I am always working on new music, either writing, arranging, recording, mixing, transcribing, practicing, etc.   I am currently enrolled at ThinkSpace to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Game Music and Audio.  Thus I have been writing a lot of game-style music, much of which you can find on my soundcloud page: www.soundcloud.com/tfbremer.  This is the most current music I have been writing.  Here is my stream:

I scored the short film, Voyage To The Moon, from 1902 for a fun project.  Here's the result:

I also have three albums of original music that I recorded with friends.  All of this music was written and recorded from 2010-2013.

Great Stone Stories is my third album, released September 22, 2013 at the Des Plaines Theatre, in Des Plaines, IL.  The album is a collection of Native American folktales set to my unique brand of progressive pop/rock.  Highly listenable, the album appeals to all ages and a wide variety of tastes.   

Set in a 2-act format, complete with a full orchestral overture and entr'acte, the album is in story style with the Great Stone providing narrations that provide additional explainations of the stories.  The primary band features a variety of instruments seldom heard in combination: flute, violin, viola, trombone, mallet percussion, guitars, bass, drums, and up to three singers on some tracks.  More info (including lyrics) can be found here:  Great Stone Stories

"The Multitude" is my first vocal album.  It is a collection of songs from a variety of varying perspectives, very few of them my own.  I took it as an opportunity to explore some ideas and worldviews that I don't typically hold.

"Altitudes and Catari Ariyasaccani" is my first album.  It's two pieces, based on the philosophy of Ken Wilber and the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism, respectively.
