Reda M

Film score composer

Reda M on SoundBetter

I really don't know what to write here.

I'm specialized in writing/composing music for pictures and scene, supervising and directing the recording. My primary instrument is the piano and that doesn't mean that I put piano in all my compositions.
The palettes that I use are mostly hybrid, except if the script is written for a specific palette of sounds/instruments.
