    This album can be free if you'd like, but I fund all this music out of my own pocket and would really appreciate some compensation. All funds will go directly into buying more gear and making more music.
    So if you like what you hear, show some love! :D

This very short album was composed for an annual weekend film festival on my campus called "Red Eye." Small teams of student filmmakers are given 48 hours to shoot, edit and compose a short film based on a theme. This year's was, "A Day to Remember."

The film that accompanies this soundtrack is called "Leaf Me Alone." It tells the story of a curmudgeonly old gentleman and a new neighbor lady who attempts to be kind to him, despite his attitude. It's a funny, emotional and ultimately happy 5-minute film.

In the same way that the rest of my team had only two days to complete their film, I made all this music in those same 48 hours. It was EXTREME but well worth the time and sleep deprivation.
