ABOUT TONY ANDERSON
I discovered my love for music in 2001. I had been experimenting with electronic music, sampling and sequencing - heavily influenced by The Crystal Method and their electrocinematic contemporaries like BT and Hybrid. Everything I wrote for the first decade was awful, so I kept going... always compelled by the idea of offering something fresh to the sonic landscape. To this day, that's what continues to compel me. I'm known for expressing color and temperature through my work; texturing and weaving sounds together with enigmatic delays and nostaligiac melodies. My work is intricate, complex and deep - resulting in music that lives beyond your film.
I describe myself as a Sonic Architect rather than film composer. At the core of that is the idea that I don't want the scope of my music to be limited to cinema. I enjoy films and I love when I have the opportunity to write music for the ones I believe in, but truthfully I never write the music you hear for the films, the directors, the “clients” as we’ve come to call them or any person in particular. I create because it’s in my design to do so. What I write is simply an overflow of interactions I have with pain and brokenness. Some of it comes in dreams - other times it emerges from seasons of sorrow, humiliation, warfare, joy and pain. In each piece I am audibly sharing my heart, and it is the highest priviledge to hear from people who resonate with it.
