The commission was for a hybrid/orchestral score to accompany a dance routine filmed in public in Singapore. The edit was locked, so the music had to sync after the fact.
In Galaxy Bikes, the music and sampled bicycle sounds combine to convey the meandering life of a bike, as it makes its way into the hands of a caring vintage bike restorer, who then sends it back out into the big unknown.

TAKE ME TO DINNER
In the score for Take Me To Dinner, the lead character Edward is heard as a drone in the main theme, increasingly surrounded and eventually engulfed by the din of his desperate decisions. The score anchors around the juxtaposition of acoustic instruments and lo-fi electronica, using slow arpeggios and select plug-in patches to create a chilling and frantic mood.
