Sandy’s philosophy is simple: being absolutely client-focussed, providing a fantastic creative tailored music score, on time, on budget, and on the nail!
Sandy constantly invests in new sounds and gives a real organic quality to the music he produces, partly through his extensive collection of world instruments. His studio is filled with all kinds of stringed things, from a Syrian Oud, a Turkish Cumbus, to a Columbian Tiple, through to instruments that you can bang, ping or tweak!
His scores are always distinctive with Sandy’s deft touch, whether they are epic orchestral, string quartet, small band acoustic or full on electronica.
Over the years he has scored numerous BAFTA and RTS winning television programmes, International EMMY nominees, and has twice won RTS Best Music Awards.
Oh, ….. and he is also great to work with!
