about us

We support the dark art of sound

Our composers and musicians are alchemists of angst, experts of edgy, masters of melancholy, creators of creep. They deliver cues, instrumentals, songs, score, and dark cover versions in many genres. Our library is deep and diverse. But we also produce custom music, the perfect sound with the perfect vibe, just for you.

We keep the drama in the music. Our tracks are easily heard and licensed through our one-stop boutique library (via SourceAudio). And rest assured, we’re reachable, we listen, and we deliver great quality on time.

It’s not just that we’re artists - we’re also fans. We LOVE the types of movies, TV, games, and adverts that we create for.

We’re invested, too.
So let’s make something memorable together
