Award-winning composer Gavin Salkeld has been working with sound all of his life and creating music since 1997. In this short time, he has had success at film festivals in both the UK and the USA with his film and music work. He started out making dance music, before moving onto composing ambient and electronica. His output blossomed during the mid-2000s, and to date he has self-funded and self-released seven home studio albums. Before moving into audio production, Gavin wrote, directed, edited and produced around 80 DVDs of his own short films and sketches, and is currently working on re-releasing some of these old works on DVD.
Gavin's first love is composing for film and during the past eight years he has composed original music for almost 60 shorts and features. He works freelance and collaborates with filmmakers around the globe across a variety of projects, whilst continuing to release his music on CD. In addition to writing music, Gavin also provides sound design, sound mixing and audio restoration services for filmmakers on a regular basis. His first-hand experience in almost every area of filmmaking makes him a valuable asset when collaborating with other directors.
GnC Films, Gavin's video production group, also produces the YouTube documentary series Cutting Edge, which examines film censorship around the world.
