MUSIC

I used to compose regularly and for the joy of it. Nowadays most of my music is created out of demand for sync projects, drama, corporate and theatre. I still very much enjoy composing, just find that a deadline and a budget gives me the necessary focus. I very much enjoy exploring new directions and styles of music. Clients also regularly ask me to replicate certain songs for sync use as they wouldn’t be able to afford the royalties of a famous song otherwise yet still desire the feel and recognition of a particular piece of music for their video. I am comfortable with both, a specific brief or a vague theme. Each has its appeal to work with. Please get in touch if you would like an original composition to go with your movie or need something similar to an unattainable song.

I am also very much open to collaboration. As you can see from my SoundCloud I have worked with many artists to date to create a versatile mix of music and sound.

Some of my music can be found on BandCamp for sale.

I have been making music and sounds from an early age starting with Dance Ejay 2 when I was only 12 crafting electronic music, then discovering SoundForge to design sounds to use in my compositions. After progressing through a variety of other software including FruityLoops I went to University to study Creative Music Technology where I learned to use Logic. Through studio experience I got acquainted to Protools which I then used for the next few years before I finally discovered my personal holy grail of a DAW: Reaper! Through my job as a Soundrecordist I get to record a lot of material. I enjoy sending that through SoundForge to come up with large selections of the most varied sound samples to then stitch them together in Reaper to hopefully sound like a piece of music in the end:) A Lengthy process however, the approach guarantees a unique outcome every time.
