The above is my showreel. It shows a variety of styles: Kwela (a placement in the movie Winnie), dramatic, comedic, suspense, action, tragic, and quirky (these cues are just me having fun). For a Dolby 5.1 surround mix, I would be glad to send a DVD.

I am a composer in South Africa, and I am very passionate about film music. My strongest influence is probably Thomas Newman(American Beauty). My approach is orchestral blended with many organic instrumental textures from all over the world, played on real instruments mostly by myself and featuring talented vocalists. I have studied Orchestration for Film and TV at Berklee Online, and have had extensive experience recording and mixing music of all kinds in stereo and surround.

Please contact me about your project!
