Gary is a composer and guitarist based in Melbourne Australia with a capacity to cover a number of musical genres.
His main focus is adding meaning and emotion to the vision of the project under consideration.
Whether it is a highly processed acoustic guitar spinning out into a wide scape cinematic presence, a hybrid orchestral piece, a straight-ahead blues/ jazz piece, or a singer-songwriter item, the major consideration is always the movement and emotion of the vision on screen and how that can be supported and enhanced with a particular musical texture.
Gary has a production model that works efficiently to produce timely and high-quality sonic outcomes.
I would have to say, that for me, the Beatles are the gold standard in regard to writing and studio-based creativity. Having said that, I am also a massive fan of Massive Attack, Steven Wilson, Jeff Beck, Jose Gonzales, Imogen Heap, John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra, Eric Johnson, Allan Holdsworth, Tommy Bolin, Guthrie Govan, Meshell Ndegeocello, Marcus Miller, Air, Brian Transeau (BT), Alison Goldfrapp, Miles Davis and Johnny Cash ……….too many more people to list here. Producer-wise, Rick Rubin is right in there.
Currently enjoying a productive musical collaboration with fellow Melbourne-based musician Justin Humphries (drummer /bassist/ producer) from Phoenix Sound Studios. I’m also lucky to have access to another local musician in Suzanne Kinsella, who specialises in composition, vocals, and bass.
