Abominable and the Invisible City Soundtrack


Both the show (Hulu/Peacock) and the soundtrack are now available to stream! It's been an utter joy to compose music for such a fun and delightful show that's full of heart, comedy, adventure, fantasy, and so much more.


Listen to the soundtrack here.


Screening at DreamWorks

On Oct. 4, DreamWorks hosted a private screening at their on campus Campanile Theater, followed by a panel of the creatives behind the show. It was the first time I got to be in a room in person with a lot of the crew, since almost all of the meetings took place on Zoom.

Afterwards the evening concluded with a live performance of a concert suite that I arranged especially for this evening, featuring Stephanie Yu on solo violin. She's the violinist featured on the soundtrack for Yi's magical playing, and I also shot reference video of her performances that were used as reference for the animators to match Yi's playing. For this performance, I even added some additional virtuoso solo violin parts to the arrangement, and she nails it like the rockstar that she is!
