I was recently invited to take over the UNH Music Instagram profile to answer questions about being a full-time composer while living in Brazil. I received a lot of great questions!
If you’re feeling isolated and alone during this time, you’re not alone! New track “Solitude” features piano, strings, and horn. Enjoy!
As we near the end of the decade, I’ve taken some time to look back upon the music I’ve written over the past ten years and realized a few things…
– Whatever improvements I’ve made as a composer are pretty subjective. There’s some music I wrote nearly 10 years ago that I like better than the music I’m writing today!
– The area of growth I’ve improved upon the most has to do with experience & versatility – the ability to adapt to new projects and genres to get things right earlier in the process.
– I still have a TON of unreleased music that I either shelved or didn’t bother releasing. I’ll spend these last 10 days of 2019 going through my old stuff and release a track per day – starting now.
Happy New Year!

O Sonho (The Dream) features music box, piano, strings, flute, and oboe. A through-composed journey built upon a simple idea.
A dramatic, motivating full orchestra track featuring energetic strings and piano, and soaring brass and choir. The beautiful photo was taken by my father Tom Heim. Enjoy 🙂
New track “Today” features piano, orchestra, and ethnic percussion & flute. Sunset image taken last Fall while hiking over Pedra da Mina in Brazil. Enjoy 🙂
A simple, soft, sentimental piece for piano and strings.
An epic, dramatic piece for full orchestra and choir. The culmination of 3 weeks of work from start to finish, “Invictus” was inspired by the famous poem by William Ernest Henley (1875).
