Stock Music track: Modern Diagnosis
Underscore to a forensic examination a-la CSI. Evokes images of modern technology, progress, science, forensics and medicine, whilst sounding modern yet organic. Hints of eastern culture.
Born in 1989 in the small town of Hastings in Sussex UK, Leeds University graduate composer and producer Edward Blakeley’s list of achievements reads like a music veteran’s twice his age.
By the age of 18, having already established a foothold in the local music scene, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist, composer, orchestrator, performer and producer founded Sonic Avenue Studios, renting a small commercial unit in nearby Bexhill-on-sea. Gaining experience as not only a studio engineer but also a manager, financier, and businessman the entrepreneur went on to work with Brit Award winning Blair MacKichan (Will Young, Olly Murs, Lily Allan) in both live and studio capacities, and multi-award winning, BAFTA/IVOR NOVELLO nominated composer Richard Jacques (James Bond: Bloodstone, Mass Effect, Little Big Planet 2) working as an assistant and aide, quickly becoming an apprentice composer.
With airtime on BBC Radio 2 at the age of just 20, the young prodigy’s career looks firmly positive ahead, and his compositional and orchestrative techniques have won him composition and sound design roles for feature-length films and multiple animations and video games.
