​​​Video Game Soundtracks

​I have had the incredible opportunity to create all of the music for Titan Saga; a role playing game being developed by Kneeshaw Developments LLC. Along with Titan Saga, I have been making the complete soundtrack to Quest? Quest! also a role playing game under the development of Matt Bradshaw. If you are interested in the Quest? Quest! you can check out the kick starter currently available. Or you can check out the Titan Saga World Map theme on Soundcloud!

About Me

I studied piano under Dr. Botkin, and composed many pieces under the guidance of Dr. Schmitz and Dr. Schwabe at the University of Northern Iowa. I have composed many classical pieces for varying ensemble sizes including a full band piece that was read by the Symphonic band of UNI. 


Software wise I have worked on Cubase, Ableton, Sibelius, Reaper, and Audacity. These different platforms assist me in composing for a variety of different audiences and their unique requests.

Hartman's Woodland Suite 

In the past, I had the honor of being the Hartman Reserve's Artist in Residence. I was tasked with creating a piano suite inspired by Hartman's beautiful nature trails. I recorded myself walking the trails and custom wrote a piano part that facilitated the audio experience to the nature sounds. Further below is the 6th and final movement of the suite. From that opportunity, I was featured by the Iowa Public Radio as the September Iowa Arts Showcase




Experience

Most recent projects

I  began playing piano at the age of four and quickly fell in love with the instrument. By eight I began lessons. In high school I published my first CD which had a favorable response and led me to earn a career in piano and composition. I decided to become a proud panther and attended the University of Northern Iowa where I earned a degree in Bachelors of Arts in General Music Studies with an emphasis in Music Composition and Theory. 


I currently reside in Cedar Falls with my beautiful wife. We are pursuing music careers individually and together under the name Hudson Road. Being a man of many hats, some of my dreams are to create music for video games, rock bands, men's choir and orchestras. Most importantly I desire to provide quality entertainment to those who seek it.

I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors of Arts in a General Music Studies with emphasis in Music Composition & Theory. I have spent the last 7 years performing in numerous weddings, funerals and parties as a solo entertainer. I have also had the opportunity to be a pianist in a band and I am currently a member of Hudson Road, a duo that can be found playing local gigs. 


Apart from the live music, I have experience with composing for ensembles crossing a range of genres and styles. Such as a delicate string trio, a powerful eight person percussion ensemble, or the entrancing four mallet solo marimba piece.
