João Mutton is a composer, producer and orchestrator from Brazil, award nominated for his orchestral film music.
Hi! I'm João, a music composer, producer, arranger, orchestrator and artist from Brazil. Music has always been my passion. I started very young as an artist and singer of musical theater, and soon learned the piano and started to produce and compose my own music. I then graduated in audiovisual, with emphasis in sound and music for film. I've composed music of many different genres for short films, tv series and videogames in the last 5 years and have recorded and produced music with artists from all over the globe.
I can help with:
Production - bringing life to any recording or idea you have
Songwriting - music, harmony and lyrics.
Recording using top tier sound libraries for almost any instrument.
Editing - tuning, comping and time aligning tracks
I work in an all-digital audio environment using DAW and vsts for sounds. I specialize in orchestral soundtrack music, crossover and pop, but am very versatile and can work in many different genres. I play the piano and can also play as a session musician.
I am looking forward to helping you kickstart your music. Please contact!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
