Introduction

Award winning composer & sound designer Andrew Callaghan brings a highly intuitive approach to storytelling through sound.

A childhood spent strumming piano strings and making noises with a Commodore 64 has been given focus with a classical training in composition. With a Masters of Music from The University of Melbourne under his belt, Andrew composes for film, documentaries, television commercials and gallery installations.

As well as winning recognition in its own right, Andrew's music and sound design has appeared in a number of highly successful projects, including the short film Jerrycan (Cannes Jury Prize), the SBS documentary Paper Dolls (Hugo Awards Special Mention), and the multiple award winning short film Marco Solo.
