Whether through the alignment of all the planets or simply a partnership with arranger-composer Josh Barron (Kingdom Hearts Album), The ETHEReal String Orchestra presents us with a very lively and pleasurable album. They — with the addition of three guest pianists — take Barron's impressive arrangements and breathe life into them. Whether you're one to enjoy the sweet, mysterious atmosphere of "Eruyt Village" or one for something more vivacious like "Trisection," there are various arrangements that will make you thirst for more!”

[The ETHEReal String Project] is an absolutely astounding work of art and Josh has given each arrangement a personal touch to ensure they are successfully transformed.”

ETHEReal String Project RE-RELEASED on Bandcamp 

The ETHEReal String Project is now available for purchase on Bandcamp! I received many requests to have this available since Loudr closed their storefront, so Materia Collective graciously accepted to port over the album. Thank you for all those who have bought this album and are continuing to listen to it. I am working on a sequel album now and my plan is to have it released this year. Stay tuned!

NEW RELEASE: Stone Tower Temple from Majora's Mask 

Hey everyone! I am very honored to have collaborated with The Travelers VGM once more for a new arrangement! I chose Stone Tower Temple to have an Arabian style. I haven't done this style much and I wanted to delve further into it. I am quite pleased with the overall result and I hope that you will give it a shot, along with the rest of the album.

WORLD PREMIERE and Future Works 

This past month I had the pleasure of working with the Iowa City Community String Orchestra to premiere Op. II The Endless Sea for String Orchestra. I am currently working on a studio recording of this for an upcoming project along with some more arrangements from games. The collection will be a set of impressionist music. I will have more of an official announcement soon, but I can confirm that I am working with the ETHEReal String Orchestra for this. I am so very excited to reveal everything, alas I must wait until all is done.
