Jordan Stevenson |
Film Composer, Orchestrator, Musician
Composer, musician, educator.
With 5 years of experience in media composition, I am the first New Zealand graduate of the Film Scoring Academy of Europe, having trained under the likes Andy Hill and Norman Ludwin.
As a drummer, my music contains a strong sense of the rhythm and movement. I enjoy exploring complex emotions through sound and incorporating digital and ethnic instruments into the orchestra for a clean, modern sound.
I'm a proud member of the Screen Music and Sound Guild of New Zealand with a number of short film credits. When I'm not composing in my home studio, I teach music at a local high school.
Mockups & Orchestral Recording
A good mockup goes a long way, but a live orchestra produces an unbeatable sound. I have the skills to arrange, notate, and prepare music for the scoring stage, whether it's a writing for an intimate piano score or a full symphony orchestra.
The piece below is a hybrid score containing live recordings of a woodwind section from the European Recording Orchestra. They are supported by a mockup of piano, percussion, and a string quintet.
