The Eclectic Ensemble - LumiNite

LumiNite has to be one of the coolest projects I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Come to think of it, most everything I have done with The Eclectic Ensemble has been ridiculously awesome in every sense of those words. From the solar-powered park jams of Music of the Sun (MOTS) to the bicycle powered jams at Indeed Brewing Co (literally powered by the audience who rides stationary bikes connected to generators to power our performance).

In LumiNite, I got to ride in the back of a bike trailer, improvise guitar loops, and control a light show while riding up and down the Minneapolis Greenway. Yeah...I know...Awesome :-D

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth 30 pictures per second. This video is a summary of 4 performances over the month of October in 2015.

Global Game Jam 2015 - VRidDL, Dark Moon Gauntlet, The Bomb From Planet X, & Minneapolis Mayhem

This was my first game jam as well as my first experience writing music for video games. I had so much fun collaborating with so many amazing creative people. I can't wait for next year!

I ended up working on 4 different games. Some of which are even playable! LOL ;)


The first of which is a horror game for VR called VRidDL. You are forced to navigate a creepy hotel and solve riddles in order to find your escape. Here is a sample of the main background ambiance with some of the hits and stingers when crazy things jump out at you.

Play at:

Dark Moon Gauntlet

This next game, Dark Moon Gauntlet, is a platformer for PC. It has a couple cues/loops; one for when you are exploring and one after the castle start to cave in on you. We decided on a chippy meets medieval meets orchestral sound. I think we got there.

Play at:

The Bomb From Planet X

This is a 3D game for PC. It is styled like a 1950s horror film in which you control an alien bomb that rolls around a desert town. Your goal is to guide the bomb out of the town before the timer counts down and blows the unsuspecting town to smithereens.

Play at:

Minneapolis Mayhem

This is a Rampage style game where you act as Babe the Blue Ox and beat up on the city of Minneapolis. Good times :) ...AND! You can actually play this game here: Minneapolis Mayhem!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my music. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and share these videos with anybody who might like them.

Also, please hit me up on my website if you'd like me to write music for your video game or film (or any other project). I'd love to hear from you!
