IF YOU WOULD LIKE A FILM SCORING DEMO FROM JEFF PLEASE EMAIL HIM AT email@example.com.
Jeff has just started scoring his second movie! It's a zombie horror/action/drama film with some good dialogue, some gore and a lot of action. I will definately be putting some more film type music I have done up on this page for more of you to hear very soon-so stay tuned!
Jeff has just finished scoring his first full length movie! It's called Pelican Daughters and runs 80 minutes. Jeff composed 60 min of music for the film and the soundtrack is available to purchase here. The score is mostly piano/strings and acoustic guitar based and is quite different from anything Jeff has done previously. To read more about the film go to http://www.pointblankpictures.com To purchase the soundtrack send $10 Canadian (inside Canada) or $13 U.S funds (outside Canada) to the address at the bottom of this page. Also , Jeff has finished recording the drums for 38 songs!! For Feb/March 2003 Jeff will concentrate on recording bass for the same songs. Guitars/keys will be done throughout the year and lyrics will be written this summer.
I'm getting there! A couple songs for the cd are finished with vocals,while most of the others just need vocals to be recorded. In january, I'll be starting to record a 2 cd concept cd with Sean Brock on drums and Kevin Bailey on bass(yes, even though this cd isn't done yet, I'm recording the next one). Anyway I'll be adding some new songs to this page soon. The classical and world music section of this cd will be put on hold for a while until all the rock/pop stuff is done.
Jeff;s 1998 independent 2.5 hour DOUBLE CD covers a wide range of musical styles.
