Recent Projects - Spring 2014 News

neo | Jun, 18 2014 at 3:13 UTC | News

My blog has been a bit quiet as of late, partially due to time constraints and partially due to an error within the system. I didn't quite have enough time to look at it.

During the last few months, I was involved in some more projects with Keith Famie at Visionalist. I worked with Keith back in 2013 on The Embrace of Aging, the male perspective of growing old. It is a fantastic series that I highly recommend checking out.

I was also, somewhat recently, asked to compose another piece for my friend E-A-Ski. While the piece style wasn't new to me, the release medium was; it was officially the first piece I wrote specifically for an audiobook. While I don't have many details on the book's release, I do have the piece to share. Enjoy!

Well, it appears that the winter snowstorms have branched out from solely affecting physical mail and took down my contact forms. I apologize to anyone that came across this issue while visiting my site. The issue has been resolved, and error handling has been beefed up as well.

Trials of The Scenic Variety News

Recently I've come in contact with a group looking to finish up a new horror feature. Being savvy, they are trying on composers by having each write a trial cue to a scene in the film. This is something I've often heard of, but amazingly have never been a part of one til now. It was both exciting and intimidating having no true direction and also knowing the cue had to stand against others.

Until the trials are over, there isn't a ton I can share. For now, here is the score-only version of the demo:

The Brand New NickOlman.com News

After finishing up the music discovery portion of Discovering The Spectrum, it only seemed appropriate to revisit my own site. Using what I had learned the past few months, I was able to easily create a brand new site version, complete with a backend maintenance system and internal blog, the latter of which my site has never included.

Here's to a new site in a new year, hopefully bringing about a lot of new music.
