    I am a classically trained but soundtrack-oriented composer. I have scored an entire play as well as several independent video games. I have worked with Rockstar Games, Discovery Channel, and several high-end film production companies (http://smoothmotionfilms.com/Smooth_Motion_Films_USA/music_usa.htm) on video game trailers and films. I am currently working on a documentary (www.thelaughingplanet.com) as well as a short film (www.ronansescape.com).
    I can create any type of music imaginable--if you need anything from a sweeping, LOTR-type soundscape; to a middle-eastern jam session featuring an incredible Syrian vocalist; to the darkest of death metal with a face-melting guitar solo; to a pounding electronic beat, my music can be high-octane, soothing, depressing, inspiring, and absolutely everything in between.

    Some selected samples:

    The Fall: http://www.garageband.com/song?|pe1|S8LTM0LdsaSlY1i1Y28

    Worldwide: http://www.garageband.com/song?|pe1|S8LTM0LdsaSjYli3amg

    Please feel free to listen to and/or download any of these songs that you'd like. If you're interested in using my music, or in having me write some original music for your production, please email me at the address listed above and we can hammer out the details.

    Love the top two tracks on your Garageband profile (Shantih and The Fall). Kickass!

    I must say, I never used to pay much attention to this section of the forum, but I've since got into the habit of playing people's demo tracks while I browse other thread and I'm glad I did. There's some serious talent kicking around if you browse a little.

    Indie developers take note: When it comes to custom music, you are spoilt for choice! Considering how much better your game will be with its own unique music, it's worth the price to hire a composer. (That goes for many of the composers in this forum, not just this thread.)

    You're indies, not cheapskates. Invest a little. :)

    Thanks Chris! I'm glad you like the music!
    Most of what I have on there is for free download (including those two), so if you find any song that you'd just like to listen to, feel free to download it and put it in your iTunes.
    For music you wish to use in a production, however, that's when you need to contact me ;-)
