Brian is without a doubt, the most creative composer and one of the most talented artists I have worked with. His work ethic and passion for music and video games coupled with his attention to detail and fun personality makes Brian a delight to work with!
It was a pleasure working with, Brian. I was blown away multiple times throughout our collaboration. Very thankful for his hard work, dedication, attention to character, and massive creativity. He is a composer you want on your team.
Brian is a true cinematic composer. It wasn’t until we added his voice that The Partitioned really came to life. He makes the collaboration as fun and smooth as possible and is always willing to adjust until your visions align…and even then it’s better than you’d ever hoped.
In the year that Brian attended my class, I had several opportunities to hear his work with small ensembles and with a large professional orchestra. He always acquitted himself well, and furthermore, due to his seriousness and hard work, made steady and consistent progress throughout the year. He is very personable and a model student of both conducting and composition.
Brian has an incredible inner ear, with the ability to quickly diagnose balance, rhythmic, harmonic and intonation issues. But more than that, he understands the dramatic and emotional thrust of the music he writes and performs. He has frequently arranged music for the Arapahoe Philharmonic and Boulder Symphony, and his arrangements are celebrated and acclaimed by musicians and audiences alike.
[Brian’s] work on these arrangements is truly world class. The musicians had a really joyous time recording it and repeatedly made comments about how fun and engaging they were, and things like “this doesn’t even feel at all like a normal session!”
