Andy and Marten have been composing music together for 25 years and in that time they have composed over 1000 pieces of music for Television, Radio, Film, Production Music Libraries and Computer Games.
Marten's background is as a classically trained pianist. He is a keen jazz pianist and has played in a variety of orchestras, rock bands, jazz quartets and a TV House band.
Andy's background is in recording and production. Having started out as a drummer in various rock and pop bands, he opened and ran a commercial recording studio. It was through this that he and Marten met.
They quickly established a mutual ambition to write music for television and initially gained experience composing soundtracks for corporate videos, radio commercials and live events.
This led to an introduction with the Atmosphere Music library in 1986. Since then, they have contributed tracks to over 40 library music albums and written themes and incidental music for clients all over the world.
Andy and Marten have always felt that the combination of formal musical training on the one hand and instinctive, unconstrained input on the other, have always complimented each other well - leading to a creative partnership that can write a string quartet before lunch, a thrash metal anthem before tea and a song about “dancing with your pants on your head” just before you have to take them off for the night .
They have a Studio, housed in a converted 19th Century barn in South Cheshire and a production and programming facility in Staffordshire.
