Andrew Byars on SoundBetter

I’m an experienced composer, engineer, and producer with a master's in music composition and production. I’ve scored two feature length films and several shorts. I’ve arranged an opera and mixed tracks in a wide variety of genres. I specialize in creating unique colors, textures, and layers, “vibey” production, and electro-acoustic composition.

I have a bachelor’s in classical composition and a master’s in music composition for the screen. I’m a multi-instrumentalist who has studied a wide array of music. I started out writing songs on my guitar and playing in folk bands with my 12-string, trumpet, banjo, and mandolin. I moved on from there to study classical composition where I focused a lot on romantic era music before becoming enthralled with contemporary composers like Anna Clyne, Arvo Part, Esa-Pekka Salonen and musical groups like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Failure, and Aesop Rock to name a few.

I am offering to lend my unique point of view and interests to make your project sound incredible. Whether is a subdued score for a nuanced film, or some heavy, in your face, production to get your track screaming, I want to collaborate with you! My goal for every project is create something new and unique with some emotional heft. If you’re looking for straight and in the box, I am not your guy. If you’re looking for something interesting, different, and textural, let’s get into it.

I really enjoy the collaborative process and seeing what each new client brings to a project. Because of this, I am very generous with revisions. I’m happy to work on a project until everyone involved is satisfied with the result. I look forward to collaborating and creating something new!

Terms Of Service

I allow for three major revisions. Major changes after that are usually the result of lack of communication, so the fee will go up. Minor tweaks and changes tend to fall under the original fee.
