As a classically trained violinist with vast experience composing in multiple genres, I'm able to create quality compositions with a very individual sound.
I'm offering original composition for film, game and various other projects.
As a film composer I can create themes and cues using the latest film scoring software. I'm able to create synthetic sound tracks, fully orchestrated scores, minimalist and something in between. I'm experienced in horror, thriller, rom-com, drama, period works and world music.
As a game composer I specialise in fantasy.
I compose theme songs for YouTube channels and music for DJs and music producers.

A: That art jobs are low stress
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask alot of questions. The theme of the project, mood, music they think could work well. I sometimes create a Spotify playlist of music I think would work so we can see if we're both on the same page style-wise

Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Cinematic, thriller, horror, fantasy, drama.... occasionally rom-com
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I work quickly and am able to associate sound with moods.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My music can often be edgy, I think that it is in many ways similar to well know composers but I always try to bring something fresh, whether that be in the instrumentation or maybe a very unusual chord thrown in.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Each project is very different, but it always starts with a conversation with the director or game developer. Sometimes for film I will begin developing a theme months in advance, sometimes I'm required to compose as I get the reel. I always sync films through cubase. I often start with chord progressions tempo and instrumentation and build from there. The music should very rarely take over, rather it should compliment the story
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use cubase 9 with multiple high scale plugins which include libraries such as metropolis arc, Nils frahm, Chris Heins strings, synthology ivory 2, massive, damage. I have over 2000 instruments in my library. In addition to this I have a 'live room' where I can record up to 8 musicians at a time.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Hans Zimmer for sure, but also Ramin Djawadi's work on GoT and Westworld. I also love Max Richter's film music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I compose cues and themes for a variety of movies, anything from simple minimalist piano and synth to full scale orchestral epic action tracks.
