Co-Founder
Tonosfera Music

Sessions:


I’m a composer/producer turned publisher with extensive experience in various aspects of Production Music, having started out in this field writing for Liquid Cinema and co-producing alongside Jeff Rona and David Edwards (Twelve Titans Music) the label’s first few releases, in close collaboration with APM. 

I moved to Santiago, Chile in 2009 where I have established myself as a composer for film, television and advertising and also co-founded Tonosfera Music which started out as a sub-publishing business and has evolved into a music agency, with Chile’s first national Production Music catalogue distributed internationally. It sub-publishes 12 labels locally which include Liquid Cinema, Songs To Your Eyes, Nightingale, Gothic Storm, Encore Merci, Catapult and Cavendish to name a few. Tonosfera has been the recipient of a government grant in 2018 funded by the Chilean Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage to finance some of its productions focused on exporting national talent and latin genres. Tonosfera also offers publishing and administrative services to national and international artists, working closely with SCD (Sociedad Chilena del Derecho de Autor) to collect performance royalties.
