I have been composing music for film for over a decade. Interweaving experimental soundscapes with melodic memories, patterns of driving rhythm mix with ethereal sound, my bespoke award-winning scores have been used for everything from fast-paced drama, to eye-opening documentaries, from pulsing adverts to atmospheric fashion shorts.
Alongside composing music, I also mix dialogue, create soundscapes, record ADR and master film audio.
Audio Cleaning and Recovery
I also specialise in audio recovery, cleaning and editing. Not everything can be cleaned, but a surprising amount can. If you have audio that needs to be fixed, get in contact and I can see if I can help – all files sent are handled in the strictest confidence.
Location Audio recording
For smaller projects I also record location audio. I own professional equipment that I’m experienced in using in a wide range of filming situations. In my opinion, friendliness, flexibility and reliability are the secret tricks to getting great location audio.
