It was a rainy day with nothing to score, so I decided to practice writing some music to Kubi's great stock footage. The result is something I was pleasantly surprised with. When 1+1=3, you have magic.
p.s. I feel like this is just begging for some kind of monologue or poetry to be added to it! Someone make it happen!
A short film I made for no money.
All music and SFX are public domain.
Consider this a no-budget tribute to KIDS IN THE HALL, LOONEY TUNES, JOHN WATERS and EDGAR WRIGHT.
Kingsley, a man with a dark romantic history, and Stefan, a young boy with dreams of friendship, are forced into a scuffle over sentiments attached to a pastry.
This was something I recorded a while ago for the Favorite Things collab but I never got aroung to uploading it. It's my mom and dad's passport photos from when they were in their 20s. I just love them. Use this as you wish! :o)
10 sec scene from a Fictional Film.
Probably need voice over? Kind of muffled voice?
- The day I learned of Death/The Night I learned ...
00:00-00:49 There's a boy walking in the rain with an umbrella through a field. With each step he takes he visibly ages until he is a full grown man.
00:49-01:19He stumbles on a laying tiger. Sensing something isn't right, he walks closer. He then notices the blood stained grass around the tiger slowly being washed by the rain. Worried, he drops his umbrella and runs to the injured tiger, placing his hands on the tigers slowly rising ribs.
01:19-02:10 The tigers eye jolts open, he turns and looks at the man, who seems to have visibly aged to his child self again as he smiles down at the tiger. The tiger sits up and the two play together in the tall grass. The boy strips off all his clothes and acts as the tiger does.
02:10-02:44 The Tiger comes in close and speaks to the boy, "I am sorry, but I have to go. Thank you. Turn away now, face towards your home." The tiger turns to leave, the boy ignores the Tigers directions and instead watches as the tiger descends down a dirt path.
02:44-03:41 The tiger takes one last breath, turns towards the boy once more, and collapses. The boy picks up his umbrella, puts his clothes on, and walks away as a full grown man again.

I downloaded this a year or two ago for a separate project..don't remember where I got it so lyrictician suggested I upload the full mp3
- Maple Leaf Rag (fragment)
hitRECord needs more ragtime!
This is just the first "movement" of Scott Joplin's famous Maple Leaf Rag. If I ever get around to perfecting the other movements I'll play the whole thing. It's actually quite a workout and challenging for someone with short fingers like me.
This recording has no effects applied, but one could imagine applying effects to make it sound like and old gramophone record or something similar.
- Sinister Clocks
Originally called "Coo Coo Clocks" but the new name is much better in my opinion! Also sounds better with bass.
HD version of Next, Space.
My ma reckons my video skillz are fully sick (because well, she has to) but I know there are some amazing kids out there that can do much better! REmix us!
