Bringing creative ideas to life with music.
We create melody, we create score, we create songs and good vibes.
We create scale, we create intimacy, we create excitement and joy.
We bang drums, we play guitars, grand pianos and toy pianos.
We chop up, split, filter, stretch, distort and contort sound.
We make a lot of noise all to bring creative ideas to life with music.
