Jump Force Now Available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC by Jerome Leroy

I’ve been impatiently waiting these past 6 months for the day I could reveal this one—so it’s kind of an understatement to say that I’m very proud to announce that in the summer of 2018 I got to write music for my first major video game: Jump Force. Now available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, this fighting game from Japanese mega-publishing studio Bandai Namco takes place in a crossover universe featuring characters from various manga series originally featured in Weekly Shōnen Jump, such as Dragonball, One Piece, or Naruto.

It’s a true honor to be a part of this game, as I have been a fan of Jump’s manga franchises for two decades. A few excerpts of the soundtrack have been posted on YouTube; you can take a listen below.

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.
