Perhaps I just have a thing for polyharmony.
