Audio / Video / Music  -  Production and Technical Services
40 years of studio, stage and location audio production, for music, film, TV and broadcast news.
During the pandemic, I created a music video for this song ("When 'd Sun Go Down") from my 2012 CD.
This was for my many friends and family that were forced to stay at home,
and were not lucky to have the beautiful sunsets that we have in Clearwater, FL
I composed, arranged, performed or programmed all parts using synthesizers (except for the flute which I played).
I engineered, mixed the music, and produced, directed, edited all pictures (taken by me, my friends, and some licensed),
and video (shot at Clearwater Beach, FL).  Click the link below to watch.
