Kubrick On Film

I started doing design and illustration work for the Hollywood Theatre here in Portland. Last weekend they had a "Kubrick On Film" festival that I was able to do the poster for. Looking forward to working with them more in the future!
This was based on the layout of Philip Castle's original A Clockwork Orange poster and type treatment. I tried putting the movies in chronological order but switched The Shining and Barry Lyndon for composition purposes.

Library Music Selections Vol.4 Synthesizers, Keyboards + Electronics

As the title suggests, this volume of library music focuses on analog synthesizers, keyboards, organs, and other electronic curiosities. Some tracks were exclusively created with a synthesizer whiles others used it simply as a texture. I know it's only the tip of the iceberg, but it's a fun expedition into another genre of library music.

Stereoblade (Written In Blood Vol.9)

Volume 9! It didn't take a lot of encouragement to venture deeper within the vaults of horror to dig out some more romantically macabre instrumentals. Stereoblade covers a wide swath of music in both style and era, but each song has a place in the annals of horror soundtracks. Hope you enjoy the final volume of Written In Blood as much as I did putting it together.

note: For the first time I've come across a theme I can't find a credited artist for! The Babysitter is from a made-for-tv-movie of the same name. There was a whole bunch of library source music used for this, those artists are easy to find, but the main title presents a fun internet challenge.
