With the eyes of a kingdom upon you, do you have what it takes to boldly traverse your new path?
Today I thought I'd go down memory lane and share one of my absolute favorite tracks with you. It remains the largest track I've ever done. Inspired by Uematsu's "One-Winged Angel", this epic boss battle theme conveys a massive battle, the outcome of which will be the difference between existence and extinction.
It's always fun to start out on a new journey. I've been waiting to share this track for a while, and finally have clearance to do so. It's the title theme for an exciting new RPG called Apprentice Arriving. Enjoy!
Wow...it's been a crazy month for me. I've been involved in a musical production and we opened last night. As much as I love the stage, I'm excited put my focus back into music again! I'm opening up for more projects, so if you need any music drop me a message and we'll see if we can breath some life into your game!
I've recently upgraded my library of instruments, giving me not only a larger selection of world instruments, guitars, and drums to use, but also higher quality orchestral instruments to give my music an even more realistic sound. Now all I need is a couple of new projects to put them to use. If you're in need of some high quality music, give me a shout. I'd love to breath life into your game!
I'm really excited to share this track with everyone! I recently upgraded my instrument library with some higher quality orchestra sounds and a whole slew of world instruments. I wasted no time in making something with all of my new toys =D

How do you take everything you've written in the last year and condense it into one reel? It wasn't easy, but I've narrowed down my favorite tracks since my last demo reel. Each of these stand out in one way or another and each one brings about a different emotion that you can really feel deep down inside. I hope you enjoy!

I played trumpet in high school and college. In that time, I've had the opportunity to play many marches. They're very fun! Now I've had the opportunity to write one in the style of the great Sousa himself. I've got some recent openings, so if you're in need of some tracks for your project just let me know!
Life has a way of leading you down dark and winding twists and turns. The last couple of years have been insane for me. Lots of hard and trying moments along with some fantastic experiences. But all of these things have kept me away from pursuing my music as I once did. Well, that is changing. Bakuda Music is open once more! Have a look at my new and improved Demo Reel (So new and minty fresh)! I'm excited to get involved with the game dev community once again and start creating with all of you!
