Pete started composing music in his mid teens, writing quiet, hypnotic piano pieces when not playing bass in high school rock bands. On arriving at university to study film, he quickly found his voice producing sound design and music for short films, working with director Jordan Dean on several projects.
“Sound is a really natural storytelling tool. It engages the audience in a profound way, but it can often be overlooked, because its impact is very different from that of images. In this film there’s a lot going on under the surface that the characters don’t want to talk about, and I can see the sound and music playing a big part in communicating those things.”
