Tour de Fat 2010!

August 30, 2010

my buddy noah tabakin and i were hired on this year as music directors for New Belgium Brewing Company’s Tour de Fat this summer, and it’s been a great time!

so far we’ve played:
Chicago,
Milwaukee
Minneapolis
Seattle
Portland
Boise

and our next stop is the Brewery’s home-base, Fort Collins, CO!

we’re working with a terrific band called The Dovekins from Denver, and among the tunes we’re doing, i’ve written a couple! this is a blog about making things, so here we go!

1.  something triumphant, but i won’t tell you what it’s for, that’d spoil the suprise

2.  game show theme! (this is played live, but here’s a quick midi version)

3.  theme for the winner of the show!  by myself and mr. tabakin.  (also demo version)

4.  crash!  (foley)

5.  industrial smelting sound design

and these four little guys, that we didn’t end up using in the final version of the show:

those crazy fast rabbits!

father time theme

romance theme

this just in!

it’s NEWS MUSIC!

this was a track i wrote for a friend/client recently. i thought i’d post it on the BLOG because BLOGS ARE FOR SHARING!

i had a lot of fun with this one, trying to harness some of the tv broadcast news-cheese of years ago.

get ready!

hear it is:
