Hey everybody! This morning, a blog post by me went live on the ReCore game site. I posted the score to the ReCore E3 trailer, and I did a walk-through of the creation of the music, with pictures. Thought you all may like to read it, and take a listen to the music itself.
I thought I would also post some music from LEGO Jurassic World. Check it out out!
Many updates lately! I’m incredibly excited to announce that I am composing the music to the new XBox One exclusive title, “ReCore.” It’s being developed by Microsoft Studios, in conjunction with Mega Man’s Keiji Inafune, as well as Armature Studios, the team behind Metroid Prime. I’ve been working on this for quite some time now, and sitting on it has been tough, because it’s such a great game and I am anxious for everybody to see more!

More exciting news about this game will be coming soon.
Hello everybody, I’ve recently composed the music to LEGO Jurassic World. It was released on June 12th, alongside the film. I composed 45 minutes for the “Jurassic World” portion, utilizing a 112 piece orchestra, performed by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra.
It was written over the course of TWO WEEKS back in February, which was a punishing but really rewarding time frame to work with. My exceptional team outdid themselves yet again. Returning for another score is Susie Benchasil Seiter, who orchestrated and conducted the orchestra in Slovakia. The score itself was mixed by legendary Hollywood engineer Joel Iwataki, and it was an honor to work with him!
We mixed the entire thing in ONE DAY at Sonic Fuel Studios, in El Segundo, CA. This was a really fun project and I look forward to sharing some examples of the score coming up sometime soon.
I also worked on the Jurassic World film, too! I orchestrated two pieces for Michael Giacchino — “It’s a Small Jurassic World” and part of the End Credits suite.
Please check back for more information soon regarding score examples!

Hello everybody, happy Monday! I’d like to introduce you to my epic new project, POKÉMON: SYMPHONIC EVOLUTIONS, a concert tour which begins August 15th in Washington, DC at the Warner Theatre.

Hi everybody – my track entitled “Terra’s Resolve” is featured on the new album “Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin” which released today. The disc itself is produced by Andrew Aversa and features the most popular arrangers on the video game arrangement scene. My track is based on the classic Terra’s Theme, and it features a live 120-piece orchestra performing the arrangement. Thanks in advance to everybody who checks it out!
Hi everybody, I’ve posted some samples of music from Star Trek: The Video Game. Please click on the “Music” tab of my website, or follow this link:
Thank you to everybody for the overwhelming support and goodwill I have received for this score. It is very much appreciated and I’m really glad everybody seems to be enjoying it.
Today marks the release of the new STAR TREK video game, made by Paramount Pictures, Digital Extremes, and published by Namco. I had the pleasure of writing the music to this absolutely fantastic game.
Anybody who knows me knows how important Star Trek is to me, and it has always been a huge part of my life. It’s so cool that a dream of mine since I was a kid has finally come true. The score itself is massive. It’s nearly 120 minutes of awesome action music. I composed the score over the course of three months late last year, and recorded it in December with a giant 120 piece orchestra — and that is NOT including a choir! It was orchestrated and conducted by my wife, Susie Benchasil Seiter, who rocked it, as always. I will soon be putting up samples of the score after it has permeated a bit!
I hope you all enjoy the game, and enjoy the score! Congratulations and THANK YOU to Paramount, Digital Extremes, and Namco! And finally, a giant thank you to STAR TREK composer Michael Giacchino, who gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. Of course, it wouldn’t be an awesome Star Trek score without an awesome giant orchestra, so here are some pictures…
