What I Do.

I am a freelance composer, sound engineer and sound designer working out of Soundz Studios which has two live rooms and a separate vocal booth. I have over 35 years music industry experience, have a BA(Hons) in Music and Technology, and a MFTM Diploma in music to moving image.

Among the services I offer are recording, composition, sound design, audio editing, audio restoration, mixing and mastering.
Audio can be provided as either individual stems(except some specific samples which cannot be delivered in isolation due to copyright terms) or as complete mixes.
I can tailor services to suit your production and budget. I can also create versions of public domain tunes if you are unable to find royalty free versions.
