Through his personal works, he has crafted complete works around one or narratives he calls "Concept Albums". These works are either composed as potential alternate scores to existing films as though he had been originally hired to write them or stand-alone simple narratives he conceived.

The most common definitions refer to an expanded approach to a rock album (as a story, play, or opus), or a project that either revolves around a specific theme or a collection of related materials.
