Happy Thanksgiving!

A quick update - Small Town Monsters is now being distributed through Terror films which means the films are now being distributed in new places such as iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, and the PlayStation and Xbox stores. So check that out if you haven’t seen them yet!

I have updated the Press section of this website with some new pieces, including an interview on a radio show called Beyond the Edge I did with some of the team from STM, which was a lot of fun.

As far as what I’m working on goes, I’m currently scoring the new Small Town Monsters film, “The Flatwoods Monster” which is due out in April 2018. The Director has asked me to go very 1950’s science fiction with the score, so I’m having a lot of fun researching old Herrmann scores and using instruments like the theremin. I’ve also been commissioned by the music library company Current Music to write four cues for action movie trailers that will be featured on an album and on their website for content creators to license for use in their own projects. Very excited to be working with them.

And finally, I wanted to share a new playlist I put together entitled “Walking Around Los Angeles at Night”. I often find myself out on walks around the city at the end of the day, to clear my head and to get some exercise after a long day in the studio. It’s also one of the few times during my day I get to be alone and to listen to music. I spent a lot of time crafting this playlist; it feels melancholic, dark, ambient, sad, hopeful...all the feelings one has when walking at night through the city alone. There’s something magical about Los Angeles that’s hard to explain; a very unique feeling when you travel through it at night. I tried to encapsulate that feeling in this playlist. If you’re interested in hearing it, check it out below or search for its title on Spotify.  

 

Thanks again for the support and see you soon!

Hey guys! 

Today is the release day for the inaugural episode of the new web series from Small Town Monsters called "CaseFiles". This series will expand upon stories briefly covered in prior Small Town Monsters movies and will feature some of my cues from those films. 

Episode one, titled "Cold", is now available and features an eye-opening interview with the daughter of Woodrow Derenberger; the eyewitness who met Indrid Cold prior to the Mothman case of 1966. You can watch all of the episodes as they're released on the Small Town Monsters YouTube channel here. You can also hear some of my cues that are used in this series here

Happy (late) Halloween!

I thought I could do something special for this one and recorded a voiceover commentary on the creation of the soundtrack for those who might be interested. In it, I talk about my writing process and tell some behind the scenes stories on the making of. Check it out below.

Welcome to My New Website!

Hi there!

The new website has been born. My pal Joe McKay designed the website, and I’m so glad that he did, not only because he did a good job on it, but also because IT’S ABOUT TIME that I get a website going to document my work in film music.

My aim with the website is to keep it updated with all of the fun stuff that I’ve worked on or am working on, but also to share behind the scenes photos, videos, and commentary on sets or in the studio as I work on each new project. I’ll also occasionally update on music networking events and shows that I’m a part of as well so that you can see what I’m up to here in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for new content!

If you’re interested in hiring me or working with me on a project, or you’re a fan of the music, or anything in between, don’t hesitate to send me an email through the “Contact” section and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Brandon
