Well, just like that, and a year has past me by. And what a year!
Our little Emry Josephine Paul was born on September 9th, and life has been wonderfully hectic ever since. I thought it was hard being a struggling composer BEFORE having a baby. And yeah, it's much harder with a baby in tow. Once sleep and recreation become a complete luxury, it's amazing how quickly your perspective on the precariousness of time shifts.
BUT STILL, things have been quite busy for I, your humble, blue-collar composer. Before Christmas, I composed for a wonderful little comedy called Trendi, written and directed by Ben Derrick. It had its premiere at the Harrogate Royal Hall in the UK, which is kind of interesting for me.
Secondly, a demo was released for The Age of Decadence, an upcoming PC roleplaying game for which I have been composing. It's pretty danged awesome, and you really should give it a try, especially if you are into old-school rpgs like Fallout or Balder's Gate. Watch the Trailer.
Finally, if you just happen to find yourself watching When Vacations Attack on the Travel Channel (and we all find ourselves watching reality TV from time-to-time, just admit it) you are bound to hear a bit of my music, as it is used in just about every episode of the season (I wonder if my cello ushers some disaster in some jello, or the sound of the snare beckons forth some burning hair?).
There is another project, not yet released (so I must be somewhat discrete). But I can say that it entails zombies and bluegrass music! At last!
