Hamish Brown: Music

Hello, I’m Hamish Brown. I’m a versatile and experienced music producer, media composer and mix engineer. I work with musicians and directors to help them them get the best results from their project. I’ve had music placed everywhere from Hollywood films, cinema ads, dance and theatre to zero-budget passion pieces and most places in between. I also produce records with artists and mix records they’ve already part-recorded. I provide spoken word services, including voiceover, podcast production, tape sync and location sound.

Before doing this, I worked in journalism. I teach a one-day podcasting course for the NUJ in Glasgow – next date: Tue 31 Mar 2020.

I’m currently working on Castle of Light.

I recently worked on Lost Treasure, a commission from Glasgow Short Film Festival to score (alongside vocalist Drew Wright) a new edit of footage shot in 1950s and left unfinished. This screened at festivals UK-wide as part of BFI Cinescore Live.
