Since the early 2000s, Andrea has been writing for TV Series before moving onto feature movies over the last 10 years.
Composing for film and television inspires a level of creativity and satisfaction I never thought would be possible for myself. To be able to paint an audio landscape of emotion is truly rewarding.
Chris Cara is a composer, producer and mixer passionately writing and producing for over 2 decades. Creating magic through music is something he believes happens almost instantaneously if the project is right along with his skills to work quickly and at a high quality. Before creating any music, he always wants to understand the vision, this is vital for every step of the production process.
“My music has always been inspired by the rough and beautiful nature and landscape where I grew up. Composing for any visual medium allows me to share my point of view and try to elevate the bonds between the creative team involved and the audience. That's both an exciting and inspirational challenge to take on and very rewarding if things go right.”
“From powerful anthems for the hero’s triumph, to the soaring strings of a romantic kiss, to the piano chords of a broken heart, music is pivotal to the storytelling in film and television. It’s an honor to have responsibility that entrusted in us and it’s the most challenging and rewarding composing I get to do in the studio.”
For me, the joy of composing to picture is the ability to communicate with the world in a way like no other. Music is a universal language - a communication tool that transcends borders. We all experience the same excitement, the same tension, and the same joy, as we immerse ourselves in the beauty of the art, allowing us to form very real human connections with people around the world. To be able to share your ideas and your passion in such a powerful way is simply incredible to me.
“I love the raw emotion and images you can build in your head listening to film music, so I turned my focus to teaching myself more in depth theory, arrangement and production techniques to start creating music suitable for TV, film and games.”
