Soundtrack Release: "Qi - The Documentary" Available on 9/14 by Jerome Leroy

My score to Qi - The Documentary will be released on September 14th, 2018 on all digital stores and streaming services. 

As a window into an intriguing world, and through in-depth interviews with well-known Qi masters such as Dr. Kam Yuen, Dr. Tatsuo Hirano, and Master Jonathan Tani, the film identifies the various properties of Qi and its effects on human physiology. Most importantly, “Qi” reveals the untapped power within our life force. 

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, 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 other bass drums. Listen to the album now exclusively on my website.

The first few excerpts from the score are now available on my YouTube channel. I will be posting many more in the next few weeks—remember to subscribe to the channel to be reminded when the new excerpts are up!

Gina Luciani performs Dizi (Chinese Flute) on "Yuanfen" by Jerome Leroy

Watch below Gina Luciani perform my score to the short animated film Yuanfen on Dizi (Chinese bamboo flute) and concert flute.

"Yuafen" is a student short directed by Amanda Sparso from the School of Visual Arts. I composed and recorded the score earlier this year, and I'm hoping to release it as a single sometime this Fall. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Gina's beautiful performance.

Complog Update: Two new articles published by Jerome Leroy

I recently published two tech-related articles on my Medium complog:

  1. "A Composer’s Mobile Rig," describing my mobile rig and giving tips & tricks on how to build your own.
  2. "My Writing Gear," a non-exhaustive list of the hardware and software I use to write music, along with specific patch layouts and pictures.

I hope you enjoy reading these! Remember to let me know your thoughts and reactions in the complog's comments.

Introducing my Medium "Complog" by Jerome Leroy

I very recently started a blog on Medium. My goal is to use it to post in-depth articles about my work and processes—basically, how I write music for media. Some articles will be focused strictly on the musical side of things, others will be focused strictly on the technical side of things, and many articles will fall somewhere in between.
