"Wirsig takes the soul of sound and uses it as a weapon" *

Welcome to my dark world of music

I'm a composer, producer and songwriter, based in Los Angeles, and have been writing music for over 25 years, with 50 releases to date. Since moving to LA in November 2015 I've had my music placed on numerous TV shows, and wrote the score for several multi award-winning short films. I'm also co-writing with other songwriters, and producing other artists, so please check out my work - welcome to my dark world of music...

Composing

Even if it often is subtle, music is such an integral part of a movie or TV show, as it needs to help tell the story, and support the emotions, moods and atmosphere of a certain scene. As a composer my job is to support the story and characters of your project.

Producing & Remixing

Your song is written, but you need someone to professionally mix and produce it, or write a cool, more unusual additional arrangement around your existing recording? Or would you like to get a genre-bending remix?

Songwriting

I've been writing songs for my own bands and projects for over 25 years now, and I'm also regularly co-writing with others. Hit me up if you need a song or would like to write something memorable together...

Trailerization & Covers

I always enjoy taking a song & bringing it to another level, reimagining it in a different style. Especially with trailerization (making songs more epic or creepy for film trailers). You'd like to get a very different or trailerized version of your song?
