I’m taking a Masterclass with Hans Zimmer on film scoring. Here was the first assignment to add a question and answer motif score to a favorite scene. I picked this scene because it was one that had no original score on it.
You know its really unfortunate that some web hosting services rope you in with a really low rate – and then sock it to you with a gut punch when it comes time to renew. And did you know that many of the big hosting services are owned by the same parent company? So if you threaten to leave – they dont care…
I have rehosted TODDLmusic.com again with ehosts and hope to stay around.
My interpretation and cover of this song is that this is a tribute to that special someone in your life. It is an admission that life would be so different without him. What would I do without her? I’d flounder. This is not discounting God’s grace and provision. Rather it says that apart from God’s grace, life would be empty without you! You are that special. Dedicated to Debbie.

Todd’s latest pop song cover is Titanium by David Guetta originally featuring Sia. This includes an introduction written by Todd entitled Peace Before the Storm.
All sounds generated from Yamaha Motif XF6 except for drums via EZDrummer and Strum Guitar from Spicey Guitar Plugin.
Instrumental cover of Lights by Ellie Goulding. Hope you enjoy. Special callout to Syntorial for the keyboard programming technique for the background echo part…
Todd’s new cover song from Jennifer Lopez – On The Floor has one catchy hook – and its a fun song to play. Again this is played with sounds from the Yamaha Motif XF6 with drums by EZDrummer.
PSY may be a one hit wonder – but it was quite a wonder with the most watched youtube download. Here is my offering into the Gangnam flurry – TODDNAM Style – played instrumentally. The video contains winamp milkdrop visualizations and the music was done solely on a Yamaha Motif XF6 with drums by EZDrummer.
I’m taking a break from my 3rd CD (Hymns of the Reformation) to work on some covers for popular pop songs from 2011-2012. My hope is to eventually release an online CD with all of the covers available on iTunes and CDBaby. The first song I worked on was Dust in the Wind by Kansas – I hope you enjoy. The first one includes lyrics for those not too familiar with the original. The second has no lyrics and you can sing along in your head to the video.
