new release: Lee Rosevere - Fall of the House of Usher

For this Halloween, we're pleased to present a new original score by Lee Rosevere written for the 1928 silent public domain film "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Melville Webber and J.S. Watson Jr, based on the poem by Edgar Allan Poe.

This early and fine example of avant-garde cinema is a visually-rich film, and offers many possibilities and challenges when it comes to the music, especially since it doesn't follow conventional storytelling techniques.

You can watch the film with the music below, or visit the website to download the film and/or the score.

ISS Stacks

Well, blow my lips off!

A little over 24 hours ago, Christoph Malin posted a video made from NASA footage of the earth at night (some of the same footage appears in one of our own videos), featuring Lee's song "Eileen" from the Music for MOBA album.

However, this is not your average time-lapse space video - the images are 'stacked' - and it's been watched at Vimeo more than 160,000 times, not to mention a nifty little article - thanks Christoph!

New release - Jared C. Balogh - Between Equinox

Happy Puppy is pleased to present another collection of humanly-impossible-to-play compositions by the prolific Jared C. Balogh.

These cerebral but very musical songs fits right in with his Rhythms of Life album, previously also released on Happy Puppy, continuing his synclavier-esque modern classical material.

This new album features some of his earliest works; "Break In The Action" is listed in the song notes as being recorded in early June, while "Quick Steppin' Q" goes back nearly three years, played by an imaginary avant-garde jazz duo.

Over 74 minutes of enjoyable and thought-provoking music, and we hope you enjoy it and graciously thank Jared for sharing his music with us. Available now for free download!

For more on Jared's music, visit him at his website, facebook or twitter.
