Time Travel without a Delorean


aka...Exploring local archives with digital tools - a live lecture presentation held on Tuesday, October 20th at SUNY Plattsburgh (Alumni Rm).
Time travel, as depicted in the “Back to the Future” movie series, still resides comfortably in the realm of science fiction. However, visiting the past through local archives has become more exciting when using today’s digital technologies. Scanning techniques can reveal more details in photographs than have been accessible through prior magnification and enlargement processes. And digital audio tools provide both preservation and restoration capabilities for sound archives—allowing content to be clearer and more discernible to listeners. As well, current media production technology (and the Internet) can move images and sounds from the forgotten past to the brink of the public’s awareness.

Hard Spell Justin Gustainis Book Excerpt

Hard Spell Chapter Excerpt available on Youtube

In 2013, I was fortunate to work again with voice talent, Michael Ciulla to produce a chapter excerpt from Justin Gustainis' urban fantasy, "Hard Spell." It's always tricky producing an audio book excerpt. You can't fill it with music and sound effects because that would detract from the narrative. It has to be more subtle. What happens in this chapter excerpt? You get to tag along as occult detective Stan Markowski finds out if his new partner can handle skirmishes with demonic cults in Scranton, PA. (Stan Markowski is a Detective Sergeant on the Scranton PD's Supernatural Crimes Investigation Unit.). Justin brought me on board to compose the soundtrack and find creative ways to craft demonic voices.

Hard Spell Justin Gustainis Book Trailer

Working with esteemed horror-fiction writer, Justin Gustainis, I was brought on board to produce the audio track for the book trailer for Hard Spell, that was produced by Terry Bear Productions in 2011. I had a lot of fun crafting the sound effects and composing the music track. And of course, it's nice to be associated with professional voice talent, Michael Ciulla. The basic story behind this urban fantasy: an occult detective in Scranton, Pennsylvania investigates crimes involving vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, and ghouls.
Yeah, it's a fun genre to work with...

Horror-fiction writer, Justin Gustainis brought me in to assist in the launch of his new political thriller, Sympathy for the Devil in 2011. Besides the sound track, I recorded the audio and helped to assemble the video elements. The voice-over work was done by good friend and voice talent, Damien Quinlan. In this hot new urban fantasy novel, a Senator is possessed by a demon who plans to bring on the Apocalypse. Quincey Morris, great-grandson of the man who helped kill Dracula, and white witch Libby Chastain, fight a desperate battle to save all of humanity from Satin.

The Hades Project Justin Gustainis Book Trailer

The Hades Project Book Trailer available on Youtube

In my first collaboration with horror-fiction writer, Justin Gustainis, I produced a flash-based promotional trailer for his 2007 book release of The Hades Project. Since the novel is about demonic horror, we decided to work with still graphics and keep it to a music-only palette. The soundtrack was composed on an Ensoniq TS-10 synthesizer/workstation and edited with Adobe Audition 1.5. The flash-based animation was later converted to video (for YouTube), and was originally co-launched with an accompanying flash website which can be viewed at
