The Last of Us - The Way it Was Orchestra

This is an orchestration of "The Way it Was" from Naughty Dog's new game, "The Last of Us". I love Gustavo Santoalalla's soundtrack and wanted to experiment with a nice simple orchestration of this track. Hopefully I added a bit of my own style while retaining the feel of the original.

Chrono Trigger - The Trial Orchestra

This is an orchestral cover of The Trial from Chrono Trigger. I was just experimenting with strings and things, and although I wasn't completely happy with how it turned out, I ran out of time and thought I'd share.

Duke Nukem 3D - Stalking the Orchestra

My orchestration of Stalker from the (now pooped) NUKEM: Duke 3D Remixes album that was on the retro humble bundle. It's my favourite track from the Duke 3D soundtrack and this is about the 4th time I've orchestrated it!

The Legend of Zelda - WW - Outset Island Orchestra (Video Game Orchestrations Vol 2)

This is an orchestral cover of Outset Island from Wind Waker originally featured on the 2012 Synthetic Orchestra Christmas Calendar. Due to popular demand I've gone back and remastered/remixed these pieces (where possible) to remove the sleigh-bells and Christmassy aspects.

The Legend of Zelda - MM - The Giants' Theme Orchestra

This is an orchestral cover of The Giants' Theme from Zelda Majora's Mask. I'd never paid much attention to the Zelda music until recently. I wish I had gotten into it much earlier as there's so many good pieces of music hidden behind 8bit blips and blops and Nintendo MIDIness. I tried to keep faithful while adding a little of my own style.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Amestris Military March (Re)Orchestra

A quick re-orchestration of Amestris Military March from the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood soundtrack to practice with brass and choir. I was relatively happy with the results, but I could have done better with more than an hour spare.

Banjo-Kazooie - Pause Menu Orchestra

Sometimes bits of music just don't make the final cut on an album. Here's a piece that didn't get onto the track list for my upcoming release. It's the pause music from in-game in Banjo-Kazooie.
