Though he learned a lot from recording live bands over the years, he eventually found himself looking for a change and trained to become a teacher, as well as beginning to compose for film and TV. He has now retired early from teaching to focus fully on his music.
Often using acoustic guitar and piano as his starting point, Ken creates music that is immersive and emotional. His work has been used for a wide range of productions, including dramas, documentaries and children’s television, and he has built a strong following on streaming platforms. His acoustic playing style, often interwoven with ambient orchestral and electronic sounds, creates an inspiring portfolio of melodies and rhythms that range from uplifting to deeply introspective.
One of Ken’s favourite things about working on production music is the longevity it affords for his work and the far-reaching impact that it’s had across the world. He’s been composing for MediaTracks for around 25 years, and enjoys the creative freedom that it brings. Outside of work, Ken loves to explore other sides to his creativity. He’s learning more about stop-motion animation, and would love to combine his animation skills with his music one day!
