Abbey Road Studios, July 2021

Jonathan recently spent 17 days at the legendary ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS in London, England mixing his latest original score for Games Workshop. Utilizing Abbey Road’s immense collection of classic analog gear, Jonathan has crafted a cutting edge musical score that simultaneously lives as a futuristic score but delivered with the retro sonic production sensibility of an album that could have been released in the late 70s or early 80s. A massive undertaking, this new score featured vocalists, guitars, dozens of exotic percussion instruments and live string recordings that were tracked in Los Angeles at THE VILLAGE, Fleetwood Mac’s studio facility. We’re excited to reveal more in the coming months as the project works its way through post production to its release date! More to come…. soon.

Sequential Synthesizers Featured Artist

Happy to Announce that I am a Featured endorsed Artist with SEQUENTIAL synthesizers.

TELEVISION ACADEMY

It’s official- I’m now a member of the Television Academy.    When I first moved to Los Angeles years ago, I didn’t know what to expect, or if I’d even work when I arrived.  I’m grateful for the career I have and it’s a genuine honor to have been accepted, a real milestone in my musical journey in this business.   More to come, and I look forward to working with and participating in the academy for years to come.

KILLING KHAN- Boston premiere

I had the pleasure of scoring JR Hepburn’s action short KILLING KHAN earlier this year.  The film is now complete and just had it’s premiere screening in Boston this evening.   Congrats to JR and Andrew Adler on their film and all of its success.  It heads out to festivals, as well as private screenings/meetings with Hollywood execs next for a possible feature film incarnation of the story. Thank you for the amazing opportunity to score your film, looking forward to working with you again in 2017!      

YOU HAVE ARRIVED- Los Angeles premiere screening

I had the pleasure of scoring YOU HAVE ARRIVED earlier this year with director Justin Phillip.  YOU HAVE ARRIVED is a distopic look into people’s over-reliance in technology, and how it can be used against them.  Justin wrote and directed this short film, as well as plays the unnerving hotel owner with dark thoughts in mind for the travelers.    The film just had it’s LA premiere screening and will be heading out to festivals across the US.    A feature film version is in development for 2017.
