In a response to requests to provide full length previews of my music tracks, these are now available in the shop. The previews are of slightly lower quality and interspersed with copyright info every 20 seconds but this is obviously not present on any of the final tracks you buy!
The previews are available for all music tracks including all the royalty free collections (though there might be one or two older tracks still to be updated – should be complete very soon). Hopefully this will help provide you with a better idea if the track is suitable by hearing it in full before you buy.
The first episode of the documentary series I recently scored the music for, ‘Evolution: The Grand Experiment‘ by AVC Films, is being broadcast in the UK this week (Wednesday 2nd December to Monday 7th December) on Sky Channel 586. It’s also playing on many other TV channels across the US, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and other countries.

Thu 3rd Dec @ 10.30am (repeat) Sun 6th Dec @ 9.30pm (repeat)

The music ranges from Thomas Newman-style dark and dramatic cinematic piano pieces to atmospheric and organic evolving soundscapes, cinematic atmospheres, melancholy and emotional piano, nightmarish horror, dark electronica and quirky plucked orchestral pieces. The music makes ideal soundtracks for feature films, documentaries, short films, student films, time lapse videos, thrillers, horror, dramas, art films, science/nature/wildlife/travel/human/crime documentaries, trailers, commercials and more.

My track Scorpio is now available to buy and download from iTunes and eMusic as well as directly from my own mp3 shop (using Paypal). Although my shop is 100% secure as it uses Paypal to process orders, I know many people prefer to buy their music through iTunes so I thought I’d make it available there as an alternative (although I get about an extra 10p if you buy directly from me…)
Following on from my last video promo clip (Vol.1), here’s some atmospheric time-lapse footage to watch while listening to the music in my Royalty-Free Music Collection Vol.2 for film & documentary makers.
This second collection of royalty free music for film and documentary makers contains 45 minutes of dark dramatic piano and atmospheric ambient royalty free music soundtracks plus a license to use the music in an unlimited number of your own films and documentaries.
You can hear full previews of all the tracks and read full details of the music collection in my shop:
Volume 4 of my Royalty Free music series for film and documentary makers is now up in my shop.

For promo purposes only: here’s another ‘rescored’ video, this time for the trailer of John Carpenter’s classic 1982 movie The Thing, rescored with my instrumental music track Outpost 31.
John Carpenter has always been one of my favourite directors (and composers). His soundtracks to films like Halloween and Assault on Precinct 13 are iconic genre soundtracks and inseparable from the films.
Outpost 31 was written as a sort of imaginary alternative soundtrack to The Thing – I always had the epic icy visuals and claustrophobic imagery of the film in the back of my mind when writing this track. You can hear the full preview and buy the track from my mp3 music download shop here:
