Lost – The Constant – live stream

Scored for: percussion instruments (vibraphone, marimba, glockenspiel, drums, cymbals, etc.)

This live concert performance of my rescore of an episode of the TV series Lost. This concert was broadcast to the internet on 2 August 2016 from VCFA.

The story is that a airplane passenger stranded by a crash on a desert island in 2004 is being rescued, but after passing through a thunderstorm on the way to the rescue ship, he begins to experience vivid flashbacks of 1996 when he was a soldier in boot camp. He becomes disoriented and doesn’t know whether it is 1996 or 2004. He is counseled by a physicist to pick a “constant”, someone or something existing in both timeframes that he really cares about, to resolve his dilemma.

Another version of this video appears here.

This rescore is for percussion instruments only, featuring marimba, vibraphone, and glockenspiel.

At the Movies


Scored for: percussion trio (marimba, xylophone, and glockenspiel) and double bass

One of my first film-scoring projects was an experimental, minimalist score for the 1916 Charlie Chaplin film The Vagabond. I have extracted three scenes from the film, and scored them for percussion and double bass, creating the suite At the Movies. Enjoy!
