"Tainted Love" Scoring Complete

Posted on February 5, 2012

Tainted Love, Halogen, Composer

Another score in the can!

This project was really a lot of fun to work on. The dark and depraved subject matter of each episode gave me a lot of room to really stretch out and try out a bunch of new things that I'd never been able to do before in a more "traditional" score.

I'm currently working on the final mix and master of all of the material (roughly 30 minutes worth) for an eventual soundtrack album release in a few weeks. Until then, here is a teaser track from the score that I really love:

"Not My Dreams"

This track is from one of the final episodes I scored. I was very pleased with how everything turned out by combining the brooding synth/aleatoric string bed "theme" that I'd established throughout the series with rich and dramatic orchestral passages topped with a beautiful french horn melody.

Thanks for listening/reading! See you next update!

"Angel of Hope" Soundtrack Release

Posted on January 4, 2012

Angel of Hope, Brian Crutchfield, Composer

I'm very excited to announce the release of the Angel of Hope complete soundtrack! A lot of work went into making this album one of my best productions yet. I would still love to get it recorded with live strings in the future if funding allowed, but I am very pleased with the results.

I may decide to release it for sale over on my Bandcamp music page in the future, but for now please feel free to listen to the whole soundtrack over on my Music Page!

Thanks again to Kent Allen and his whole crew of filmmakers at New Daydream Films / Allen Films for bringing me on to score this beautiful film! It was a blast.

Updates for November 2011

Monthly Update, Site News

Late last month I completely finished mixing and mastering my score for the short film "Angel of Hope", I will be uploading a few select tracks from that soundtrack onto my music page in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep a lookout for those!

After much overthinking and rampant, uncontrolled perfectionism I've finally convinced myself that I am finished tinkering with the final mix of "On Hell's Horizon", and you can now find that track in its updated and completed form on my music page.

If you really like it and would like to use it in your production you can purchase a single-use license of it over on AudioJungle for a very reasonable price.

I am currently super busy working on "Tainted Love" but I've got some really cool stuff planned for "Storm the Gates" - the 2nd track out of 4 from my ongoing album "The Descent into Hell" (On Hell's Horizon was the first track).

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope that you and your family/loved ones had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
