THE DEAR HUNTER - Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise (2015)

 

Brian collaborated with one of his favorite bands, The Dear Hunter, contributing score preparation and additional orchestrations for their last two records in the Act series.  There was about an hour's worth of orchestral music to prepare for these recordings, which were performed by the Awes​öme Orchestra Collective and recorded at Fantasy Recording Studios in Berkeley, California.

Two Tracks on Act IV which featured Brian's Arrangements

 

While much of the collaboration for these two records was in the realm of score preparation, Casey Crescenzo (bandleader for TDH) was kind enough to offer Brian an opportunity to write his own orchestral accompaniment for two tracks.  You can here Brian's string quartet writing in "Is There Anybody Here?" and "Waves", which currently boasts over 2 million plays on Spotify.

THE DEAR HUNTER - Act V: Hymns with the Devil in Confessional (2016)

 

Again, Brian was responsible for score preparation for all orchestral elements on this record.  This album features three of Brian's arrangements: "Cascade", "The March", and "Blood".
