These are some of my personal creations. I am in charge of all the production, such as transcribing, arrangement, performance, mixing, mastering, filming and video editing. You can find more videos like this on my Youtube channel.
Prog-metal cover of Chrono Trigger's Undersea Palace (Ocean Palace) composed by Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu.
This was incredibly fun to arrange and play. My goal when arranging this song was to make it sound as prog as possible and also be highly influenced by one of my favorite bands of all time, The Contortionist!
Metal cover of "Another Medium" Hotland Theme from the game Undertale composed by Toby Fox.
I contributed this track to Materia's FALLEN album. This is probably one of my best mixes so far! I am very proud with how the video turned out too. I had the pleasure of collaborating with incredibly talented musicians.
Jazz-metal cover of "Battle Against an Unsettling Opponent" theme from the game Earthbound composed by Keiichi Suzuki.
I started to play bass more often and I wanted to give myself a challenging song to learn and get better at this instrument! This room gave me room to go very crazy with sound design and just overall weird textures and riffs. I love Earthbound music.
Prog-metal cover of Sonic 3 and Knuckles "Sandopolis Zone" from Act 1 and Act 2.
This is one of my favorite arrangements that I have done so far. I love the way of how heavy it starts and how emotional it turns towards the end. Also filming at the beach was so much fun!
Metal arrangement of Your Best Nightmare theme from Undertale, originally composed by Toby Fox.
Over 200+ hours was put into the making of this video and it is the most dynamic and craziest arrangement I have ever done. I sampled, tuned, processed and edited over 40 different random household item. I contacted over 20+ people to help me with the acapella section as well as contacting dog owners for a dog choir section that I had in mind. And I even trained a dog to play the keyboard for the video!
Metal arrangement of the Goron City theme from Zelda Ocarina Of Time, originally composed by Koji Kondo.
I started off with diminished sounding riffs and harmonies, then proceeded with an harmonic minor transition going into just minor. After that I proceeded to jump right into major and major melodic to express all the love and feelings I have towards this game and song. I do not have a cuica, but I managed to sample a cup and a straw and sound designed it into that classic sound from the game. I love being able to incorporate some of my sound design skills into my arrangements!
Metal Cover of The Crypt of the Necrodancer - Zone 1-2 - Crypteque by Danny Baranowsky.
I had a lot of fun arranging this song and specially sound designing all of the sound effects. I used my favorite analog synth, the microbrute, and layered a bunch of transitions and melodies that gave my mix another level. I also collected a bunch of bottles and broke them against a wall as I recorded the sound of them breaking and I used it for the crazy brutal sounding outro.

Projects where I had to play more of a musician/arranger role
Prog-metal cover of "The Mob Song" from the movie Beauty and the Beast composed by Alan Menken.
This commission was for Jonathan Young.
I was in charge of completely arrange and record guitars/bass and film my parts.
I loved working on this since the original theme was just asking for a metal cover. It is so intense!
Prog-metal cover of "Friends on the Other Side" from the movie The Princess and the Frog composed by Keith David.
This commission was for Jonathan Young.
I was in charge of completely arrange and record guitars/bass and film my parts. This was probably one of the most challenging arrangements I've done since the original theme is very jazzy with a triplet feel. I love how everything turned out at the end!
Original music that I made for video games, movies, or animations.
The Deku Tree Djenerator is a fun and interactive application inspired by two of the things I love. Metal and videogames.
The popular term "djent" is an onomatopeya that comes from a style of modern metal music and it describes the sound of distorted palm muted guitars with very low pitch and emphasizing the stacatto playing.
In this app you have the opportunity to "djent" over one of my favorite melody lines, the Deku Tree theme from Zelda Ocarina of Time!
The application basically consists on a loop drum playing just cymbals and snare in the background, and different one bar long samples that consist of bass, kick drum, and guitar riffs.
With the keyboard or your mouse you can choose to play between 11 different riffs, choose four different drum loops, and layer up to 5 tracks for orchestration of the melody.
• Download the app by clicking the download button on the link above.
• Double click on the application.
• Set your audio driver by clicking on the icon at the bottom left corner that says "audio."
• Click on the icon saying "restart" at the bottom right corner.
• Choose any drum loop by clicking on any of the boxes under drums.
• Layer any melody by clicking any of the checkmarks right next to the drums.
• You can now djent with your keyboard by pressing the letters that appear on screen!
• If the melodies and the drum loop go out of sync, press the restart button.
