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 and budget. I’ve had music placed everywhere from Hollywood films and cinema ads to dance and theatre. I also produce/record/mix/master records with artists and provide voiceover, podcast production and location sound services.
