Russell Brower and Derek Duke from the WoW team, Michael McCann, Amon Tobin, some bands like Summoning, Septic Flesh, and Ulver, good old Shostakovich… not sure what others show in my music. Most of the darker tones come from the metal I listen to, bands like Slumber, Insomnium, and Coldworld. Summoning was probably the biggest influence on guitar treatment; Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame has a lot of my favorites from them. Don’t know if Yoko Kanno, Yoko Shimomura, and Michiru Yamane show much, but I admire them. The ambient and distant nature of a lot of my older works was partially due to limitations in sounds available and learning, though a lot was influenced by those mentioned above. Nowadays I’ve been focusing on pushing into more active pieces while still retaining the feel of my work so that I’ve got wider variety and capabilities.

Just kind of added an ending and some mixing stuff to the wip from yesterday, put it on soundcloud for download. Not sure why this style came to mind for her. Something about acting all aloof and challenging Almond to fights.
First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who’s commissioned music from me over the past year. It’s been a great help! Especially now that I am in a very shaky financial situation, every single one makes a world of difference.
Secondly, I’d like to remind anyone who might be interested that I am…
Just wanted to post something, felt like this would be a nice, more techno-orchestral thing to put up. Not really a new thing.

A WIP. Getting back into orchestral scores/composing, nostalgic for WoW (and its music).
