Lee Aaron - "Demo Album"
Worked with Lee and guitarist John to create all tracks of a full demo album.
I created and performed all bass and drum tracks.
This album was then shopped around, and attracted the attention of a big-name producer for Lee's next album.

Rush - "Live concert sound"
For their "Grace Under Pressure" tour, I worked with Hugh Syme (known for his fantastic album cover work) to produce the music and effects
for rear-projection videos during the concert.
The autograph on the album cover reads: "To Greg: Thanx for the sounds - Geddy Lee".
Here's the on-stage video for "Distant Early Warning"
showing the "Grace Under Pressure" album cover swinging into view.
The sounds were mmostly generated by my Fairlight CMI Series II.
Platinum Blonde - "Concert Drum Solo"
Worked with Chris Steffler, the band's drummer, to create a high-impact concert experience for his drum solos.
This included extra drum tracks that he and I created, that were triggered during his solo.

Sudbury Science North - "Premier 3D Movie Feature"
Provided an orchestrated score and massive sound effects for the opening feature "nature film", which
ran for several years in the custom-built theatre (actually blasted out of the rock).
The 3D movie used specially-developed technology for a stunning visual effect - not silly red/green
glasses, but polarized filters and two huge synchronized 70mm film projectors.
