RIFKIN'S FESTIVAL

Woody Allen (RG: Composer)

I wrote this cue for a Woody Allen film to emulate a Citizen Kane-like scene in the movie. The score had to be reminiscent of one of my heroes of film music, Bernard Herrmann, and I enjoyed every minute of its creation, including the spec mockups I made to "apply" for the job. For those mockups, I created two cues that were scored to match the opening two minutes of Citizen Kane (1940s low quality fx and all).

INTENSE CINEMATIC TRAILER MUSIC, VOL. 1

The Soniq Haze (RG: Co-writer)

Five tracks co-written with The Soniq Haze collaborator, Daniel T. Curran on this album of heavy-hitters.

WORKSHOP

The Soniq Haze (RG: Co-writer)

Using only the wood and sinew of organic instruments on hand in the studio, along with some modern production techniques, The Soniq Haze (Rolando Gori, Daniel T. Curran and Greg Tobler) presents WORKSHOP. This characteristically unique album runs the musical gamut from haunting sonorities to pressing rhythms; from meditative moments to nostalgic throwbacks.


Have them playing while you work, meditate or play, and go ahead and try not to get lost in the scenes they evoke.

WHY AM I HERE?

Chloe Williamson (RG: Songwriter)

Chloe: "I recorded this beautiful song in NYC a couple years back. So much has changed since then and we are now releasing this song into a very different world than it was created—but the question 'why am I here?' will forever be one of the most important you can answer for yourself. They even taught it in grad school: stay true to your 'why' and the rest will fall into place. Hoping this song offers you a moment to reflect on what that means for you and gives you hope & strength to achieve all your goals in 2021!"

CARD CUTUPS THEME TUNE

My Monthly Hero (RG: Composer)

Scott Pegg asked me to write a heroic theme for his YouTube channel, and I decided to draw from the best, emulating a few John Williams scores. Fun to create and nice to see it in "action"--no pun pardoning necessary. To hear the​ entire piece, click on the SoundCloud link.
