This is an older arrangement I've been sitting on for probably about a year. It's a collaboration between me and Dylan Wiest, a great arranger, keyboardist, and drummer I've had the pleasure of working with, and he contributed the drums/keys on this track as well.
Game: Final Fantasy VII
Source: Tifa's Theme
FYI, this is just a better mastering of the previously posted track, which has been deleted.
This is a remix I have very nearly completed for the upcoming Final Fantasy 9 Album that I simply can't wait any longer to share with people. I wrote this about 2 years ago and then re-did it with better sample libraries earlier this year.
The tin whistle is live. Oh yeah. You heard me right. So is the guitar. But not the bagpipes.
So, part of the Final Fantasy VI Balance and Ruin Kickstarter rewards was to allow someone to pick any video game track, and then a style, and someone from OCR would remix it.
One of your jerks put Crazy Motorcycle Race on there. And then you put A Capella.
Look, I don't know if you were hoping for Smooth McGroove to come to your house and serve you tea or something. But instead, you got me. XPRTNovice. And I am neither Smooth nor Groovy, nor Irish.
Whoever you are, I hate you for this. I think music hates you for this. Nobuo Uematsu personally told me he'd never speak to me again because of this. But, here you go. ENJOY!
This is the final version of this song. I've just been told it's getting picked up to be on Overclocked Remix (http://www.ocremix.org) though I don't know when it will arrive on the homepage. I'll update this track when it does!
This was a track I did for the Super Mario RPG Album - I basically took a bluegrass track and slowed it down by over half, then made it all bluesy. Live instruments (sax, guitars, organ) are all performed by me. Enjoy!

I actually randomly just found this on my computer and thought I'd post it. I'm not in this song at all, however I was the arranger of this piece for In the Stairwell, the United States Air Force Academy's first and only a capella group, which I helped found in 2003. I had four great years with these guys and was happy to continue arranging for them.
This is my remix for Dungeonmans' Tower Theme, available at http://overclockedrecords.com/release/dungeonmans-ost/ . My remix is included in the official album bonus release.
It was a blast to work on this game with Andy Aversa and company. I contributed trumpet to one of the tracks on the OST and was also the featured voice for all of the "Death noises" in the game.
I hope you enjoy this goofy ass remix. Live tenor sax and yes, I am the humble Bon Jovi impersonator.
Here's an original composition that I just sort of stumbled on gradually over the course of the last week or so. It reminds me a little bit of an instrumental Dave Matthews Band song mixed with Bela Fleck with some spacey electronic flair in there. I don't think I've ever written anything quite like this before and it was definitely a fun experience playing with some of the new patches from Omnisphere.
This is a brooding, darker theme I was commissioned for as the theme to a student's demonstration game. The theme of the game is suicide, but it's not so dark as that; it's a beautiful idea of duality, of being saved or being forgotten. I absolutely loved playing with these ideas as I came up with the theme to it.
Please feel free to repost/share on your favorite platform if you enjoyed. I'm posting more music every day!
This track was originally a really goofy tune about a really goofy boss, but when I was reading a bit about Booster's backstory it made me feel kind of sad. He was paranoid and delusional, and relied almost entirely on these little things called Snifits to give him his information.
I kind of feel like he became our president, but that's neither here nor there. Enjoy the music!
