Services: Music Composer

Creating custom original music for visual media!

“But I can just use that stock music library from the interwebs…”

Sure, there’s plenty of situations where this works great (i.e., Reality Television). However, if you long for the specific such as “I’m looking for the colour blue, on a Saturday, 2006, March” while also conveying emotional support, this is where custom music is a perfect match for your production.

Music that is precisely tailored for the moment compared to stock music “needle-drop” compromise.

“You’re more expensive than my friend’s kid who uses Garageband”


Services: Synthesizer Sound Design

Sometimes called “Additional Programming”,  these are bespoke sounds custom created for use within a Composer’s score instead of common “off the shelf” sounds that everyone has access to.

The Monster Modular Synth!!

The individual modules are sourced from all over the world – ranging from established synthesizer companies to one-man operations that design and build each by hand.   The sonic possibilities of the system are endless, such as a building something from a huge trunk of Lego,  and offers a bespoke sonic edge to a composer’s sound.

Services: Technical Wingman

A Technical Wingman is basically “Scotty” in Star Trek.   Tasked with keeping the ship operational when the pressure is on!  Depending on the scope of the production,  it could be a canoe or huge oil tanker…  but hopefully never the Titanic (oh that’s so lame…wah wah!)

How I Became Invisible


  • Theatre

Clunk Puppet Lab, in association with The Old Trout Puppet Workshop, presents “How I Became Invisible” – a surreal puppet performance that unearths life, death, and the memories that linger in-between.

What happens when you disappear from everything you hold dear, the people you remember, the place you call home? What if this happens and you haven’t hit puberty?

Saija, a youthful mind, grapples with deterioration of old age, imprisoned in a world of demented seniors, where grace becomes fear, and beauty is beleaguered by the desperation that comes with forgetting everything life is lived for.

How I Became Invisible is a hauntingly poetic, visual ballet that promises to stretch your heart with all that is beautiful in life.

Sept 22nd – Oct 2nd 2011 at the Vertigo Studio Theatre,  Calgary.
