SCORING / PRODUCTION MUSIC

For many years, I recorded and performed complicated and weird rock music under the names Sir Millard Mulch and Dr. Zoltan Obelisk. Notable fans of my records include Devin Townsend, Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle, Steve Vai, and Mike Keneally. Musician guests have included Marco Minnemann, Virgil Donati, and Dave Meros of Spock’s Beard.

Always a fan of science fiction / fantasy / superhero adventure films, I’m now building a catalog of modern orchestral music for TV / films / video games.

My academic background includes studying Composition and Orchestration for Film & TV through Berklee College of Music, and Composition at State College of Florida.

OLD ALBUM SAMPLERS

Kerrang

“Jokey prog work-outs to entertain and enlighten you through laughter.”

Modern Drummer

“Extraordinarily creative… Insanely entertaining… Extreme compositional excess. Ingenious, indignant, cerebral cacophony.”

Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad)

“You poor motherfucker. You can quote me on that.”

Trey Spruance (Mr. Bungle / Faith No More / Secret Chiefs 3)

“It’s like Stravinsky, only CRAZIER!”

Steve Vai

“…The world should hear it but unfortunately the world is brainwashed right now. …wild stuff, boy!”

DRUM! Magazine

“Utterly Unperformable. Bizarre.”

Mike Keneally

“You sick bastard. That stuff sounds fantastic!”

Bryan Beller (Mike Keneally, Dweezil Zappa, Steve Vai)

“You are one freaked out dude. My word.”

Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big, Racer X)

“Wow, that music is crazy! I’m jealous of your many articulate opinions. I struggle with being articulate on many issues. But I can talk passionately about Alex Van Halen and Ringo Starr using big washy cymbals. Hopefully this will redeem me when I most need it.”

Scott Thunes (Frank Zappa, The Vandals)

“Someone I know needs to switch to decaf.”

Decibel Magazine

“For your fucked up tastes, you might just have found the most entertaining album ever. Seriously.”
