About me

Music producer, composer, musican, sound designer, audio engineer, and techhead.
Am a cellist and pianist studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Have written music for Adidas, EU Commission, Vice, German Tourism Board, for Cirque du Soleil and many others. I also produced and composed music for a Nintendo game on the NDS, using closed-source proprietary technology.

As a professional musician I played with Kylie Minogue's for her New Years Eve concert (97) and also performed privately for Rupert Murdoch on his private property with my String Quartet.

My classical training has not kept me away from the fashion side of music either, having done a stint as a lifestyle reporter at all the major fashion shows for 3 seasons. New York, London, Milan and Paris. Often the latest underground vision for sound is broken on the catwalk.

On my website I also have a music library of pre-made tracks available for licensing.

Regards,
Benedict
