music / sound design


Liberia by dkaufman

A collaboration with producer/photographer Matt Powell for a video bio project set in Liberia. We were trying to blend a minimalist African sound with atmospheric Western harmonies and electronic elements.

lovely little piano score

If I do say so myself :).
Bit of a change of pace – very tender piano, soft violin section, a solo violin patch from gypsy, and just a hint of synth. Two primary themes are introduced at the top, then varied and built at the end.

Evolution of Sorrow

Wasn’t able to sneak any accordian into this one like I was planning to, but there is a nice beat-up organ that comes in around 1:00 – soon followed by digital hybrid mandolin tremolo. Tasty.
