“The pieces I chose from Venom give a well rounded overview of the score; including the various themes and textural colors we used. The pieces I picked from other scores of mine I thought would be interesting because they are the first cues I wrote for each project; the ones that defined the sound and began my collaboration with the directors on those projects. Music is abstract and often you need a reference point to start discussions. That being said, the pieces I chose from other composers are ones that had a huge influence on me, going all the way back to high school, I believe were very formative to the development of my own aesthetic.”
