Composer for TV/Film

Biography

Music Supervisors have a tough job.

They often juggle the demands of a client while discovering the unrealistic expectations of composers/musicians/bands. A good tv/film composer understands the difference between having one’s “work” in a commercial – and doing “commercial work.” A unique level of communication is important because a client's request can be vague and frustrating.

I’m an experienced composer. Melodic, fast, and flexible in several genres. My typical approach to a project is to do a couple of different compositions around a simple melody (listen to “Theme Variation” in the audio section).

I live in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Discography

My experience includes working under music supervision for a major American advertising firm.

Due to the file limits on this website, I can only upload 3 audio tracks. Each track is a series of short clips strung together. Please email me if you would like more examples of my work, including incidental and sound-design tracks.

I composed a score for a feature-length horror film (never released), 10 short films, several jingles, incidental/sound-design, and a few radio IDs. All of this work has been non-union.

I’ve released a couple of online albums as an electronica artist under the names Electro Sanctum and Neo Void. Tracks from both have been spun in clubs worldwide. Over the years, I’ve played in jazz, funk, gospel, blues, and goth/industrial bands, including studio work.

My primary instrument is keyboard, but I also play drums and guitar.
