Qi is a fascinating documentary that demystifies the Eastern concept of energy known as Qi (“chi”). Featuring solos by world-class musicians Tina Guo (cello) and Gina Luciani (flute), the score relies on orchestral motors based on three acoustic and processed pianos (performed by the composer), harp (performed by Lara Somogyi), and various percussive instruments. Power and depth are underscored by the use of thunderous world percussions such as frame drums, dolhs, toms, taikos, and various bass drums. Listen to the album.
The score to The Housemaid is decisively thematic and written primarily for a live ensemble comprised of a string quintet, flute, oboe, harp, and piano, complimented by various synthetic libraries of effects, ambiences, small percussion, and vocals. It also features dark, screechy, and powerful moments representative of the film’s thriller and horror elements. Listen to the album.
Impressions is my first album of new music commissioned by British music library Audio Network. It features emotive orchestral themes and hypnotic piano melodies, built alongside delicate woodwind and lyrical strings—all underpinned by pulsing electronics and powerful percussion.
