Metropole Arrangements

Over the years I have done several arrangements for the Metropole Orkest in the Netherlands. They are right up my alley, a big band with strings! I wish I lived over there as I have a run of shows with them the next 3 weeks and would love to hear them play my arrangements. Last week was a program of James Bond music. I had a lot of fun getting into John Barry's head, it is not jazz, it is not rock, it is not…

I am pleased to announce that on October 25th, 2018, the inaugural DeBreved Orchestration InSensitive workshop/master class/clinic/seminar/corroboree will take place!

Professional experience in the film world is not…

Spider-Man is here

I have spent over a year working on the new Insomniac Spider-Man game for composer John Paesano. The music was produced by my friends at Sony Interactive. My first real orchestrating job was for Sony's SOCOM 3 with composer Jim Dooley many years ago and I can trace nearly every job I have done since to that opportunity.

Ant-man and the Wasp

Ant-man and the Wasp is out! Another unique action score from Christophe Beck for which I served as lead orchestrator and conductor. We recorded the score over a 6 week period at Abbey Road Studio One. While it has become the norm to throw everything at action scores, multiple passes with the orchestra, huge percussion and relentless riffs, Chris' score builds on the unique palette he set up for the first Ant-man movie, with even more pizzicato! While we did record some of the brass and…

$9,000,000 of Old Wood

I was being a smart arse and made a comment to a violinist carrying around her violin, "Lucky that is not a Strad." She quickly answered "It is!" She allowed me to hold it, and as I was sitting there the violinist sitting behind piped up and asked if I would like to hold two Strads! The irony here is that this is not there first time I made such a comment, and not the first time they responded that it was a Strad. A…

Hotel Transylvania 3

I spent a lot of time at Abbey Road this year, conducting both Hotel Transylvania 3 and Ant-man and the Wasp there. HT3 was my 2nd score with Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo fame. The first being last year's Lego Ninjago. We spent a week recording an 80 piece orchestra and a night with a 32 voice choir! The film comes out July 13. The coffee before the storm   Music editor Dominic Certo, Composer Mark…
