Edward Helsing

Film Composer / Rock Artist

Edward Helsing on SoundBetter

I'm a composer looking towards an interesting project. My music is expressive, vivid, romantic & dramatic. I'm working on film scores as well as gothic rock.

Besides music I have interest on Medieval and Ancient times. What comes to literature or poetry Dante Alighieri, Lord Byron, Catullus are some of what I like. I have bachelor's degree in Theology.

The most memorable soundtracks for me propably are the ones of Hobbit Trilogy, Gladiator & The House of Flying Daggers. Also a fan of rock bands such as Black Sabbath and Type O Negative.

I'm based in Newcastle Upon Tyne UK, however spending some time in London & also travelling while working on exciting ideas.

Feel free to contact me and I'm pleased to talk more.
